We come across ’s in all shapes and sizes but we seldom see a body-off restored one. They did a fabulous job back in the States to a degree not often encountered. The car was dismantles right down to the very last screw. A full mechanical overhaul was also undertaken at the same time. That has left us with a car that we can only describe as being better than new. To be honest we rarely come across such craftsmanship in the States. In many cases this is not necessary with a lot of Corvettes to achieve a good result. On the other hand, if as an owner, you want perfection then you cannot escape a full body-off restoration as is the case with our car. That the first owner specified manual transmission is the icing on the cake.

No wonder the bodywork looks great. The brightwork fits perfectly and the fibreglass bodywork is brilliantly aligned. The Silver Pearl finish suits the car’s “space age” image and also happens to be the original finish the car came with. The quality of the paintwork is very good. The paintwork is unblemished and has a lovely deep lustre. The car has the usual Corvette wheels shod in correctly sized good quality tyres. On inspecting the underside of the car we see that the beautifully painted frame is still in fine shape. The exhaust system too ticks all the boxes.

Inside the car has been fully reupholstered in keeping with the original layout. The seats and dashboard have a black vinyl covering. The dashboard itself is very neat with new large chrome dial surrounds. Every control and instrument piece is in great condition, adding a stunning presence to the cabin. The new carpets have are neatly fitted. The headlining is new and to top it all a new gear knob was included in the works. Every aspect has been professionally addressed and contributes this car’s wonderful allure.

That new gear knob is quite a rare find in second generation versions considering most Vettes were sold with automatic transmission. These days a manual transmission is by far the preferred option, as you will soon discover after taking the car for a spin. The manual is well-suited to the Corvette’s engine and sporty handling. Let us take a moment to praise the previous owner. He did everything right during the restoration. Sometimes people restore the car but forget the mechanics or use old parts. That is most definitely not the case here. The car has been beautifully restored and is mechanically in peak condition. The overall effect is stunning. This Corvette is true to its reputation as a full-bloodied American sports car and drives as a Corvette should.

There is an extensive photo album documenting the restoration. The photos show just how dedicated and thorough they tackled the restoration, from dismantling to putting it all back together perfectly.

This is one stunning manual Chevrolet Corvette C2 Stingray Coupé with handling to match.
