This is the last of the great large luxury Chevrolets. After 1996, Chevy shut the books on American Caprices, so when you can find one that has spent a lifetime in great care, the value goes beyond the big V8 under the hood and the luxury interior.
This 1996 Chevrolet Caprice Classic is the right car for a certain type of person. This is for the one who not only appreciate the new wave of vintage cars that have modern convenience and styling, but also loves all the great classic American hallmarks of a full-sized vehicle. It starts up front with the wide grille and upright hood ornament leading the way. You see a premium profile with a crease that starts at the headlights and runs uninterrupted through the trunk and around the other side. There's even a great bright trim strip that run around the entire sedan, except for at the license plate, where the bumper provides part of an integrated dip in the design. There are old-school values, and you can see them perfectly thanks to great care of the entire body and factory Driftwood paint. And while all of these help this Caprice truly earn its “Classic” name, there's more to see here. The streamlined design and stylized optional alloys are the kind of elements that could only come from the modern age. It's this total package of new and old worlds that truly makes the car special.
Inside it's fully loaded to be comfortable cruiser. In fact, while this is a full-sized vehicle with room for family and friends, you can always be driving in individual comfort thanks to a fold-down center console that allows for bucket style cruising. There has been great care with this one-owner car, and so the beige leather shows barely a mark, even in the driver's seat. As the-top-of-the-line luxury Chevy, this came with an impressive list of features, including keyless entry, digital speedometer, power seats, power windows, power locks, wood-like trim, rear defrost, factory AM/FM/CD stereo, and ice-cold R134a air conditioning. Because this is a modern classic, it also comes with desirable safety features like dual airbags and anti-lock brakes.
Under the hood, the numbers-matching motor is in an engine bay that looks like a 1996 time capsule. Below the factory plastic covers is the optional 5.7-liter LT1 V8 engine. Yes, this is the same type of fuel-inject powerplant that was available in the Corvette and Impala SS. But it also has been tuned for luxury in this Caprice. That means plenty of power whenever you need it, but the kind of quiet operation that keeps in good standing with the neighbors. This powerful & luxury dual nature is best felt on the open road. You have a 4L60E four-speed automatic transmission with a highway-ready overdrive, and the suspension is set up for easy cruising with thick sway bars at each end. Plus, the power steering, cruise control, and front disc brakes are all perfect for the long haul.
This big Chevy comes with plenty of documentation, including the original window sticker, dealer invoice, and owner's manual, so you can really how off all the best features of this new classic for years to come. This car was a cherished sedan by its first owner, and now it's looking for you to carry the torch. Call today!!!
