#'S MATCH 327/300, COLD R134 AC, PS, PB, AUTO, VERY NICE CAR, RUNS EXCELLENT!
This 1966 Chevrolet Corvette strikes a nice balance between numbers-matching time capsule and bold street machine.
The second generation (C2) is arguably the most desirable coupe body, and it only gets better when you notice the paint on this one. Butternut Yellow is great way to a add unique touch to this coupe without straying from the GM color palette. But the real reason why it grabs so much attention is because it's part of a full professional respray that gives this paint a much deeper luster than anything from the factory in the 60s. Great paint is key on a '66 Sing Ray because in the C2's later years there was a lot less chrome trim to get in the way of the design lines. Because brightwork was used so sparingly, it really does standout. That's another key to why this coupe looks so good. It sparkles in the right places with new the two-piece front and rear bumpers. Still, it retains its original charm with the correct ribbed rocker panels and factory spinner hubcaps.
You'll want to constantly leave the door open at car shows because everyone needs to see how well the green interior complements the exterior paint. Plus, this is certain to grab attention simple because most other people just have the standard black vinyl inside. Since you are showing this off, it's good that the bucket seats, carpeting, and door panels look so pristine. Everything feels like it should in a '66 Vette – from the woodgrain three-spoke sports wheel to the AM/FM radio. But keen eyes will notice a few nice upgrades. It starts with the modern center console. It's removable if you are going for car show accuracy, but the cup holder will be a true friend if you're into driving your classic. Another great feature for the road trip crowd is the ice cold air conditioning that runs modern R-134a for easier servicing.
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, and yet it still has the ability to humble some pretty serious machinery in the stop light grand prix. You can tell by one look at the engine bay that this motor has gone unmolested for generations. It has that kind of survivor appearance that's popular on the Corvette scene today. And that original "ram's horn" exhaust manifolds connects to a fantastic sounding dual exhaust system for an aural experience you'll never forget. This one cruises effortlessly thanks to features like the Powerglide automatic transmission, power steering, and disc brakes at all four corners.
This is the classic car that's original where it counts, bold where you want it, and upgraded where you need it. It also just so happens to be one of the most desirable shapes in sports car history. A numbers-matching C2 coupe that's built so thoroughly to enjoy might not come along again. Call today!!!
