#'S MATCHING 327/300HP, CORRECT COLORS, RUNS EXCELLENT, UPDATED AC, NICE CAR!
This gorgeous 1966 Chevrolet Corvette convertible carries its original, numbers matching 327/300 engine, an awesome color combination, and the undeniable appeal of a car that has been loved all its life. If you're looking for one to drive, this maroon roadster is the mid-year Corvette to own thanks the virtues of the lightweight small-block's handling.
Code 988 Milano Maroon is this car's original color, and it's a great look on a Stingray ragtop. Unlike bright red, it has a grown-up appearance that makes the Corvette's instantly recognizable curves look a bit European. The paint is in excellent condition thanks to a recent professional respray of the factory-correct color. It looks especially nice in the sunlight because all the important parts are right. But the real shine comes from the complete and pristine chrome bumpers and all the right badging. Of course, the iconic C2's premium appearance would not be complete without the knock-off wheels.
Inside, the black interior is the perfect color combination on this car, especially since everything keeps its deep black sun-free appearance right down to the upgraded leather bucket seats. The C2 interior is always a favorite with the now-iconic dual cowl design that's as much a part of the motoring experience as the hum of the engine or rumble of the exhaust. A woodgrained steering wheel feels great, transmitting the front tires' activities directly to your fingertips, and all the gauges show crisp markings that let you keep an eye on the engine's status. A factory AM/FM radio lives in the center stack, showing off its unique vertical orientation and yes, even the clock works! You can run comfortably with the wind in your hair through the summer season thanks to the addition of updated, working air conditioning. But for those few times you're caught out in the rain, there is the black folding vinyl top secured under new weather stripping to give you confidence even in wet weather.
The original, numbers matching 327 cubic inch V8 under the hood runs superbly, offering the kind of unobtrusive performance that made the small block Chevy world famous. With smooth torque, it's the ideal companion for cruising. Combine this with the four-speed manual transmission, and the total drivetrain has the ability to humble some pretty serious machinery in the stop light grand prix. It's presented exceptionally well with a tidy engine bay that features the correct details like the Chevy orange paint on the block, ram's horn exhaust, and the bright distributor shield and air cleaner. There's four-wheel disc brakes for better control, and the gold-strip tires have a nice period-correct appearance but a modern aggressive tread.
Numbers matching, manual transmission Corvettes are always in demand. This one just also happens to have the right factory correct colors in a well-maintained package. So where you see value, the rest of the world will just see a beautiful maroon American icon. Call now!!!
