First offered as a sport sedan option in 1965, the Caprice became
its own luxury series in 1966, with a host of accessories. Similar
to the Impala in four-door hardtop and six- and nine-passenger
station wagons, the two-door hardtop had its own formal
roofline.The Caprice line was aimed at Ford's LTD, and 181,000
Caprices were sold in 1966, excluding station wagons. Engines
ranged from 283-cid, 327-cid, and 396-cid V-8s, with a 390-hp
427-cid option at the top. This 1966 Caprice sports the 327-cid,
rated at 350 horsepower. The owner states the original block is
still in place; however, a set of 202 "PowerPak" heads, a more
aggressive camshaft and a set of exhaust headers help get the most
out of this powerplant! A 2 speed Powerglide transmission delivers
that power to the rear wheels. Other modifications include: Chevy
Rally wheels with Corvette-inspired Beauty Rings, an aftermarket
exhaust system and a black vinyl roof. Originally a white hardtop,
the black vinyl helps the beautiful white paint stand out! The
owner states he purchased this Caprice from the original owner's
family about 9 years ago and all the work has completed since then.
