Description
 
When you restore a car, you have an opportunity to build something just the way you would have ordered it new. Take this 1966 Corvette roadster, which is one of the best-driving mid-year Corvettes weve ever featured, and for good reason: theres an L79 under the hood, a 4-speed behind it, and a bunch of desirable options like factory A/C built in. Its not 100% the way the factory built it; Id argue that its better! The trim tag says it was originally Ermine white with a black vinyl interior, but few would argue that the recent repaint in brilliant Rally Red wasnt a big upgrade. Fit and finish are outstanding, as youd expect for a car at this level. Lots of time went into the bodywork, erasing all the blemishes and lining everything up just right, and with Corvette fiberglass, its particularly important to keep the edges sharp and crisp. Once the surface was ready, several coats of brilliant red paint were applied, and its exactly right-you want a red Corvette, this is the reddest. Its also one of the shiniest, thanks to a professional wet sand and buff on the surface, which erased any traces of orange peel that gets in the way of the shine. Aside from being much, much nicer than it was in 1966, there are no real deviations from showroom specs, so the chrome trim, the emblems, and the raucous side pipes are all in place. The trim tag also says STD for interior, but the standard buckets were restored with black leather and its a very welcome upgrade. Like the bodywork, the interior was given a full makeover but sticks to the original specifications, so you wont see modern buckets or an aftermarket wheel. Instead, its built the way you might have ordered your dream Corvette in 1966 if youd had unlimited resources at your disposal. The gauges are clear and crisp, the woodgrained steering wheel is beautiful, and yes, thats factory A/C flanking the fully operational clock. Theres an aftermarket AM/FM/cassette stereo, but if youre really a purist, thats easy to fix and if not, youll enjoy the ride that much more. A white top looks even better against the red paint than it would have when the car was white and stows under the rear deck without a lot of effort. The engine is a date-code correct 327 cubic inch V8 rebuilt to 350 horsepower L79 specifications. Theres something special about a high-winding, high-compression small block that this car embodies perfectly, encouraging you to run it through the gears and listen to the insane exhaust note through the side pipes. The engine bay is quite stock-looking, with a correct Winters intake, finned valve covers, and factory cast iron exhaust manifolds. It starts and runs quite well, with a slight lope to the idle that tells everyone this car means business, and for balance, there are few better road cars than a small-block powered Corvette roadster. The 4-speed rips through the gears and feels so tough youll look forward to barking the tires on the 1-2 shift, and thanks to a rebuilt suspension with composite leaf springs, handling is impressive. Classic knock-off alloys are fitted with 215/65/15 Goodyear rubber that fits right without looking too modern and fat. Is this the Corvette youve always dreamed of owning? All the right ingredients are there, wrapped in a fantastic restoration thats ready to cruise. Call today! This vehicle is located in our Dallas/Fort Worth showroom.
