1969 CAPRICE SPORT SEDAN
Hi there, I am listing my 1969 Caprice green mist sport sedan for sale.I bought the Caprice sport sedan for a summer driver though unfortunately my storage situation came to an end and cannot let the Caprice sit outside in the damp Seattle climate. The Caprice has a factory L48 300 350 and replaced turbo 350 transmission with a 12 bolt rear end. I drove it up and down the road a few times and runs strong though has some moisture in the fuel tank thanks to the ethanol gas we use and sitting for a bit. No smoke or ticks, great engine. Read below for the good & bad points carefully:
-Super healthy strong factory L48 300 HP 350 with edelbrock 4 barrel carb
-Rebuilt turbo 350 automatic transmission
-12 Bolt rear axle
-Clean undercarriage, no floor or frame rust nor through trunk pan rust
-Clean interior with the exception of the dash pad (few cracks) and steering column handles pitted .
-I drove it up and down the road a few times and drives straight and good though needs new shocks and better handling tires.
-Replaced frontImpala amberturn signal lenses with correct Caprice clear lenses last weekend (not seen in photos).
-The ignition switch does not activate the starter when the key turned in the column. I wired a start wire from the firewall and battery to the inside to start the Caprice when the key is on.
-Paint is peeling in places and the hood has some rust in places. The passenger side quarter panel has minor rust and thetop of the firewall has some rust thanks to moisture and leaves which Icleaned out (see pics). Mismatched colored hood has som rust spots and can bolt another hood on no extra cost (gold color though).
-Front bumper has small bend near the license plate, I'll include a front bumper only if I can get it to fit in the trunk. Also passenger side rocker molding has a ding/bend in it.
-The Trunk on the left and the right wheel house area has gouges made by the owner prior owner before my friend I assume, see pics.
-I replaced the master cylinder last summer before I parked (got a bit surface rusty) and did not bleed it properly so it will need to be rebled since I bench bled it. You have to pump the pedal to bring foot pedal pressure up. I thought I did it right though not sure what's going on.
-Turn signals and horn due not work though headlights and tail/brake lights work good. I believe the turn cam in the column needs to be replaced which may have to do with the ignition issue as well. I will include another steering column you can use the internals for.
-Windshield has a crack in it and vinyl roof is worn a bit with a few bubbles underneath.
-Side glass seals are bad and due to sitting in the Seattle rain for a year moisture developed inside. The carpet is easy to lift up and dry the moisture underneath and above. This should get done soon as you get it home in dry garage. Use a hair dryer to dry the carpet and floor.
Also I did not know how to wire the power seat to work since the Caprice originally didn't have power seats and did drill another hole for the seat to bolt through to get it where I can sit in it.
This is about all I can say for now though please ask me any questions or concerns you have before you bid. The Caprice is sold as is & where is and is the winning buyers responsibility to pick up or have a transport service pick up the Caprice a week after funds are received. I will release the Caprice and mail the title (clear and in my name) certified mail to the new owner after funds clear. I require a $300.00 non refundable deposit via pay pal. The rest of the balance can either be wired to me by direct deposit chase bank or an authorized legit bank check. The check has to clear okay before I release the Caprice and title to it's new owner. No scammers saying they will send me a bank check for more than the car etc. I'm not stupid . Be straight forward with me and I will honor that by being straight forward back. If you perhaps have family in Seattle and they want to take a look at it locally (before you bid) I can show them (out it on a lift etc). Any questions you have at all before you bid, please do ask and no question is a silly one. Also any other photos you want of the Caprice, let me know and I will do so, again the Caprice is sold as is and where and it is the winning buyers responsibility to remove the Caprice from the premises a week after it is sold. Any negative or zero bidders bids will be canceled unless contacting me first. Thanks for looking and happy bidding, regards.
