1966 Corvette Convertible - This little red corvette is an awesome example of vintage looks with modern power and comfort! Originally a big block, this stingray now boasts a newer and more powerful engine with nicely added updates throughout. First glance under the hood may look stock and correct but it actually boasts an aluminum 540ci Merlin performance engine that has been fully detailed and appointed to look like the original 427 jewel which previously sat in it's place. Correct style Winters-snowflake intake, valve covers, air cleaner, exhaust manifolds, chrome shrouds, distributor cover, etc. all look spot-on and era-correct. To transfer all this power to the ground is a Tremec TKO-5spd manual transmission with Centerforce clutch, power steering and upgraded 4-wheel power disc brakes to help it stop on a dime. Exterior is finished in the iconic Rally Red with correct big block hood, correct side pipes and excellent chrome bumpers. Body and undercarraige is very nice with all bonding strips in place and nice gaps. Doors close right and tight while headlights and convertible top work and fit great. Factory looks can also be found inside the car with it's black vinyl seats, correct dash with all working instruments, correct AM/FM radio (updated internals for better reception) a teak steering wheel and correct A/C controls and vents which blow cold (R-134 system). New bolt-on style Knockoff wheels with white line radials have been added to finish off that vintage Corvette look. This car is proven reliable and is very STOUT. She runs as good as she looks and really moves, while sounding and looking like an original big block mid-year convertible. An awesome piece for any collector or someone looking for an alternative to the six-figure NCRS show queen version that are out there today.
