Chevrolet inadvertently hinted at the potency of 1966’s high performance big block, the first year for the L72 Turbojet 427 cubic inch V8) when it was initially announced as having 450hp, hen inexplicably revised to 425hp shortly after its introduction. In the thick of the “horsepower wars” it was almost unthinkable for Chevy to back down during the model year. It was a time of intense rivalries and such announcements were invariably up, ot down. The L72, n fact, iffered in no way whatsoever from the engine Chevrolet rated at 450hp, xcept in advertising.
The 1966 L72 427/425 was, n truth, fire-breathing behemoth, eveloped from a series of special engines Zora Arkus-Duntov and his performance-oriented Corvette team had cobbled together for field testing while waiting for Corvette’s brakes to catch up with the prodigious power and torque delivered by ever larger, etter breathing V8s.
The L72 option would included four bolt mains, mpact extruded aluminum pistons, very aggressive camshaft, four-barrel Holley 780 CFM carburetor mated to an aluminum intake and a free-flowing exhaust. Additionally, he K66 transistorized ignition was a mandatory option with the L72.Stopping had finally been addressed the year before with the long-awaited advent of four-wheel disc brakes. Now Corvette had the stopping power to match its acceleration, hich made it possible to put 400+ horsepower under the hood.
The stunning 1966 Corvette Sting Ray Coupe pictured here in Laguna Blue with a Bright Blue interior is factory built with the “Big Block" Turbojet 427/425 L72 option.It was judged 97 Points and verified as Numbers Matching at a 2007 Regional NCRS competition in Bergen, T. Corvette guru Al Grenning has also inspected the car and it passed his scrutineering with flying colors.
