There is something about the last of square third generation Chevy Caprices that is just special. I am not sure exactly what that is – its industrial looks, new one piece headlights, smoothed out corners of an amazingly square car? Perhaps they were simply around in abundance when I was a little kid in New York City, forever influencing my taste in cars?
Whatever the reason is, it turns out that there are many yahoos like me out there, with feelings for this workhorse. Today we look at one one of the last ones, with an LT1 motor from the later Caprice.

I am kind of disappointed that there are no pictures of the interior or of the engine. It looks lovely and sounds great from the description. The description does not specify if this vehicle had the 9C1 Police package, but that isn’t really relevant anymore since the drivetrain has been replaced.
The $7900 asking price seems a bit high but perhaps it’s justifiable if the extent of the modifications was known.
