RARE FACTORY BLACK CAR, CORRECT WHITE INT, 327 V8, UPDATED 3-SPEED AUTO, DOCS!
Clean, mean, and a true classic from head to taillight. This 1966 Chevrolet Corvette is one of those complete convertibles that will make you long for those summer nights where you can hear the V8 roar and let the neon reflect off the mirror black.
Later C2s are the perfect car to get in black, especially when it's the factory-correct color (Code 900). The solid hood and less chrome mean people can really take in all the angles of the mirror shine that comes from a good waxing. And let's face it, if you own a car that looks as cool as this, you'll be the first person out every weekend washing this convertible at the front of the driveway so the whole neighborhood can see. You'll love shining the trim that's complete from the thin bumpers to the factory wheels. There are even a few small spots of patina to tell everyone it's real on this classic. But more than just a pretty face, the '66 cars have a reputation for a better build quality, and that continues to today on this convertible. Just look at the panel alignment and feel how the door shut with authority. That sensation has remained thanks to decades of good care.
The black vinyl folding roof does a great job of keeping this one secure from weather, but you'll love keeping it down for as long as possible. That way the would gets a better glimpse at the pristine white interior. This is the factory original color combination (Code 450), but we're guessing some money was invested getting the bucket seats, center console, and door panels back to such a bright condition, because it looks like it has barely seen any seat time. More good news is that this Corvette correctly retains its black carpeting, so you can hop into your pristinely white interior without taking off your shoes. From there you get to grab the slender three-spoke steering wheel, and beyond that is a full array of gauges keeps a comprehensive eye on the engine. If you're passenger needs to be entertained, too, he/she can command the AM/FM radio and heat/defrost controls.
Under the clamshell hood is a 327 cubic-inch small-block V8. It presents nicely with elements like the chrome air cleaner, fined valve covers, and ram's horn manifolds. But beyond its appearance there are performance upgrades such as the Edelbrock intake and the QFT Slayer four-barrel carburetor. That delivers an extra punch or power from the legendary V8, and you better believe it's also heard out of the dual exhaust. But a convertible this cool is also meant for cruising. That's why you have comfortable driving features such as the three-speed automatic transmission, power steering, front disc brakes, and BF Goodrich redline radial tires at all corners.
This is a black beauty that you'll be proud to show off. It even comes with the owner's manual and reproduction window sticker so you can talk about the original color combo. It has stunning looks on the outside and an upgraded heart under the hood. That sounds like the perfect combination for a classic 'Vette. Call today!!!
