PostSubject: Auction Find - 85 Caprice Landau Coupe   Wed Feb 25, 2015 9:50 pm

Was at the local public auto auction last week, this car went up for bid. No one bid, surprise. It's back up for bid this Saturday. Rotbox! Rear 1/4 panels are gone behind the doors, front a-pillar is all bubbled up under the vinyl. But it has good points; clean interior, floors and frame appear solid, engine runs nice and quiet, and it drives. I'm not really interested in it, but if you came to auction this Saturday you could snag it. Auction goes as low as $250, plus $140 in buyers and documentation fees (yes it has a title Massholes) it could be yours.

Follow the link for pictures.

If I needed more parts (cars), like I need a whole in the head, it looks like a worthy deal.

It also has an H as the engine code in the VIN supplied.

Also FYI 262 "v8" were never used in a Caprice, only Monza and the '75ish nova had this engine.

The 267 was briefly used, but it was like '79-'82.

I've come across ONE box Caprice with a V6, everything else was 305/350.

That sir, isn't true. My '85 4 door, manual window, no cruise, no tilt, drivers only mirror, full bench Caprice was a 262.

I'll go through my old paperwork and see if I can find insurance papers or something with the VIN.

I do recall, back in HS (like 13 years ago now) looking at a later box Caprice, I think it was an 88 coupe with a 4.3L V6, had the "4.3L Electronic Fuel Injection" callouts on the front fenders. I thought that was fairly rare being a V6. Of course being a broke teenager I couldn't afford it.

I was talking about a 262 V8. Because I thought your previous post referred to a v8.

The only good parts he stated I really don't need a third/fourth copy of. The doors and 1/4s are toast I'm not interested lol.

Can't hold back, it had to be an 87, no 88 coupes. And yes they had the 4.3, why anyone would buy it is beyond me though!

What the cars I bought? A 98 Nissan sedan and a 86 Saab lol. Saab's in nice shape so I'm gonna drive it for a bit. Nissan going straight to craigslist, it was kinda an impulse buy. Got them for 525 out the door each.

I'm crestfallen that my lack of home internet access made me miss this thread, I'd have liked to go check that thing out. I also missed the 4.3 vs. 4.4 and 88 Caprice coupe debate. Fail.
