One of only 13,000 made in 1966, this Starfire coupe features the 425 cu in V8 (claimed original to the car), married to a three-speed automatic transmission. Only two previous owners and 105K miles on the clock. The big engine starts right up and runs smoothly; no smoke or odd noises. Power steering and power brakes, but crank windows. The interior was partially restored, with new red carpeting/floor mats and beautiful red vinyl seat covers. (Note that the original owner ordered this Starfire with the optional Strato bench seat instead of the buckets and console.) The dash and door panels were not re-done. The dash pad has two cracked areas but is overall very presentable, and the dashboard has never been cut up and sports all its original switchgear (including the radio). The carpeting on the lower door panels is faded (and hence does not match the new floor carpeting) and the silver vinyl in the center portions shows some delamination. The exterior is surprisingly clean and straight for a car of this vintage and given the acres off sheet metal. All the chrome trim is present and in good to very good condition (though the dual exhaust tips are rusty). The red paint is an older respray that has held up well; still has a shine after a good wash and wax. A few areas of surface rust are now bubbling through in the usual spots, but there doesnt seem to be major cancer under the paint. The frame and rockers appear to be solid, with only surface rust. Original owners manual and Protect-o-Plate. Drive as is to cruise nights, or freshen the exterior and engine bay to show-car quality.
