1966 Chevrolet Corvette Convertible milano maroon
You are bidding on a highly desirable, very collectible 1966 Corvette Sting Ray Convertible. 427 Turbo-Jet 390 HP with 4 speed. This mid-sixties Corvette retains its numbers matching, factory original, high-performance 427/390 hp engine. Adding to this convertibles desirability is the numbers matching 4-speed manual transmission complete with factory shifter still in place, the numbers matching 3:55 positraction differential, Knock Off Cast Aluminum Wheels, Gold Line Tires, Soft Ray tinted glass, and Car cover. As best as we can tell the drive train has never been removed from the car. Original color of Milano Maroon (has been repainted) with Black Vinyl interior. Matching hardtop plus soft-top. This car was produced on January 14, 1966 in St. Louis.
66 Sting Rays are one of the most sought after mid-sixties Corvettes because of ChevroletÃ¢â‚¬™s performance emphasis. The engineers had figured out how to put a strong, high-horsepower motor in a lightweight car and make it go fast. After reviewers gave the '64 and earlier models seriously bad marks for "inadequate braking," Chevrolet stepped up in '65 with factory 4-wheel, 11-inch disc brakes. Suddenly, the Corvette had the braking capacity to harness the performance packed in under the hood. This car retains this highly desirable factory 4-wheel disc brake system. We just replaced the original front calipers (had to drill out original rivets), rotors, and pads. The factory color, as designated from the Trim Tag info included below, is Milano Maroon (great color). This car was also factory equipped with tinted glass, power antenna (works great!) and manual windows (no power window motors to rebuild or maintain!!).
VIN: 194676S109287 Trim Tag: E14, Style = 66-467, Body = A-2898, Trim = Std, Paint = 988 (Milano Maroon). Mechanically, this car is in very good condition and has only been driven sparingly in the last 39 years and seems to have benefited from just a handful of loving owners all its life. The engine starts easy, runs strong and seems to function just as it should. The car shifts, turns and stops well. The doors open and close well. The windows roll up and down smoothly. The heater works well and the in-dash clock even functions (although I'm not sure they ever kept time!). The car also has brand new gold line tires with knockoff wheels that complete a very impressive classic Corvette look. Cosmetically, this '66 Convertible is in very good and well above average "driver quality" condition. Its overall condition is amazing considering it is a never-restored, 39 year old car. The interior is very clean and presentable, with no apparent rips or tears. The glass is good with no cracks or bad chips. The trim and bumpers are all there and are straight and in above average condition. It is an impressive example of a highly collectible early Corvette that anyone would be proud to own and drive.

From WikipediaChevrolet, also known as Chevy, is an American brand of vehicle produced by General Motors (GM). Founded by Louis Chevrolet and ousted GM founder William C. Durant on November 3, 1911, General Motors acquired Chevrolet in 1918. Chevrolet was positioned by Alfred Sloan to sell a lineup of mainstream vehicles to directly compete against Henry Ford's Model T in the 1920s, with "Chevrolet" or "Chevy" being at times synonymous with GM.
