Description:

Imagine that you could get an L36 427/390 in your Corvette for just $181.20 today. With that in mind, this 1966 Corvette convertible was probably a staggering bargain when it was new. Today, it''s an investment-grade piece of history with a matching-numbers engine, sidepipes, and a top-flight restoration. Worth it? You''d better believe it. The Corvette neatly fits into a number of categories: with the 427, it''s a seriously fast piece of hardware, but the code 988 Milano Maroon gives it an upscale demeanor that puts it right at home with some pretty sophisticated cars from Europe. The restoration was done with that in mind, giving it exacting fit and finish that makes this car look extraordinary even at a glance. The fiberglass is straight, with no cracks or amateurishly sanded details, and no cut corners anywhere in the work. Two-stage urethane gives that Milano Maroon paint a depth and gloss that other Corvettes will envy, with reflections that look a mile deep. All the chrome has been restored to show standards, too, with correct emblems fitted all around and, of course, those thundering sidepipes that practically define the car. The trim tag calls the black interior STD, as in standard but it''s anything but. Elegant and inviting, the Stingray interior is one of GM''s best efforts, combining form and function with a big dose of style that suits the Corvette perfectly. On this car, of course, everything is new, including the accurate seat covers, door panels, and carpets that show the correct weave. Big, round gauges are all fully operational and easily visible through the woodgrained steering wheel, and the unique vertical AM radio works like it should. Grab the big chrome shifter and slip it into gear and you''ll feel all 390 horses snap to attention under the hood-there''s nothing else like it in all of the automotive kingdom. This roadster also includes a folding black convertible top that stows neatly under the rear deck, and seals up quite well. There''s definitely something magic about a 427 in a Corvette. That''s what legends are all about. This one is the numbers-matching L36, and thanks to hydraulic lifters, it''s a remarkably docile beast when you''re tooling around town, but snarls and roars through the side pipes when you''re gunning it. It''s dressed for show, with Chevy Orange on the block and valve covers, a chrome air cleaner, and a correct shielded ignition system. Blue stripe hoses with proper tower hose clamps, reproduction decals, and correct original-style hardware gives this car an edge on the show field. It''s remarkable how much room the side pipes free up underneath, but it gives you a great view of the nearly flawless floors. The suspension has been fully rebuilt, the disc brakes at all four corners still grab like they should, and it has a great look with gold-stripe tires on steel wheels with spinner hubcaps. If there''s one car that defines investment grade it''s this mid-year 427 Corvette roadster. Call today! This vehicle is located in our Atlanta showroom.
