Carlisle Auction Preview: 1966 Corvette Convertible


1966 CorvetteCorvettes at Carlisle and the Mecum auction will be the center of the Corvette universe for the next 7 days. This auction is traditionally one of the largest Corvette auctions of the year. Last week, we featured a Triple Black 1969 Convertible. Our second featured Corvette that’s available at the Carlisle Auction is this beautiful Milano Maroon 1966 Corvette: 1966 Chevrolet Corvette Convertible – Lot #S65 Same owner for 32 years, has owner history. Original/Numbers Matching, Restoration completed in June 2006, all receipts. New paint, carpet, interior, 90% all original. 327/350 HP original (Block 38581747) L-79 FT227HT 112715. Style 66 467, trim st, body A-3834, paint 988 Milano Maroon. Original Muncie 4 speed, close ratio, M-21, 3:70 posi rear (AO), alternator (110069). Original 2 ½” cast factory headers, brand new factory original Holley Carb (3367A), Original factory teakwood steering wheel, AM-FM working original radio with power antenna. Factory side exhaust, gold line tires, Original factory hubcaps, New soft top. 57,947 Miles. Original jack and spare tire and original Owners Manual. Again, it is our second feature Corvette to not have a big block, but this Corvette is a great entry car for the new collector or someone wanting a turnkey midyear. Fully documented, longtime ownership and an optional motor all work in favor of this classic. We place an expected range of this Corvette to be a good buy between $48,000 and $55,000. One year appreciation levels for the 66 Convertible are running just under 5%. The Mecum auction at Corvettes of Carlisle runs August 25-26th in Carlisle, PA. Source: Mecum Collector Car Auctioneers
