The engine bay of the Chevy Caprice looks to be quite original and well detailed. The original, numbers-matching 307 V8 is fed by a four-barrel carb and backed by a four-speed automatic transmission. It’s not the hottest drivetrain ever, but that wasn’t the point. It was reliable, it was smooth, and it was quiet. It was the luxo-barge of the suburban mom.
This Chevy Caprice wagon is sold complete with the original owner’s manual and invoice. No, it isn’t a hot rod, performance car, or exotic, but drive this to your next Cars and Coffee, or better yet Radwood, and you will draw a crowd you can’t believe. There is that much nostalgia for these, as so many of us grew up being shuttled about in them. If you weren’t driven around in one, you know someone who was.
