Picking up a '66 Coupe
I had a 1965 Coupe in high school, 200ci C4, hard to believe that's been 30 years ago.
So I've been looking for another ride with a 200 mainly because that's what I had, but also because they are generally a bit less expensive, Another good reason is that I make my living with my driver's license driving nearly 3000 miles a week for FedEx Freight. I don't really need the temptation of the extra hp!
Have been looking for probably 18 months, checking out CL ads, Facebook, etc when one day I take a different way back home while riding my bike. There is a white '66 coupe sitting in the driveway and the owner putting a car cover on.
So I stopped and talked with him, explained that I used to have a 65 coupe with the I-6 and was trying to find another. He said he was thinking about selling his'66 but hadn't listed it anywhere yet.
It's been 4 weeks now and we've come to agreement and I'll be getting it in about 10 days after he gets back from a vacation in Italy.
The crazy thing is we've lived about 0.4 miles from each other for 15 years, just about 3 blocks.
Looking forward to driving this '66 200ci with a 3spd manual this time!
Have a great one!
