1966 Chevrolet Corvette

Remember the days when a 300-horsepower engine came standard, but an AM/FM radio option would cost you about $200? If so, you might remember the 1966 Chevrolet Corvette, an incredible machine. 9958 Sport Coupes were produced, and 17,762 Convertibles.

A variety of engines were available, including the 427 big block. The 427-ci V8 had two versions, rated at 390 and 425 horsepower. Any of the engines would get the driver to his or her destination in a hurry and in style. Truly one of the most beautiful Corvettes, the 1966 helped to usher in the big-block era in style.
