1966 Chevrolet Corvette L72

Numbers-matching big block L72 with a factory advertised 425 horsepower that's all you really need to know about this 1966 Chevrolet Corvette coupe. But if you dig a little deeper you find even more great features like the amazing paint, four-speed manual, power windows, and an exceptionally accurate interior.They weren't sneaking around when they painted this one Riverside Red, but when you're driving one of the most fantastic shapes of all time, why not draw a crowd? In reality, a red Corvette always makes us happy because that's the iconic color, and this Stingray is one of the most iconic shapes in the over 60 years worth of history. There is an exceptional gloss and shine on this one, which tells you it has seen careful ownership and the right investments in maintaining a high-quality C2. Complete and pristine chrome bumpers, and all the correct badging only add to this car's award-worthy shine. And on a car of this caliber, of course all the original design elements are still intact, from the power bubble hood, to the bold side pipe exhaust. You even get great knock-off wheels with cool redline tires that match the bold body.Inside, the black interior is the perfect color combination on this car, especially since everything keeps its deep dark appearance that instantly conveys this performance machine attitude. The C2 interior is always a favorite with the now-iconic dual cowl design that's as much a part of the motoring experience as the hum of the engine or rumble of the exhaust. When you sit in the low-back bucket seats and grab the chrome shifter, the atmosphere instantly gets nostalgic. A factory AM/FM radio lives in the center stack, there's the luxury power windows, and yes, even the clock works! The woodgrained steering wheel feels great attached to the telescopic wheel, transmitting the front tires' activities directly to your fingertips, and all the gauges show crisp markings that let you keep an eye on the engine's status. There's definitely something magical about a 427 in a Corvette. So you know it's truly special having the original numbers-matching L72 motor still living under the hood and looking fantastic. The biggest V8 available that year is dressed properly with Chevy Orange on the block and valve covers. Plus, there's a nice bit of flash with the correct ignition shield and chrome air cleaner with 427 decals. And as you look at the details, this engine bay is so correct and tidy that there are even correct GM hoses and clamps. You'll love hitting the road in this big block classic, because it's all about control. The original close-ratio Muncie M21 four-speed allows you to dial in the performance and roar of the sidepipes on a moment's notice; the fully-independent suspension holds the road better than some modern muscle machines; and the four-wheel disc brakes provide superior stopping power.This is the rare, high quality vintage car that you'll love to drive. So while it has had the right investments to take home awards at the car show this weekend (and we have the restoration photos to prove it,) they'll first have to get you off the backroads long enough to park it on the event lawns. This Corvette is the total package, and so it's looking for a true collector. Is that you? Call now!!
