RK Motors Charlotte is home to some of the coolest muscle cars on the planet, and we’ve built our reputation on bringing you some of the best Chevrolets your money can buy. Over the last six years we’ve sold a plethora of second generation Corvettes, and when we tell you this Rally Red roadster is one of the market’s best combinations of performance and style, it’s coming from first-hand experience. Not only is this Chevy a numbers-matching roadster, it sports a quality, body-off restoration that was completed in the summer of 2015. Now that we have your undivided attention, it’s our pleasure to bring you the latest in our line of awesome Corvette convertibles!

BODYWORK/TRIM

Assembled at GM’s storied St. Louis manufacturing facility on December 6th, 1966, and rolling out of a professional restoration in the summer of 2015, this polished drop-top currently reflects correct code 974 Rally Red 2-stage. That bright pigment highlights a sea of solid fiberglass that, thanks to the rebuild, presents exceptionally well. Of course, that fiberglass wouldn’t be as solid had the car not spent most of its life in the possession of dedicated enthusiasts. And today, roughly 170 miles later, this vintage cruiser is a clean, well-maintained classic that’s ready to drop jaws and carve curves!

Red Corvettes are literally the stuff dreams are made of, and, thanks to acute attention to detail, this razor-sharp roadster is the epitome of legendary American motoring. At the front of the car, bullet-style marker lights, mirrored bumpers and a red, white and black cross-flag emblem cage a stainless egg crate grille. Behind that grille, a correct small block hood flows to matte wipers which, along with polished stainless trim and tight black canvas, frame a factory-tint greenhouse. At the sides of that glass, simple heat extractors lead traditional door handles, a classy bowtie mirror and a factory antenna. And at the back of the car, dual-mode tail lamps split the difference between mirrored bumpers, a chrome-trimmed fuel filler and a correct Sting Ray emblem.

ENGINE

Tilt this Corvette’s lightweight hood and you’ll find a 327 cubic inch L79 V8 that hangs a September (J) 13th (13), 1966 (6) casting date and familiar 3892657 casting number behind a high performance “HT” suffix stamp and matching 105372 partial VIN. Introduced as a formidable companion for street prowling Sting Rays, this high performance small block left the factory twisting solid 10 to 1 compression into a stout 350 horsepower. At the top of the spry mill, a polished air cleaner funnels wind in to a correct Holley carburetor that’s threaded onto requisite stainless fuel lines. Below that juice box, a familiar Winters intake perfectly complements finned Corvette valve covers. At the back of that intake, chrome-cased ignition shoots spark past correct exhaust manifolds. And at the front of those manifolds, a stamped radiator cycles coolant through pliable hoses and old school tower clamps. Naturally, brilliant Chevy Orange paint coats the engine from its clean oil pan all the way to its polished oil filler and, as always, looks great against GM’s Satin Black bay. As expected, correct textures and decals are present and accounted for. And details like a correct alternator, a familiar Harrison expansion tank and a tagged Delco battery ensure this Chevy runs every bit as good as it looks.

DRIVETRAIN/SUSPENSION

Flip this Vette upside down and you’ll find a solid, no-hit chassis that’s in good shape and, thanks to minimal road time, still bears a striking resemblance to how it rolled out of the restoration shop. Behind the 327, an original Muncie 4-speed hangs a familiar 3885010 casting number next to a Muncie (P) assembled on September (P) 8th (08), 1967 (7) build stamp and matching 105372 partial VIN. Naturally, that gearbox twists a familiar Corvette third-member. At the ends of the car, a tagged double A-arm front and independent rear suspension is completely sorted down to its tough transverse leaf, standard manual steering and Gloss Black control arms. Above those sturdy bones, clean floor tubs ride a straight, Satin Black frame. At the corners of those floors, standard disc brakes mix good handling characteristics with quick and solid stops. At the edges of those brakes, old school side-pipes disperse a fantastic soundtrack. And red-trimmed turbines twist 7.75-15 BF Goodrich Silvertown redlines around monochromatic bowties.

INTERIOR

Between this C2’s doors you’ll find a Standard Black interior that’s been fully restored to factory specifications. Tight vinyl seats frame a thin console that’s equipped with a correct chrome shifter. In front of that shifter, a monochromatic dash hangs rebuilt telemetry over a correct Delco AM/FM pushbutton radio. At the sides of that dash, stylish door panels melt in to fade-free carpet. In front of the driver, a faux Rosewood steering wheel laps a familiar cross-flag emblem. And behind the passengers, a fully carpeted storage compartment provides some much needed space.

This numbers-matching Vette has it all: great looks, excellent power and a fresh restoration that would take years to duplicate. If you’re in the market for some solid Detroit muscle that’s poised to build equity for years to come, you’re looking at your next classic!
