One popped up somewhat local to me, and I have to say, for some reason I've always wanted a classic Cadillac! Only problem is while I have owned 20+ cars, 99.9% of them have been 1990+ and Japanese, leaving me clueless as to what seems to be a fair price :). Doing research on sold listings on eBay as well as checking out Hagerty, NADA, and a few other sites tells me it's priced on the lowside, but not "too good to be true" good. So I figured I'd ask the natives.....

Contacted the seller and he says it just rolled over 100K and the floorboards are supposedly good. Power Steering, Power Brakes, Air Conditioning, 429, runs & drives but power steering makes a noise.(Not sure if it's the low fluid whine or something else) $3,500

Thoughts or other questions I should ask the seller(besides the usual car stuff)? Think this would make a good driving project?

The price sounds fair to me from the pics. I would look at all the normal rust areas before pulling out the cash. Maybe you could swing a deal without the wheels.

This price isn't "too good" assuming everything checks out right? This one has a few more bumps and bruises than others I have seen, but this one seems to be $2-$3k under the $5500-$7K average I have been seeing.

I'm not familiar with the '66 Coupe market right now so I'm just making personal opinions. I always recommend buying the best condition vehicle you can afford. It's easier than fixing/rebuilding a cheaper one. I have to admit that dirty tan interior kind of turns me off so I don't think the price is "too good". If there were other 63-71 Coupes with better interiors and less rust for a couple grand more I think I would lean that way.

The chrome and stainless in those 66 and 67 interiors (and several other years) really pops with a black interior. That tan interior kind of makes it all blend on this car. That's why it turns me off personally. I fell in love with Caddys in high school after sitting in a 67 deVille with black interior; so classy.

Couldn't agree more. I have never been a fan of tan interiors, but with the budget I'm working with can't be picky!

Seems like it need a lots of work... But the drop and wheels looks great. Below $2000 would be a decent price for it.
I thought it had been lowered a bit, but wasn't sure!

Can these cars really be bought for under $2K running and driving? I'm all for trying to work a deal, but if it's not realistic......
