The 1969 Chevrolet Caprice coupe was the top of the line, but this one also was specially built to be different from day one. With the bold outside color scheme, big block under the hood, and a loaded A/C interior, this restored hardtop is truly a distinguished machine.
This is a special order paint color, and the trim tag and partial buildsheet prove it. While Hugger Orange was available elsewhere across the General Motors lineup, the muscle car color doesn't appear to be part of the upper-class Caprice's history. So it would have taken a true lover of boldness and luxury to create a car like this. That's also why something this special was given a full frame-off restoration. The sheetmetal is amazingly straight, which makes for a terrific canvas to re-apply the special bold paintwork. The speedy and slick orange nicely contrasts with the black vinyl roof to deliver a fast-with-class total appearance. Plus, the premium Caprice had some great exclusive features like the functional, optional hide away headlights and the special full-length trim that coordinates so nicely with the hardtop on this example. And the polished Torq Thrust wheels go so nicely with the rest of the mirror-like brightwork. So while the factory hubcaps come with the sale, this upgrade really complements this car's special attitude.
This dual luxury and performance stance continues on the loaded interior. Plush button-top seating and wood-like trim give everyone the premium feeling. But this is also a more personal machine thanks to a fold-down armrest up front and a three-spoke sports steering wheel. The full blackout package looks great against the exterior, and so you'll love showing off this hardtop profile everywhere. And that's especially easy thanks to power windows and factory air conditioning now blowing cold with modern R134a. Plus, there are more great amenities like cruise control, provisions for power locks, and a power adjusting seat. Even the AM/FM 8-track stereo is still pumping out tunes for great period-correct cruising.
Big luxury needs a big motor, and those 427 badges on the fender didn't lie. You can see more evidence of the quality level of the restoration in the way this period-correct big block looks quite factory fresh. The four-barrel carb on top is exactly what you want for power. But remember, this is a luxury cruiser, too. So the dual exhaust has a throaty rumble, but not an overpowering one. And the TH400 three-speed automatic shifts smoothly like a true boulevard cruiser should. Plus, the power steering and power brakes w/discs up front means you can take everyone on ice cream runs without breaking a sweat.
