To those unaware of the new alterations brought forth on this model, the 1966 Corvette might appear to be a retread of its 1965 predecessor. While yes, the changes made for the new model year were very subtle, they resulted in improved performance and an ultimately record-breaking sales year. The new model, albeit similar, would go on to sell over four thousand units more than the 1965 Corvette, marking a new high for the Corvette line.
The lack of noticeable changes was intentional given the company’s intention to release a brand new generation of Corvettes in the coming years. The outstanding sales record proved that the line’s popularity was nowhere near fading and that a new iteration would bring forth an even better reception.
