I’ve always loved these early downsized Caprices. I’ve probably mentioned it before, but when I was a little kid there were TWO 1977 Caprice Estates on my block. They looked so cool. One cream, one tobacco brown. Both with Di Noc woodgrain sides.
Per the ad: “This car is a 1977 Chevrolet Caprice Classic. This is a 1 owner car with all the original papers. 35,200 original miles.”
“Original paint and vinyl top. Perfect tires. This is a North Carolina car with no rust. Tilt wheel cruise control and air conditioning.”
“The engine is a 305V8. Garage kept always. This car is in perfect shape. No tire kickers please. For more information Call 706 884 1870 Or 706 298 9848.”
Now it looks great. I love the gold. It’s a shame it doesn’t have the 350 V8 and THM transmission.
And you bet it’s pricey, at almost nineteen grand, though clearly a time capsule.
I remember a neighbor back when I was a teen, Jim Carlson, bought a light beige ’77 Caprice Classic as a work car.
It wasn’t mint but it was nice. Matching beige top and velour interior, a sedan.
He worked at the Rock Island Arsenal and frequently bought older ’70s cars as work cars; his wife had a nice late model Town and Country.
This was circa 1998-99 and you could still find these in nice shape for cheap. Those days are long gone.
I don’t think I’d pay the ask on this one without a 350, but it shows a time when people still appreciated a large, attractive sedan, and didn’t settle for a silver silvermist Equinox because they were scared of their wife. Bwa ha!
