Default Mick Price's (MPrice) Amazing 1966 SS Chevelle!

Hi Bruce,


We just recently finished a complete frame of resto on this original 375 horse 66 Chevelle. It was a rust free body so that made it much easier than most. It came with original pictures of the car, including the engine bay when new. I also have the original sales invoice and loan papers identifying it as an L78. Interior is all original except the carpet.

Thanks guys, I know there is a few minor details I have to take care of yet, one of which is the color of the alternator fan should obviously be flat black as you can see from the 1966 photos. I used the zinc because frankly I just think they look so much better that way. I do have another fan to switch it out just to be correct.
