Vehicle Description

1966 Chevrolet Caprice - Time capsule! 1966 matching number big block 396 Caprice is as close to 100% original as you'll find. I've been a classic car enthusiast all of my life and this is one of the finest example of a true unrestored classic I've ever seen. Original paint! Original interior, matching number, drivetrain (including a12 bolt rear end), Original A/C compressor that still works! Yes the original A/C compressor still blows cold!!! The matching number 396 runs exceptionally smooth, you can barely hear it run. By far the smoothest running big block Chevrolet I've ever seen. The factory Quadrajet is perfect! Never even a hint of hesitation, not on start off or when the 4 barrel kicks in. Very dependable, drive anywhere. Starts as soon as the starter turns, you can't hardly touch the starter without it cranking. The original turbo 400 transmission shifts excellent, smooth shifting, responsive, and kicks down into lower gears surprisingly well. Runs and drives like an absolute dream! Like taking a trip back to 1966. Rides like you're riding on air yet handles surprising good. Not even a hint of play in the steering. Just really unbelievable how great this car drives. Rare console and gauge package and all the gauges work! Still has a hint of new car smell in the trunk. The original lacquer shines remarkably for it's age. Original build sheet as well as dealer paperwork, owners manual etc. 3 original T3 headlights. Has a very few flaws, there's a few nick's and scratches but remember the paint is 53 years old. There is one small noticeable dent in the right rear quarter panel, I've done my best to show it in the photos. The driver seat has one tear and slight side wear and the dash pad has a crack. The headliner has one seam that the thread has turned loose and one hole in the fabric. There's a new headliner ordered and the labor has already been paid for. Honestly since it's the original headliner, I would probably have someone resew the seam.
