1966 Chevrolet Corvette Coupe
Coupe Car for sale by RB Collection in Allentown, Pennsylvania 18101
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
RB Collection is very pleased to offer this unique, very special, and meticulously restored 1966 Corvette coupe. Beautifully presented in Silver Pearl over black leather, this car is notable for being the very last 1966 model built (VIN#194376S127720), extensively documented and having only 3 owners from new. This spectacular car is loaded with a host of desirable options, including leather interior, teak steering wheel, knock off wheels, side exhaust, power brakes, factory air conditioning, and not least of all the mighty 427/390HP engine mated to a 4-speed manual gearbox.
With a fastidious, body-off, nut-and-bolt restoration finished to concours standards, this car is a proven winner in judged competition. This unique Corvette has earned NCRS Top-Flight honors, backed up with prestigious Bloomington Gold certification. Pertinent judging sheets are included in the sale, along with extensive factory documentation including the Protect-O-Plate, original window sticker, and owner’s packet verifying this cars extensive list of options, as well as its status as the very last 1966 across the line. The restoration presents in gorgeous condition having seen very limited use since it was completed. The beautiful Silver Pearl paint is the original shade, and the car wears desirable factory Kelsey Hayes knock-off wheels, with gold-line tires as originally equipped. The presentation is what you would expect from a restored Top Flight Corvette, with gorgeous paintwork, excellent gaps and authentic detailing from front to back.
The interior is restored to factory-correct standards, with original style leather trim, the original teak steering wheel, and factory air conditioning. Other options include the factory AM/FM radio, tinted glass, and power windows. As with the body, no detail has been overlooked in ensuring this is an authentic and beautifully restored car. Likewise, the underhood presentation is outstanding, with the original, numbers-matching engine showing in factory-correct condition. It runs beautifully and is ready for further enjoyment in top level concours events or club shows.
This marvelous and significant Corvette has exceptional provenance, representing the last of the 1966 models before the C2’s swansong arrived in 1967. The big-block engine, four-speed gearbox, and fully-loaded interior make it a wonderful grand touring car, with huge reserves of torque and a 3.36 rear axle for high-speed cruising ability. Few American cars of the era can top the 1966 Corvette coupe for sheer beauty and on-road presence. The sale of this car represents a rare opportunity to acquire a concours-quality, historically significant Corvette in highly desirable specification. Contact Al Ruozzi for more information on this very special machine.
