1966 Chevrolet Corvette Coupe (My Pet Vet)

Photo of a 1966 Chevrolet Corvette Coupe (My Pet Vet)


Well I own this car for 38 years and did a total body-off restoration on it. I drove the car every day from 1977 to 1987. What started out as a paint job, ended up as a complet restoration. We dissasembeled the entire car. Put the body up on 4, 55 Gallon Drums, and stripped the chassis. The entire job took 5 years, as we finished it in August of 1992! The was back to the original way it rolled off the production line.
This car is the sixth to last made in 1966, one the last day of production. It was Friday July 29th, 1966. The car was driven off the production line in the St. Louis Production Plant by Ruth Lawson, and give to the car's final Inspector, Tissy Smith. The car was shipped to Reedman Chevrolet, in Langhorn, PA, and sold to a guy in New Jersey. He had the car for 3 years, and traded it in. Another guy bought the car who lived in New York. He had the car for 4 years. He traded it into dealer, who sold it to a Wholesaler in the Bronx New York. That is where I saw it, and brought it home.
