Default 1966 Vert - Needs Restoration or RestoMod

#1 --- I work for Vengeance Racing (Premier Vendor on this site) PLEASE DO NOT CALL HERE FOR INFORMATION

#2 --- This car belongs to my almost sister-in-law (LaCretia). It was her husband's car since December 1968 and he recently passed away. She is now the legal owner. It will be sold with a Bill of Sale (no title). She is also a lawyer in case there are any issues.


The circumstances regarding why the owner is not listing the car: The owner is not a CF member and has no plans to join. She is related to me. I posted here to give CF members the first shot at purchasing this car without excess fees.

The role the thread starter will play in the sale: I am basically the messenger so Lacretia does not have to deal with this in the wake of her husband passing. Next month marks 5o years he has owned this car. It was the car he picked her up with when they first met. Please understand I am trying to help her avoid additional grief.

And agreeing to participate in trying to resolve any post-sale issues: Exactly why I am here!

#3 --- The car will be located in my garage in Canton GA beginning this weekend (if anyone wants to arrange a visit)

#4 --- The car does not run, but I have put 4 new tires on it to make it roll nicely.

#5 --- The car appears to need just about everything replaced or restored. However it could be brought back as a driver using some of the existing parts as is
  • 1966 Convertible
  • Includes hard top (also needs restoring)
  • Factory Air Conditioning car
  • Factory standard 327 with Muncie 4-speed (more info to come on transmission)
  • Currently has 1974 era small block (not running; condition unknown)
  • Needs complete restoration (or excellent restomod)
  • Frame has surface rust only
  • Bird cage is flawless from what I can picture through the glove box (had to peel back insulation, but paint is perfect with no rust)
  • Only rust through area is the thin plate behind the driver's wheel well (and inside the rocker)
  • Car originally purchased in Minnesota and moved to Houston Texas
  • Current owner purchased in December 1968 (in Houston Texas)
  • Car moved within two years to Atlanta GA and has been here since then
  • [Have original promissory note for the purchase in 1968/1969
  • Includes protecto-plate and original owners manual


All photos can be seen here:

Please contact me directly with questions or concerns at [email protected] (Please do not call my place of work)

If you wish to purchase the car I can put you in contact with the owner (LaCretia).

Price is best offer. I have been told between $18k and $25k. So I am setting asking price at $25,000

Has it been hit in the rear? Also, with all that paperwork, why is there not a title?

Not unusual for an old car that hasn't been on the road for years. Many states didn't require titles back then.
I wonder if the owners protection plan is still in effect?

She has not been able to locate the title. Let's just say her husband, although he was a lawyer, was not big on being organized. He had Parkinson's for last 9 years and he refused to help sell the car in any way, so getting information from him was near impossible. We dug up what paperwork we have and the earliest registration I found for Georgia was either 1969 or 1970 in his name. As stated above, cars older than 1985 do not require a title in Georgia.

Titles are not required in Georgia for vehicles 1985 or older, but you will need to provide the Bill of Sale when you register the car in your name, so be sure to take it with you to your local County Tag Office's. If the car is newer than 1985, a titled is required.If the registration is missing, you'll need to go to your local County Tag Office's after contacting law enforcement to inspect the vehicle and the VIN. With this documentation and your Bill of Sale, you'll be able to register the car in your name.
Of course you would need to check the laws for your state. If a title is required then it may take extra work to acquire a title.

Please address site rules for selling for another person, particularly the bullet points, thanks.

Site users sometimes list Corvettes for a friend or relative who is unable to market and sell the car for themselves for some legitimate reason.

We tried a revision to the rules to allow those listings to take place without the need to get prior approval from an administrator so long as the threads disclosed the circumstances of the nominee sale and stated the role they would play in resolving any post-sale disputes.

It hasnít worked as it has created a proliferation of people offering Corvettes for sale for a friend or relative who declare they will take no responsibility in resolving post-sale disputes. Thatís potentially harmful to site users, so we are reverting to some of the previous language.

Going forward, those listing cars or parts they do not personally own must make this clear in their sales thread, posting:
  • The circumstances regarding why the owner is not listing the car
  • The role the thread starter will play in the sale
  • And agreeing to participate in trying to resolve any post-sale issues.
Threads failing to address those points will be removed by moderators.

Potential buyers should be aware of who the actual owner of the car or parts is and who would be responsible for potential disputes before proceeding with a purchase.

When I lived in New York I had a '67 coupe with no title. Just wasn't any, just the half of registration to sign. Here in Iowa - title. Titles are nice. But if you have correct paper work, one should not have a problem getting a title.

Looks like a great deal for someone. I wish one in NJ would come along like yours.

Best of luck.

Clean off the front and back windows. You'll get more inquiries.
