Description:
This 1966 Chevrolet Corvette Restomod has a meaner stance that tells you there\'s serious performance within. Still, most people will likely not be expecting something as large or a wicked as the 502ci big block upgrade. And with everything from the five-speed stick, to the custom A/C interior, this makes for a unique total package that\'s built to enjoy to the fullest.

This one was built to look mean. You\'ve got great classic Sting Ray performance pieces, like the raised big block hood and stand-out side pipes. These are joined by unmistakable upgrades, like the 502 callouts and the Weld wheels with an aggressive 16/18 inch front/rear stagger. But more than just a powerful Corvette, this one gets the fundamentals right for what you want in a classic C2 coupe. The two-piece bumpers look nice, the hideaway headlights fit flush, the doors close with confidence, and the red paint has a good look going down the road. So you can tell there was more thought that went into this one than just installing a big motor.

The interior is a very cool sight. 1966 is one of later years for the C2, but the interior is borrowed from a final-year C3. It helps tell the unique story of this car. It has the frame and body of a 1966, but the tub is from a 1982. That\'s how you can fit the power-adjustable leather high-back bucket seats into this classic. Other great C3 pieces include the well-done dash with full auxiliary gauge layout taking center stage. There are some more well-integrated upgrades, like the retro-style AM/FM digital tuner with cassette, and the air conditioning is blowing cold with modern R134a. The sports steering wheel is on a tilt/telescopic column for good comfort, and your right hand is going to love the shifter position.

We be you already have snuck a few pics at the monster under the hood. The 502 cubic-inch crate V8 looks great with it bight air grabber, red valve covers, and the kind of size that tells you they likely couldn\'t get any more V8 power in there. And this big block has the right go-fast goodies, like a Holley four-barrel carburetor, GM aluminum intake, aluminum heads, and headers that feed into those side pipes. You take complete control of this enhanced power and its thunderous soundtrack with the Tremec five-speed manual transmission. The front end has been beefed up, and we all love the C2 for introducing the independent rear suspension to Corvettes. Plus, power steering, power brakes, four-wheel discs, and modern ZR rated tires make for an outstanding total driving package.

This is the true classic Corvette shape with extra power, poise, and comfort. It makes for a cool custom that you just know needs to be in your garage. Since the tub is from a 1982 Corvette, the car is titled as an \'82. Call today!!!
