You are viewing a 1966 Chevrolet Corvette with a matching numbers 327 V8 and automatic transmission showing 49,721 miles. I have owned this Corvette for a couple years and during that time I've done some nice upgrades and improvements that I feel make a wonderful car to drive just about anywhere. In fact, I wouldn't be averse to driving the car out to you if you become its new owner and happen to live east of the Mississippi. Its just that dialed in and fun to drive. The motor was rebuilt two summers ago so that its fresh and pulls strong, maintains a nice temperature and great oil pressure. Note these two items in the video. I put new brake calipers on the front and added the American Racing wheels and BFG's too. The seats are freshly leathered and the am/fm stereo was refurbished to go with a new center dash speaker with some added output so it sounds really incredible. As I said, my goal was to create a great road going Corvette that could be used on roadtrips as well as for shows and cruises, and I feel I've done just that.
As you can see in the photos, the color combination on this Corvette is absolutely stunning. That beautiful dark blue paint is the primary reason I purchased this particular Corvette, as you just don't find them that often, especially with an automatic transmission and matching numbers motor. I figured it would hold its value very well with these nice features. The paint appears to be a high quality lacquer that was applied decades ago, so it shines very nicely but it also has some spiderwebbing that's pretty typical of old lacquer. I've included some photos of this for you to view.
Otherwise there's not much more I can say except that this Corvette is just great fun and brings smiles everywhere it goes. If you have any particular questions, or you'd like to see something I haven't captured in my photos or videos, let me know and I can usually shed some light on that area for you. And I urge you to come view this piece of history in person before you decide whether or not its for you. I'd like to see this one go to an appreciative home, so I'm relatively negotiable on price and would even consider partial trades if you need to clear a spot in the garage and don't want to deal with selling your current classic online.
