Chevrolet Caprice
383 Stroked LT1
Odometer reads 14x,xxx
-i dont think this is correct but this is the cluster that was in it when i bought it. if you check carfax i think the body itself has around 225k
Motor rebuilt in 2009
-motor harness was inspected/reloomed in 2009 as well
Trans rebuilt in 2008
Interior completely redone in 2010
Bodywork was done in 2008

Price is $8,000 obo. may seem high but there is over $25 invested and EVERYTHING on this car has been redone except for the rear end

Well everyone it's time to move on, i just cant see owning this car anymore and only driving it 5-6 months a year. I am in no hurry to sell it so if i dont get around what im asking it will just sit back in the garage. The car is a head turner everywhere i go. I am CONSTANTLY getting compliments on it from everyone young and old. The Interior is amazing and i won "best interior age 25 and under" at a car show with it. it truely is an amazing car. it has not seen rain or snow since i had it repainted and i have driven it less that 5000 miles in 3 years. There are very few things wrong with it and i am a nit-picker. i will list everything wrong later on and i mean everything. The car is well known and well loved in the b body community and i have several people that can vouch for me on here and in person. I have a bunch of old/extra parts that i will throw in with the buyer if they want them otherwise they will just get thrown away. Feel free to ask any questions you may have. The best way to get ahold of me is email at [email protected]

This car is by no means a "daily driver". it is if you live in a well-tempered climate but several things have been "pinned out" aka removed:
-Heat removed
-A/C removed
-Wipers/washer resevior removed
-HVAC box removed
-Rear Defrost removed

there are a couple LIGHT scratches on the body in various places. should be able to buff out. most people dont even notice them but i do. the "biggest" one is on the trunk lid but i can barely catch my nail on it. it happens with any black car unfortunately

Power door locks do now work (could just be a relay im not sure)

There is an intermittant transmission problem - it is hard to explain. it runs/drives/shifts fine but occasionally when you go to get on it the shift points are messed up it seems

Needs tires. no chords showing but the front tires are cupped (low tread on outside and inside of tire, high tread on the center) and the rear tires are down to the wear bars

there is a vibration at around 70mph but i think this is due to the tires

the VERY bottom of the rear bumper has a some cracks in the clear only. the paint is fine but we were trailering it to a car show and the bumper caught and "hopped" on the pavement. it has been like this for 2 years and has not gotten worse. it is only noticable if its pointed out.

passenger front window needs the "window roller" fix. i have the parts i just havent gotten to it because i usually just leave the windows down.

The hood needs aligned. I never got around to it after i put the motor in. should be a simple fix

thats about it i cant really think of anything else wrong at all.

I didn't read the whole ad...(nice details BTW)

No AC though...kinda sucks...everyone likes AC...always see old cars out here in the summer with the windows up and think, "that AC is working good".

GLWS, beautiful car.

Can we know what the drastic price drop is please.

Thank you, i have written and its the AC unit delete holding me back right now.. i'm not a mechanic and i don't know any mechanic i trust in the Dallas, TX area since i have dealt with brand new cars for so long or the very low mileage SS Impala i use to own.

Thank you!

sorry, i edited the original post to reflect the price. i dropped the price to 8,000. i found a car i am interested so i am motivated to sell now.

i have the blower box for the AC but very little of the underhood stuff for it. i think the condenser is in the attic but you main issue will be not having the wiring for it. perhaps look into an aftermarket kit if AC is a critical issue for you.

Well after thinking this one over i can't do it because Texas inspections are tough here and i would need to do a lot to get it to pass it sounds like PLUS the AC work.

If only i was a youngster again where i could climb under the hood again.

Someone will get a killer car for tons less you can build this.

SOMEONE BUY THIS CAR SOON!!!!! Its beautiful

wow, what a great looking car.
The wheels, the interior. VERY nice.

any interest in a 1995 Audi S6?
RS2 turbo, manifold, injectors
034 RS2 ECU
Porsche 993 Twin Turbo front brakes
Bilstein Sport Shocks
H&R Sport Springs

I'm getting the turbo rebuilt this weekend at Borg Warner. It was making 300wtq and 271whp (AWD) on a Mustang dyno with the blown turbo and a boost leak
should break into the 300s for hp and 320s for tq when everything is back together.

Would it be possible to reinstall the heat, AC and HVAC stuff? kinda need heat in New England
