If you’re in the market for something fun that’s guaranteed to hold its value for a very long time, it’s hard to go wrong with a vintage Corvette. America’s favorite sports car is finally commanding the respect it deserves. And with awesome classics like this Top Flight Sting Ray mixing clean restorations with red carpet curb appeal, it’s not hard to see why. A perfect blend of vintage virtues and everyday drivability, this handsome C2 is a head-turning exercise in old school charm and motor city swagger. And if you’re looking for that rare trifecta of ‘low maintenance’, ‘fun to own’ and ‘great investment potential’, it’s the storied cruiser you’ve been patiently waiting for!

Logging only weekend miles since a thorough, frame-up restoration conducted by Corvette Center of Colorado Springs, Colorado, this striking roadster is a decidedly impressive classic. During its professional rehab, the car’s solid, fiberglass body was thoroughly massaged to correct most of the typical waves and ripples that came standard from GM’s St. Louis manufacturing facility. With those cosmetic semantics complete, a finishing phase took the form of aggressive block sanding. And finally, everything was layered in Nassau Blue base, sealed in glossy clear and buffed to a fantastic, wet-look shine.

With this Sting Ray, the idea was to create a super nice cruiser that can be driven without worry. Whether that means an excellent original piece was refinished to like-new condition, or fresh reproduction items were installed, the car’s caretakers certainly ensured its appearance is both accurate and impressive. At the front of this old school street queen, bullet-style marker lights, show worthy bumpers and a red, white and black header emblem cage a stainless eggcrate grille. Behind that grille, a small block hood flows to straight stainless trim, lightly tinted glass and a bright white top. At the sides of that hood, simple heat extractors and small “FUEL INJECTION” emblems ride between traditional door handles, a classy bowtie mirror, and chambered and shielded side pipes. And at the back of the car, deluxe tail lamps illuminate a chrome-trimmed fuel filler and correct “Corvette STING RAY” emblem above a chrome tag bracket and two more show worthy bumpers.

It’s hard not to notice a second generation Corvette, especially in a spectacular coat of Nassau Blue. And this roadster’s dyno-proven small block will ensure the car is both seen AND heard! At the top of the VIN-stamped mill, correct 7017380 Rochester fuel injection rides between a glossy air cleaner and polished stainless fluid lines. Below that Jerry Bramlett-tweaked box, a familiar Winters intake funnels a perfect air/fuel mixture in to tough, cast iron heads that wear finned Corvette valve covers. When the fossils hit the cylinders, reliable, chrome-capped ignition sparks fresh, stainless-sleeved wires while a stock cam and rotating assembly push spent gases through restored exhaust manifolds. Cooling for that fire is provided by a beefy radiator, which hangs in front of a big, belt-driven fan. And overall, this Chevy’s tidy engine compartment is exceptionally well-done; framing a rebuilt alternator, leak-free master cylinder and pliable hoses in a bright combination of Chevy Orange skin, Satin Black fenders and clean factory decals.

Naturally, the bottom of this pavement-pounding Vette is solid, clean and ready to roll. Behind the hot small block, a tough Muncie 4-speed twists torque to a standard-issue axle. Turns come courtesy of an old school manual steering rack. A full assortment of disc brakes provides solid, confident stops. Impressive, true-dual exhaust funnels spent gases through correctly chambered side pipes. The car’s solid, Satin Black floors perfectly complement a straight, Satin Black chassis. And all that reliable hardware rolls on traditional turbines, which spin 7.75-15 Firestone Super Sport goldlines around small spinner caps.

Open this C2’s tossable doors and you’ll find a striking Blue and White interior that was installed during the car’s extensive rebirth. Seating comes courtesy of firm vinyl thrones, which are anchored between fresh belts, bright stainless trim and a small console that’s centered on a fully functional shifter. From the driver’s perch, a traditional clock and Delco AM/FM radio ride between rebuilt gauges and an aluminum-trimmed glove box. Below that dash, like-new carpet balances translucent floor mats between fresh stainless sills. Above those sills, chrome-trimmed side panels hang monochromatic accents between small armrests, traditional door handles and correct window cranks. In front of the driver, a satin-spoked steering wheel spins a Teak rim around a brilliant cross-flag emblem. And behind the passengers, a fully carpeted storage compartment appears ready-made for stashing trophies.

Speaking of trophies, this sweet Chevy has grown accustomed to being at the front of the pack. In March of 2012, the car earned Second Flight honors. And, in April of 2013, it officially achieved Top Flight status.
