Ron jettisoned the Corvette’s front bumper, shaved the door handles, and blocked the body until the fiberglass was as smooth as…well, glass! The result is a modern take on a classic design and it’s sure to look killer for years to come.

The Sting Ray’s gleaming side exhaust pipes look cool, sound cool, and they even help keep the car’s interior cooler, too! “Running the exhaust outside of the car keeps an awful lot of heat from coming through the floor,” explains Ron with a sly smile.

A peek under the ’65’s fiberglass hood reveals an engine bay that’s neat as a pin and chock full of polished billet components. Ron routed the big block’s wiring strategically out of view and even ran the alternator and AC wiring through stainless steel tubing.

Room for two with one heck of a view! Red leather and plenty of billet aluminum play in harmony with the mid-year’s Twilight Blue Pearl exterior. What better way to log some quality seat time!

The coupe has a trick flip-up rear floor that conceals the relocated Optima battery and wiring harness fuse block. Ron also hid a set of remote jumper terminals behind the front wheel. “The car doesn’t have any door handles, and I need a way to power the door poppers in case the battery goes dead,” says Ron.

This mid-year has a ton of attitude and it shows! Ron’s amusing commentary is a subtle touch that’s easy to overlook.

From any angle this car is a winner. It’s hard to believe this was Ron’s first real shot at hot rod building—we can’t wait to see what he has planned for round two!
