1 of 2 Known to Exist with this Equipment

From:  Mecum Auto Auctions - Kissimmee, FL 2014, January 17-26, 2014

Sold Price:  $350,000

Without a doubt, this 1964 Chevrolet Corvette coupe must be considered one of the rarest production Corvettes in existence. To date only two other similarly-equipped 1964 Corvettes have been documented. This factory Tuxedo Black-on-Black Sting Ray coupe was delivered new to Roy Hughes Chevrolet in Bartlesville, Oklahoma equipped with the L84 327/375 HP fuel injected small block engine with K66 transistor ignition, close ratio 4-speed manual transmission, 3.70 Positraction rear end, F40 special suspension and off road exhaust, backup lights and a pushbutton radio; significantly it is also one of 38 produced with the rare N03 36-gallon fuel tank and one of 29 fitted with J56 heavy duty brakes. Further adding to its exclusivity is the odometer reading of just 19,584 original miles; it features the original interior, an unmolested engine compartment including all the original fittings, hoses and belts, correctly dated finned aluminum knock-off wheels and the original 6.70-15 Blackwall tires and USA-1 license plate. A fascinating part of the car's history is the fact that it was stored by a previous owner for 17 years in a custom built and fitted plywood container for preservation. Following its discovery it received a painstaking restoration to return it to its pristine original beauty, the final product testament to its quality. A Bloomington Gold Hall of Fame inductee and multiple Special Collection participant, this superb Big Tank Fuelie Corvette is documented with the original window sticker, warranty booklet, registration receipts, NCRS Shipping Data Report and owner's manual.
