Seller's notes: "Car needs total restoration, but its all there and mostly all original. The car starts and runs and would be a great project for someone. It has not been driven or licensed since 2001. It was our daily driver until that point. When we decided to sell it a few months ago, it started right up with a new battery and a set of points. I think with a little work and a few parts it would be road worthy again if you wanted to drive it until you start the restoration. It was a great car for us until we parked it, we parked it due to gas mileage and fuel costs. It is a great car to start with, but I would recommend at least a full mechanical restoration due to the amount of time that it has been sitting. But the engine fired right up and sounds pretty good and it drove around to my shop. It felt like the brakes were hanging up a little. That is all I know about it for now, we have not drove it on the road since 2001."

 1973 Chevrolet Caprice Classic. Original "454" car with Turbo 400. It has the original engine. transmission and rear end. It looks like original paint and other than a few dings and dents and some rust on the lower sections. the car is a good old solid car. It has factory air conditioning. power steering. power disc brakes. after market cruise control. remote outside mirror. tilt steering wheel. factory fender skirts. factory under hood light. factory trunk light. factory bumper guards. The speedometer says 54. 04 miles. but I would imagine that it has 154. 04 miles? I have no way of knowing if it the speedometer has been turned over or not. The car needs a total restoration in my eyes. but it's up to you. We bought the car in 1998 and it was our daily driver until 2001. We parked it due to fuel costs because of of long commute to work. it was running and driving fine until that point. We were driving it around 35-40 miles a day. mostly freeway miles. So it's been parked behind our shop since 2001. I put a new battery and a new set of points in the distributor and some gas in the tank and it fired right up last month. We drove it in the shop. changed the oil and filter. cleaned it up a little and put it up for sale. The engine still sounds pretty good and the transmission works in all gears. but the brakes seem to be hanging up a little. It is a original green car with a vinyl top and green interior. I do have a few extra parts that I will throw in off of a 1972 Chevy Impala. a front bumper and a transmission cross member. They look similar to the Caprice. if you don't want them let me know. It would be a fun project for someone who likes these bigger cars. We have more pictures of the car if you want them or if there is some part of the car you would like to see better. just let me know. We tried to get pictures on Ebay to cover most of the car that we could. If you have any questions at all. please give me a call at 509-701-3633. The car will be sold as is. Thanks for looking. good luck. There will be a $1000. 00 non-refundable deposit due as soon as the auction ends and payment due in full within 3 days of auction close. Pay Pal will work for the deposit and either cash in person or bank wire transfer. no exceptions.
