1966 Chevrolet Corvette Red Convertible
Why This Car Is Special
America’s only true sports car, the Corvette, got subtle refinements in the body in 1966 and we have a high-quality restoration of a 1966 Corvette Roadster here at Skyway Classics that has what we believe to be a period correct engine with a modern Holly Sniper fuel injection system, and drivetrain too.
It also has a Vin number of #194676S100047 which means it was the 47th Corvette made that year!

This Corvette just exudes originality and Corvette small block performance from the minute you open the hood and see the (correct casting number on the back of the block #3782870) 327-cubic-inch 300 horse V8 engine in it.
This engine gives sprightly around-town performance and cruises at highway speeds at no more than an easy loaf. Those 327’s had new cylinder heads with bigger inlet valves, used hydraulic valve lifters, wedge-type combustion chambers, long-life rams head cast iron exhaust manifolds, dual exhaust system, and a tailored a modern Holly Sniper fuel injection system.
Ours has the correct chrome open air cleaner, factory finned aluminum Chevrolet script valve covers, orange painted block, heads, and intake, shielded distributor, H.D. radiator, and backed by a Muncie 4-speed and a correctly restored chassis with all the right parts.
This restored Sting Ray offers a completely luxurious driving environment. For 1966, the interior features new trim of durable expanded vinyl with a more subtle texture in black and has individual twin bucket-type seats that have a factory bolster-like design for more seating comfort and better lateral support.
The black theme extends to the carpet, door panels, and dual sun visors with controls for the outside-air-type heater and defroster located on the central console along with the electrical clock and radio controls and vent controls that are located under the instrument panel on each side of the steering column.
Matched speedometer and tachometer are the primary instruments in the Sting Ray with a re-settable trip odometer, head-light switch, radio, head-lamp retractor switch, hood release, and four-position ignition switch to complete the instrument panel with the great factory wood steering wheel also.
The styling changes on our 1966 Sting Ray are beautiful and ours is covered with its bright red paint job flowing over the hood and louvers behind the front wheels that help increase air flow through the engine compartment, giving it both an aggressive and sophisticated look.
All the emblems, the rear bumpers and taillights, door handles, the flip-up gas cap, and the black convertible top remain in restored as-new condition as well as the correct 15-inch Rallye wheels with chrome trim rings and caps and redline tires which recreate the original look.
