1966 Chevrolet Caprice



1966 Chevrolet Caprice Coupe

This is my 1966 Chevrolet Caprice Coupe. It sports a 385 CI small block stroker (350 bored 0.040 over with a 400 crank) and a Muncie M-22 "Rock Crusher" 4 speed transmision. I am currently transforming this car into a pro-touring type vehicle with a 4 wheel power disc brake conversion, 2 inch drop in the front and a suspension upgrade to include a complete front end rebuild (planned). This car was frame off restored some time ago, I was given two old photos from that that hopefully I can scan and get up here at some point.
