This 1966 Chevrolet Caprice coupe reigns supreme with numbers-matching big block power and a long list of luxury options. It's the practical family classic cruiser that's also muscle car ready when it's time to have some real fun.
This first-year Caprice coupe was the start of something very special. Chevy gave the Caprice name to the top full-size sedan in '65, and it proved so popular that they decided to add a unique pillarless coupe the next year (and we all know the hardtops are the coolest coupes to come out of the '60s.) The squared-off roofline is unique to the Caprice, and it looks quite regal. Then again, everything is going to look good on a car with such nice sheetmetal. Plus, the factory-correct Lemonwood Yellow paint represents the decade perfectly. Being the top-level Chevrolet also meant not skipping out on chrome anywhere. Caprices have a special grille, and this one is mirror-like. And you can tell there has been a nice investment in the wraparound bumpers both front and rear. But there's much more to this coupe than just its classic presentation. The callouts on the fenders and the shining American Racing modern alloys let everyone know that this coupe is meant for more than just cruising.
The black interior showcases the coupe's dual luxury and performance attitude. It starts with a premium button-top presentation on both rows of seats that are padded for extra comfort. So there are plenty of family and friends who will feel comfy in this full-size coupe. The dual-spoke steering wheel and wood-like trim on the dash remind you this is a classic. But then you also have an upgraded full gauge package and retro-style AM/FM stereo w/Bluetooth that reminds you they have made the right investments in this one. And as Chevy's premium machine, we know you'll love the power windows. They mean you never have to leave the driver's seat to roll down all the windows and show off the pillarless hardtop profile. There are even provisions for air conditioning so you can enjoy this experience in the summertime, if desired.
One look under the hood, and you know those fender callouts were not lying. The dark engine bay funnels all your attention to the bold big block in the middle. And as you look at the belts, wires, hoses, and all the other details, it's apparent there was a nice investment here to make sure the motor was well-maintained and ready to showcase. Not only will you love showing off the 396 cubic-inch V8, but you'll also love telling people it's the numbers-matching motor. The big V8 inhales deeply with a proper Rochester Quadra-jet carb, and the dual exhaust makes a sweet sound. The undercarriage has a clean look that should give you confidence on the road. Plus, you have all the right easy cruising features, like the TH400 three-speed automatic transmission, power steering, and power brakes.
These Caprices were the wealthy man's muscle machine when new, but this loaded example is available right now at an everyman price. Don't miss out, call today!!!
