You’d be hard-pressed to find a more pristine example of this iconic split-window sport coupe that’s frequently found gracing the cover of practically every Corvette picture or history book. Restoring this ’Vette was a true labour of love. Parting with it is such sweet sorrow, but it’s now time for someone else to maintain and enjoy. Offered at CDN $130,000. Sebring Silver, 300-horsepower 327, four-barrel, four-speed. First year of the Sting Ray and the only year with the “split” rear window. Body-off-the frame restoration completed.
