I now have an Album posted and pics of Babe look identical to yours. They are twins for sure, although yours was not factory Blue, but it sure is a match for Babe.

About

1966 Chevrolet Bel Air 2 door Sedan. This car is equipped with a 454, 4 speed, 12 bolt posi, P/S & PDB. It drives & rides fantastic. It is (in my opion) very fast - All though I don't race it often, in 2006 I made a 12.88 @ 107 MPH pass on street tires with closed exhaust.

In a nutshell, everything on this car is either new or recently rebuilt - see the "Specs" tab for all of the details. If the component was rebuilt, it was thoroughly rebuilt (ex. the transmission got all new gears as well as bearings, gaskets & synchronizers).

This car started life as 6 cylinder, 10 bolt with 3 on the tree. By the time I got the car, the original engine & transmission had already been replaced. To complete the 4 speed transformation, I've replaced the 3 speed column with a floor shift column.

It was originally white with a blue interior. It's now an original Mist Blue color with two-tone blue interior.

In case you're wondering, Why is this car for sale? I never keep any one car too long. I'll keep at most two "hobby cars" at a time, but that's it. I'm selling this car for one reason only - I've been there & done that...I'm ready for the next vehicle.

Ever wonder what the difference between a Bel Air, Biscayne or an Impala are? Check-out my Blog below.

Bel Air vs. Biscayne

Not everyone understands the difference between a Bel Air, Biscayne or an Impala. Thus, I'm going to do my best to try to explain the differences and similarities. The Bel Air line had changed after the introduction of the Impala (1958) and Caprice (1965)...
