    A very nice '66 ya got there. I guess since the car was found in California, you are also in California? Looks like mostly original paint that could be repaired and then buffed out. Looks like yer gonna need the unobtainium front turn signal lenses. What happened to the hood ornament and some of the 'CHRYSLER' letters at the front of the hood? Have you got a photo of the build tag and more pictures? And WELCOME TO FCBO! We need a few more '66s here.

    What part of California are you in? The Spring Fling at Woodley park is coming up in April if you need parts you sure timed your purchase well Lol!!!

    The swap meets been pretty okay last couple years. Lots of C body stuff.

    Nice find !
