This 1966 Chevrolet Corvette Convertible replica is quite an interesting machine.
It has the iconic look you love, and there’s proper big block power. This even gives you some unique features and allows for you to dream bigger than even the Sting Ray could. So it all makes to a package that really gets you thinking.
When you want to get the Corvette look correct, it always helps to start with a bright red. After all, that’s the preferred color for America’s sports car. This one also gets many of the Sting Ray design pieces that you love correct, like the sharply creased fender tops and even the big block stinger hood. But then there’s also a style all its own with the sleeker bumper-free rear end and the plexiglass front light covers that give a Grand Sport style look. This even offers something that you couldn’t get in the C2, a proper trunk!
This one was definitely meant to be open to the world. The red and black on the bucket seats and matching door panels coordinate with the exterior. And the tuck and roll-style inserts add some nice flair. The ratchet shifter, upgraded gauges, and sports steering wheel on a tilt column are all part of a drive-oriented package – just like any good Corvette. The dash and center console have some custom wood paneling. It would be easy for you to change if you really wanted to, but you’ll soon understand why this theme is quite appropriate.
Another great part about this replica is he engine bay. The 396 cubic-inch big block fits in there with a ton of room to spare. So not only does it look like there’s more weight towards the center of the car, but also there’s extra space for you to add extra go-fast goodies. Of course, this one is already pretty darn strong with the big block power enhanced by an Edelbrock four-barrel carburetor, Weiand Action Plus intake, upgraded distributor, and shorty headers. And those side pipes are directly fed by the motor. So with one twist of the key, this one produces a wicked sound that lets you know how it earns the Bad Lucifer nickname you saw on the dash. The Powerglide automatic transmission may even make you think about drag racing this convertible. Then again, you also have power steering and power brakes with discs up front. So it can just be a fine cruiser, too.
