BF Classified: 1966 Chevrolet Caprice Coupe

Seller’s Description: 1966 Chevrolet Caprice Sport Coupe- VIN 166476C120253- 1966 was the first year as a separate model for the Caprice. The Caprice was introduced in mid-1965 as an upgrade package of a few hundred dollars over the Impala. 1966 was the first year for the Hardtop Coupe and featured the “formal” roofline.

This particular Caprice was built in the Southgate, California plant, purchased new in the LA-area of California, and resided there with the original owner until sold and was reportedly driven east in 2006. It still retains its original Lemonwood Yellow paint, original black vinyl top and pinstripe, and original black Caprice fabric interior. It has only been driven 51,000 miles (title reads exempt) and still wears the original California black license tags with the rear tag frame from the original selling dealer. It is powered by the original 327 ci, 275HP V-8, and Powerglide automatic transmission. Other accessories include hazard warning lights, Power Steering, tilt steering column, dual exhaust, Soft Ray tinted glass, original “Bow Tie” accessory floor mats, AM-FM radio with rear-mounted antenna, factory wire wheel covers (replaced the factory “mag”-style wheel covers, but they are available instead of the wires), dual exhaust, and OEM-style BF Goodrich Silvertown whitewall tires likely from Coker. The trunk compartment retains its original splatter paint as well as the original spare tires and tools. The original window sticker, books, Protect-O-Plate, and California registrations are provided with the purchase of this car, as well as the original numbered keys. Four vintage road maps were found in the glove box and they go with the purchase as well. There is a “smudge” in the original paint on the hood about 8″ square. Looks like someone spilled something on it sometime. Not bad at all, but it’s there. Ashtray appears unused. This is a well-preserved time capsule from 1966 and it is indeed rare to find a vintage car like this in this condition.
