For Sale: 1966 Chevrolet Caprice in Volo, Illinois

Vehicle Description

Stunning good looks! To top it off it's a real #s matching 396 car with factory air conditioning. This is the original color too. It had a body off the frame restoration. The Caprice was the top of the line Chevy in 1966 and I can't imagine a better one than this. I knew when I seen this one I was buying it no matter what.

EXTERIOR: What a great looker. Not only the colors but the wheels are a perfect compliment too. The body is laser beam straight, all the gaps are square and flush. I don't see any rust or damage. The metal flake is laid out evenly and the clear coat is polished to a smooth high gloss finish. The new bright white vinyl top really gives it some pop. It has a modern version of the rally wheel. They are 18 inch billet, extra wide in back with performance tires. Up front the bumper is rechromed, the trim and grill are excellent. It has 4 T-3 headlamps. The emblems, door handles, bowtie mirrors were replaced. The moldings are straight and shiny. In back the bumper is rechromed, the taillights are original. The glass is crystal clear all around. The door jambs are painted real nice, the weather strips have been replaced.

INTERIOR: Down on the floor the carpet has been replaced and it has reproduction rubber mats. It's has the full set of deluxe seatbelts. The reupholstered bucket seats have a full center console in between them with the stacked gauges. In front of me is a clean original dash area that is not cut up or broken. It has an original AM-FM radio and there's quartz movement in the clock. There's a little bit of wear on the steering wheel. The glove box has the pouch with the manuals. Overhead is a tight fitting headliner in excellent shape and matching visors. The rear seat is excellent, the door panels and armrests have been replaced.

ENGINE COMPARTMENT: This has it's original 396-325 horsepower big block motor that it was born with. Unique H code which came from the factory with a Holley intake and carburetor. It's detailed to factory condition: stock air cleaner, valve covers, exhaust manifolds etc. New Holley carb. Features include power steering and brakes. Also factory air conditioning that has been serviced and updated with 134 freon, it blows cold. The brake booster is new. It has spring clamp battery cables, hood insulation and the washers are hooked up. It even has the glass bottle with washer fluid concentrate. Everything is painted up real nice and neat. New battery.

TRUNK COMPARTMENT: Nice looking finished trunk compartment. Rock solid floor, neatly painted with a gray spatter finish. It has a carpet mat and the cardboard filler panels on the sides. The spare tire has never been used, it's on a black rim. It has the complete jack assembly. Bottom of the trunk lid and the jamb are painted glossy blue.

UNDERSIDE: The body was off the frame for a complete restoration. The floors are immaculate and have been prepped and painted glossy. The front end has been completely apart and rebuilt. It was just given 4 new springs to raise it to the stock height. Replaced bushings, ball joints, steering components, etc. The rear suspension also received new bushings and shocks. Looking up at the motor it's immaculate. It has the correct screw on canister oil filter, rebuilt starter and a new flywheel cover. It has it's original Turbo 400 automatic, the tag is dated 1966. U joints were replaced. It has it's original 12 bolt rear end with a highway gear. Custom dual exhaust with Flowmaster mufflers and turn down tips.

I love this car. The entire package makes this one very special. Others don't even compare.
