1966 Chevrolet Corvette
Please take a look at all of the pictures located on google photos in this link.They should answer most of your questions.The link may not work on your phone.
I purchased this last year from the nephew of the owner who was moved to an assisted living facility.I was given a bill of sale and could not figure out all of the hoops required to jump through to get a VIN tag or a title. I was told the gentleman was building it from the ground up from parts.So, I assume you could apply for a VIN and title like one would for a kit car.
There is no VIN tag, no trim tag, and no title.It will be sold with a bill of sale only.
Convertible 194676S123952. This is what the previous owner told his nephew it was.
I had a Carmel police officer run both VIN possibilities based on the frame number and it is not stolen.However, he would not give me a print out.
1966 frame (based on frame number) with convertible birdcage.The rolling chassis has been redone and looks decent.The birdcage has a hole on the left side, but I believe is solid.
Non-match 350 engine that I believe has been been rebuilt.It has aluminum heads roller rockers, and I assume a roller cam.I replaced the fuel pump and rebuilt the carburetor and then it started.
The transmission is also non-numbers matching 4 speed manual.
The body is a reproduction body made by usbody.
It needs a lot of work to make fit properly, but I assume it's doable for someone with the skills. I trimmed it enough just to get it on the rolling chassis and get the door on it for shipping. It does not require a birdcage so it will take some more tweaking to adapt it to one.The doors are original factory doors and have the internals including the glass. The hood I believe is also from usbody.com and has not yet been trimmed.
A Vintage AC kit is present, and I believe all of the parts are here.
I'm confident for the right person with the right skills this could be a great hotrod.The mechanicals seem solid and there were a lot of new parts used on the rolling chassis.As far as I can tell most of the parts needed to put it together are here.
The only parts I have that aren't pictured are the front windshield, rear window glass, and AC condenser.
I'm a bonified car guy and I just don't have the time or know how to complete a project like this.I'm not looking to cheat anyone or mis-represent this project and would be thrilled to see it wind up in the right hand and on the road.
