DESCRIPTION

Numbers-matching big block L72 with a factory advertised 425 horsepower - that's all you really need to know about this 1966 Chevrolet Corvette coupe. But if you dig a little deeper you find even more great features like the rare color, four-speed manual, and cold-blowing A/C that make this rare Sting Ray the kind of classic you'll love to enjoy to the fullest.



Trophy Blue is an amazing color. 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 later in life. Today it makes for a solid presentation but you won't be afraid to drive it. After all, a big block Corvette is supposed to be experienced out on the streets. And on a car of this rarity, it's great to see all the original design elements are still intact, from the power bubble hood to the bold side pipe exhaust. You even get great knock-off wheels with a nice set of modern Goody Eagle tires.



While black interiors are nice, the factory-correct dark blue is even better. After all, you still get the deep tones you want in a mean performance machine, but now with an added sophistication that goes great with the blue exterior. The C2 interior is always a favorite with the now-iconic dual cowl design. When you sit in the low-back bucket seats and grab the chrome shifter, the atmosphere instantly gets nostalgic. A factory AM/FM radio lives in the center stack, there's the luxury of upgraded air conditioning. The wood-rimmed steering wheel feels great, and it's attached to the telescopic column and power steering. And all the gauges show crisp markings that let you keep an eye on the engine's status.



There's definitely something magical about a 427 in a Corvette. So you know it's truly special having the original numbers-matching L72 motor still living under the hood and looking fantastic. This was rated at the highest horsepower, and only about 5,500 were optioned this way. It's ready to show off with a tidy style and plenty of polish. But don't forget, this one loves to be a driver. That's why you have a newer Holley four-barrel carburetor, a GM Winters intake, MSD plug wires, and an aluminum radiator with electric fans. It all makes for the right combination of both powerful and hardy to give driving confidence. So you'll love hitting the road in this big block classic because it's all about control. The four-speed manual transmission allows you to dial in the performance and roar of the side pipes at a moment's notice; the fully-independent suspension holds the road better than some modern muscle machines; and the four-wheel power disc brakes provide superior stopping power.



This is the rare and high-quality vintage car that you'll love to drive. It's a true Corvette of distinction, and it's looking for a true collector. Is that you? Call today!
