Description for Chevrolet Corvette 1966

"Son of a Gun - just what the Corvette needed more power! Chevrolet has replaced last year's top-of-the-line 396-cu. in. engine with a 427. According to the factory horsepower remains unchanged at 425 but torque has gone up from 415 lbs/ft. at 4000 to 465 at the same rpm. We asked one Chevrolet man why the increase in displacement and torque didn't have a parallel increase in horsepower. "This was done primarily to save weight" he said with a twinkling eye; "you must remember that cast-iron is ...very heavy and by removing thirty cubic inches of it we have made a significant reduction in weight."" â€" From the 1965 Issue of Car and Driver Magazine GR Auto Gallery is pleased to present this very clean and original example of the 1966 Chevrolet Corvette Convertible for your consideration. With many great documents to back the rich history of this wonderful piece of American automotive history we have the pleasure to offer the original Protect-O-Plate an original title copy the original invoice and even the first bill of sale made for this Corvette! Now coming to the market from the second owner this vehicle shows only 38 miles since the full restoration which was completed by Jeff Kennedy a Corvette expert. Featuring what is believed to be the original 427 4V V8 mated to the much preferred 4-speed manual transmission this vehicle has the added benefit of coming with both front and rear disc brakes as well. With fully functioning power windows the stock radio also working clean upholstery throughout and plenty of power to enjoy this vehicle is as nice inside as it is out and gives the owner a very nostalgic feel behind the wheel. From the outside the vehicle shows very stock as well with the standard knock-off wheels the trim and glass is all in good shape the black vinyl convertible top is standing tall and with its re-created factory color to the outside this is an excellent example of the rare convertible version of the C2.
