Imagine that you could get an L36 427/390 in your Corvette for just $181.20 today. With that in mind, this 1966 Corvette convertible was probably a staggering bargain when it was new. Today, its an investment-grade piece of history with a matching-numbers driveline, sidepipes, and a top-flight restoration. Worth it? Youd better believe it. The Corvette neatly fits into a number of categories: with the 427, its a seriously fast piece of hardware, but the code 988 Milano Maroon gives it an upscale demeanor that puts it right at home with some pretty sophisticated cars from Europe. The restoration was done with that in mind, giving it exacting fit and finish that makes this car look extraordinary even at a glance. The fiberglass shows no issues, no cracks or amateurishly sanded details, and no cut corners anywhere in the work. Two-stage urethane gives that Milano Maroon paint a depth and gloss that other Corvettes will envy, with reflections that look a mile deep. All the chrome has been restored to show standards, too, with correct emblems fitted all around and, of course, those thundering sidepipes that practically define the car. The trim tag calls the black interior "STD," as in "standard" but its anything but. Elegant and inviting, the Stingray interior is one of GMs best efforts, combining form and function with a big dose of style that suits the Corvette perfectly. On this car, of course, everything is new, including the accurate seat covers, door panels, and carpets that show the correct weave. Big, round gauges are all fully operational and easily visible through the woodgrained steering wheel, and the unique vertical AM radio works like it should. Grab the big chrome shifter and slip it into gear and youll feel all 390 horses snap to attention under the hood-theres nothing else like it in all of the automotive kingdom. This roadster also includes a folding black convertible top that stows neatly under the rear deck, and seals up quite well. Theres definitely something magic about a 427 in a Corvette. Thats what legends are all about. This one is the numbers-matching L36, and thanks to hydraulic lifters, its a remarkably docile beast when youre tooling around town, but snarls and roars through the side pipes when youre gunning it. Its dressed for show, with Chevy Orange on the block and valve covers, a chrome air cleaner, and a correct shielded ignition system. Blue stripe hoses with proper tower hose clamps, reproduction decals, and correct original-style hardware gives this car an edge on the show field. Its remarkable how much room the side pipes free up underneath, but it gives you a great view of the nearly flawless floors. The suspension has been fully rebuilt, the disc brakes at all four corners still grab like they should, and it has a great look with gold-stripe tires on steel wheels with spinner hubcaps. If theres one car that defines "investment grade" its this mid-year 427 Corvette roadster. Call today! This vehicle is located in our Atlanta showroom.
