Looks like it only 2 cars now , the Autotrader one is removed.

Really too hard to tell you what you should ask about any car. Every used car is different, but try to slim it down to what you want for price, mileage, options etc. and go with what you think is best. I would guess each car has its own benefits but would lean toward one a Forum member may be selling. At least you could trace some of the history of the car too.

If you're not sure what to ask may be wrong with a car, take someone who may know or pay a mechanic to check it out. These cars are over 15 YO and are going to need something no matter how low the mileage

'95 Caprice SS conversion - Bonny Buckets - 96 Column, Shifter and Console - 3.73 Gear and Herter tune - Z/28 Cluster - Blazer OH Console - Green/Pink bushings - Chromed Impala Wheels - Eibach Springs and Bilstein Shocks - Corvette Engine Dress - the list goes on and still more to do...it never ends.

Not Much To Add

Yah, that 56k miler seems a legit contender. The leather kit must be close to a grand in itself. I like if a seller has kept receipts for things and generally shows pride in ownership with consistent maint. items (as that seller seems to have).

Last thought: I always focus on buying the car, not the price. Get exactly what what you're looking for whether a garage queen or a fixer-beater. Then put a fair value on it and be prepared to buy ---- or walk.

Good luck.

\'96SS SOB: SSRI, Herter Tune, Tri-Y II, SLP SS, 3000 Edge, F/HO bars, METCO extendeds, Bilsteins, currently Vredestein Ultrac Sessanta (315/35 rear)
\'96FWB BUW-Butt Ugly White: [gonna change that just as I did my last one] boxstock [yep, that's changing too]
