Year:

  1966

 

Seven  Hills Motorcars is proud to offer this beautiful 1966 Chevelle in fantastic condition and priced to sell. This car has received what I would call a "frame on" restoration. It has all new paint, completely new interior, overhauled suspension and steering, and a freshly rebuilt 350ci that runs like a top. This is an excellent combination with the 4-Speed manual transmission. This Chevelle looks great and is an awesome driver. There is no way at all that a car could be reproduced for anything close to our asking price. Prior to the restoration this was a nice car and still only has 74,740 original miles. This is an excellent opportunity to own a classic Chevelle that is ready to be used and enjoyed at an unbeatable value. One could easily buy this car now and sell it for more than the purchase price in years to come. This Chevelle is finished in the beautiful and desirable color combination of Ermine White over Medium Blue interior. Please peruse all of the photos, video, and information below to get a true sense of how clean and nice this Chevelle really is.

As a side note, this Chevelle is not a dealer auction vehicle. We hand pick each car after careful inspection. Our classics come from owners who expect their cars to go to someone that will give the vehicle the same care and attention as they did. We invite and encourage you to examine the car in person or have the car inspected. Please take the time to scrutinize each picture. We photograph each vehicle to the greatest extent so you can feel confident about your purchase. If you have a question about the Chevelle, just give us a call.

Exterior

The Ermine White exterior is in excellent driver condition. As one can see in the photos the finish has dazzling gloss and deep shine. The chrome bumpers and other brightwork spectacular with no rust or pitting at all. The aftermarket wheels really ad to the look of the car and are in like new condition with a brilliant finish and absolutely no burb rash. The car even still have 4 original T-3 headlamps. This is not a totally perfect paintjob and there are some small imperfections, but is is great driver quality and there is nothing that is really noticeable from even five feet away. As one can see in the many photos of the underside of the car, this Chevelle is very nice, even underneath, and totally solid with absolutely no rust issues. We have included specific photos below of the areas in the car most prone to rust to show how clean it is.

This Chevelle looks just as good in person as it does in the photos.

Interior

The Medium Blue interior of this Chevelle looks truly splendid and is almost completely brand new. The seats are in excellent condition with no split seams, holes, or signs of excessive wear. The carpet is also in almost new condition with no stains or holes. On the column is a "Moon Eye" half sweep tachometer that looks super cool and period correct. The original dash metal has been painted in the correct color and the dash pad is as new with no cracks or sun damage. The rear panels and door panels look brand new as, and both door pulls are solid and in tact. The headliner is in great shape with no sagging at all. The package tray looks good and is not faded or warped. All interior plastics and in good factory condition, are not chalky or brittle, and have good color and finish. The trunk is finished and trimmed out very well and looks marvelous. The spare tire, jack, and jack base are still with the car.

The interior looks just as good in person as it does in the photos.


Mechanical

This Chevelle is in to be in very good mechanical condition. We have put about XXX30 miles on the car during our ownership and in that time the car has run great with no issues and has been completely reliable. In the video below one can see the car accelerating on the highway up to about 70mph, shifting thought all the gears, braking to stoplight, accelerating away, and going through some curves. Please note that it shifts properly, there are no strange vibrations, and the car performs quite well overall. The car is an nice driver that feels great on the road and at highway speeds for a 50 year old car. The car does not pop out of gear and the clutch feels good. There is no smoke when starting or driving the car. It starts right away every time, idles well, and runs great. The brakes are responsive and do not pull to one side or the other, please keep in mind that these are manual drum brakes so they will not feel the same as a modern car. Also, the engine bay is very clean and highly detailed as one can see from the photos.

The previous owner did a lot of mechanical work to the car. The suspension has been refreshed with all new springs, new shocks, tie rod ends. The steering box is brand new. The engine was rebuilt be a speed shop in Northern Kentucky and is very potent with plenty of power; it really runs awesome. The wipers work as do all the exterior lights, indicators, and blower for the heater on two speeds, the temp control lever feels a bit finicky. The speedometer, odometer, temperature, oil pressure, and fuel gauges all work as they should. The horn does not work and these is an occasional noise from the transmission. This Chevelle features exhaust cutouts. They are a great addition and definitely get you noticed pulling into the cruise in. Their operation can be observed and hear in the video below. This Chevy has massive and not enough can be said as to how much of a pleasure it is to drive this car.


Overall Condition

 

Overall, this 1966 Chevelle is in marvelous condition and is a true bargain at our asking price. It is a great value and will only appreciate over time. There is no way someone could restore a similar car to this level for anything near our asking price. This Chevelle turns heads and gets tons of attention wherever it goes. The value of these cars has gone up exponentially in recent years. They are all solid investments for a collector or the average enthusiast. One could easily enjoy this vehicle for several years and sell it for more than the purchase price with minimal effort.

 

Thank you for looking and please do not hesitate to email or call with any questions.
