Description

427 V8, 4SPD, FRESH HIGH-END RESTO, CORRECT COLORS IN/OUT, SHOWSTOPPER, CLEAN!

A big block 427 with tons of 60s muscle car horsepower – that's all you really need to know to crave this 1966 Chevrolet Corvette convertible. But if you dig a little deeper you find even more great features like a fresh restoration to one of the rarest colors around, a four-speed manual, and an exceptionally accurate interior.

Imagine you had the opportunity to get one of the rarest and most desirable Corvettes that was restored back to better than day one. Keep that in mind as you look over all the details of this droptop. It starts with the paintwork. Trophy Blue is an amazing color especially when paired with the correct dark blue top. In fact, while the Corvette is an all-American this color combo has a downright European flair. This is also one of the rarest colors for '66 Corvette. It was only available that year, which makes this one of less than 1,500 ever built. The paint was refinished as part of a thorough restoration that took place around 320 miles ago. So combined with the exceptional fiberglass, it lines up straight to showcase the creased lines of the C2 body. But more than just great care, it has all the features that make these classics desirable, including the power bubble hood, intricate chrome bumpers shining like mirrors, side pipe exhaust, and of course, the aluminum knock-off style wheels.

Inside, the blue leather interior that matches the soft top ensure that this Sting Ray looks as fantastic no matter if the top is up or open to the world. Just as much attention was spent restoring the interior as the exterior, and so the fresh leather on the seats has that perfect aroma and there hasn't even been enough miles to put a wrinkle in them yet. All your favorite icons are in place – from the wood grain three-spoke steering wheel to the dual cowl dash. And when you pay for this level of quality, even the details have been taken care of like the clock is still ticking away and the factory-style tag is hanging of the AM/FM radio. But what you'll really love about this classic is the intoxicating feeling that comes from rowing through the gears, watching the crisp gauges dance, and hearing the roar of those side pipes.

This was a pivotal year for the Corvette, because 1966 was the introduction of the now-famous 427 cubic-inch V8. And this Sting Ray celebrates it perfectly with the most powerful version still sitting in the engine bay. The largest V8 available that year is dressed properly with Chevy Orange on the block and valve covers. Plus, there's a nice bit of flash with the correct ignition shield and chrome air cleaner with 427ci/425hp decals. And as you look at the details, this engine bay is so correct and tidy that there are even correct GM hoses and clamps. You'll love hitting the road in this big block classic, because it's all about control. The four-speed manual transmission allows you to dial in the performance; the fully-independent suspension holds the road better than some modern muscle machines; and the four-wheel disc brakes provide superior stopping power.

This is the rare, high quality vintage car that you'll love to drive. So while it has had the right investments to get you thinking about NCRS awards, they'll first have to get you off the backroads long enough to park it on the event lawns. This Corvette is the total package, and so it's looking for a true collector. Is that you? Call now!
