1966 Corvette

The 1966 Corvette was very similar to the 1965 model and was originally intended to be the last year of this design. There were subtle differences in trim, including the addition of the Corvette script to the hood, and a new square mesh cast grill. The roof vents were deleted. Headrests were available for the first time, backup lights were incorporated into the rear taillights and Holley carburetors were now standard. This was the first year for the famous 427 cubic inch Big Block engine.
