1966 Corvette Big Block Roadster, black convertible top, white lift off hard top, leather seats, power windows, telescopic steering, teak wood steering wheel, power brakes, power steering, traffic hazard warning, original tinted glass, and a AM FM Delco radio. A factory L72 Special High Performance big block and side pipe car with a close ratio M21 four speed and a posi traction 3.70 rear. The original block was replaced early in the car's life, however the engine has been rebuilt back as closely as possible to original factory specs, including an L88 equivalent comp cam, mechanical lifters, forged domed pistons, new crank, and the high performance vintage heads completely reconditioned including a competition valve job and roller rockers. Have over 30 pages of documentation on the professional Engine/Transmission rebuild and the parts/services procured during the three year frame up restoration. Casting numbers and date codes are available on the rare "961" early 66 corvette replacement block, the original vintage rectangular port heads, and the M21 vintage transmission. GM used two big block castings in 1966-----3855961 and 3869942. Casting 3855961 was used in some very early 1966 corvettes (the corvette in this ad rolled off the line in September, 1965 as number 1719) and this corvette's replacement block is the "961" casting, creating a rare early 66 corvette with a period correct block!
