1966 Chevrolet Corvette CONVERTIBLE

"TRUE NO RESERVE AUCTION"FOR A 1966 CORVETTE CONVERTIBLE
EVERY CLASSIC VEHICLE HAS A BACK STORY AND THIS TORCH RED 66 CORVETTE CONVERTIBLE IS NO EXCEPTION. THE BEST THE PRESENT OWNER AND RESTORER OF THE VETTE COULD GATHER 11 YEARS AGO WHEN HE PURCHASED IT. THE CAR STARTED LIFE AS A 390HP 427 BB WITH A FACTORY 4SP AND AC. THE CAR HAD A NON-ORIGINAL, VERY RARE 1969 GM 302 AND MUNCIE 4SP THAT HE QUICKLY SOLD ON E-BAY FOR 5K, BUT THE CAR WAS A DRIVER WHEN PURCHASED.
NOW LETS TALK ABOUT THE PRESENT OWNERS AND RESTORERS OF THIS STUNNING CAR. PAUL AND HIS WIFE HAVE RESTORED SEVERAL CARS AND THE LATEST IS THIS BEAUTIFUL 1966 CORVETTE CONVERTIBLE. THEY HAVE WORKED NIGHTS AND WEEKENDS FOR THE LAST 11 YEARS TO RESTORE THIS CORVETTE TO THE HIGHEST STANDARDS IN WORKMANSHIP AND PARTS. THEY ARE LONG TIME CORVETTE ENTHUSIASTS AND HAVE OWNED MANY VETTES OVER THE YEARS. THIS IS A BODY OFF FRAME RESTORATION. ALL RESTORATION WORK WAS DONE IN THEIR FULLY EQUIPPED SHOP AT THEIR RESIDENCE. THE ENTIRE PROCESS HAS BEEN RECORDED IN PICTURES AND VIDEO AND WILL BE AVAILABLE UPON REQUEST. ALL RECEIPTS HAVE BEEN KEPT TOTALING $66,000 IN PARTS AND WILL BE PROVIDED ALSO.
NOW LETS GET DOWN TO THE MEAT OF THIS IMPRESSIVE BUILD. THE 496CI V-8 COMES FROM CAROLINA MACHINE ENGINE AND HAS A DYNO SHEET SHOWING A CONSISTENT 555 HP. ALUMINUM HEADS GULP IN AIR AND FUEL THRU A 850 CFM MIGHTY DEMON CARB FED BY A HOLLY HIGH VOLUME MANUAL FUEL PUMP AND POLISHED EDLEBROCK AIR GAP INTAKE. SPARK IS PROVIDED BY A MSD BILLET PRO DISTRIBUTOR AND MSD COIL THAT FIRES DOWN A SET OF ACCELL 8.5 25 OHM PRO RACE WIRES AND AUTOLITE PLUGS . THE EXHAUST IS ALL POLISHED STAINLESS STEEL FROM THE HEADERS TO THE SIDE PIPES MADE BY STAINLESS WORKS AND SOUNDS AWESOME. ALL THAT POWER IS FED TO A 5 SPEED TREMEC TRANSMISSION AND MCLEOD CLUTCH BOLTED TO THE 496 WITH A LAKEWOOD BELL HOUSING RATED TO 900 HP AND A HURST SHORT THROW SHIFTER. THE 3:55 RATIO REAR END, HALF SHAFTS AND U JOINTS ARE BB FACTORY STOCK EXCEPT FOR THE V,B&P OFFSET TRAILING ARMS AND TORQUE BAR. THIS PACKAGE IS WELL UP TO THE JOB OF TRANSFERRING THE POWER TO THE GROUND. WHEN YOU BUILD THIS MUCH POWER YOU HAVE TO MAKE SURE THAT YOU CAN COOL EVERYTHING AND THIS IS DONE WITH A GRIFFIN ALUMINUM 4 CORE RADIATOR AND HUGE 19 INCH HIGH VOLUME THERMOSTATICALLY CONTROLLED FAN. BILLET SPECIALTIES PROVIDED THE SERPENTINE BELT AND PULLEY SET UP THAT DRIVES THE VINTAGE AIR AC COMPRESSOR, HI FLOW WATER PUMP, POWER STEERING PUMP AND HIGH AMP POLISHED 140 AMP ALTERNATOR. NOW WE NEED TO STOP THIS BEAST WITH 4 WHEEL DRILLED AND SLOTTED ROTORS WITH STAINLESS SLEEVED 4 PISTON CALIPERS CLAMPING EBC PADS. ALL HARD BRAKE LINES ARE STAINLESS AND FRAME TO CALIPER LINES ARE BRAIDED STAINLESS. THE MASTER CYLINDER IS BILLET ALUMINUM MADE BY WILWOOD AND POWER IS PROVIDED BY A HYDRA BOOST SETUP. NOW THAT WE CAN GO FAST AND STOP FAST THE VETTE NEEDS TO RIDE GREAT SO QA1 COILOVER SHOCKS AND SPRINGS CONTROL THE COMPLETELY REBUILT STOCK SUSPENSION TO PROVIDE A FIRM BUT NOT STIFF ADJUSTABLE RIDE. ALL THESE NEW PARTS RIDE ON TORQUE THRUST II POLISHED WHEELS WRAPPED WITH 225/45/17 FRONT AND 275/40/17 SUMITOMO TIRES.
