This 1966 Chevrolet Corvette has its original L79 V8 motor, four-on-the-floor, a terrific color combo, and plenty of investments over the last decade – including A/C.
This car was purchased in 2010 by the consignor. While it was already a nice numbers-matching car, in the past decade there have been thousands $$$$$ invested in really getting it looking awesome. The factory-correct Rally Red paint has the kind of modern clearcoat luster that really makes this car pop when the sunshine finds it. It also helps that there has been nice attention in making sure the crisp lines of the Sting Ray are looking great. Plus, the bumpers, rocker trim, and knock-off style wheels are also looking bright. This comes with the color-matched hardtop for a coupe-like appearance. But there is something particularly striking about the combination of the white folding roof and the whitewall tires.
Of course, a car like this is meant to be open to the world. So the factory-correct red interior offers an awesome full red package. Just like the exterior, you can tell the last decade of ownership was about investing in a car that looks great. So you have supple leather bucket seats, a grippy wood-rimmed steering wheel, and a bright gearstick in the ideal position for your right hand. While this one has a great classic look – right down to the AM/FM radio – there is one upgrade you're going to love. Cold-blowing modern R134a air conditioning was a big investment here, and it means you can enjoy top-down motoring long into the summertime.
Under the hood is the original, numbers matching 327 cubic inch V8. This is the optional higher-compression L79 motor, and that means it was rate at 350 horsepower when new. It has a great look today with polished components like the air topper, distributor shield, and racing flags valve covers. Plus, it has the look of proper investment everywhere from the alternator to the hoses. The V8 inhales deeply with a four-barrel carburetor, and it exhales with a sweet sound out of the newer dual exhaust. You're in complete control over this full power package thanks to the four-speed manual transmission. In fact, control is a central theme to a car like this. That's why this C2 has a fully independent sports suspension, power steering, and four-wheel disc brakes. Even those classic whitewalls hide a modern tire tread.
The sale comes with over $15k in receipts documenting the investments over the last decade. This is a great-looking classic Corvette with the features you want. So don't let it slip away, call today!
