Agreed. It's a very clean car with a well documented history and was rebuilt by one of the biggest names in B-bodies.

Fine, the dirt bike was stolen anyways. What I DO have is a full set of kitchen cabinets from this house that was built in the 60's that I remodeled. They're avocado green and they smell like old Pall Malls.

That's one of the George Bates' Caprices right here...



I bought this in Austria of all places back in 2006... It was one of the worst cars I ever had. Just about everything on that car except the drivetrain and running gear was shot to pieces. They did a really strange reupholstery job on the front seats. Seems like it was auctioned off with no backseast, and three subsequent owners (an LA landscaping business and two Austrians) failed to replace it. On top of that, virtually every bit of sheetmetal on that car hat at least once been repaired, heavily bondoed up, that is, and the whole mess was painted really badly.

Maybe quality is found with individual experience. My Bates 9C1 came with a new LT1/4L60E. At the time, the drive train had 15k and it has 43k now and the remanned trans had to be replaced late last year. And i also added a posi with original 3.08's after the spider pin broke at 120k chassis miles. I cant blame Bates for that. As far as the body work, it'd been 10 years and 15k miles since the sheriff's dept. had it rebuilt and I was essentially the second owner (the auction guy doesn't really count). The paint was faded badly from sitting in the sun. The body is still as straight as an arrow 3 years later. I called the Bates company to retrieve any records of my car. They asked me for the roof #, but I had repainted the car, so I went back to the pictures I snapped before buying it and turned down the resolution to see the glue on the roof, and there it was. They sent me a nice folder of all the paper work including the $13,000 in receipts for all the things they fixed or replaced. You can view before and after pics of my car here in my 9C1 build thread. http://badass-of-ne.forumotion.com/t3198-my-9c1-project-so-far

I guess so... Mine was rebuilt in 1999, and then driven for another 100k miles before I got it. There was plenty of time for three owners to mess up any good that Bates had done. Being used by a Landscaping business surely didn't make the car any better either. All in all, it was a pretty strange thing, running strong, tight suspension, but body and interior wasted away. Do you have pictures of your cars interior when you bought it?
Nice collection of AAVs, by the way. If you're ever selling one of them, let me know. Very Happy

I do have pics of the interior somewhere, but they were through the door glass. The inside was very clean and the seats were immaculate. I did have to get the correct rear seat however. It came with a 91-93 which doesnt fit right and finally got a good used matching vinyl one from as club member here.

The AAVs are not for sale lol. Ive been out of the military for almost 3 years, so a trip to Germany may be out of the question for now. I stopped in Ramstein and the other airport where that guy went nuts and shot at the U.S. soldiers a year or 2 ago.
