Description
Lot #1233 - More than four decades after its introduction, the second generation C2 Corvette remains one of the most startling, engrossing and most delightful automotive designs of all time. The mid-year Corvettes aren't so much beautiful as they were provocative and it was Harley Earl's successor as GM Design Chief, Bill Mitchell, along with assistant Larry Shinoda, who was doing most of the provoking. It was the marriage of the Mitchell/Shinoda body design with the new Duntov chassis that resulted in the C2 Corvette. 1966 saw the introduction of the thundering 427cid engines and in main street America, the big block Corvette was the "King of the Road". Brutally fast with nimble handling and good brakes, it earned the title "America's Sports Car". And, if you wanted the fastest street Corvette, you checked the option for one of the thundering 427cid V8's. This particular car has received a previous body-off restoration to original appearance and specs. The original engine is long gone and replaced by a fresh strong replacement big block monster providing close to 500hp. It is also complimented with a 4-speed transmission, 3.70 posi-traction rear end, power steering, 4-wheel disc brakes, side-mount exhaust system, AM/FM radio, knock-off aluminum wheels with radial tires and much more. This high-quality restoration also included the paint which was redone in the original Code "984" Sunfire Yellow with a black '67 Stinger hood that gives it a very sharp and distinguished look. It has been recently refreshed to the highest standards and is ready to show and drive anywhere. It "goes" as well as it "shows" and will not disappoint the most demanding Corvette fan.
