1966 Chevrolet Corvette 496 Big Block V8 Yellow Black Excellent


Description


Representing the second to last year of the second-generation Corvette ("C2"), the 1966 Corvette benefited from ‘65's notable upgrades such as four-wheel disc brakes and a choice of small block and big block power. The 1965 big block option consisted of a single 396 cubic-inch heavy hitter, while 1966 saw that mill replaced by a couple of 427 options. Either way, a “power bulge” hood indicated you had a big-block brute under the hood and a force to be reckoned with whether on the street or track.

Equipped with a 427, though there is no documentation to support that. In any event, this pavement pounder now sports a World Products Merlin 496 big block cranking out in excess of 500 horsepower. A rather aggressive soundtrack is provided by ceramic coated headers running out to factory-style side exhausts. All that muscle runs to the Positraction rear end via a five-speed Tremec gearbox that benefits from a recent clutch and throwout bearing replacement. No power steering or power brakes on this serious driver's car.

Beautiful Sunfire Yellow paint highlights this sleek Corvette coupe's impressively straight body while a set of 18-inch US Mag wheels fitted with Falken high-performance tires make for a great stance and plenty of grip. Underneath you'll note rot-free floors and frame that are so clean you could eat lasagna off them. Inside, the black vinyl seats, door panels carpet and headliner are all in excellent condition and the well-maintained Corvette boasts new wiring and a restored dash.
