"Cruisin Classics is extremely proud to offer to you this truly exceptional 1966 Corvette Restomod Convertible. It is not every day that we see such a stunningly well built car! This freshly completed two year build has resulted in what is essentialy a brand new 1966 Corvette with a modern engine, drivetrain, suspension, brakes, and amenities. The first thing that catches your eye is the show-quality Torch Red paint - it looks deep enough to dive into and has a beautiful lustrous shine. The Stinger hood features a black accent stripe that ties in perfectly with the brand new Stayfast black convertible top. The chrome bumpers and trim are simply flawless and appear as new. The chrome continues with new Factory Reproductions C7 Z06 wheels wrapped in new Continental Extreme Contact Sport tires. Running down both sides of the car are sidepipes with correct OEM covers that sound simply spectacular when fired up. The body lines of this Corvette are perfectly done and the gaps are literally more consistent than factory production. The pop-up headlights work quickly and in unison, courtesy of a Detroit Speed kit. In addition to the quick action of the headlights, all exterior lights have been upgraded to LED. On the rear of the car you'll notice that an extra set of tail lights has been added for a unique look. All of the exterior badging is bright and new, including the chrome ""cross-flags"" fuel filler cover. All of the glass on the car is brand new as well. You may notice that the windshield wipers are not present and have been capped off for appearance, but we do have the wiper arms and blades should you decide to put them back on. The wipers are, like the pop-up headlights, backed up by a new Detroit Speed kit for quick and reliable operation. Beauty does not just run skin-deep with this Corvette though, it sits on a brand new Coffman Chassis 66 C2 pro-street frame with C6 and C7 suspension components including Ridetech coil-overs! To this frame was added a 2017 6.2 liter LT1 V-8 small block with only 10K miles on it mated to a new 4L65E electronic 4-speed overdrive transmission. This drivetrain is connected to a Dana 44 rear differential with True Trac gears and C8 axels, and a Helix power steering rack has been added. The engine is managed by a Holley Terminator X Max computer and a RestoMod car wiring harness. Also under the hood you'll find an aluminum radiator with dual electric fans, a red and black Corvette engine cover, and a chrome hood hinge. Like everything on this car, the braking system was given full consideration. A Wilwood brake system has been added with stainless steel brake lines and disc brakes on all 4 corners with red painted calipers and drilled and slotted rotors. Just like the brakes, the fuel system is also brand new with a new fuel pump, gas tank, sending unit, and aluminum fuel line. When you open the driver's door you're greeted by a brand new interior that still has a new car smell! The black leather bucket seats have new foam and covers and are very comfortable. The carpet is new, as are the custom ""Stingray"" cross-flags Corvette floor mats. The dash appears stock at first, but like everything else, has been upgraded. It now has Dakota Digital Gauges, a new clock, and an original looking AM/FM/Bluetooth stereo from Antique Automobile Radio Inc. that runs through new speakers. To the left of the upper central console you'll notice the discretely placed control for the Vintage Air system with Sanden compressor that pumps out ice-cold AC. The steering wheel is wrapped in black leather and is backed by power steering. Windows are power operated and glide up and down with ease. The automatic transmission is controlled by a new Shiftworks shifter with a leather boot. The passenger side of the dash features a new glovebox and grab-handle for spirited driving. The builder has provided us with a spreadsheet that itemizes all expenditures involved in the build as well as a thumb-drive of photos taken during the process. This Corvette is truly top-of the -line in every respect and would be a centerpiece of attention in any collection. Builds of this quality level are few and far between, so don't let this opportunity pass you by! Give our friendly staff a call today.

Here at Cruisin Classics, we understand that you have many options when choosing where you purchase your classic, muscle or collector car and we would like to thank you for considering us.
Cruisin Classics has been buying and selling cars for many years.. The majority were your average daily drivers but our passion has always been in muscle cars and hot rods so in 1996, Cruisin Classics built a 56,000 sq.ft. showroom located in Columbus, OH that they still operate out of today. All of our vehicles are hand-picked and selected to ensure they fit our inventory. This facility is now arguably one of the best-stocked collections for sale in the US housing hundreds of unique automobiles all under one roof. We invite you to our facility! There is something for everybody when you come to visit.
After years of serving as central Ohio's premiere classic car dealer at Cruisin Classics Auto Sales, we saw an unfulfilled need that was not being met for our clients. We loved helping match our clients with the classic and American muscle cars of their dreams. But what about after the purchase? We recognized that our clients needed a trusted resource to continue to care for their classic vehicles. It did not sit well with us that our valued clients and their incredible vehicles were being outsourced to, sometimes several, third-party resources for maintenance and performance needs. We also wanted to help the many people that we had met over the years who already owned classic vehicles which were in need of restoration, upgrades, and maintenance. Too often, we were seeing vehicles with so much potential left sitting in garages under covers because their owners did not know who to turn to for such specialized work. It is our goal to offer our clients a truly comprehensive, seamless, and enjoyable classic car ownership experience, from purchase to maintenance to storage. Thus, Cruisin Classics Performance Center was born. We have cherry-picked the most talented, experienced, and passionate team of technicians to offer our clients a true one-stop-shop solution for any and all of their classic car needs. Our honest business model has lasted almost 25 years to date and Cruisin Classics has a worldwide reputation as one of the best in the business.
Outside of the shop, this business has afforded us the opportunity to be actively involved in our community and fulfill our goal of supporting several local and national organizations that hold a special place in our hearts. We are proud sponsors of the Kiwanis Club of Columbus, the Columbus USO, Honor Flight, Special Olympics, multiple car clubs, and much more.
In conclusion, 100% customer satisfaction is our main goal. Always has been.. always will be. We would like to invite anyone considering one of our vehicles to come to our beautiful facility to inspect the car in person or send somebody on your behalf.
