What's right for your garage? Below is more information on Stinger lifts. Feel free to contact Gary Cockriel at the National Corvette Museum for more information and help deciding on the product that's right for you at 1-800-205-4248 ext 124 or

A. The Stinger ST model is the most popular residential model. Its rugged one piece 3/16" formed columns coupled together with 156" long ramps provide a solid foundation for safely lifting and storing vehicles up to 7000 lbs. This model, like all Stinger models, has a stunning multi-color powder coated finish touched off with a set of detachable high polished, light weight aluminum drive on ramps and tire stops.

B.  The SC showcase model is not for the timid. This model is synonymous with the popular ST model except its 156" long ramps are outfitted with a polished aluminum surface for that showcase look.  Together with a set of polished drive on ramps and polished tire stops it is tailored made for that one of a kind look for that special play room.

C.  Compared to the standard ST model the stinger ET model sports an additional 10" of vertical height and 20" more ramp surface, giving you a full 74" lift height and 176" drive on surface. This model is great for taller people, longer vehicles, or for those needing to store vehicles over 64" tall under the lift.  It, too, has a 7,000 lb weight cap.

D.  For the large collectors Stinger offers a comprehensive balcony package. Purchase a single portable model such as the ST along with a caster kit, then purchase a single 4 post balcony unit. After this you purchase additional 2 post balcony units that bolt together from your 4 post balcony unit. The user then simply rolls the ST model on casters to the balcony of choice, raises the ramps to the upper deck, locks the lift in place, rolls the car off the balcony onto the mobile lift and lowers it, removes the casters and drives the car away. To load, simply reverse the procedure.

The single point lock release linkage system assures a smooth and hassle free release to the safety locks located on each of your formed columns. This new design offers twice the strength as that of our nearest competitor.

Aluminum Drive On Ramps
Another great standard feature that makes Stinger a first-class system are the detachable drive-on ramps. Weighing in at just 15 lbs. each, these eye catching drive-on ramps are constructed from 3/16" top grade, polished aluminum and measure 39" so low clearance cars can park safely without any drag on spoilers or front end components. Strong enough for a 7,000 pound vehicle, yet eye catching enough for any showroom. The ramps can be conveniently stored inside the parking ramps on ST & ET residential models.
