1966 SS Convertible - All Original

Hey guys, might have a chance to snatch this up, have very limited info on this car.

1966 Chevelle, SS
Auto
Factory AC
Interior in good shape minus driver seat
Parked since 1978
60-70k miles
396, unsure on hp

what do you think numbers are worth? Car hasn't been ran since 78. Guessing drive train will need to be gone through.

What can this bring
1) as is (so I dont over pay)
2) just cleaned up/running
3) repainted

will give more pics as I get them

That looks like a real gem! If that is a true numbers, survivor car then I would jump through hoops to get it. Need more pics and numbers to say how much $ in my opinion.

Re: 1966 SS Convertible - All Original

as is 15-20K if real #s matching with AC in running and driving I would say mid 50's restored in the 60's. but for those prices the car will need done right.

I'm not sure what it's worth, but if you are planning on flipping it just clean it up, get it running then sell it. The paint looks half way decent, since interest in "survivors" is hot right now why limit your pool of potential buyers by painting it.

I think Keith's estimate is dead on. Nice car.

Re: 1966 SS Convertible - All Original

92K original miles
Last run in 91
Confirmed #s match
396/325HP
Factory A/C
12 bolt rear
Power antenna
Rust free underneath (a couple spots on body panels)
Original paint
Top in excellent condition

Woke her up from a 25 year slumber this weekend. Tires held air, rolled easily. She will clean up nicely and be an awesome (not perfect) survivor. Feel free to float any questions through PM - I'd like to get her back up to snuff but have a couple projects in front so considering selling.

So tell us the story. How did you find this thing? I'm sure that's as interesting as the car itself.

Gotcha - I assume block, trans, and diff? Any others? I thought I had read the carb had a date stamp that was relevant? Can you direct me where the markings might be? I'm not a Chevelle expert... actually this is my first ever Chevrolet!

It's a bittersweet story - my buddy's dad passed away unexpectedly. He had about 40 cars - some great project plans for his retirement. I had known about and seen most of the cars over the past 25 years, but had only heard about this one until a couple months ago. There is a thread here with lots of photos of the other cars.

Re: 1966 SS Convertible - All Original

I remember your original post now! Yes, sad situation for sure. This '66 looks like the big winner out of the entire collection.

Re: 1966 SS Convertible - All Original

I am not familiar with the earlier engine stamps and I'm curious about the vin stamp. Did they all look like that in 1966?

Re: 1966 SS Convertible - All Original

why at the very top posting is 2fast4u66 claiming discovery and requesting its value when apparently -glide- has control of the deal?

I'm no expert but looks consistent with the other examples I have found. Two EKH stamps HERE.

I used to work with 2fast - he is a 66 expert and fanatic. I effectively gave him first right of refusal on the deal and texted him the photo he posted when I pulled the car out a couple weeks ago. (He had seen first round of pics also/knows the history) I would probably value his opinion on WIW most, but I don't think he wants to pay that! It doesn't sound like he's interested so I updated the thread.

Car is now posted in the Classifieds. I can't give it away - it's an awesome car with some personal history + likely the best project I'll ever run across. It's worth $35K to me right now.
