Congratulations on a fantastic find. Another member here owns a Chateau Slate 66 L78. Not a very common color for sure.

No, this car is well documented and with original drive train and owner history and he has owned it for several years. However, the &quot;Doc&quot; you are referring to could in fact be the same guy as he is a Doctor and buys a lot of L78 cars.

I believe Doc O owns two Chateau Slate '66 L78s.

Great find!! CS is one of my favorite '66 colors.

<div class="ubbcode-block"><div class="ubbcode-header">Originally Posted By: OneStopRestoration</div><div class="ubbcode-body">Its not often that I ever post on forums, but over the years reading storys from others and hearing about there good fortune in finding increasingly rare and powerful muscles cars is a real treat to me. For this reason I hope some of you can find my story as entertaining as I have found many of yours.

4th Owner(Me aka Rick Berlage)
In July of this past year(2016) I happened to be on craigslist one late Sunday night after having a rather disappointing experience in looking at a blue 69 Chevelle SS south of Indianapolis that day. I was thumbing thru adds and came across a rather subtle 1966 SS for sale, once again around the Indianapolis area. I quickly blew through the pictures and the two things that caught my eye were what appeared to be an original 4 core radiator with finger guard and 6200rpm redline knee knocker tach. The car in the pictures didnít present itself very well with a lot of visible rust, no trunk floor and complete interior. At work the next day my interest intensified and a phone call to the owner had me trying to figure out when I would be able to come look at the car. Low and behold I was upset to know that another buying was driving to see the car. I told the owner thankyou and to please call if the guy backed out knowing I had probably just lost an L78 Chevelle. That night after agonizing over losing the car I called the owner and found that the other guy never showed. I indicated that I would be up early and out to see the car around 8am not wanting to waste anytime. As I indicated between the tach and radiator I felt certain the car was an L78 and bought it on the spot. Here are some pictures of the car
</div></div>
Thanks for posting that. I hope you plan on documenting what you're going to do with it. 66 is my favorite year for Chevelle's.
A funny 66 Chevelle side story... My Mother was backing a boat into the Charles River in Boston in the late 60s with my Dad's blue 66 Chevelle. My father was in the boat. She stalled it with the 4 speed and ended up putting in up to the top of the steering wheel. We have a pic of our German Shepard jumping out of the rear window. I'll have to see if I can dig it out some time.
