1976 Chevrolet Caprice Description

1976 Chevrolet Caprice Classic Landau

This car was purchased new by my parents in 1976.

When my mother stopped driving (she was 91 years old at the time) she gave it to me.

It has taken my parents and their family on vacations to Disneyland and Yellowstone Park and been the centerpiece for wedding photos.

It is finally time to let someone else enjoy it.

It has been well maintained since it was new and as far as I know needs nothing other than possibly a new set of tires. They still have good tread but have been on the car quite a while.

There are nothing but OEM parts on the car, o modifications, o cut wires, o changes other than mentioned below.

58,424 miles on the odometer since new.

400 cubic inch small block engine. These engines were prone to overheat if the coolant level was not maintained and that is exactly what happened when my mom was about 88 years old. She kept driving, verheated the engine and cracked the block. The car was repaired at the dealer with a new short block so the engine really probably has about 10,000 miles in my estimation.

Turbo 400 automatic transmission that has had the fluid changed about two years ago.

Power Steering

The power brake master cylinder started leaking a year ago so it has a new master cylinder, roportioning valve and fresh brake fluid.

Fresh coolant as of last year.

Air conditioning worked when my mom gave me the car but doesn’t now due to inactivity that probably caused it to lose some Freon. It probably needs charged up again to get it working.

The car includes the original window sticker, anuals, ack and jacking instructions.

As you can see in the photos the interior is beautiful and is in excellent condition and still smells like a new car inside.

The car has a rust free Southern Idaho body.

The chrome bumpers, rille, eadlight trim, ail lights are straight in nice condition.

There are small dings on the anodized aluminum trim around the wheel wells, he door edge guards and the lower rocker moulding. I bought new factory NOS door edge guards that are in the trunk ready to install.

The lacquer paint is in good shape for the age of the car.

There are some scratches that are shown in some close up photos.

The car has never been wrecked or damaged but at one time there was a small crease on the front lower part of the driver’s quarter panel. I had it repaired and repainted and the paint match was a little darker. You can see this area in one of the photos. In most light it is not really noticeable but does show up at the angle and lighting condition in one photo so you could see it.

I replaced the rear exhaust with dual mufflers and tail pipes with chrome tips while retaining the original front exhaust and cat so it will meet emission regulations. It sounds very mellow and sweet.

Eight track stereo plus a selection of period correct tapes are included.

Fresh Lube, il Filter with Mobile One Synthetic 10-30w

For sale in lower 48 states only.

Buyer is responsible for shipping.

The car will be available for pick up at my shop in Meridian, daho
