This was a ground breaking car in 1966 with many unique features.
It was futuristic and highly engineered. The first American front
wheel drive in about 30 years. Unique style in and out and a motor
under the hood that offered an abundance of power.
This one is an excellent example. Only 69,620 miles. It is obvious
it has always been well cared for. Great list of features and the
color is outstanding.
EXTERIOR: It's only as tall as a Corvair, the hood is long and the
deck is short. This is a big car that could almost be considered a
sports car. The body is pristine. It fits right, it is arrow
straight with no rust or damage. Repainted 1 time in it's beautiful
original Dubbonet color. It is polished to a smooth high gloss
finish. Hidden pop up headlights, no vinyl top and a sloped trunk
make it look sleak. The bumpers were rechromed, the back bumper is
notched out for the exhaust. Very nice original trim, grill and
taillights. Optional cornering lights. Big shiny chrome wheels on
like new radial tires.
INTERIOR: Very cool interior, same plum color as the outside.
Unique designed dash in mint shape. It has a barrel roll
speedometer, upgraded quartz movement in the clock, rare signal
seeking AM-FM radio and climate control. It also has a rare tilt
and telescopic wheel. The ashtrays are as big as a glove box in
todays cars. Lighters and ashtrays are clean. The glovebox light
works, it has original owners manual and protect-o-plate. Down on
the floor is the original carpet with sewn in mat. Original door
panels are very good with a door handle in the back for the rear
passengers. Headliner and visors are excellent. It has a strato
seat with bucket backs and bench bottom with armrest. Original
upholstery is very nice. It has a complete set of plum color seat
ENGINE COMPARTMENT: Big 425 makes an impressive 385 hp and 475 lbs
of torque. It looks like it's a very well maintained motor
compartment. The motor is spotless, looks like it's been apart. It
still has the dual snorkel air cleaner and original valve covers.
It features factory air conditioning, power steering and power
brakes. The squirters are hooked up, wires are run neatly, new hood
insulation pad. Very clean and proper.
TRUNK COMPARTMENT: It is lined with gray felt. It has a matching
chrome wheel spare. The complete jack assembly is all mounted
properly including the lug wrench. Bottom of the trunk lid and the
jamb are glossy paint. The weather strip looks new.
UNDERSIDE: Whats different? It's a front wheel drive! There is no
driveshaft so the floor is flat. It is very clean original. The
floors are rock solid, never even been spray painted over. It still
has original spiral shocks. The components are clean. Big finned
drum brakes, e-brake is hooked up. Bottom of the motor is clean,
not greasy. Rebuilt starter. Unique Hydra-Matic trans is the
original. The 1966 tag is still riveted to the side of it. Dual
exhaust goes into a transverse muffler and exits through the rear
I really like this car! The honest, unabused condition is
impressive. Now that I've taken the time to learn a little more
about these cars I really appreciate them. The features, body style
and innovation really make this a special car. Love the colors
I, Jay Grams, take pride in personally writing the descriptions for

professional impression of the vehicle.
Our salesmen are happy to assist with descriptions and making sure
