C2 STINGRAYS WERE HERALDED AS THE GOLDEN AGE OF CORVETTES
They were a block buster. For the first time the corvette was a sellout success and couldn't supply cars quick enough for demand. They have since become the most desireable of all corvettes.
Their performance goal had the greatest emphasisfocusing on horsepower and second to none roadholding.

The ultimate was the Grand Sport. It is universally recognized as the most valuable and most collectable corvette of all time. This full competition version idolised in the 60s featured in such movies as Fast and Furious.

C2 stingrays are incredibly desirable and iconic, and as such have been owned by celebrities such as Steve McQueen, James Gardiner, Bruce Springsteen, Rick Springfield, Bruce Willis, Robert Downey Jr, Jay Leno, Cindy Crawford to name a few.
The C2 stingray featured in movies including White Sands driven by William Dafo; Conair; 2009 Star trek and Stingray.

1965 was the first year of 4 wheel disc brakes and the vertical exhaust vents in the front fenders replaced the previous non functional fender vents. A dual master cylinder with separate fluid reservoirs was also upgrade of 1965. The spectacular side exhaust system and spinner rims first appeared in 1965 as an option.

HISTORY
This classic was one of our select few we have imported for ourselves. Hence we have discussed the history of the car directly with the previous owner who owned the car as his beloved classic that was regularly driven and maintained for the past 30 years. He prided keeping its original condition in that time.

REGISTRATION
Just the usual roadworthy certificate is needed for registration (and import papers which are provided with the car). Little to do for rego that I am aware of, only the usual headlights (and possibly seatbelts) to be changed to Aust standard ones and the horn and washer water. The rubbers etc may need doing for rwc but it does drive and handle great as it is.


INCLUDES:
Import paperwork
Original USA title
Assembly instruction manual
Two Chiltons repair and tune up guides
Corvette catalogues etc
Original rocker covers

MILEAGE: 62,123

VIN/CHASSIS NUMBER: 194675S119090
ENGINENUMBER: 5119090 FO508HP (=300HP)

 
This is a classic muscle car that is almost never seen in this price range. Every other one in Australia is over $100K and as a regular advisor about importing, the prices in the states are all going up very rapidly so they are only getting dearer here and impossible to find in the states that aren't exorbitant prices. They so very rarely come along in this beautiful, original unrestored drivable condition.
Its not just incredible to look at, its awesome high compression engine and great handling makes it absolutely brilliant fun to drive.
