Beautiful 1966 Chevrolet Corvette Convertible Restomod. Modern technology
and vintage looks make for the best of both worlds in Resto Modding, especially
it seems when the object of one's creative urges is a mid-year Corvette.
Whether in coupe or convertible form, the original Sting Ray body style is still
as fresh and exciting today as it was when introduced in 1963; when retrofitted
with modern powerplants, suspension, brakes, interiors, paint and wheel/tire
combinations, the results can be spectacular.

In the case of this 1966 Corvette convertible. The complete frame-off build began
with the complete disassembly and preparation of the frame. All the seams were
welded and the cleaned-up piece was powder coated Red for maximum durability
and to match the car's mouth-watering Red and White base/clear coat color
scheme, including the Stinger stripe on the big-block hood. A 427 CI Generation
5 big block Merlin engine uses advanced Bigstuff3 electronic fuel injection to
generate copious power through a close ratio M21 4-speed to a 4.11 rear end.
Boyd Coddington 18-inch spoked alloy wheels are used in conjunction with power
rack and pinion steering and custom Precision 4-wheel disc brakes, and shorter
half shafts are employed to accommodate the car's wider rear tires. With all those
changes, the car's appearance remains virtually stock, even in the factory-style
side exhaust.

That theme is maintained inside the very sharp White on Red cockpit, the only
obvious changes being the leather wrapped billet steering wheel, Hurst shifter,
White-faced gauges and billet pedals. A well done and very appealing mid-year
Resto Mod. With cold blowing A/C this car is even great to cruise in on the hot
summer days.
