1966 Chevrolet Caprice Series

The Chevy Caprice name was introduced in mid-1965 as a luxury trim package for the Impala four-door hardtop. A year later, it became its own model line consisting of a 4-door hardtop, a coupe, and a 6- or 9-passenger station wagon. The Custom Coupe had a formal roofline while the station wagons had special wood-grained body-side trim. The four-door hardtop Sport Sedan had a bench seat in the front with a Strat-back front seat being offered as optional equipment. The interior was done in plush cloth. Vinyl or cloth was available in the two-door coupes while the station wagons were given all-vinyl interiors.

On the exterior, the Caprice had its nameplate on the front fender and deck. There were wraparound tail lamps with bright horizontal ribs, Caprice wheel covers, roof rear quarter emblems, and wide ribbed body sill moldings.

Power was from an overhead valve V8 engine displacing 283 cubic inches and offering nearly 195 horsepower. An optional 396 CID V8 brought horsepower to an impressive 325 BHP.
