1966 Chevrolet Corvette $77,500

Manitowoc, WI Burgundy · 8 Cylinder · 95,933 miles

Here is an exceptional 1966 Corvette.  It has a complete 52-year history that includes two restorations and the prestigious Duntov Mark of Excellence.  It remains in excellent condition with all numbers matching, and is one of the nicest driving C2 Corvettes I’ve experienced.  This is not your average mid-year.


This Corvette has a G29 date code (March 29, 1966) and was sold new at Rosenthal Chevrolet in Arlington, VA.  Highlights from its history include a first restoration in the late 1980s by its third owner.  It went on to receive Bloomington Gold Certification, NCRS Top Flight Awards (regional and national), and NCRS Performance Verification.  The pinnacle of its accolades came with the Duntov Mark of Excellence in 1990 (only about 1,000 Corvettes in the world have achieved this recognition; there isn’t much higher praise for a Corvette).  It went through another restoration in 2010 which included a $20k repaint from bare fiberglass.


The paint and body on this Corvette are second to none.  All gaps, fit, and finish are first rate.  Of course it remains its original color of Milano Maroon.  All chrome and moldings look great, as do the bezels and emblems.  Same with the grille and side pipe shields.  Rubber seals, window felts, lenses, etc. are all like those of a new car.  And the gold line bias ply tires not only look sharp but also give a very nice ride.


The drivetrain is all numbers matching starting with the HE-code 327ci 300hp engine.  The original stampings and broach marks are very distinct.  Note this engine has never been torn apart, having only received general maintenance.  It is surprisingly powerful, and the side pipes give a fantastic sound that really adds to the driving experience.  The Muncie M20 4-speed transmission is also original to the car, as is the 3.36 Positraction rear end.


The black interior is in mint condition throughout.  Seats, carpet, door panels, headliner, dash, etc.  Everything works properly too, right down to the clock and AM/FM radio with power antenna.  It is a great place from which to experience driving this fantastic car.


This is a high quality mid-year Corvette with a proven track record.  It has been lovingly cared for and driven less than 10,000 miles in the last 30 years.  It comes with a list of all owners since 1966, along with a summary of part numbers and casting / date codes for key components.  There is also a framed NCRS letter of confirmation and reproduction window sticker.  It you’re just looking for an average C2 driver then this probably isn’t the car for you.  However if you want something a little more exclusive than you may have found your car.


All vehicle trades considered, including classics and performance.  I can assist with financing and transport as needed.
