This is definitely not just any 1966 C2 coupe.  If the name L72 rings a bell then you know this is a truly unique find.  Produced in October of 1965, this is one of the first 297 450 HP C2’s produced at A.O. Smith and even has the 450 HP sticker on the air cleaner.  As we all know, the 450 was a conservative rating on this fantastic  427 “big block” motor.  The L72 was also known for its aluminum pistons and intake.  This is the original matching number motor that came with the car when new.  Shortly after the 450hp L72 was introduced, it was downgraded to 425HP making this 450 version all the more sought after.  The transmission is a Doug Nash 5 speed which was installed at a Chevrolet dealer in the 1970’s. 

 

 

 

Some other noteworthy options are the original teak steering wheel(N32), headrests(A82),  black leather(trim code 402), and the iconic factory side pipes(N14).   The motor and transmission were rebuilt locally 3 years ago by the current owner.  The striking Nassau blue exterior perfectly highlights the lines of this Vette.
