Chevrolet Caprice 454 V8 1966

General description : Description
We love a car like this 1966 Chevrolet Caprice because it's a range-topping classic Chevy that retains a ton of vintage personality. And with plenty of big block power under the hood, this premium hardtop is ready cruise the boulevard.
This first-year Caprice coupe is the start of something very special. Chevy gave the Caprice name to the top trim full-size sedan in '65, and it proved so popular that they decided to add a unique pillarless coupe the next year - and we all know the hardtops are the coolest coupes to come out of the '60s. The roofline is unique to the Caprice, and it looks quite regal. Being the top-level Chevrolet also meant not skipping out on chrome anywhere. Caprices added brightwork over the Impala up front, and there's no missing those cool tail lamps with wraparound bright ribbing. The overall presentation is not perfect. The paint and chrome could use an investment if you wanted to go from a street machine style to high-gloss chic hardtop. But when a significant classic is also this complete, it just takes time and effort to get to the prime spot at the car show.
The interior is another place that has the classic look we absolutely love. The tones of light blue harmonizes with the exterior dark blue, and it has an absolutely vintage look, right down to the button-top presentation on the seats. A full-size coupe means plenty of room for family and friends, but the fold-down armrest across the front bench is a reminder that the driver is always king. This really has the right level of classic cool, including plenty of wood-like trim. This is a factory A/C car, and the controls are in place, but it will need more work to return full system. Even the upgrades are quite vintage, like the AM/FM stereo with 8-track. In fact, the only modern update you may spot is the cleanly installed AutoMeter auxiliary gauge trio. They signal there's something extra special under the hood.
The fender callouts tell you there's big block power in this Chevelle, and the engine bay doesn't disappoint. This V8 looks like it's radiating power with its bold orange presentation and plenty of polish on the air grabber and valve covers. While the fenders say 396, it's actually running a LARGER 454 cubic-inch motor. The consignor states that this was built by a speed shop a few years back, and the way it runs string today reaffirms the idea that there have been investments in quality. Everything you want, including a four-barrel carburetor, large aluminum radiator, and a nicely tuned dual exhaust. This Caprice lives up to its easy cruising nature with features like the three-speed automatic transmission, power steering, power brakes, and wide BF Goodrich T/As.
Here's a very cool classic with a strong big block that's ready to hit the road. So if you love history, distinction, and power, don't miss this hardtop. Call now!

About Chevrolet
Chevrolet aka Chevy, founded in 1911 by Louis Chevrolet and William C. Durant is the best selling and biggest brand by General Motors -mainly due to low pricing.

No wonder Chevy the "working man's car" has become such an iconic part of Americana in films and pop-culture.

When talking about Chevy one must not ignore Chevrolet small-block V8 the world's most produced engine that has been in production since 1955 and still going strong.

Surprisingly, "America's only sports car" Corvette was introduced under Chevrolet brand rather than its own. To us the most memorable Corvette has to be The second generation (C2) Corvette, Sting Ray.

To compete with VW Beatle Chevrolet introduced Corvair a compact automobile built in 1960–1969 It was the only American designed, mass-produced passenger car to feature a rear-mounted air-cooled engine. Corvair handling was deemed notoriously bad mainly due to Ralph Nader's Unsafe at Any Speed. Although, any handling issues were soon solved the reputation did stick.

With Pony / Muscle car mania taking over the Americans, following the introduction of Ford Mustang, Chevrolet came up with one of its most famous models Camaro. During the first year alone they managed to sell 220,906 Camaros.
