Truly coming into its own in the 1960s, Corvette production had increased from about 10,000 cars each year to about 27,000 cars per year. The variety of engine options also increased and several special performance editions were offered.
This blue beauty represents the pinnacle of the C2, the second phase of Corvette body style, which was introduced in 1963 and gave way to the C3 in 1968. The C2 represented a sexy vision of the future, fueled by 60’s space exploration and the burgeoning sexual revolution.
This ’66 fastback boasts numerous C2 design refinements — gone is the split rear window that had impaired visibility, as are other style elements deemed fussy. C2 Corvettes are among the most expensive to purchase and restore, but also among the best investments and represents the quintessence of sleek, sexy, 60’s cool. Can you dig it?
