Offering today is the first year for the new 427ci engine, a rare, highly optioned 1966 factory air, Big Block mid-year Corvette Fastback Sting Ray Coupe.  It features numbers matching 427CI-390HP engine, factory four-barrel Holley carburetor, Muncie M-20 wide ratio four speed transmission driving a 3.70 posi-traction differential. Factory original body/trim tag. Highly desirable original color combination of Sunfire Yellow paint over black leather interior.

Older body-off restoration in museum mint condition. This type restoration currently ranges between $85,000 to $125,000. However, previous owner Ronnie Rains who maintained a huge collection at his veteran-honoring Granite Ranch in Texas, stated that during this restoration, which took from 1986 through 1991, over $200,000 was invested. At that time, few quality reproductions were available, so original panels and New Old Stock parts were often sourced. Recent restoration work includes new fuel floats and needles and seats in the factory Holley carburetor, completely refurbished Muncie M-20 wide ratio four speed transmission by Jody Haag with 100% new internals and new clutch, pressure plate, throw-out bearing and rear yoke, new exhaust from manifolds to mufflers, new belts, hoses, heater control valve, rebuilt headlight motors and more.
This very highly optioned coupe boasts as options:

  • power steering,

  • power four-wheel disc brakes,

  • factory air conditioning (converted to R-134a by previous owner),

  • power antenna,

  • AM/FM radio,

  • hazard warning flashers,

  • telescopic column,

  • back-up lights,

  • day/night mirror,

  • tinted glass,

  • sport wheel covers, and
