In 1966, the 427 cubic inch was introduced in the Corvette and all 427 engine cars received special hoods. The high performance solid lifter 427 was initially listed at 450HP but for reasons unclear the rating, not the actual output, was reduced to 425HP shortly after introduction. It is also of note that some 390HP engines were rated at 400HP. Backup lights became standard and were incorporated into the existing rear inboard taillight housings.
The car has no signs of any major accidents and is the beneficiary of an obviously recent beautiful repaint in it's original 'Rally Red' factory color and looks extremely striking with a Black interior and soft top. The car must be driven and seen to be truly appreciated - drives straight as an arrow with no strange road wobbles, shakes or rattles - a truly remarkable daily driver that will give any modern day sports car a run for it's money! The 4 speed manual transmission shifts smoothly through all the gears and the temperature always remains cool!
