Chevrolets second-generation Corvette was introduced for the 1963 model year. It was dubbed the Sting Ray, for its distinctive shark-like styling, apart from its V8 engine, and it was completely different from the Corvettes that preceded it. It is both shorter and lighter than the first generation Corvette, as it boasted a new ladder-type chassis frame and was the first American production car ever fitted with an independent rear suspension. Chevrolet also offered both coupe and convertible body styles for the Corvette with this all-new car, giving enthusiasts the choice between the security and comfort of a coupe or the open-air thrill of a convertible.
Like previous years, the 1966 Corvette remained largely unchanged, save for a few interior and exterior details. The seat pattern changed slightly to decrease wear, backup lights were now standard and integrated into the rear bumper, and Holly carburetors were offered as standard on all engine options. This would also be Chevrolets most successful year with the second-generation Corvette, as over 27,720 were produced, with 17,762 being convertibles. The Corvette Convertible offered here was built in April 1966 and fitted with the base 327-cubic inch, 300-brake horsepower V-8 engine, which was mated to a four-speed manual transmission.
It was finished in a Mosport Green color that would only be available for 1966 over a matching Green vinyl interior and tan convertible top, and it was very well optioned from the factory, as it was equipped with a hardtop, aluminum knock-off wheels, complete ignition shielding, a teakwood steering wheel, power windows, a power antenna, and a factory-tinted windshield. Following a full restoration to its original configuration, this Corvette has seen numerous awards at many Corvette events around the country. It is a beautiful restoration that has earned the prestigious Triple Crown award for achieving a Blue Ribbon at Bloomington Gold, Top Flight certification by the NCRS, and the Gold Spinner Award at Chevy Vettefest . Once such a Corvette has received these highest awards, there is no doubt to its authenticity and the proper numbers in the engine and drivetrain. The restoration has held up very well, with the Corvette remaining in immaculate condition and ready for more shows or the open road. This Corvette Convertible comes with the following documentation: Original Window Sticker, Triple Crown Award Plaque, Original Corvette Owners Card and Patch, Gold Certificate from the National Corvette Certification Board, Top Flight Award Ribbon, Original Corvette Brochure. This Corvette is in truly remarkable condition, and it has excelled at the countrys most rigorous and prestigious Corvette concours events. It would definitely please the most discerning of collectors.
