Gateway Classic Cars of Houston is proud to offer this pampered and meticulously maintained 1966 Chevrolet Corvette Convertible from the collection of a private Texas collector. This example is pristine with its correct Rally Red paint scheme (1 of only 3,336 red vehicles), white soft top, black leather interior and original owner’s manual in the glove box. Importantly, all numbers match and are original to the car (e.g., engine, chassis, frame, glass, etc.).
Powering this beauty down the road is its original L-79 327 CiD V8 that puts out 350HP & is paired to the original 4-speed manual transmission that shifts smoothly throughout all the gears along with the posi rear end. Both the engine & trans have been professionally rebuilt with less than 19k miles on them. The interior is in excellent condition as well making this car a real pleasure to drive. All options on this car work as they should and overall the car shows extremely well. This would make a very nice addition to any enthusiast or collector.
This Corvette was NCRS Flight Judged at the rigorous 2016 NCRS Lone Star Regional (October 2016, Frisco, Texas) and received 81. Points (against strict 1966 factory originality) overall from the 4 separate NCRS Judging Teams. Deductions were for being “over restored” (i.e., the paint is far too nice for 1966) or containing options added after dealership sale (e.g., AC, side-mount exhaust, leather interior). In October 2015, this Corvette also won “Best in Class” at the Sam Houston Corvette Club Show (The Woodlands, Texas).
The vehicle was professionally restored in 2012 and has casual road time since then. A photograph book depicting the restoration is included with the sale as are extensive receipts from over the years. This car is equipped with options such as the side-mount exhaust, AC, teakwood steering wheel, knock-off wheels, power steering, & seat belts. This well-documented and striking Rally Red 1966 Corvette roadster is ready to drive and enjoy!
