'66 ss

Hello All:

I'm interested in this Chevelle and am wondering what the experts can tell me?



I realize it doesn't have the OEM engine and trans, or bench seat. And they've added the power discs, third brake light, etc. I'm not necessarily looking for a 'survivor' type car -- more of a driver in really nice condition.

How's the value @ $45K?

And is there anybody recommended who could look at it for me? (Bit of a drive from San Diego... )

Thanks in advance,

Mark

It isn't too far from me, never heard of that place. I'm by no means an expert, and have no ideas of values, but I can possibly look at it and get a feel for the car.

That would be great! From the photos it looks very nice, but they can certainly be deceiving.

Tried to find some online reviews on the dealer -- they have a 'store' in FL as well; very few and somewhat mixed.

So, what's the customary practice when someone goes to look at a car for someone else? Monetary compensation? Beer? A thank-you? I've read a couple of posts of folks doing that for others and am wondering what is typically done in return.

Thanks,

Mark

It sure looks nice in all the pictures. Naturally Dealers price is always high.

Re: '66 ss

IMO it does look like a nice car but does have a few things that are incorrect but in all depends on what your looking for. For me and a lot the auto holds it back about 5k from 4 speed cars. If it is as nice as it looks I would be interested in it for high twenties to low thirties.

Severely fluffed and pXXX poor work throughout. No way is that a $45k '66.

I agree

There are a lot of things on that car that are wrong for a '66 SS, and if I were to dish out 45K for a '66 SS; It would have to be a correct SS.

If I had 45K to spend on a "driver in really nice condition" - I would expect to receive more value than what that car offers.

Re: '66 ss

Is this dealer associated with Frank Arrone? If Frank is involved I would stay 15 or 20 Miles away. Call and ask if Frank Arrone painted it or worked on it ? I was in Homer City last Saturday.

Re: '66 ss

Thanks for the feedback.

Curious what types of things are ‘wrong’ on this car? I know it’s NOM, the TH400 isn’t correct, the trim tag indicates an original bench seat car, and the stereo, 3rd brake light, gauges are not original.

What other things can you guys spot? Trying to get educated so I know what to look for and not make a costly mistake.

Thanks.

Those cars just arent bringing that kind of money any more. 30s pushing things.

Purists will always find things wrong with Chevelle's…

A show quality paintjob these days costs $20-$25K, add in all the other costs for restoring a car, and you surpass $45K rather quickly.

well they forgot a lot of things like the correct rocker moldings on the quarters, missing the seat emblems, door panel emblem. they got cheap with the pulley setup and power steering, and the lower grille panel is painted wrong. seems like a small list but its all cheap and makes you wonder what else. but kuddios to them for having the head light extensions painted correct
