Without question, the turning point for Corvette came about in the sports car scene when the 2nd generation was introduced in 1963. A revised chassis brought about a 4-wheel independent suspension, and as the years progressed; larger wheels were introduced, larger big block motors, and 4-wheel disc brakes! Amenities like power steering, air conditioning, and leather seats didn’t hurt sales either with more buyers ready to park one in their garage! These cars are arguably the most coveted of Corvettes among collectors worldwide!
We are delighted to have the opportunity to offer this 1966 Corvette Convertible finished in Tuxedo Black (originally code 988- Milano Maroon) over Black Leather interior (factory coded STD.- Black Vinyl)! Options on this example include original & numbers matching HT-code 327ci/350 horsepower V8 mated to the Muncie 4-speed transmission, and AM-code 3.36 Posi-Traction rear end! All major components remain date code correct or numbers matching including Winters intake, Holley 585cfm carburetor, double-hump heads, radiator overflow tank, correct valve covers, and more! The only exception would be the 1967 date-coded transmission, likely a warranty replacement as it bears no VIN identifier. Other features include aluminum knock-off wheels, side exit exhaust system, carpeted floor mats, faux wood steering wheel, working push-button AM/FM radio, power steering, power brakes, auxiliary harp top, and telescoping steering wheel. It was last fully restored 2000, and has been cosmetically and mechanically maintained on an as-needed basis over the years.
The lacquer finish shows exceptionally well with only a few superficial cracks in a few common areas of the paint from age, but does not steal away from an overall very straight, no hit body! It runs and drives excellently and has been carefully maintained by its former owner of 3 years. Recent servicing in January 2019 includes new brake master cylinder & brake fluid, new rear sway bar links, front outer tie-rods, clutch pedal bushings, fresh engine oil/filter, air filter, and engine temperature sender. Always stored in a climate-controlled environment, and never driven in inclement weather, it makes for an excellent collection piece! This is an excellent opportunity to acquire a beautiful, number’s matching Corvette in a very favored color combination! We encourage all prospective buyers to visit our showroom to see this car in person! And, as always, you are welcome to call with any questions! Thanks for looking!
