RESTORED & VERY CORRECT! TRIPLE BLACK, #'S MATCH 327/350HP L79 V8, 4 SPEED, WOW!

Imagine that you could get an L79 327/350 in your Corvette for just $105 today. With that in mind, this stunning 1966 Corvette convertible was obviously a staggering bargain when it was new. Today, it's a formidable performer that looks fantastic after a full frame-off and drivetrain restoration, offering a matching-numbers engine and 4-speed gearbox, an awesome triple-black color combination, and factory side pipes that bump the stock horsepower to 365. Oh, and it's also packed with top-end factory options, meaning this triple-black droptop is incredibly rare as well. Worth it? With very little miles logged since the frame-off restoration, you'd better believe it!

The Corvette neatly fits into a number of categories: with the 327/350 (again, boosted to 365HP with the side pipes, and even more so with the performance goodies that were added during the rebuild), it's a seriously fast piece of hardware, and the Code 900 Tuxedo Black paint gives it a high-visibility sinister look that's just about right for a vintage Sting Ray. The professional frame-off restoration was done with exactly that in mind, giving it an exacting fit and finish that makes this car look great even at a glance. The ...

RESTORED & VERY CORRECT! TRIPLE BLACK, #'S MATCH 327/350HP L79 V8, 4 SPEED, WOW!

Imagine that you could get an L79 327/350 in your Corvette for just $105 today. With that in mind, this stunning 1966 Corvette convertible was obviously a staggering bargain when it was new. Today, it's a formidable performer that looks fantastic after a full frame-off and drivetrain restoration, offering a matching-numbers engine and 4-speed gearbox, an awesome triple-black color combination, and factory side pipes that bump the stock horsepower to 365. Oh, and it's also packed with top-end factory options, meaning this triple-black droptop is incredibly rare as well. Worth it? With very little miles logged since the frame-off restoration, you'd better believe it!

The Corvette neatly fits into a number of categories: with the 327/350 (again, boosted to 365HP with the side pipes, and even more so with the performance goodies that were added during the rebuild), it's a seriously fast piece of hardware, and the Code 900 Tuxedo Black paint gives it a high-visibility sinister look that's just about right for a vintage Sting Ray. The professional frame-off restoration was done with exactly that in mind, giving it an exacting fit and finish that makes this car look great even at a glance. The fiberglass shows zero issues, no cracks or amateurishly sanded details, and no cut corners anywhere in the 'open-checkbook' restoration at the hands of skilled artisans. Two-stage urethane paint offers a depth and gloss that other Corvettes will envy, with reflections that look a mile deep and can only be seen in black paint. And if you're going to paint it black, you better get it right because every single blemish will show, so it's obvious that the best-of-the-best finished this Sting Ray. There might be some very light signs of use, but let's not be confused here, this is an absolute stunner that drops jaws everywhere it goes. The big block 'stinger' hood is arguably one of the best-looking ever fitted to a Mid-Year Corvette and someone took the extra time to make sure that it fit flush too. All the chrome has a terrific shine, with correct emblems fitted all around and, of course, those thundering Code N14 side pipes that practically define the car.

Black leather bucket seats are the perfect complement to the Tuxedo Black exterior, and rarely have we seen more inviting surfaces in an early Corvette. In fact, if you look-up what experts like Corvette historian Nolan Adams have published, there were less than a handful of Triple Black C2s ever made, even less with these exact options. Frankly, this may have been the only loaded '66 triple-black convertible ever made. Sporting yet inviting, the Sting Ray interior is one of GM's best efforts, combining form and function with a big dose of style that suits the Corvette perfectly. On this car, of course, everything is restored, including the accurate seat covers with factory headrests (Code A82), matching door panels, and plush black carpets that show the correct weave. Big, round gauges are all fully operational and easily visible through the correct Code N32 Teakwood steering wheel atop a factory tilt column, and you will note with some interest that this car has a Code U69 vertical AM/FM radio and Code C60 factory A/C (now blowing cold R134a air), so you know the original owner wanted this droptop loaded back in 1966. Grab the gorgeous teakwood steering wheel, slot the big chrome shifter into gear, and you'll feel all 365+ horses snap to attention under the hood; there's just nothing else like it in all of the automotive kingdom. This roadster also includes a folding black convertible top that stows neatly under the rear deck, and seals up quite well thanks to all new weather-stripping.

There's definitely something magic about a powerful small block V8 in a Corvette, and that collective reverence felt by millions of fans is exactly what legends are all about. This one is the numbers-matching 327 L79 with a factory High-Lift camshaft and dome pistons, which was the nastiest small block powerplant on the streets in the mid-60s. In addition to the high-lift cam, during the rebuild the block was augmented with Edelbrock Performance aluminum heads, an aluminum high-rise cross flow manifold, and an Edelbrock Performance Series 4-barrel carburetor. It's a remarkably docile beast when you're tooling around town, but snarls and roars through the side pipes when you're gunning it and despite the big horsepower number, it doesn't seem to get cranky. It's dressed properly, with Chevy Orange on the block, finned valve covers, a chrome air cleaner, and correct blue stripe cooling hoses, plus the all-important '327' decal on the air cleaner. There's also an upgraded alternator and A/C compressor, chrome distributor shield, and a big aluminum radiator that keeps the whole show nice and cool. It's remarkable how much room the side pipes free up underneath, but it gives you a great view of the very tidy floors and prove that this is a Corvette with nothing to hide following the frame-off restoration. Code J50 power 4-wheel disc brakes and Code N40 power steering are a great idea in a car with this much horsepower and the reproduction Code P48 knock-offs look great and are shod with stock-looking Michelin 215/70/15 whitewall radials that take you back to 1966 all over again.

Perfect to drive and show while it appreciates, this Corvette hits all the right buttons and has a pedigree to match. Offered with a reproduction window sticker, owner's manuals, NCRS docs, and loads of restoration photos, this Sting Ray checks all the boxes. Call today!
