96 White Caprice B4U

For sale is a 96 Caprice B4U, white with blue interior. I bought it in 2005 with 63K miles, and it now has 172K miles, but still looks like much less. I drove it as a daily driver for several years, but for the last three years it has been used for an occasional drive and drag racing with the Carolina Class Racers. It currently runs in G/Pure Stock class and runs 8.30s on a 9.10 index. It is also very streetable and recently driven on a Saturday afternoon trip of 150 miles with no problems.
Now for the details:
96 Caprice B4U, 172K miles on car, approximately 2K on new engine.
LT1 with balanced forged internals, mild Comp Cam and related valve train components. Short block assembled and heads prepped by Doc Bilbrey of Performance Specialties and installed and tuned by Mayhem Motorsports. Currently running OBD 1 computer, but also have a tuned OBDII computer. Exhaust is Clear Image Automotive tri-y headers with Pypes exhaust system with y-pipe and cat-delete pipes with cut-outs. Rear wheel HP is 305 and torque is 355.
Transmission was rebuilt by Staples Automotive Engineering in August, 2009 with all the good parts. Still pulls strong and shifts perfect. Now has a 3600 stall converter that was installed with the new engine after being rebuilt by Ultimate Converter Concepts.
Rear is a 9C1 width with an Eaton posi unit and 4.10 gears. Moser axles installed and rear brakes converted to disc brakes. All wheel studs are ARP extra length to accommodate Weld style wheels, no longer on the car. ABS module is removed from under the hood and a line lock installed.
AC compressor and related parts were replaced a couple of years ago and still work great. On those super hot days at the track, make a pass and turn the air on down the return lane.
Thatís the major details of the build, and there are lots of other little odds and ends that are included. I have not been able to enjoy this car much during the past year, and itís not looking like this year will be any better. I am asking $7,000 for the car, and this will not cover the cost of the engine build. If interested, please call me at 919-612-2672, or email [email protected].

I saw it on HPJ and I like it!Hate you are giving it up after all these years but someone will be getting a nice car!I can vouch for Doc Bilbry and Mayhem Motorsports(they tuned my 383 LT4 vette) as well.He (Doc)has done my last two BB Dodge motors and they have been running strong for 10+ years.

If you have the time I would be interested in your cam specs(pm me if you like)for comparison as I have a fresh similar motor going together for mine.I am wondering whether to go bigger on the cam or not.

Good luck with the sale.
