You may remember Jason Bagge, he of the Brougham Whispering. The 1974-76 “Glass House” Caprice coupe, so named due to its huge, fixed quarter windows, is probably his favorite old car. Many of his cars have been written up here on RG, including a ’76 Bonneville, ’76 Ninety-Eight and 1978 Marquis. You may also recall he’s had two different 1976 Caprice Classic Landau coupes.
One triple black…
And one triple burgundy.
Both were sold for “the next one”, as so frequently happens in Jason’s world. There is always that next old car. Or two. Or three.
But now another one has been located. As of this writing there is approximately a 99.8% chance he’s getting it. As he told me today,
“You have no idea-well maybe you do!-about how pumped I am to get that rare color combo 76 Landau. The car is loaded to the gills with options too. Full power, litter container, map container, original spare, power trunk, cruise, tilt, AC-the works.”
Expect a full report at some later date. The days of these Nimitz-class Caprices being $500 beaters is long gone, and thanks to the custom crowd and the demolition derby crowd, these are getting hard to find in decent original shape! Jason will have this one in near-showroom condition in no time.
