Final setup/carb:  when Fraser Dante did the final setup, we discovered that the believed factory original carburetor simply was worn out, we rebuilt it twice, runs only OK, so we just purchased and then installed by our GM master tech a brand new Holley #4160C ‘Street Warrior’ 600 cfm  carburetor, (LINK), this was chosen by our tech team to achieve very strong street performance,  with the new carb, we did a new gasket setup, then we adjusted the linkage to work and move correctly, then we put on the stock air cleaner, did 2 road tests, this works perfectly and pulls very strong and even, now both of the carburetors come with this package,  here is professional mechanical work to build a classic Corvette that works exceptionally,

Transmission: here is a just terrific original Powerglide unit in the car, when Fraser Dante was maintaining this great Corvette, we had a very top sub build this unit to very top standards, very tight bands, has about 1000 miles, when we did the final test drive and set up of this car with the new car done after Christmas,  this transmission pulls like a fright train,  the shifts just ‘bams’ into gears, just a truly wonderful fresh transmission with a very positive strength,

Finally there is a fresh strong DuraLast 750 CCA battery just installed, here is an area that is most important, then the oil used is the very top quality Valvoline VR1 high zinc racing oil,  new filter, then this has the final road testing and setup for Spring 2020, 

History:  here is a car that is a long term Atlanta car, was owned for over 10 years by a local executive,  Fraser Dante kept this car always  in first class condition, this meticulous work had the goal to make sure this had the very best mechanicals,  the file contains $12,483 of the work by Fraser Dante that are but only a partial costing as we did other work for said past Atlanta customer,  then  Fraser Dante got this car back as the first customer retired, the we did the final work and set up for the restoration and driving just had 3 road tests for the Spring 2020 season, the body is just unmolested and all body lines and fenders are believed ‘as factory’,  we know that the suspension is top Driven Show with said 4 wheel alignment being completed, the upper A arms bushings are new, there is virtually no body and suspension sound when just driven,  like a brand new car, the reason for sale is that our existing Atlanta customer simply has no space for this so nice classic 1966 Corvette that is matching numbered, has the proper factory safety belts, expensive items like the correct factory teak wheel are very valuable,  all the factory gauges work and the final top quality show detailing is just completed,

Wheels/tires/chassis:  this has really great suspension with no sounds while driving, really with the bushings installed and the new 4 wheel alignment completed by our top sub, this really drives amazing with no pulling at all and tracks straight, even when the brake pedal is applied, stops in a straight line, really terrific, the wheels are expensive finned knock offs that look just great, the tires are new Falken Protouring black wall radials, 215/70/15 for the chosen performance tire to make this handle and stop better than new,

The underchassis is in just exceptional top  condition, just as factory with a very solid frame,  during its life, a light coat of black paint was used on said underchassis to protect,  it looks very nice and really unmolested,  it is even better in person than the new photos show,  one could strip said paint from the factory underchassis for a higher show presentation with the bare fiberglass showing
