SOLD - For sale is a 96 Caprice B4U, white with blue interior. I bought it in 2005 with 63K miles, and it now has 180K miles, but still looks like it has much less miles. I drove it as a daily driver for several years, but for the last four 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 I drove it last summer due to the air conditioner working so well. I haven't had time to run it any in the last couple of years, so just been driving it to work occasionally, especially during the summer.
Now for the details:
96 Caprice B4U, 180K miles on car, approximately 8K on new engine, rebuilt in 2014.
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 II computer to pass inspection, but also have a tuned OBD I computer. Exhaust is Clear Image Automotive tri-y headers with Pypes exhaust system with x-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. Have 2 sets of 15X8 truck rally wheels, one set with MT Drag Radials and one set with 255/70 street tires.
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.
That's 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 it's not looking like this year will be any better. I am asking $5,000 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]
