Caprice 1966

Title Status --
Exterior Color Lemonwood Yellow
Interior Color Black


This 1966 Chevrolet Caprice coupe reigned supreme when new with its range-topping style and road-owning size. And today this classic still continues to command attention for being an exceptionally preserved/presented hardtop with terrific paperwork.

Chevy fans know this is something very special. 1966 was the first year for the Caprice coupe. The name was introduced as the top option package for the Impala sedan the previous year, but then it was given its own unique styling as the new king of the full-size Chevys. The roofline is unique to the Caprice, and it looks quite regal. Then again, everything is going to look good on a car this straight. The coupe's Lemonwood Yellow is the factory-correct color, and it continues to have a nice gloss thanks to a proper investment later in life. And the sophistication of a taut black vinyl top and coordinating full-length black pinstripe is exactly what you want on a 1960s luxury machine. Being the top-level Chevrolet also meant not skipping out on chrome anywhere. Caprices added brightwork over the Impala up front, and there is no missing those cool tail lamps with wraparound bright ribbing. It has a true cruiser style, and we especially like the California license plate frames and front black plate. It helps tell the story we were told about how this spent its decades under its first owner in Los Angeles.

The upper-classic feeling continues inside. All the black accenting of the exterior set the tone for the full black interior. The seats, side panels, carpeting, headliner, and dash have the deep and dark look of a proper investment and/or exceptionally respected originality. And the smooth dark wood-like paneling on the dash and doors adds a proper warmth to the classic coupe feeling. The whole setup is for vintage lovers, right down to details, like the working dome lights, Delco AM/FM radio, and button-top presentation on the seats and doors. And the rarely seen tilt steering column also makes this a better cruiser. It's easy to show off the full classic style to the world just by rolling down all the windows on this pillarless hardtop.

The classic and correct presentation continues under the hood. The bold Chevy orange and vintage callouts draw your attention to the 327 cubic-inch V8, and this year-correct block is believed to be original to the car. Topped with a Quadrajet four-barrel carburetor, this is a stout powerhouse that makes the right torque to move this coupe with authority. Plus, the Powerglide automatic transmission and supple ride make for a good cruising package.

The sale comes complete with desirable paperwork like a reproduction window sticker, original warranty card, previous registrations, and the owner's manual packet. This is the cool and significant classic that remains a stylish vintage machine. Call today!!!
