Evolve Motors is pleased to present our client's 1966 Cadillac Calais Coupe
What began as a loaded 1966 Calais coupe has since been transformed to look and behave more like a Coupe De Ville. This '66 Calais was originally optioned with power windows and AC which make it rather unique. You dont often see the power window and AC option because that is pretty much what set it apart form the De Ville models, other than leather seats. So to make up for the shortcomings of this solid '66 the previous owner went ahead and made some nice upgrades which included a leather interior to make it just like a Coupe De Ville. Repainted and re-worked sometime in the last 10 years this car really shows nicely
The body is nice and straight and only has a few blemishes. We note the left front fender has a light impact on the leading edge possibly from turning a tight corner in a garage. The paint work looks good and we give it a B in paint quality. The panels are straight and show some light dings here and there. The paint itself looks pretty good and consistent. We detect a couple minor paint runs here and there but nothing of concern. We also not some minor rubber moulding drying but it is consistent with the overall quality and shows nicely. The rockers, quarters and fenders all show rust free. The door panels, trunk, and hood all show nicely and line up as good as you could expect on a '66 caddy. The trim, bezels, chrome, lights, and glass all show nicely throughout. The wheels leave a little left to be desired and are poor representation for this caddy. They would be the first thing to go if I was to own the car. We believe these wheels were put on as an afterthought as the car would look a lot better with a nicer wheel and tire package. The underside looks nice and solid as you can see in the pictures. This car is a great driver and really looks sexy cruising down the road
Inward, the interior has been redone in leather. The seats look fantastic and really show minimal wear leaving us to believe that they were recently redone. The dash looks nice and complete and shows good patina. There is minor wear noted on parts like the steering wheel and other hardware. Overall it shows very nicely. This car was originally optioned with Power Windows which was a rare option on the Calais coupe. The AC system is present however it will need to be serviced (the pump turn smoothly however we assume it is down on refrigerant). The interior is SMOKE-FREE. The headliner looks good, as do the carpets, switches, handles, etc…. The seat belts were left in their original sandalwood color and look a little out of place over the black leather. The trunk is nice and dry and the carpets look clean and stain free. You cannot help but appreciate the interior on this Caddy
Under the hood sits what we believe to be the original 429 CID V8 with all her standard features. The car was stored in a garage for a number of years and while it was started regularly we do recommend servicing it before putting it on a road trip. Under the hood looks complete and functional however we do note that the choke assembly has been removed from the carburetor. Backing the 429 CID is an automatic transmission which shifts in and out of gear nicely at stop and get
