1966 Chevrolet Corvette Convertible
April 23, 2016
When you see a 1966 Chevrolet Corvette convertible like this one, there are a lot of important questions that first come to mind. Is this a great color combo? It appears that the paint was refinished several years ago, but it retains a level of gloss and shine that’s far superior to what the factory offered. You can easily tell from the pictures that the fiberglass is in great condition, and it lines up straight.
Of course, the iconic C2’s premium appearance would not be complete without the knock-off wheels and side pipes. Inside, a blue interior is exactly what you want to see. After all the pristine color is a lot of fun to show off. The C2 interior is always a favorite with the now-iconic dual cowl design that’s as much a part of the motoring experience as the hum of the engine or rumble of the exhaust.
All the gauges show crisp markings that let you keep an eye on the engine’s status. A factory AM/FM radio lives in the center stack, showing off its unique vertical orientation, and maybe it all works.
Possibly an original, numbers-matching 327 cubic inch V8 under the hood, offering the kind of unobtrusive performance that made the small block Chevy world famous. With smooth torque, it’s the ideal companion for cruising.
Corvettes are always in demand. This one just also happens to have the right factory correct colors in a well-maintained package. So beyond just valuable features, this will always have appeal as a beautiful blue American icon.
