[VIDEO] Barrett-Jackson Palm Beach 2010: 1966 Corvette 427/425hp NOM

Here is an interesting 1966 Corvette Convertible that appeared Saturday at the Barrett-Jackson Collector Car Auction in Palm Beach. The Triple Black Corvette features a 427/425 hp L72 and is fresh off a restoration, but it comes with a caveat: Originally a 427/425 car, it doesn’t have the original engine.

The C4 version of the Corvette ZR-1 was nicknamed “The King of the Hill” for good reason.

Barrett-Jackson Palm Beach 2010: 2009 Competition Sport Corvette

When we published the final production numbers for the 2009 Corvettes, we said thirty years from now Corvette collectors would be seeking out the GT1 ALMS Championship and the Competition Sport Editions due to their low production numbers.
