This 1966 Chevelle SS Tribute Car that spent most of its life in Texas and AZ. Recently it was transported to Illinois, and has spent the past few years stored in a garage near Galina, IL. It has a nice running 396 engine and auto trans. From what I have been tol, that from the mid 70's, to the mid 2000's it was used as a hobby weekend drag car in Texas. It then made its way to Siera Vista, AZ where went through some minor resto, paint, etc. I purchased in 2014 where it spent a year, before I transported it up to N Illinois for my Nephew. He drove it maybe 3 times, and it has sat in a garage near Galina, Il. I have recently taken the car, and have had a mechanic friend get it back in running, driving and stopping condition. He has gone through the carb, but a rebuilt "quick ratio" steering box, new brake calipers, adjust the shifter linkage, new battery etc... The engine does sound amazing. ( See videos on YouTube, search "dwninphx). I was told by the previous owner, that the turbo 400 was rebuilt, but I can't guarantee it. This car still will need tinkering, and little thinks to make it the way you want. One thing I believe it will need is a turn signal switch. The brake lights aren't working right now. I just notice it, and have not looked into it.
It is a decent looking car, but is not perfect. Being a black car, I think it could have benefitted from more block sanding before paint. Also, it has the notorious back window leak that needs attention. Since I did not own the car when it was being painted, I don't know what is under the paint. There is a clean dent on the passenger fender that appeared while in storage. Looks like it could be repaired with a good "paintless dent repair" guy.
Interior isn't perfect, but is very presentable.
The car is factory a/c car with all components in place. ( Along with a new condenser in the trunk) There is also NOS wheel well trim located in the trunk.
THIS CAR IS NOT A FACTORY SS CAR. Obviously it is NOT a numbers matching car. I believe this car came from the factory with a small block and 4 speed manual trans.
I think I have included all the pertinent information that I know about this car. There my be other issues that I am not aware of
Please don't ask me if you can drive this car 1000 miles back home. Again, this car should be gone over before it is considered a dependable driver. It WILL easily drive up on a trailer for shipping.
