This Coveted & Ultra-Rare Z06 ‘Tanker’ Corvette Sting Ray Could Be Yours

When it was first unveiled in the ’50s, Chevrolet’s now-classic Corvette went on a bit of a rollercoaster ride, first exploding in popularity but petering out shortly thereafter — to the point that GM threatened to kill it altogether. However, it was saved thanks to a group of dedicated engineers led by Zora Arkus-Duntov. A decade later, the brand released what might be Arkus-Duntov’s magnum opus: the 1963 Chevrolet Corvette Sting Ray Z06 ‘Tanker’ coupe. And this one is up for sale.

Powered by a 327 cubic-inch small-block V8 that was capable of up to 360 horsepower, this vehicle was Arkus-Duntov’s wonderful approach at homologating the Corvette for road racing. Of the original 78 built, however, only 50 of these ultra-rare sports cars are still known to exist — and only 5 of them are finished in Riverside Red — making this exceptionally-rare ride all the more desirable. In absolutely outstanding condition, this legendary road racer can be yours for $745,000.

Purchase: $745,000
