1966 Chevrolet Corvette $82,000


From Blackdog Performance Cars
1966 Chevrolet Corvette $82,000

 

For sale at Blackdog Performance Cars is very rare, air conditioning equipped, 1966 Chevrolet Corvette. This C2 Corvette is powered by the original, numbers matching L79 327 CID V8 engine that produces 350 horsepower and is backed by the original 4-speed manual transmission. The original rear end has an AM code, which means it is a 3.36 gear ratio with posi-traction. This combination gives you the hassle-free driving of a small block in stop and go traffic, plenty of power when you need it, and of course the ultimate driving sensation of shifting gears in an American icon.

The body and paint are in good condition, it appears to be a no-hit car and a frame off restored car, although we do not have much history in regards to when the restoration took place. The black vinyl interior is in excellent condition, no rips, tears, or wear is seen in the upholstery, and the dash and gauges look almost new. The black carpet is in great shape, it is free from typical sun fading and has no tears. Other notable interior options include power windows and an AM/FM radio.

With the L79 327/350HP V8 and air conditioning this is a classic C2 Corvette that can be driven in any environment. Be it on the highway, in the city, summer or winter, this little Corvette has you comfortably covered. She is ready for a new forever home and owner to love and adore her for years to come.

Extended Description

For sale at Blackdog Performance Cars is very rare, air conditioning equipped, 1966 Chevrolet Corvette. Yes, you read that correct, this Ermine White over black vinyl 66’ C2 is one of just 2,138 1966 Corvette Coupes equipped with factory air conditioning. This C2 Corvette is powered by the original, numbers matching L79 327 CID V8 engine that produces 350 horsepower and is backed by the original 4-speed manual transmission. The L79 also features the A.I.R. or air injection reactor, which was mandatory for all California bound cars. The good news is it does not affect power or internals in any way as it only takes one HP to drive the pump. The rear end is dated 7/12/66, which is just days before the car’s build date of 7/21/66, making this the original rear end as well. The AM code on the rear end means it is a 3.36 gear ratio with posi-traction. This combination gives you the hassle-free driving of a small block in stop and go traffic, plenty of power when you need it, and of course the ultimate driving sensation of shifting gears in an American icon.

The body and paint are in good condition, it appears to be a no-hit car and a frame off restored car, although we do not have much history in regards to when the restoration took place. The black vinyl interior is in excellent condition, no rips, tears, or wear is seen in the upholstery, and the dash and gauges look almost new. The black carpet is in great shape, it is free from typical sun fading and has no tears. Notable interior options include power windows and an AM/FM radio, which were $57.95 and $199.10 options respectively. That’s a lot of money for a little more convenience in 1966! Other notable options include: side exhaust, knock off wheels with goldline tires, a Declo AM/FM radio, and power antenna. 

The second-generation Corvette, or C2, had a relatively short production run from 1963 to 1967, which is why it earned the nickname, ‘Mid-Year’ Corvette. When the C2 debuted, it was like nothing anyone had ever seen before, the styling was other worldly. Amazingly, the design team was able to incorporate a new front end, mid-section, and interior to blend with the tail end of a late C1 design. If you look closely at a 61’ or 62’ Corvette you will notice the striking resemblance. The new chassis for 63’ was way ahead of its time, the main goal was to lower the center of gravity for the car, which in turn would lower height of all other areas, cowl height, engine height, etc. The new chassis for the C2 actually spanned all the way up to the end of the C3 Corvette run in 1982. Chevrolet definitely got their money’s worth out of that one!

With the L79 327/350HP V8 and air conditioning this is a classic C2 Corvette that can be driven in any environment. Be it on the highway, in the city, summer or winter, this little Corvette has you comfortably covered. She is ready for a new forever home and owner to love and adore her for years to come.
