1966 Chevrolet Corvette Convertible
1966 Corvette Convertible.
Was a Small Block in Silver,...Now a Big Block 427 in Rally Red.
3963 512 Casting Number!
Now,...this 512 Motor should be extremely interesting to those Muscle Car People.....this is a very valuable block. The 512's were used in mostTop Level Performance Chevrolets.
Customer Exchange Block.
I would drive this car any distance with total confidence.
Tracks True - Handles Great - Stops Well - Steers Perfectly - Nice.
High Quality Driver Condition as you would be crazy to drive a Real Mid Year 427 Big Block due to their value.
The Exterior Condition.
Beautiful Paint showing clear reflective qualities on all panels. The shine is deep, the color hues are even on all panels and the soft top is newer also in nice shape.
The Wheels are very nice too,....Knock-Off & Gold Line Tires,....a terrific look.
The Chrome bumpers shine well and the side pipe covers are too.
The car stands square on the road,...a very nice street stance indeed.
On the High Quality Driver Scale of 1 to 10,...she's a 8 to 8.3721:)
The Interior Condition.
A step off the exterior condition....maybe a 7 inside. It's nice,...but there could be some re-finishing work to bring up that score. Overall,...it''s still a nice place to sit and be seen.
The seats sit well,...they're full color and the rugs are nice with a slight fade to them.....as in not totally black,...but 80% color lets say.
The Dash Gauges Work,...yes,...even the tach. Notice the glove box door,...it's less than perfect,...but nice for an original.
A dash detail specialist would make this look new again without doing much,....or if you're like me,...a weekend of masking off the dash and some SEM Interior Paint,...and she'd look new,...but still not bad,....just not new:)
Okay,...now for the fun part. This baby runs like a thief! It's over 400 horse,...that you can feel. Now,...I don't know if it's 425 or 435 or just how much over it is,...but boy can it run!
The Side Pipe Exhaust sends a note to all that it's something special.....the Note is absolutley 427 POWER!
Get in,...flcik the key and go anywhere at anytime at any speed you're comfortable driving. This 427 is extremely well tuned,...it's very fast,...it drives like a muscle car should.
The Electric Fan keeps it cool even on 100 degree days like today as I shot these photos,......I had a blast driving it.....I would say one of the best Mid Years I've driven.
The engine bay is not pretty,....but to keep our costs down,...we left it the way our Corvette Collector made it,...a DriverTo DRIVE! ..........with the hood closed:)
If you want the Air Cleaner, Valve Covers and proper hoses for a little better look,...we can order and install them here if you wish.
Please expect a Gorgeous '66 that's ready to hit the road at your beckon call.....as in ....."Instantly At Your Service".
It's not perfect,...but so nice that you would be madif something scratched it,....but....not totally Crushed like those who paid well into the 6 figures for those NCRS Top Flite cars. This is a Vette you can enjoy,...it looks right,...it drives wonderfully and one you can totally enjoy and trust.
Call me if you have any questions,..my name is Joe.
