An awesomely-restored triple-black 1966 Chevrolet Corvette
Convertible is exactly what you've been looking for. It even has
its numbers-matching V8, a close-ratio four-speed, and it's even an
actual mileage car! And today this hot Sting Ray is also a cool A/C
cruiser. So this drop-top will have you going out for plenty of
weekend drivers, and the destination is usually going to be a car
The trim tag tells us this was born a Tuxedo Black car, and that's
quite important. While that makes for a valuable car today, it was
actually the least popular Corvette color in 1966. Rarity and
quality are the cornerstones of getting the big awards at the car
shows. Later C2s are the perfect cars to get in black. The solid
hood and less trim mean there's more space to show off this awesome
paintwork. This car is the product of careful restoration, and they
laid a piano-like finish over the super-straight body. So that
luster has the ideal look for a sunny-day drive. Plus, this car
also has all the best details you're looking for, like the
mirror-like chrome bumpers, side pipe exhaust, and turbine wheels
with knock-off style center hubs. It's a crisp, clean, and vintage
package, right down to the gold line tires.
The black folding top is a quality piece that looks terrific in
place, and when you take it down, you get a full view of the fresh
and restored black interior. So yes, this one is a factory
ultra-desirable triple-black (paint, roof, and interior.) The level
of investment in this one goes right down to the details, like the
working courtesy lights and Delco AM/FM radio. In fact, the only
upgrade you'll notice is one you can't see, but you will absolutely
feel. This was recently upgraded to R134a air conditioning. So that
means you get to stay cool while looking cool behind the wheel
because after all, a Sting Ray like this was meant to be driven.
That's why you have a wood-rimmed sports steering wheel that gives
you an excellent view of the full gauges, including large speedo
and tach. You know that bright stick shift is just calling out for
your right hand.
Under the hood is the numbers-matching 327 cubic-inch V8. You can
tell there was plenty left in the restoration budget to get this
one looking like day one. It inhales deeply with a four-barrel
carburetor, and it exhales with a sweet rumble from those side
pipes. And you have complete control of it all with the Muncie M21
four-speed manual transmission. As you look underneath the car, you
can see more of the difference an investment in quality makes.
Plus, you're reminded of all the great driving features offered on
the '66 Corvette, like the fully independent suspension, power
steering, and four-wheel disc brakes.
The sale comes complete with the owner's manual, build receipts,
and title documentation. You'll even love how you can tell the car
show judges that this actual mileage vehicle has averaged only a
little over 1,500 miles annually. It's all about a total quality
package that brings together rarity, pedigree, and award-worthy
style. Call now!