ALL THESE EXPENSIVE PARTS ARE WRAPPED IN A 20K PAINT AND FLAIR PACKAGE THAT IS JUST STUNNING. THE 2000 CORVETTE TORCH RED PAINT IS DUPONT SINGLE STAGE COLOR SANDED AND POLISHED TO AN ALMOST PERFECT FINISH. THE 2' FLAIRS ARE PROFESSIONALLY BONDED AND SEAMLESS. THE BODY WAS REMOVED FROM THE FRAME AND STRIPPED SO IT COULD BE REWORKED CORRECTLY. THE FRAME WAS STRIPPED AND PAINTED AND THEN REASSEMBLED WITH ALL NEW BUSHINGS AND HARDWARE. THE NEW OWNER WILL ALWAYS BE THE CENTER OF ATTENTION WHEN DRIVING THIS BEAUTIFUL CORVETTE. ALL BUMPERS, TRIM AND EXTERIOR HARDWARE IS POLISHED AND NEW.
NOW WE GET TO THE MOST BEAUTIFUL CAMEL INTERIOR THAT I HAVE EVER SEEN IN A VINTAGE CORVETTE. FROM THE NEW LEATHER SEATS, DASH PAD, DOOR PANELS, DOOR AND TOP SEALS, HARDWARE AND CARPET TO THE NEW CONVERTIBLE TOP ALL WAS PROVIDED BY AL KNOCH INTERIORS. ALL GAUGES, AC/HEAT CONTROLS, KNOBS, STEERING WHEEL, PEDALS AND ALL INTERIOR HARDWARE IS NEW. LIZARD SKIN SOUND AND HEAT BARRIER WAS SPRAYED IN THE CABIN SO CAR IS FREE OF RATTLES AND EXCESSIVE HEAT. THE NEW OWNER WILL ENJOY THIS VETTE WITH THE TOP UP OR DOWN FOR MANY YEARS TO COME.
THIS 1966 CORVETTE CONVERTIBLE RESTORATION IS ONE OF THE NICEST BUILDS IN THE COUNTRY THAT NOBODY KNOWS ABOUT UNTIL NOW. PAUL AND HIS WIFE HAVE DEDICATED THE LAST 11 YEARS TO MAKING THIS VETTE THE VERY BEST IN BUILD QUALITY, PARTS AND MATERIALS THAT COULD BE HAD. THEY ARE READY TO MOVE ON TO THEIR NEXT RESTORATION OF A 1971 CORVETTE CONVERTIBLE AND WILL BE USING THE SALE OF THIS ONE TO FUND THE PROJECT. I CAN NOT STRESS ENOUGH THAT THIS IS A LIKE NEW CAR AND HAS LESS THAN 1000 MILES ON IT OVER THE TIME OF THE 11 YEAR RESTORATION. MOST OF THOSE MILES ARE AROUND TOWN AND GOING TO A FEW SHOWS LOCALLY.
WE ARE SELLING THIS STUNNING RED CORVETTE AT "NO RESERVE" AND WILL BE SOLD TO THE HIGHEST BIDDER WHEN THE 10 DAYS ARE UP. WE ARE CONFIDENT THAT THE CAR WILL BRING A FAIR AND HONEST PRICE VERY CLOSE TO THE MARKET VALUE IF WE LET THE MARKET DETERMINE THAT VALUE. WE COULD TAKE IT TO A TOP LINE AUCTION AND PAY SELLERS AND BUYERS FEES BUT WE THINK THAT EBAY WILL STEP UP AND DELIVER A FAIR PRICE WITHOUT THE HUGE FEES.
THIS IS A NO RESERVE AUCTION AND THE VETTE WILL BE SOLD TO THE HIGHEST BIDDER AFTER THE LAST SECOND TICKS OFF. THE VETTE IS SOLD AS IS WHERE IS WITH NO WARRANTY WRITTEN OR IMPLIED BY THE SELLER/OWNER OR MYSELF. HOWEVER, IF UPON DELIVERY OF THE VEHICLE BY MYSELF OR WHEN THE NEW OWNER COMES TO PICK UP THE VEHICLE THE NEW OWNER FEELS LIKE WE HAVE DECEIVED, OMITTED OR LIED IN THIS DESCRIPTION IN ANY WAY THE DEPOSIT WILL BE RETURNED MINUS FUEL COST (IF I DELIVER THE CAR) AND WE WILL GO OUR SEPARATE WAYS STILL FRIENDS. ALABAMA DOES NOT ISSUE TITLES TO VEHICLES OLDER THAN 1976 SO THE BUYER WILL RECEIVE THE CURRENT REGISTRATION AND A BILL OF SALE UPON DELIVERY. I CAN DELIVER THE VETTE ANYWHERE IN THE LOWER 48 STATES FOR $1.00 PER LOADED MILE ON A OPEN TILT BED CAR TRAILER OR $2.00 PER LOADED MILE IN AN ENCLOSED TRAILER. I AM A LICENSED, BONDED AND INSURED USED CAR DEALER HERE IN ALABAMA AND HAVE HAULED COLLECTOR VEHICLES ALL OVER THE COUNTRY FOR THE PAST 16 YEARS.
PLEASE FEEL FREE TO CHECK MY PERFECT FEEDBACK AND SOME OF THE OTHER VEHICLES THAT I HAVE BOUGHT AND SOLD OVER THE YEARS ON EBAY. DON'T HESITATE TO ASK ANY AND ALL QUESTIONS OR REQUEST ADDITIONAL PICTURES AND VIDEO, OR COME SEE THE VEHICLE IN PERSON AND SEE FOR YOURSELF THE QUALITY OF THIS BUILD. THIS IS A SHOW QUALITY VEHICLE THAT WILL ONLY APPRECIATE IN VALUE IN THE FUTURE.
