1978 Chevrolet Caprice
For sale is a beautiful 1978 Caprice Landau model. This two door coupe spent it's entire life in hot, dry Texas until purchased by me a couple of years ago. The Caprice has always been garage kept and it shows. The original V-8 305 engine hasa little over 112K miles and still runs great. The car starts, stops, runs, and drives as it should. This full size Caprice is comfortable to drive, and will take you anywhere. The car has had one professional repaint, and is beautiful. The gloss black paint shows like a mirror and the super straight panels reflect that. The car's air conditioning, cruise control, automatic windows, and all other functions work as they should (with the exception of the clock). The beautiful black interior is near perfect and shows very littlewear (if any). The dash pad is cracked and covered with a custom fit dash cap that looks good and fits well (see photos). I'd like to stress that it's a Landau model. They're more desirable because they were produced in much lower numbers than the regular Coupes. Also, that car is just LOADED with options, such as the RPO Code D34 passenger side kick panel litter basket. It also has the 8.5" rear end (vs. the 7.5") in it so it has the RPO Code F40 HD suspension. A couple other things: It has the Deluxe interior. (color keyed seat belts, Velore fabric, thicker floor and door insulation) It has the 50/50 split bench seat. The condition of the headliner, sun visors, and interior plastics are in excellent shape. The rear center bumper filler is in good shape. The trunk is solid and comes with original carpet, tire cover, and spare. In fact the car still has a lot of the original paperwork from purchase included including registration, extended warranty, and Caprice catalog along with numerous receipts. One look and you can see this car was extremely well taken care of. I have added headers and a stainless dual exhaust just to help with the attitude, and it sounds perfect! The car just completed a complete Pennsylvania inspection needing nothing and is inspected thru 4/2018. I know the '78 Caprice is not a '67 Chevelle, but if you are looking for a dependable, beautiful car to take to you local cruises without breaking the bank, here it is. With all that said, this is a 40 year old classic. There may be very small chips or imperfections in the paint work (note the paint missingunder license plate), but absolutely nothing that distracts from the overall appearance. The door molding could be replaced, as shown in the photos. The original AM/FM 8 Track still works, and the under dash cd player in the photos has been removed. This is one of the cleanest, most original '78's out there. Please review all of the photos and feel free to ask any questions. Review my 100% perfect Ebay feedback and bid with confidence! PLEASE have financing arranged before hand! If you have negative feedback, or less then 10 transactions, please e-mail me before bidding.
Inspections are welcome. The car is for sale locally and if sold, the auction will be canceled.
Please remember, this is a 40 year old car.
I am representing it as accurately as I can based on my knowledge
and have tried to give as much information as possible.
It is being sold without warranty and as is...
Update: The turn signal lever has broken. The signal still works fine, but plastic piece is broken.
Ebay does not allow clickable links any longer. If you would like to see a walk around video of the car go to You Tube and type in 1978 Caprice Randy Rolf and it will pull up a couple of videos of the Caprice...
