LMC is proud to offer for sale this 1966 Chevrolet Corvette Coupe 427/390hp
Chevrolet Corvette, C2 for 2nd Generation and also known as the Corvette Stingray, is the American sports car legend produced for the 1963 to 1967 model years. The radical exterior styling of this Corvette generation was very purposeful, with peaked fenders, a long nose, and a short, bobbed tail. Chevrolet designers actually bragged about the styling at the time, saying: 'looks most stylists would be too timid to even suggest'. Originally offered with an array of 327ci V8s, it was the 1966 introduction of the 427ci V8 that would truly earn the 'Vette its 'King of the Road' status. With the improvements bestowed on its brakes and suspension since the C2's introduction, it proved to be a potent combination of power and agility; something that Zora himself said he would be proud to take and show off in Europe.
This very rare and unique 1966 Corvette Coupe was produced on February 17th, 1966 and originally delivered to O’Rielly Motor Company in Tucson, Arizona as confirmed by the NCRS shipping data report. It was ordered in the ultra-rare and desirable code 900 Tuxedo Black Paint of which only 4% of cars that year were produced. Add a code 407 Red vinyl interior you have one of only a handful built in the most desirable color combination. The interior itself is largely original and in outstanding condition. It is powered by the matching number 427/390 horsepower engine and backed by the numbers matching M20 4-speed transmission. Loaded with options including the very desirable air conditioning, side exit exhaust, power windows,headrests, telescopic steering column, AM/FM radio, date coded Knock-Off wheels and Goldline tires.
This corvette today remains largely unrestored having had only one repaint during it’s lifetime. Under the hood is still largely original with only service items being replaced over time. The undercarriage is largely original as well with chalk marks still present, spring tags, driveshaft markings, tape under body shims, overspray on bellhousing, bare fiberglass floors and much more. The car even retains its date-coded aluminum knock off wheels. It also runs and drives extremely well having never been taken apart or tampered with. This car would be the perfect addition to any Corvette purist’s collection as they would appreciate the originality of this Big Block Corvette.
The documentation supporting the originality of this Corvette includes the NCRS shipping data report, Owner's Manual and Protection Plan Booklet complete with the Protect-O-Plate. As well it comes complete with old registrations, owner history, copy of old titles and even a period photograph with the original owner.
Being a factory Tuxedo Black with Red interior and with its options list, makes this 1966 Corvette one of the most desirable combinations ever built! It is also very unusual to find a C2 Corvette in this original condition having never restored and documented Corvette like the day it was delivered to its first owner. This Corvette is perfect for the savant who appreciates a well preserved, highly optioned and fully documented Big Block Corvette.
