Let's start with the known 2-owner history, his Corvette Stingray was purchased new by an American Falls, daho resident from the then Intermountain Chevrolet in Pocatello Idaho. The owner stored the Corvette when he was drafted into the Army. When he completed his service, e purchased a newer car, nd asked his father to list and sell the Corvette thru the Pocatello based Idaho State Journal classifieds. The current owner of 40 plus years purchased this Corvette in June of 1974. At the time the car was "original" Rally Red and as equipped from the factory. In 1978 he repainted the car a 1966 Corvette factory yellow and was professionally returned to its original colors about 15 years ago along with a complete mechanical once over of the "Original Power-Train", ll performed by a well known Idaho Corvette professional's.

The above/below is a recap of the Corvette's history (to the best of our knowledge):

  • Engine and transmission rebuild about 15 years and 4,000 miles ago. Cylinders were bored out .0030 and new pistons and rings installed. Engine and flywheel were balanced, ew cam shaft installed, ll bearings replaced. Cylinder heads were reworked to accept the use of unleaded fuel. The engine runs great with no pinging with the use of premium unleaded fuel (15% ethanol fuel also). Push rods, ocker arms, alves, prings and lifters were all replaced. New distributor shaft gear, nd tachometer drive gear and cable were replaced. The original points and condenser were replaced with a solid state unit that fits under the distributor and retains the stock appearance without the annoyance of setting points and dwell.
  • In the hot summer months the car always had a tendency to run warm, specially when driving at slow speeds around town, n parades, r at idle. I found this to be a common problem with the early big block engines. I replaced the original water pump with a high capacity unit and the original radiator with an oversized aluminum radiator, nd dual electric fans. The car runs cool at the hottest summer temperatures at any speed. The original radiator, hroud and fan are included.
  • New stock factory original side pipes were installed, nd panels below rear bumpers were replaced with units without exhaust openings. Work by Corvette and Performance Auto (Steve Dobbins).
  • Rear leaf spring replaced, nd front coil springs reset to stock specs. New shocks installed.
  • Front and rear sway bars replaced, nd all rubber parts replaced with neoprene.
  • Front and rear aluminum disk brake piston & sleeves replaced with stainless to prevent leaking.
  • Installed after-market knock-off wheels. They are "actually" knock-offs. Dunlop radials.
  • Power brakes and power steering installed by Corvette and Performance Auto (Steve Dobbins), oise. All parts stock. This has made a tremendous difference in the handling, raking and parking of the car.
  • Body work and paint by Dale Hopkins of “Body and Paint Center”, oise Idaho. The Body was media blasted to bare fiberglass to check for cracks or separation of body parts (and to rid the car of all yellow and original red paint). There were no body joint cracks or separations. Body panels were blocked smooth, ome minor repair around wheel wells and under front bumpers, nd car painted Rally Red. Paint color was matched to the original 1966 shade of red.
  • All rubber in doors windows, ood, eck and top, eplaced.
  • Front and rear bumpers re-chromed by Salt Lake Chrome. All body hardware replaced.
  • All glass replaced. Front stainless windshield frame reworked and polished.
  • New black soft top installed. I have the original hard top, ut did not have it painted, s it would be stored, nd was concerned about damage. The hard top has never been installed by me.
  • The seats have light patina, ut are in good shape. I replaced the carpets.
  • Gauges were freshened and are like new. The clock was replaced with an electronic look-alike.
  • Head light door motors were rebuilt, nd relays replaced.
  • The car is Radio delete, owever years ago I installed a radio and speakers behind the seats. I installed an antenna. When we did body and paint, neglected to tell Dale Hopkins to fill the hole for the after-market antenna… so the antenna still exists to fill the hole.
  • I installed an after-market luggage rack, s there is no storage when the top is down.
