DESCRIPTION

Neatly bridging the gap between practicality and performance, this somewhat unassuming 1971 Chevrolet Caprice sedan is the car you hoped your dad would buy back in '71. You knew he needed lots of space for the family, but with 454 cubic inches under the hood, it was more than just a transportation appliance. Modernized, upgraded, but not fully "Donk'd", this Caprice is a sweet big body 2-door with all the right looks and a lot of pop under the hood.



The Caprice took over as the top-of-the-line from the Impala the generation before, and 1971 marked a complete redesign to kick off the brand new 2nd generation cars. As a result, this bright Pearl White sedan has a long, low, sporting look that features bold, Chrysler-like fuselage styling. Nicely restored to a high-quality driver standard, this handsome car neatly does double duty as comfortable and luxurious daily driver and surprisingly potent muscle car. It was refinished a few years ago with upgraded Pearl White paint (it was originally code 11 Antique White), although as a popular car with its owner, it does have some signs of use. The doors fit well and there are no indications of accident damage, and you already know the survival rate of sedans like this is quite low, so you probably won't see another one at local shows. The chrome and stainless trim is probably original, from the wrap-around front bumper to the rocker moldings, to the rear bumper which features the Impala's triple taillights, and it's in good condition for being more than 45 years old. The rear taillights and side marker lights have been smoked for a cool look, and that feature matches nicely with the black vinyl top and lower body paint, providing a nice contrast to the white finish.



The Caprice's top-of-the-line status is most evident inside, where you get room for six and big, comfortable seats that could be the sofas in your grandmother's living room. Actually, it's more updated than that, with upscale black cotton upholstery that looks rather handsome and matches the door panels and large dash perfectly. Options include factory A/C that's been upgraded to cold R134a refrigerant, a sporty Grant steering wheel mounted on a tilt column, and a set of four digital auxiliary gauges mounted under the dash to help monitor the engine's vitals, flanked by a large tachometer that keeps an eye on the revs. All the soft surfaces are in very good condition, including the plush carpets below and the taut headliner above. The gauges cover the basics in a wide, linear instrument panel that's been backlit by cool blue lighting, and the stereo system has been upgraded to a Kenwood AM/FM/CD/AUX head unit neatly installed in the dash. In the back, you get incredible stretch-out space for plenty of friends, which is perfect for road trips, plus a gargantuan trunk that includes a 5th spare tire and wheel combo, so a flat tire will never cramp your style.



The number '454' is magic to Chevy fans, and putting 454 cubic inches of big block V8 in a full-sized sedan makes some interesting things happen. With good horsepower and torque, it's potent enough to surprise other drivers on the street, but it's also smooth and unobtrusive when you just want to cruise. It happily eats up hundreds of miles of interstate at a stretch, and at shows, watch the crowd form when you unveil the bright Chevy Orange engine. It runs beautifully and looks good in the stylish engine bay, with a Cadillac-style air cleaner, M/T valve covers, and other accessories that help maintain the luxury car persona. It's backed by a heavy-duty TH400 3-speed automatic transmission and 10-bolt rear end, so the hardware is there, and the upgraded dual exhaust system with Flowmaster mufflers adds a throaty V8 sound. Flashy chrome REV wheels look great and are wrapped in 235/70/15 Cooper Cobra white-letter radials that enhance the sport-luxury car look.



Anything with a 454 is pretty cool, but a luxury car with 2-doors and that kind of muscle is our kind of fun. Call today!
