I have up for sale my old tried-and-true 95 Caprice wagon. She's a local and national legend!
But I have inherited my wife's Roadmaster wagon, so I no longer have a need for "Morticia." The car is satin black with gloss black flames and a grey cloth interior. It has the Corvette-derived 350LT1 v8 with a 4 speed automatic tranny. Fully loaded. Dual power seats. AC. Power locks and windows and mirrors. Remote Start and Keyless entry. It has high miles (204K), is fairly rusty, but at least she sure is ugly!
This car is definately a looker. It turns heads everywhere I go. With the deep tint, moon caps, and custom paint, it just looks sinister heading down the road. I get asked about it at stoplights and at the store. I get thumbs up all over, from all ages. It gets a bit of attention at cruise nights, too!
I drive this car EVERYWHERE! I would not hesitate to hop in and drive it across the country. I regularly take it to Upstate NY and to NJ without any reservations. And, with the cruise set at 78MPH, I get 24-25 MPG! Not bad for a big, heavy, powerful V8 station wagon that can actually HAUL STUFF!
Believe it or not, you can actually fit a 4'x8' sheet of plywood or sheetrock in her!
This car has had a ton of work done to it since I've owned it. I repaired the driver's floor board due to rust. Patched the spare tire well. Installed Bonnevile Bucket seats (including modifying the rear to fold!) and an S10 center console. It has upgraded speakers all around and a Pioneer Deck (or maybe a brand new Sony if I swap in the one from my wife's car) and it sounds great. The tranny has been replaced. I did a complete tune up. New heater core. Water pump and thermostat. HD Gabriel shocks. Remote start with Keyless entry. 3.23 posi rear end. New fuel pump and sending unit. Recent tires and brakes. Brake lines. Turbo mufflers and big, silly chrome tips. Sounds great and runs awesome!
This car is just plain awesome. It'd make a great first car for someone in high school or a good winter vehicle or secondary car. This thing is AWESOME in the snow with just a pair of cheap snow tires on the rear. I will even include a spare pair of rims if you like. It could use a little work here and there, as the lower quarters are starting to rust through and the D-pillars are starting to bubble. An exhaust leak has recently popped up, but I will try to take care of it before the sale. But it is mechanically sound and a great driver. She's a great cruiser and is just a nice all around ride. The great thing about big american RWD cars is that they are very simple to work on and parts are dirt cheap for them.
I hate to sell, but I don't have a need for two of these! And to be honest, my wife's car is just in better shape. I will hate to see Morticia go, as she has become a member of the family and I have some great memories in this car. I just don't have the room any more...
Asking $1650 or BO. Can be seen in Nashua, NH.
Thanks for looking!
