Description:

1966 Chevrolet Corvette Roadster

Few can argue that there is a more desirable car than a second generation Corvette Roadster, especially one that has just undergone a complete nut and bolt frame off restoration utilizing modern technology and performance. Here is your chance to own a very nice example. This 66 Corvette convertible has only just over 1100 miles since a complete nut and bolt frame off restoration. The entire process was documented with a build book included with the car that is about 2 " thick full of photos, receipts, and documentation. The GM 525 hp LS3 crate engine really motivates this ride and the 5 speed Tremec transmission makes it a joy to drive. It handles and drives great. It cruises down the highway very well thanks to the overdrive transmission. This car is a complete fresh restoration and performs as such. The 525 hp LS3 engine has a nice choppy idle but still has excellent street manners.
