Streetside Classics - Nashville
6000 Reliance Dr
A first-year 1966 Chevrolet Caprice is already an attractive classic. But when you add a great triple-black look, comfy A/C interior, and upgraded big block power, then you know you're looking at an irresistible hardtop classic.
The model year alone makes this one special to those who love Chevys. It was the debut of the Caprice coupe. It took the top spot in the Impala lineup by utilizing its full-size lines, and giving it an exclusive and more formal hardtop design. So it's great to have this special roof highlighted on this example by the premium vinyl top. But you were attracted to this one for more than just its history. This coupe was updated later in life with sleek black paint that still shows quite well today. It makes for a nice contrast for the form-fitting chrome bumpers and full trim package to contrast nicely. And the addition of 20-inch Ridler wheels adds to the shine while letting you know this is an upgraded machine.
The black interior joins the exterior paint and vinyl roof to deliver an ultra-desirable triple-black presentation. As a full-size premium coupe, these were about offering plenty of style. It retains vintage quality feeling in everything from the wood-like trim on the dash, to the button-top velour inserts in the seats. This has the kind of size to comfortably take along plenty of family and friends. So it's nice to keep them all happy with upgrades like an AM/FM/cassette stereo with digital tuner and cold-blowing R134a air conditioning. And as you slip behind the upgraded steering wheel on the tilt column, you also know the driver will always have the best time in in this Caprice.
There's a tidy and attractive look under the hood with the red block radiating from within the dark engine bay. And there are nice details, like how the etched valve covers coordinate with the air topper. But what you'll like best about this package is that it's delivering proper big block power. The 402 cubic-inch LS3 V8 has an Edelbrock four-barrel carburetor, Edelbrock intake, HEI ignition, and long tube headers feeding the dual exhaust. It fires up easily, and the TH400 three-speed automatic transmission shifts smoothly. It feels good on the road thanks to features like newer front bushings, power steering, power brakes, and the grip of modern ZR-rated tires.
Complete with owner's manual, this is the first-year Caprice done with a cool triple-black look and all the features you want. So you know an ideal hardtop like this won't stay around for long. Call today!!!
