Production date of May 19th, 1966 and delivered new by Weaver-Yemm Chevrolet, Galesburg, IL (dealer code 665 in zone 47) per the official NCRS/GM Shipping Data Records (SDR). Looks, runs, and drives well. Many original parts have been professionally rebuild such as the rear suspension and differential, alternator, carburetor, starter and cylinder heads. This car is not perfect, interior is a 5 and paint has a few minor nicks and crazing at the engine hood area but has all the correct big ticket items parts to take to NCRS standard. Had this car for several years as part of my collection.

This question is asked often; "what is my reserve?" My reserve is set at a same quality Corvette sold at the big Scotsdale auction without the Buyer Premium (10%). It is respectful considering S.B. Vettes that are in terrible condition selling for $35K and have the Misses asking; What were you thinking?

A more thorough review of the car is listed below. I have tried to describe the car as accurate as possible. Thank you for looking and please remember to inspect before buying. Vehicle is sold as-is with no warranty. Any questions: Bill at 407-451-4515. located Orlando FL.
