1966 Chevrolet Corvette Roadster
con�cours/kon'ko?or noun. An exhibition or contest, especially a
parade of vintage or classic motor vehicles in which prizes are
awarded for those in the best original condition.
Provenance abounds with this beautifully restored 66 Corvette
Roadster in the form of a two-time winner of the NCRS-Duntov Mark
of Excellence Award, and passing the Performance Verification Test.
This car scored a 97.3 out of 100 at the nationals and has been
displayed in the National Corvette Museum. All paperwork pertaining
to the restoration taking up 2 notebooks, as well as restoration
photos on a disc will come with this car.
Bathed in Milano Maroon this no-fault fiberglass exterior presents
in excellent condition. All original chrome on the bumpers, rocker
cover trim, window surrounds, and hood bump vents, as well as
badging is very good. A black canvas convertible top with a clean
clear plastic rear window are showroom condition and operate
perfectly. 15-inch aluminum faux knockoff wheels are on all 4
corners, and consigner states that original wheels and tires are
available for additional cost if interested.
Black vinyl covers the 2 bucket seats and show in tuck and roll
centers with smooth bolsters. These are inset into a molded plastic
tub and have a surrounding chrome trim at the meeting of the two
materials. Excellent condition would describe the buckets. These
float in a sea of near perfect black carpet, with no fading or
smudges. A center console races up the center, and houses the
chromed shift lever, and ashtray. Moving upward we see the
vertically mounted radio as well as a large working clock and air
flow knobs. The borders of this upward motion go their separate
ways and form the eyebrows that house the gauge cluster which is
perfectly clean, and the glovebox on the passenger's side. The
original restored steering wheel fronts this dash, and on either
side are the pristine door panels.
A numbers matching 427ci 425hp V8 L72 casting number 386992 which
decodes to a 1966 427ci 425hp engine. The engine stamping shows
T0209IP 6115245 which was built at the Tonawanda plant on 2/09/66
followed by the consecutive unit number. The correct Holley
carburetor -#3886 101 EI is topping the correct intake manifold
#3855069. Also, the correct alternator and starter are attached.
Beautiful Chevrolet orange/red covers the block and valve covers.
The entire environment looks like new with shiny supple hoses, near
perfect spark plug wires, and a clean underside of the flip forward
hood. A 4-speed Muncie M21 transmission which is numbers matching
throws power back to a FB stamped code 4.11 gears and was produced
All clean and structurally sound undercarriage with original
fiberglass tubs, and spare tire well. The view from under the
engine looking forward looks like polished jewelry with nary a drip
on the oil pan, shiny bolts, and polished brake covers. Exhaust is
perfect and does not look to have been used very much. Note the
photos of all stampings for verification.
Due to the excellent condition of this car we did not do a
drivability test, although when it arrived the consigner drove it,
and states there is nothing inoperable on the car. You can view the
NRCS Scoring summary.
I can personally tell you that this is a museum piece, is concours
quality on the restoration, and a real excellent overall
presentation. For the serious Corvette Collector, a treasure in a
condition that few exist within. Saying it sat within the Corvette
Museum confines is speaking very loudly as to overall quality.
