1966 Chevrolet Caprice
396 V8, 4-SPD MANUAL, #S MATCHING ENGINE & TRANS, RED ON BLACK, MUSCLE CRUISER!
HIGHLIGHTS: Nice black interior, slick red paint job, classic rally wheels, numbers matching 396 V8 and 4-speed manual transmission, beautiful Caprice!!
BODY OVERVIEW: The exterior body panels on this Caprice are very straight, and it looks to have been well-kept since the restoration. A lot of the metal appears to be original, but it looks like the trunk floor may have been done in the past. Overall, this is a very straight and solid car!
PAINT CONDITION OVERVIEW: The paint job on this car is an older repaint, but it still has that fresh shine! Originally leaving the factory in Aztec Bronze, the new red repaint really spices up the look of this car. The paint job is what we would call a nice, driver-quality paint job that looks nice but doesn't prevent you from enjoying your car for fear of damaging a fresh, high-dollar paint job.There are some small imperfections on the hood as seen in the photos.
INTERIOR CONDITION OVERVIEW: The interior is in excellent condition, and the black bucket seats are the perfect match to the bright red exterior. Additionally, it is worth noting that black is the correct factory interior color for this car.
MECHANICAL OVERVIEW: The number-matching 396 V8 is the perfect choice for a big ol' two door like this, and the 4-speed is just the icing on the cake. This is the perfect weekend cruising car! This Caprice runs like a top, and the front power disc brakes ensure this car stops more than adequately. The steering is tight, and with a posi-trac 12-bolt rear end with 3.42 gears, this Caprice is simply a pleasure to drive.
WHAT YOU'LL LOVE ABOUT THIS CAR: The numbers-matching engine and transmission, the excellent overall condition, and the uniqueness of owning a lesser-seen muscle car!
WHAT YOU MIGHT HATE ABOUT THIS CAR: Big cars aren't for everyone, but regardless this one is hard to nitpick!
DOES IT NEED ANYTHING? The reverse lights are not currently operational, but this puppy is turn-key otherwise!
WHAT BUYER IS LOOKING FOR THIS CAR? This car has mass appeal, and should be the right buy for anyone in search of an affordable American muscle car!
