This is one of the few surviving 450-horsepower-rated 427 CID big block Corvette from this year, as the production numbers for this specific model range from 83 to 166, making it the lowest production of all mid-year big block cars (excluding the L88 and L89 vehicles, which are in a league of their own). The exact reason for Chevrolet dropping the rating down to 425 hp is shrouded in some mystery, but most historians agree that the decision was a political one, as the 450’s were a headache to insure.
Making this even more of a rarity, this is the lowest production number of the 1966 450 hp Corvettes ever documented and it comes with a plethora of additional options, including: tinted glass, power windows, special suspension, posi-traction rear axle, power brakes, transistor ignition system, side-mounted and off road exhaust system, power steering, cast aluminum knock-off wheels, goldwall tires, and AM-FM radio. While it is impossible to say exactly how many of this exact vehicle rolled off the line, over the last fifty years, as the sands of time have eroded the footprint Chevrolet made with its 450hp V8, it is safe to say that this is one of the few left with these options, color, and engine, possibly the last.
This Corvette is a unicorn of the car industry as even the biggest Corvette fans may never see one and some even question its existence. Search for this vehicle on the internet and you’ll find countless debates on Corvette websites and forums where half of those involved claim it to be nothing more than a myth. It’s not. This unicorn is real, and there is more than enough paperwork provided with the vehicle to prove it, including the Protect-O Plate and much more.
