A complete history on this 1966 Corvette Stingray Coupe has been posted on the ad page. It would seem that volumes of information is known about this car. From the original owners to the current restored condition, you could write a book. But the most important thing to know about this Stingray is that it is a numbers matching L79 with the desirable high horsepower 327/350 motor. Secondly, you should know that it is so authentic that it has won Bloomington Gold certification.
They say if you tip this Corvette’s hood forward you’ll find the car’s original 327 cubic inch V8 which wears a correct 3858174 casting number and a matching 113957 partial VIN. Introduced as the ultimate option for Sting Ray owners who wanted to be just as quick in the corners as they were on the straight-a-ways, Chevrolet’s lightweight L79 utilizes a wide bore block, a forged steel crank, forged aluminum dome pistons and the first high performance hydraulic camshaft ever put into production car to turn a stout 11 to 1 compression ratio into 350 horsepower and 360 lb./ft. of torque.
Flip this small block Vet upside down and you’ll find a fully restored chassis which is in good shape, and today, looks much as it did when it rolled off the showroom floor. At the center of the car a rugged Muncie M20 4-speed transmission, which wears a correct 3885010 casting number, a matching 113957 partial VIN and the P0208 build stamp decoded above, utilizes a new Centerforce II clutch and ARP fasteners to deliver the launches and potent acceleration Duntov Corvettes are famous for.
