Classic Car Overview

A big block 427 with tons of 60s muscle car horsepower thats 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. Trophy Blue is an amazing color especially when paired with the distinctive white folding roof. 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 the 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 795 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, optional luggage rack, and even the correct wheel covers. While we like the way the light blue looks with the white top, when you take it down, the pairing with the factory-correct dark blue interior is even more attractive. Just as much attention was spent restoring the interior as the exterior, and so there havent even been enough miles to put a wrinkle in the fresh bucket seats. All your favorite icons are in place from the wood grain three-spoke steering wheel, to the dual cowl dash. But what youll 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 the big block. 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 its original big block 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, theres a nice bit of flash with the correct ignition shield and chrome air cleaner with 427 decals. And as you look at the details, this engine bay is so correct and tidy that even the Holley four-barrel carburetor is correct. This big block classic is all about keeping you connected with the road. 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 and high quality vintage car that youll love to drive. Its a true Corvette of distinction, and its looking for a true collector. Is that you? Call now!
