If you're in the market for a clean and honest 1966 Caprice for a cruiser, your search is over! Though this car is not 100% original, it is what it looks like and is the ideal candidate for an unmodified weekend vehicle.
The 1966 Caprice is a beautiful car by design, and this example gets prettier and prettier the longer you look at it! This car is a nice, honest car that is sure to fit all of your cruising needs. The bronze paint is flattering on the body, and eye-catching while not being flashy. The car was repainted long ago, somewhere in the 20-30 year range. When it was repainted, a new vinyl top was installed to match the fresh look of the new paint. The paint looks great for its age! The vinyl top Is also in excellent condition. The car is currently owned by the original owner, though it was sold amongst family members a time or two before it returned to him. The car has been garaged since new except for a one-year hiatus.
Perhaps the most amazing part of this Caprice is the interior. Everything is in excellent shape, showing little to no wear. The headliner is immaculate! The best part is, the interior is all original and has not been restored at all. A discerning buyer could not ask for a nicer, original interior. It really proves the care this car has received. This is a factory A/C car, and the compressor will hold a charge from spring to summer to give you plenty of cooled down cruising! Additionally, the owner has had the trunk repainted and a new trunk mat is in place.
Under the hood is just as clean as the rest of the car! The engine and engine bay have been painted and detailed. The engine bay is clean and complete, and looks just the way it should for a car in this condition. The 327 V8 engine runs great, and this is simply a smooth driving car. Though the engine is smooth and quiet, the exhaust sounds great (but not too loud!).
This is a wonderful Caprice! Inside and out, it is the cruiser you've been searching for. This is a really nice example showing the result of years of love and care! It is a comfortable classic that is missing nothing—truly a gorgeous car. Included with the sale are the original 14 inch wheels and wire wheel covers, which the owner changed out for 15 inch rally wheels to have more tire options. Additionally, a set of NOS tail lights is included as bonus spare parts! If a '66 Caprice is what you're after, you've arrived at your final destination.
