1966 Caprice 396
4-door Hardtop


An amazing survivor sold new at “Richardson Chevrolet” in Sandy, Oregon which later became “Carlson Chevrolet” and is currently “Suburban Chevrolet”.

Mrs. Jean Alt purchased the car on April 8, 1966. The salesman was Mr. Duey Barber. When she passed away the car hadapproximately 2,800 miles on it.

The car then went to a nephew in Sandy who owned the local bank and kept the car in storage until about 1993 when it was sold back to the same dealership where it was bought new and became “Carlson Chevrolet”. Pete Carlson kept the car about 10 years until he passed away in 2003. His son, Jerry, sold the car to “Suburban Chevrolet” and once again the Caprice was back at the same location where it was sold new.

This car is 100% numbers matching and is documented with the original Protect-O-Plate and includes the original dealership packet with owner’s manual and accessory brochure.
