Bold School: 1966 Chevrolet Corvette 427/425 Roadster
The 1966 Chevrolet Corvette 427/425 Roadster featured a new Mark IV 396-cubic inch big-block V8 engine. This engine was derived from a 472-cubic inch "mystery motor" which was banned from NASCAR. This vette had 4-wheel disc brakes with 4-piston calipers that contributed to the braking/stopping power which went hand in hand with the powerful engine.
