The 1966 Chevrolet Corvette introduced us to the 427 big block era. Since this is such a legendary milestone in American power, it's awesome to have the numbers-matching L36 motor under the hood. And with the numbers-matching four-speed, a fully independent suspension, Posi rear end, and four-wheel disc brakes, this sleek maroon coupe is the right mix of a true classic that you'll truly enjoy driving.
This coupe has a thoughtful mix of preservation and good investments to keep the nostalgia. The trim tag tells us Milano Maroon paint is its original color. There was a respray in 2009 to continue looking good, but it was a single-stage application to give the right look of vintage quality. And speaking of originality, the body panels are believed to be factory original, and their quality is a testament to enduring care for years. In fact, this has terrific vintage details like Firestone bias-ply tires, factory wheel covers, correct 427 callouts, and even the original 1966 license plate from Wyoming. Overall, it has the kind of clean and crisp look that lets you know it revels in being a true classic.
The black interior looks great against the deep maroon exterior, and the trim tag tells us it's also factory correct. It has a deep and dark appearance on the seats, dash, headliner, and carpet for a nice classic style. You're again reminded about how this one loves to be a true classic with details like the working clock, vertical Delco AM/FM radio, and dome lights that greet you when the door opens. You get all the best driver's features, like the grippy thin steering wheel, a full set of gauges with large speedo and tach, and a bright stick shift calling out for your right hand from within the darkness. There's even an added temp readout under the dash. It's a Stewart Warner unit to give you a classic look while still proving the best info for your drives.
The 427 Corvettes are a true legend today. So you know it's special having the original numbers-matching L36 motor still living under the hood and looking fantastic. It has the bold orange block, matching valve covers, and an overall tidy style that looks quite stock. But don't forget, this one loves to be a driver. That's why it inhales deeper with the newer Holley four-barrel carburetor. The Muncie M20 four-speed manual transmission allows you to dial in the performance and rumble of the dual exhaust. The fully-independent suspension holds the road better than some modern muscle machines, the Positraction rear end Is great for all-around driving, and the four-wheel disc brakes provide superior stopping power.
