This 1966 Corvette was Nassau Blue when it was sold new in Seattle, WA.
It became a slalom and drag race car in 1973 with a 350CID full race engine, chassis and body modifications and was repainted black and orange. It was featured in the May 1979 “Keepin’ Track of Corvettes” magazine and raced extensively in western USA and Canada, co-sponsored by Norris Cams.
In 1981 it was exported to Calgary Alberta Canada and converted to an endurance road racer. It was registered with Canadian Auto Sport Club - Prairie Region (CASC #4-197) and won races at Edmonton Speedway in Alberta, and at the 1983 Knox Mountain Hill Climb in Kelowna, British Columbia.
In 1987 it was restored to stock body shape to meet current vintage racing requirements and repainted red and white. It competed in many vintage road races at Race City, Calgary AB, Seattle WA, Portland OR, Westwood BC, and Palm Springs CA, and appeared in the April 1990 VETTE magazine.
In 1989 it was returned to the USA and prepared for the 1990 AvD-Oldtimer-Grand-Prix in Nürburgring, Germany. Restored in 2000 for SVRA by Roy Sjoberg.
