This is why so many admire the second-gen Corvettes, but even among those this ’66 L36 427 Corvette is extra special.
Powering this stunner is a e 427ci L36 V8 is equipped with a four-barrel carburetor and was rated at 390 horsepower new. Matched up to it is a four-speed manual, so as you can imagine this is one fun car to take around town. What’s more, under the hood everything is incredibly clean, with red valve covers and chrome air cleaner for an impressive presentation.
Finished in Silver Pearl with black stripes, this C2 Corvette was originally an Ermine White (972) car. It also has a 1967 stinger hood, instead of the original 1966 hood, which is still included with the car if you want to change it back. It rolls around with chromed bumpers, pop up headlights, driver’s side mirror, and side exhaust pipes. It rolls on 15-inch Rally wheels, wrapped in 205/75 Coker Classic red wall tires. It gets stopping power from power four-wheel disc brakes. Both the suspension and the brakes were overhauled.
