Yes, a 1966 L79 would have a 12 bolt. There are numerous things that aren't correct, so I'm not sure this car is meant to be a 100% true representation of a 1966 L79, including the fact it's a '67.Bob,
I was just looking at that one. Question for ya, Wouldn't a correct L-79 have a 12 bolt rear?
Maybe you just haven't noticed, Pat, but most of the L79s that show up for sale are SS cars, probably because there were way more of them built in 1966 than other models. 3547 SS L79s were produced in the U.S. in 1966. Another 1734 were Sport Coupes and about 200 two door sedans. There were also a few wagons. You're correct that many of the L79s never make it to market. I had a list of people interested in mine if I ever planned to sell it. When that time came, I just went to the list. First fellow on the list bought it.while we're on the subject of L-79s, how come I never see any ss L-79s? I'm always seeing these non ss ones with the dog dish hub caps. Maybe the ss ones just don't make it to market and are sold before they can get to ebay and the other sites.
It's a very nice car, nice enough for it not to be too cheap.
Even though it's nice I think I'd rather have the Nomad, Bubble Top or the '70 GTO Judge in the background. :yes:
Oh and by the way.... I've been to this place when I went to the NHRA Reunion. It's almost next door to the Corvette museum in Bowling Green, KY.
