1966 Corvette 427/425 For Sale
Description 1966 Corvette 427/425
1966 Corvette 427/425. Nassau blue exterior, bright blue interior.Four speed close ratio, Hurst shifter, side exhaust, AM/FM radio, power antenna, teak steering wheel, whitewall radial tires on stock wheels.
I have owned the car for about 14 years, accumulating about 5K miles in that time. It came from a Corvette speacialist dealer in Arizona; California before that.
The rear half of the car (underside) is restored, everything as new and correct. The front half of the car is as I received it, except for a new radiator core. Also, the entire brake system is now replaced/restored; new booster, rotors, restored calipers, parking brake, all S.S. lines, etc.
A previous owner applied the paint, re-chromed bumpers, etc. The color is accurate and well done. A couple paint chips need fixing (see in pictures). Overall the body is excellent. Areas that are often cracked from age on Corvettes, look good on this car. I have looked all around from underneath and have not found any evidence of old accident damage.
The frame also looked very good in the back during the refurbishment. For example, the body mounts that are often rusty are very solid on this car.
The interior shows wear but looks good overall. Seat covers excellent. Carpet fair at best. Convertible top good condition. The California owner told me it was originally a radio delete car, but sorry, he installed a radio. I followed suit with the power antenna and OEM dash control switch. Clock works, but after 14 years I now must tap on the clock once after it sits for weeks.
Runs and shifts beautifully. The engine block is dated 1968 and is a CExxxxxxx (Chev Engingg) warranty replacement block. Runs on pump gas. Tube headers, loud exhaust. Sounds fantastic. Just sitting in this car and hearing it start is a thrill and raises a huge smile.
Added 6/25/2016: I am told now that the NCRS does not deduct points for "CE" engine blocks - CE meaning "counter exchange" - these being warranty exchange engine blocks within the 3yr/36,000 mi warranty.
