Description

NUMBERS MATCHING L79, 4 SPEED, ORIGINAL COLORS, A/C, NCRS DOCS, HIGHLY OPTIONED

Meticulously restored, a terrific color combo, loaded with features, four-on-the-floor, and the numbers-matching V8 – you can dig into all the details on this 1966 Chevrolet Corvette, but you already know it's an outstanding classic coupe.

Sunfire yellow was only offered for a couple of years, but it seems to capture the era perfectly. That's especially true on a Sting Ray like this that went through a thorough restoration. It gives this factory-correct color an extra radiance that comes from a modern clearcoat – so you know this bright color looks great out in the sunshine. And they spent a lot of time on the details, too. This includes making sure the two-piece bumpers shine like mirrors; the headlight doors fit flush; and the panels uphold the crisp crease that encircles the C2's body. It's no wonder this received the NCRS "327 Concours Award" in 2017 in the recently added Modified Division. Plus, this has some great performance minded-features like the knock off wheel hubs and growling side pipes. And that upgraded stinger hood has a bold black insert that looks terrific against the yellow.

The black paint on the hood is not only a distinctive touch, but also a preview of the highly demanded Al Knoch interior. You can tell there was more of the right investments inside by the way the carpets feel fresh, the panels are crisp, and the leather bucket seats are plush. And it all has a sleek/dark appearance that you want in a true sports car. The darkness is broken up by the best in driving features, like the woodgrained steering wheel, crisp dials on the large speedo and tach, and the polished gearstick is like a beacon calling out to your right hand. Plus, this one has just about every option available in 66', like power windows, telescopic wheel, factory air conditioning, and upgraded headrests.

Under the hood is the original, numbers matching 327 cubic inch V8. It has a show-ready presentation with the Corvette script valve covers, a bright air topper w/callouts, and correct distributor shield. This is the optional L79 motor, and it looks correct, right down to the Holley four-barrel carburetor on top. The V8 exhales with authority out of those side pipes, and you get full control over the power and the thunder thanks to the year-correct four-speed manual transmission. So as much as this restored coupe is a looker, you're also going to enjoy it on the open road. After all, with power steering, four-wheel disc brakes, and a fully-independent sports suspension, this is the classic that really knows how to deliver on of the best vintage sports car feelings around.

The sale comes complete with title documentation, owner's manual, NCRS docs, and build receipts. It's the coupe that was built with the right features, and restored the way you want it. So don't miss out, call today!
