Some cars in their lifetimes under go all sorts of transformations, or hack jobs, but thankfully, this ’66 Chevelle has only seen a drivetrain transformation. With a survivor like appearance, this Chevelle has an alluring look, and would make for a great car to drive and restore at the same time. With 5 days remaining, bidding has reached $3,950 with the reserve not met. Find it here on eBay out of Yakima, Washington.
Beneath the teal hood lies the heartbeat of America. A Chevrolet 350, with a 350 turbo transmission mated to a Ford 9 inch rear. Better prepared for the strip with more power, and a heavy duty axle, this Chevelle looks like it would be a fun project. Although hopefully you have strong legs as this car has manual brakes. The engine is painted and shows little rust, but it has stock style manifolds on it. There are no specs on the engine, so I assume it to be dressed up, and not really “tuned” up. The engine bay is in nice condition with only a few minor areas with some rust. This engine bay could be detailed and touched up yielding an excellent appearance.
A bit of a sleeper, this Chevy appears to be completely stock from the exterior. The paint is mostly there, but there is a chipped area on the passenger door. The rear wheel arch on the passenger side has some rust, but it is small area, so you could likely get away with it like that for a few years, if used as a fair weather cruiser. I would be willing to bet that the paint could be buffed, giving a nice look, and the interior could be spruced up as well. The front seats are split, and there is no headliner, but those are items that could be worked on while enjoying the car. With solid floors, and the seller claiming it can be driven across country, would you jump in this teal Chevelle?
