Hey, Good Looking
Bathed in a factory-correct Ermine White exterior, contrasting Navy Blue cockpit and white convertible top, this grand-prize Corvette Sting Ray convertible looks just like it did the day it was delivered to the Welch Motor Company dealership showroom floor in Raymondville, Texas, the gateway to the Rio Grande Valley, in December 1965.
No expense was spared in making this classic Corvette convertible one of the finest stock-restored Sting Rays in the country today. It features a concours restoration on par with the award-winning Corvettes you’d find at a National Corvette Restorers Society national meet.

Big Block, 4-Speed and Air Conditioning? Yes Way!
In the fall of 1965, word spread quickly of a new high-performance Chevrolet that would quickly become a street legend — the 427ci Corvette Sting Ray. Can you imagine the excitement of the original owner when he sat down at the dealership and special ordered this incredible midyear Sting Ray convertible with the new, stump-pulling L36 427ci/390hp engine?
This mid-year Corvette roadster’s original owner didn’t stop here. He also loaded up his new Sting Ray with the best factory options, cost being no object, including a four-speed manual transmission for the ultimate in classic Corvette F-U-N, factory air conditioning (very rare on a big-block Corvette and even more rare on a big-block convertible!), auxiliary (removable) white hard top, teak steering wheel and cast aluminum wheels. You can see the entire list of this 1966 Corvette convertible’s factory options when you scroll down this page.
So, how much did this grand-prize 1966 Corvette Sting Ray convertible cost new? To answer that important question, we added up the base price and all of its factory options. Are you ready for this? It retailed for over $5,000 new. We call that a fully optioned, midyear big-block Corvette of the highest magnitude and now it can be yours when you help out eight great charities with your donation to win today.
