Description: Selling my 1966 Coupe daily driver. I've done tons of work to this car over the years, with most of the drivetrain work being finished in the last few months. I recently dropped in a newly rebuilt T5 and a rebuilt 302 engine. This car is my daily commuter and is a great driver.
Originally purchased in San Diego, this has been a CA car all it's life up until four months ago when I brought it to the East coast for a military PCS move. There is only very minor rust in the typical spots. No major rot issues that affect the structure itself. Worst spot is the cowl that does leak if a bunch of water is poured down it.
Paint was done by previous owner sometime in 2005 timeframe. I'd call it a 8.5/10. It's nice driver quality. Not show quality.
