Slash’s Corvette

Feb 24, 2011

Ever wonder what it’d be like to live the rock star lifestyle of a legendary guitarist such as Slash? One way to get a taste might have been to steal a glance at him driving down Sunset Boulevard, windows down, in his 1966 Chevrolet Corvette Stingray Sports Coupe.

Or better yet, own it.

Slash’s black ’66 is equipped with a 427-ci V-8 engine with 435 hp, 4-speed manual transmission, power steering, 4-wheel disc brakes, Holley 4-barrel carburetor, egg-crate grille, air conditioning and stock spinner-delete Stingray wheels.

It includes a power bulge hood that hints at the big-block engine that lurks beneath.

Slash purchased the highly coveted ‘Vette in the 1980s during the height of Guns ‘n Roses’ popularity.
