I purchased my 1966 roadster in late 2004 from Westchester PA. It is an early production number vehicle, assembled in September 1965 and is a fully documented, number matching example. Painted in original colour, Silver Pearl with silver Interior and fitted with an L-36 427-390hp motor. The car had only 19,712 documented miles when I purchased it and now has just over 25,000 miles. My research has revealed two previous owners, purchased new from Byrne Bros Chevrolet in North White Plains, New York on 16/12/1965. The original owner later relocated to Pennsylvania where the vehicle remained until my purchase.
The vehicle is the 318th car built of the 1966 model, as a result quite a few 1965 396-425hp parts were utilized in its manufacture. All these engine and body anomalies, compared to later production number cars, are now documented in the latest 1966 NCRS judging manual and have also been published in several editions of the NCRS Corvette Restorer magazine.
The vehicle was flight judged at the 2006 Melbourne NCRS chapter meet, at which it received a Top Flight and the Ladies Choice award. This was the second Australian NCRS chapter judging meet, at which several senior US NCRS judges attended, one of which was Mr. Roy Sinor, the then NCRS National judging chairman.
