Milano Maroon w/Black interior, L72 427/425hp, 4-spd. manual transmission.
The ’66 Corvette model year brought with it changes. Some options from the previous year, like fuel injection were gone, but in the mid ’60’s cubic inches were king and Corvette wasn’t going to be left behind in that dept. So, the 396ci big block first introduced in ’65, grew to a 427ci big block in ’66! Horsepower was steady at 425, but torque was up slightly on the solid lifter L72. And in addition, there was another big block offered this year; the L36 390hp 427 with hydraulic lifters. And thus, a legend was born . . .
This beautiful ’66 come to us from an old local client. He found the car in KY. and it was all there and in very original condition, but it needed to be restored. So work commenced over a two year period on what turned out to be a complete, nut and bolt, frame-off restoration that was completed in the early ‘00’s. And the finished product was absolutely beautiful and correct! The result of all that hard was rewarded with a Bloomington Gold among other awards. No easy feat! Factory options include rare side exhaust and rarer Kelsey-Hayes knock off wheels! It also happens to be a fantastic road car! Quick as all get-out and a true testament to what a ’66 L72 Corvette should be! Almost $6k in service work just done, including; Rebuilt carb, Tune-up, new brake calipers, brake service, thermostat, oil and filter change, transmission and rear end service.
