1966 Chevrolet Corvette
Coupe Car for sale by THE VETTE NET in Venice, Florida 34293
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.

Older body-off restoration in museum mint condition. This type restoration currently ranges between $85,000 to $125,000. However, previous owner Ronnie Rains who maintained a huge collection at his veteran-honoring Granite Ranch in Texas, stated that during this restoration, which took from 1986 through 1991, over $200,000 was invested. At that time, few quality reproductions were available, so original panels and New Old Stock parts were often sourced. Recent restoration work includes new fuel floats and needles and seats in the factory Holley carburetor, completely refurbished Muncie M-20 wide ratio four speed transmission by Jody Haag with 100% new internals and new clutch, pressure plate, throw-out bearing and rear yoke, new exhaust from manifolds to mufflers, new belts, hoses, heater control valve, rebuilt headlight motors and more.
