The owner of this 1970 Chevy Corvette Stingray bought this car from the original owner’s family. Equipped with a 427 and a 4-speed transmission, this Stingray is a sight to behold.
The original owner had a connection to the movie “The Sting”, and therefore the car was repainted with a “The Sting” motif. After the original owner passed away, his daughter sold the Stingray to our client. We then rebuilt all the suspension, corrected the exhaust, and did some other engine-related maintenance.
This 1970 Chevy Corvette Stingray belongs to the third generation of Corvettes produced between 1968 and 1982. Patterned after the Mako Shark II concept car, this generation of Corvettes sported the first use of T-top removable panels. In 1970, the body design of the Corvette was updated to include fender flares, a redefined interior, and indicator lights near the gear shift that were one of the earlier instances of fiber optics.
The movie “The Sting” was released on Christmas Day in 1973, and takes place in 1936. The film is about a small time grifter, Johnny Hooker, that unknowingly steals from a big crime boss. When the crime boss demands compensation from Hooker, Hooker ends up pulling an even greater con on the crime boss with the help of other con artists.
