Tuxedo Black w/Red interior, 427/390hp, 4-spd. manual transmission.
The ’66 Corvette was a milestone for one very important reason. Actually 427 reasons, because this was the year that this legendary 427 big block was introduced. And for the first time, there were two different flavors; mild or wild! The wild being the solid lifter L72. But, for those of us wanting something a bit more sedate, there was the new hydraulic lifter L36 427, pumping out 390hp. Both were quite capable of forcing you back in your seat upon spirited acceleration. They just went about it in slightly different ways.
This very sharp example came to us from a client who’s owned it for over 20 years. It’s been frame-on restored and features along with it’s very rare and sought after factory color combination, a matching #’s 390HP engine. Other options include the M-21 close-ratio transmission, a 3:70 Posi-traction differential, an AM/FM radio with electric antenna and (repro) knock-off wheels with Firestone radial tires.
The factory documented build date was March 17, 1966. All stampings and casting codes on the drive train support this date, as do the rest of the #’s. See attached sheet.
Although it has never been NCRS judged, it has won numerous awards at local and regional car shows. This is a classic that runs and drives as good as it looks!
