    This extremely rare numbers matching Corvette is one of only 20 examples produced in 1966 with the combination of 390 horsepower, 427 cubic inch engine, air conditioning and M-35 Powerglide automatic transmission. It is believed to be one of the very first air-conditioned big block Corvettes produced, due to the early VIN number and the use of pre-production parts in its original construction. An extremely well-optioned example, it featuring side exhaust, knock-off wheels, red line tires, a real teakwood steering wheel and power steering. It has been completely restored to stringent NCRS specifications, and is finished in the rare Trophy Blue with a dark blue leather interior and a white soft top. This Corvette roadster represents a rare opportunity for the astute collector or Corvette enthusiast to purchase a real “blue chip” automotive investment, representing the best in Corvette power, performance, prestige and rarity.
