Corvette

The 1966 Corvette now featured an egg-crate front grille and functional engine compartment cooling vents. More important than that, the Corvette was now optional with a 427 big-block offering 390 or 425hp.

Three 4-speed gearboxes were available: the wide ratio, close ratio, and heavy-duty close ratio.
