With outstanding provenance, this vehicle has its original Protect-O-Plate which reveals it was sold new by Burt Chevrolet Inc (now John Elway Chevrolet) to a Frank Giordano in Denver, Colorado on 6th of June, 1966.
A number's matching car, it is finished in gleaming Rally Red (paint code 974 – 12% of total production) and originally having standard black vinyl trim, this car's seats have been upgraded to sumptuous black leather during its journey.
This car has the mighty L72, 425HP V8 engine with 11:1 compression, larger intake valves, a bigger Holley four-barrel carburettor atop an aluminium manifold, mechanical lifters and four-hole (instead of two-hole) main bearing caps.
Like all 427ci Corvettes, this car has the mandatory combination of Positraction (limited slip differential) and the close-ratio M21 Muncie four-speed transmission. In addition all 427ci cars had their suspension upgraded and a higher capacity radiator and sump fitted.
This car has the iconic side pipes and sits on new turbine wheels with P48 knockoffs and new redline tyres.
Inside the leather seats are in fantastic condition, the original steering wheel is intact, the carpet is good and the door cards are excellent.
The car's chrome, paint and stainless steel are all in excellent condition.
All gauges work as does the clock, power ariel and the AM/FM radio.
With 425HP and a four speed crammed into one of the most beautiful cars ever produced, it doesn?t get much tougher than this.
An extremely desirable blue chip investment.
