Sweet '66 Coupe!

Is there still a 427 under that Big Block style bonnet?.

I think it has a 350 under the bonnet, would be surprised it it was anything bigger than that....

That Corvette must be quick with its fibreglass body. Dont see those anymore. Very nice indeed!

I saw the car a year ago and it was a big block which according to a mechanic was a 454.Also don't think for a moment that a road going 'Vette is light 'cos it's glass. With that ladder chassis and monster motor, box and rear diff they're damn heavy. Grunty.
