The Most Desirable Corvette Ever?

The 1967 Corvette is considered the most-loved Corvette ever produced. The combination of classic C2 styling, along with an incredible array of powertrain and comfort options, makes it one of the most desirable Corvettes ever. Not bad for a car that was never supposed to be made!


The ZR-1's production run from 1990-95 was one of the most exciting times for Corvette enthusiasts in recent memory. In the mid-1980s, rumors of a "King of the Hill" Corvette began to leak out of Detroit and into America's speed shops and dealerships.


Classic Car Overview

By 1966, Chevrolet was already gearing up for a Corvette redesign. Changes for 1966 were minimal from 1965, but one noticeable difference was the eggcrate grille that replaced the horizontal bar style. Another change was the addition of the emblem on the corner of the hood. Though there was talk of a new model being introduced for 1967, something that ultimately got postponed until 1968, sales didnt flinch! In fact, 1966 was a record year for Corvette sales with a total volume of 27,720 units being sold. This particular 1966 Chevrolet Corvette appears to have been a very nice example when the restoration process was started in late 1992. Just two months before the restoration began, this car participated in the Bloomington Survivor event of June 1992 and was judged. That alone speaks to the condition that it was in prior to receiving a restoration. Included with the sale is a binder of receipts showing dates from the 1990s and earlier as well as receipts from any maintenance items that were performed by the current owner. Perhaps the most important invoices included in this binder is the large number of receipts for the restoration. For a restoration that was performed some 27 years ago, it has been well-preserved and taken care of and does show some signs of age, but ultimately is still a 66 Corvette that you would be proud to show off. The burgundy and white color combination is both uncommon and beautiful. The white top is intact, and although it and the paint are both beginning to show their age, this car is still an attractive little cruiser worthy of showing. The redline tires really make that burgundy paint pop! Under the hood is what appears to be the original Chevrolet 327 V8 that still wears the partial vin on the stamp pad. The engine bay is clean and tidy, as should be expected of a restored car. Top end work on the heads was performed in 2009 at the request of the current owner and receipts show that the heads were decked, a valve job was performed, and various other mechanical maintenance services were performed. The result is an original numbers matching engine that fires up extremely easy and has a bit more hp then when it left the factory. This is a Corvette that runs great and is turn-key ready to hit the streets! Perhaps the best preserved area of this car is the interior. It looks almost as if it couldve been restored this year! All of the soft materials are in good condition, and everything seems to be in order. The star of the interior is the real teak wood steering wheel. These wheels are a tough find these days, and a nice original commands a lot of cash! The one in this Corvette is in great shape, and appears to have been refinished when the rest of the car was done. While a plastic woodgrain wheel was available, the real teak wheel is far more attractive and feels warm in your grip like only a wooden steering wheel can. This is a gorgeous example of a 1966 Corvette, priced fairly and ready to cruise! Dont miss your chance to own this burgundy classic.
