Driver Quality: 1966 Chevrolet Corvette Convertible – $49,500

by | Apr 2021 | Classifinds, Sports Car Saturday

Some Craigslist Classifinds we come across leaves us wanting to ask more questions than the listing answers. This 1966 Chevrolet Corvette convertible here on Craigslist in Slatington, Pennsylvania (Allentown) is a prime example. First, the front fenders and hood scoop clearly indicate the possibility of a 427 cubic inch big block under the hood, yet the pictures and description clearly show a 327 cubic inch small block.  That combined with the Rad Era vintage Keystone wheels have us wondering how this Corvette would/could/should have a National Corvette Restoration Society (“NCRS”) sticker on the driver’s side vent window when we always thought that judging was only for stock examples.  Finally, we’ve never tried to waste anyone’s time being dreamers or tire kickers, however, the background pictures have us wanting to see this Corvette just to get a glimpse of the seller’s huge garage.  Luckily, the current caretaker indicates he’s owned this Corvette for 23 years, so chances are good he can answer all of these questions and more.

Offered at $49,500, comparing that price against the Hagerty Insurance Online Valuation Tool confirms the private seller has their C2 priced between this guide’s #3 “Good” estimate of $47,300 and its #2 “Excellent” appraisal of $67,300.  Similarly, the  Collector Car Market Review Online Tool reveals the private seller has their Corvette priced between this guide’s #3 “Good” estimate of $47,400 and its #2 “Very Good” appraisal of $58,275 before adjusting for any options and powertrain.
