The 1966 Chevrolet Corvette was part of the generation known as the C2 or “Sting Ray” generation. It was a two-door, two-seater sports car that came in both coupe and convertible body styles.
Under the hood, the ’66 Corvette boasted a choice of three different V8 engines. The standard engine was a 327 cubic inch small-block V8 that produced 300 horsepower. Customers could also opt for a 350-horsepower version of the same engine, or a 427 cubic inch big-block V8 that churned out up to 425 horsepower.
The ’66 Corvette featured a number of updates from the previous year, including a new egg-crate grille, redesigned backup lights, and a new exhaust system. Inside, the car featured a redesigned center console with more storage space and improved ventilation.
Despite these updates, the ’66 Corvette was largely similar to the previous year’s model. However, it remains a highly sought-after classic car, known for its striking design and impressive performance.
