New ’66 models were different for new: plated, cast metal grille with an “egg crate” insert, chrome plated exhaust bezels, spoke styl wheel covers, vinyl covered headliner, and the elimination of roof vents. The side louvers remained, and the new 427 engine came with the power bulge hood. Only 2% of the vettes sold had the 3 speed transmission, while 89 had the four speed manual transmission. 13% had a tilting steering wheel, and 20% had power steering.
