That's actually pretty awesome! Not entirely an accurate description, but cool nonetheless. Wink

Hahaha, I don't know how I feel about that! It's cool though, looks like the owner has a few other 71-76 cars as well.


That is a '76 Caprice, but for some reason the rectangle headlight header panel is still present with round headlights mounted inside of it....wonder why they did that. Such an odd setup all around. I wonder what these looked like on 60s Impalas...

I really like that year Sedan! There was one in Maine on Uncle Henrys a few years back.

I would go camping in that. If I camped. Needs an LSx.

Love the L98 update. Thing is just sweet.

75 caprice, and 76 impalas both had round head lights with square buckets...
76 caprice has square headlights, and square buckets
74 impalas and caprices and 1975 impalas (not caprice) had the 74 style bumper
75 caprice, and 1976 impala and caprices had the 76 style bumper

It's a 75 caprice...... Basketball

The TV is for the backup camera.

If it's a 75 Caprice, it has a 76 header panel added. The header panels between the square headlight cars and the round headlight cars are completely different in addition to the buckets and trim. That's why this car looks like it's "angry", the round headlights are taller than the square headlights, so the tops are tucked up in the header panel.

In fact, that car has 1972 Chevrolet passenger car headlight trim around the headlights as well...

75 and 76 have the exact same nose as far as I know....
Only differences were the grille & emblem, and the lights.

You sure they are different panels?
I just emailed the guy asking what was up with the nose. Lol let's see what he says back!

Nooooooooooo, the header is different parts. The header panel headlight openings on the 75 Caprice are a little taller and wider, the 76 Impala uses that nose too. The 76 Caprice nose is unique, the only other unique 71-76 nose is the 74 Impala, lol.

The hood and fenders are the same for 75 Caprice-76 all Chevy passenger cars though!

75 Caprice:





76 Caprice:







However, it's a very common swap, and looks awesome:

It says backup camera, so I could have used my imagination to figure out why the TV is there Laughing but I didn't read in the first place geek
