1966 black corvette l36 convertible exterior

What Mike likes about this Vette:
“I’ve always been curious why the black with red interior color combination is in such high demand! It must be a couple of reasons; one being the fact that the red interior is extremely striking and works well with the ergonomic layout of the dash pads and the cockpit configuration. Black of course in the 60’s was a very rare color and seldom used.  The numbers speak for themselves on how few black Corvettes they built between 1963 and 1969.

So, could it be the fact that the rarity of the black with the red interior makes it more desirable because so few of them were ever built? Or is it truly in the eyes of the beholder and desirable because it makes such a statement? You decide and now that there’s been a considerable price reduction from the owner this car is going bye-bye!”

Check out our great financing options.

Happy Throttling!
