Underneath that smooth hood is an equally smooth 327ci V8 engine. You’ll be proud to show it off, too, thanks to the chromed Air cleaner, valve covers, and other components in the engine compartment. That V8 is mated to a 4-speed manual transmission, which is what you really want with a classic like this, instead of an automatic. That alone will make this car desirable now and in the future, providing the pure experience enthusiasts crave.
While the C2 Sting Rays are known for their serious performance chops, they’re also famous for dramatic styling. This ’66 really delivers on that front with a Milano Maroon exterior that’s completely lust-worthy. The black top and black interior pair well with it, making the ‘Vette look sophisticated and yet aggressive at once. Details like the side exit exhaust on both sides, tall fenders, curvaceous hood, and large front fender vents really emphasize that this is a performance car not to be trifled with. What’s more, this car comes with all the factory badges and wheels, completing the vintage appearance flawlessly.
The same thing goes for the interior of this car: it keeps things wonderfully original. That includes the factory gauges, controls, steering wheel, and shifter. There is a Retro-Fit ETR radio for some modern convenience that doesn’t ruin the interior appearance. All the seat upholstery, carpeting, and even the top are free of damage, making for a smooth presentation.
The C2 or second generation of the Chevy Corvette launched in 1963 and lasted until 1967. That means this 1966 model benefitted from the design improvements made in the earlier years of the generation, resulting in a smooth and well-composed appearance. Any classic Corvette, especially one with a stick shift like this one, is a solid addition to your car collection.
