1967 Chevrolet Caprice
Ford had introduced a luxury series called the LTD and in response, Chevrolet introduced the luxury trim package, Caprice, in 1965. It was available on the four-door Impala models with the name being chosen by Bob Lund, the General Sales Manager, after a New York City restaurant. The package included full wheel covers, a vinyl top, and a upgraded suspension. On the interior the cloth and vinyl seats, and carpeting were of better quality. The dashboard and door panels featured walnut trim. Pull straps were added to the doors to make it a little more luxurious and easier when closing the door. Additional convenience lights completed the package.
The market rewarded Chevrolet for this new offering with strong sales. The following year Chevrolet made the package available on more of its body-styles such as the two-door hardtop and a station wagon. The list of amenities that the Caprice trim offered was expanded to include a standard V8 engine. Other items were offered as optional equipment but most of the Caprice were purchased with the options. The list of popular options included power steering, white sidewall tires, automatic transmission, and vinyl top. Additional items such as power seats, stereo radio, power windows, and air conditioning was also available.
Offered is a true “time warp” survivor big block Chevy Caprice that checks ALL the boxes for options, condition, and mechanical soundness.
Where will you find a car like this? The Capri Cream paint with Black vinyl top looks like the day it came off the showroom. Originally a California car the Caprice still has its original factory smog air pump. Chrome and paint are mint and the interior is as nice as an original car could have.

With just 31,548 original miles this 396ci 325hp gem is sight to behold and drives every bit as good as it looks. Try to find another one!
