The Second-Generation Chevrolet Corvette was sold between 1963-1967 and considered by many as the high watermark for the historic brand. 1966 was a significant year in terms of powerplant offerings for the Corvette. The 427 cubic-inch V8 replaced the venerable 396 as the showcased big-block option. While peak horsepower ratings were about the same, the 427 packed 11% more low-end torque. The frontal appearance was mildly altered with an egg crate grille insert to replace the pervious horizontal bars. In addition, Corvettes received an emblem on the corner of the hood and head rests became an option for the first time. This gorgeous Nassau Blue / Dark Blue 1966 Corvette Coupe is fully restored beauty with numbers matching engine and a new transmission. The owner states 1,000 miles since the 427 cid 390 hp V8 enjoyed a complete rebuild and was mated to a new Tremec 5-speed manual transmission. Additional features include knock-off wheels, leather interior, ice-cold aftermarket AC and Wonderbar audio system. If you are looking for a quality restoration that needs nothing, this is the answer. This 1966 Chevrolet Corvette Coupe is located at our Milwaukee showroom.
