Car description

this chevelle you see listed here has one of the best bodies ive ever seen on a 66 chevelle.most by now have been all replacement paneled and rebuilt.it still retains all its original sheetmetal it was born with.including floors,quarters,rockers,trunk,ect.....maybe another reason is its a low owner,with only 81,000 actual miles.somes going to say how can you tell that?for one thing looking at the pictures youll see that it has the original interior!minus the seat upholstery.i replaced it only because it had some stains from years of use....but im including it with the car.other than that its the original.just about every piece of the external trim,chrome and stainless is the originals,even the bumpers!..they luster about as nice as repo stuff..all glass is near perfect.this cars only had one repaint in its life.its very slick and nice,probably close to a 9.but there are a ding or two,and your typical small blemishes,but there so minut,they cant be picked up by a digital camera.still retains its t-3 headlights. engine & transmission has its occasional drip. a rare find is this is an original ermine white car with bright red interior.all body panels line up consistent,trunk,doors,hood,all open and close like a new 66! the valve covers and air cleaner are original style factory type chrome versions.........did i forget to mention its also a factory radio delete car too!....this chevelle has a nice list of options,they are as follows..................................................
A02-tinted windshield N10-dual exhaust U03-tri-volume horn
C10-opticlean bottle N34-sport style wheel U14-gauges &tachometer
J50-power brakes N40-power steering U25-trunk light
L30-327 4 barrell PW8-red line tires U26-underhood light
M35-automatic transmission P12-ralley wheels
this car runs & drives like a new 66 chevelle.it should,its not worn out with that low of miles.cars in this condition are getting harder & harder to find.and when you throw in nice options & rare color combinations its even more difficult........it seems like people are keeping the nicer cars now & not letting them go?....when was the last time you seen one like this show up on here?
this car is what i would consider a "preservation"...its not been what people use so loosely on here......restored.everybody says that,but you can tell there really not.this is a pretty much original car that has been kept to its roots.it has been HIGHLY detailed throughout!.....underneath,the under carriage is just as nice as what under the hood looks like!.......i noticed in the second picture i posted,theres what seems to be a spot on the side of the car?..its not.thats a reflection.nothing wrong with the paint.
as far as the average price range of 66 chevelles in this condition goes,the CPI black book is one that some major classic auction use.CPI doesnt list a catagory "1" listing.they only list catagory "2" & "3" listings.(class 1 cars are generally untouched survivors,nos restored,or 1000 point class judging cars)this car definately falls under the catagory "2" classification.in the book i have,is 6 months old, they have this car at $38,000.and thats not factoring in the low miles,options or nice color combination......these figures are actually gathered from actual auction sales & private trades......the reserve on this one is far from that.really alot lower....BUT PLEASE do not ask the reserve or a price to sell it before the auction ends.its not fair for everyone that might have an interest in it.if someone wants it,theyll have an equal chance like everyone bidding.
im a dealer dba hathcock auto sales & restoration.i dont sell junk.what you see is what you get.as like all vehicles this age,if your biddin, your accepting as-is,no warranty.expressed or implied.if you have to get permission from someone else to bid or purchase,then do that first.and PLEASE only bid if you already have funds on hand.im not going to wait on a loan to be approved or an appraisle to be completed.this not only waste my time,but it takes away someone elses chance to get the car they really want.......there is no deposit....BUT, within 3 days,full payment will be required!if no, it will be offered to next highest bidder.i have to this because im not always redidly available at times.im firm on these terms.i have to be because of a few bad apples.......do your due-diligence before bidding.sometimes used & older vehicles have faults of their own,seen & un-foreseen.some un-foreseen things could exist that are or were not known to past and or present owners & buyers & sellers.all statements listed here in this listing are based on opinion.upon winning bid your acknowledging youve read & understand the info stated here.your also relieving the seller blameless of info contained or ommited.you have to list this stuff because theyre some people out there will think your responsible for knowing or should know the whole life of a car since it was new,which i dont......i have a good friend that is a dispatcher at a major tansport co......he can usually get cars moved in the average of .040 to .060 cents a mile,thats cheap.
this is a real nice car.im sure whoever ends up with it will be well pleased...its not perfect by no means,but compared to whats mostly being sold out there for big money is un-comparable...............i started to not bring up about the age of this cars paint?i wanted the pictures to show how nice it is.i know its hard to believe,but the paint on this car is 32 years old.its laquer.back before they got rid of it.that will tell you why im calling this car a "preservation".you dont have to worry about fresh paint doing crazy stuff a year after you own it,like some high dollar cars listed on here right now...by the way,in my opinion,the paint looks better than what you can see in the pictures,plus its nice and straight down the sides of the car.
