Hi guys, I've just recently gotten a 66 caprice, that appears to be an original big block car but would like to find out from you guys what do you look for to confirm it?
I got this car very cheap so its a keeper either way!
It doesn't have the original engine in it, so that isn't of any help.
If seen from past posts some items are clues such as 3/8 fuel lines, thicker front springs, and stabilizer bar.
My questions are, how thick is thicker?
And is the fuel line 3/8 I.D. or O.D ?
Are there other things that can point me in the right direction?
I'm pretty convinced it was a big block car, as it has a small block in it now, and the front still sits very high, it also has the 12 bolt, but I forgot to look at the trans while I was there.
Also can you decode the tags for me?
VIN is 166476L148664
The trim tag is:
GT 66-16647-LOS 6526 Body
TR-857A T-T paint
Thanks in advance for the help !
