“Son of a Gun — just what the Corvette needed, more power! Chevrolet has replaced last year's top-of-the-line 396-cu. in. engine with a 427. According to the factory, horsepower remains unchanged at 425, but torque has gone up from 415 lbs/ft. at 4000, to 465 at the same rpm. We asked one Chevrolet man why the increase in displacement and torque didn't have a parallel increase in horsepower. "This was done primarily to save weight," he said, with a twinkling eye; "you must remember that cast-iron is very heavy, and by removing thirty cubic inches of it, we have made a significant reduction in weight."” – From the 1965 Issue of Car and Driver Magazine

GR Auto Gallery is pleased to present this wonderful 1966 Chevrolet Corvette Coupe which has been brought down to its frame when restored and rebuilt into exactly what you would hope to see done to such an iconic car. With what's believed to be the original block to the engine, the rest has seen its upgrades from the head to the carburetor ad has been matched to a newer Muncie 4-speed transmission to keep true to the era. We are told there is also a 3.73 rear end installed, rack and pinion steering and hosts front and rear power disc brakes to keep the drive comfortable and smooth. The interior hosts a very similar color but with all new leather and acoustics completed to it, a Retro-Sound system with Bluetooth capability looks almost like a stock stereo but with a digital readout and hides a kill switch below the dash for when you go to store it or ensure it won't go far without you! With many other great parts used but without disrupting the instant nostalgia, this is a great find for those in love with the C-2 era Corvette but prefer one that has the work completed to make it a real enjoyable ride! Call us soon to find out more about this wonderful example!
