Bill Mitchell introduced the world to Chevrolet's most iconic styling of the Corvette with the Larry Shinoda-designed Stingray in 1963. Corvettes have always been sexy and this year's model was no exception with its power bulge hood that hints at the big block engine that lurks beneath. Slash's Black '66 is equipped with a big block 427 cubic inch V-8 engine with 435 horsepower, 4-speed manual transmission, power steering, power brakes with 4-wheel disc brakes, Holley 4-barrell carburetor, egg crate grille, air conditioning and stock, spinner delete Stingray wheels.
