1966 Chevrolet Corvette 427 Convertible
Rare Silver on Silver Mid-Year
Offered here is a beautiful and rare Silver on Silver 1966 Chevrolet Corvette Convertible 427. Known as the Mid-Years, the Corvettes from 1963 to 1967 were completely redesigned with the birth of the Stingray body. They are the highest sought after classic Corvettes today, especially with a big block powerplant. In the past five years, the car has been gone through cosmetically and mechanically to make it one of the best Mid-Year convertibles on the market.
Our client purchased this Corvette in 1994 out of Macon, Georgia. He has owned it with pride for the past 24 years. The car is finished in factory original Silver Pearl (986) paint over the original Silver (426) interior trim, which is a rare combination. Only 2,967 Corvettes were painted in Silver Pearl and even less matched with a Silver interior. The fit and finish on the paint and interior remains in excellent shape, as does the white soft top.
This car is powered by a period correct 427ci/390hp V8 motor, which is accurately stamped as a counter-exchange block - very common for Mid-Year Corvettes. Power is transferred through the original 4-Speed Manual gearbox with rear-wheel drive. It has the original side exhaust, knock off wheels, power steering, power 4-wheel disc brakes, Hurst shifter, and original radio. It has upgraded with a new tinted windshield, new leather seating, new dash pad, new carpet, new doors panels, new quartz clock that works, new teak steering wheel, rebuilt headlight motors, and a new starter.
This is a fabulous example and a true collector Corvette. You won't find many this nice with this color combination. Be sure to check out all the photos and video on our main website: Garage Kept Motors. Call if interested or e-mail with any questions. Thank you for looking.
