This should set a ebay record for a 66.

I don't know, John. Nice car, but the wheels/tires and stance don't do anything for me. May turn off other buyers too. The 60's Chevy bucket seats don't look right in the car. Lots of changes to the engine. I would doubt the 15,000 original mile claim. I'd own it in a minute, but I don't think it will bid to the $20,000 that the blue 4 speed one did a month or so ago.

Makes you wonder about speedo accuracy when the photo shows it at 20+ mph. I would assume that the photo was taken static.

Live your dreams!

I can't believe someone would buy (order?) a car like this without BU lites. Looks weird with nothing at the ends of those rear panel mouldings.[:I]

I'm with Dick on this one - pretty car overall, but there's just something about it that don't smell right.[}:)][}:)]

Miscreant at large.

By the looks of the speedometer/odometer shot, I would be highly suspect of any mileage claims that aren't fully documented. The car is so modified, I don't think that the claimed mileage matters. I don't have anything against the modifications, but it is usually stock cars where mileage counts. He doesn't even mention power disc brakes.
