We love seeing things that have a great balance of form and function, and this old Corvette Sting Ray certainly fits into that category. Not only is this C2 Corvette Sting Ray seemingly mint, it also served as a fully functional rally car. This Corvette has some history behind it, too, as it was rallied by Duncan Robb-Cummings in the Monte Carlo Challenge from 1998-2001, as well as other racing events, and has been featured in multiple magazines.
With a 340 ci V8 matted to a four-speed manual transmission, the 1964 Chevrolet Corvette Sting Ray Rally car puts out roughly 350 horsepower. And that’s healthy power, too. As the past 12 months and a little more than £12,000 has been spent on the Corvette to get it up to snuff so it can cross the Bonhams Auction block during Goodwood Festival of Speed on June 26.
The carburetor and fuel pump have been refurbished, all brakes have been removed and rebuilt, new emergency-brake cable, new wiring loom, the list goes on. Fortunately, all the receipts have been saved so that the new buyer can see why this rally ‘Vette doesn’t feel like a race car with nearly 83,000 miles.
Hopefully the new owner has some off-road fun with it, and knows how to use YouTube.
