PostSubject: I'm from Siberia   Wed Jul 15, 2015 7:46 am

Well, here I am, my Chevrolet Caprice Wagon.. Here we call cars like this a Barn..
Looks like crap, seams like crap cause IT is a crap! But only a few folks on the planet could seed a pure gold under it's rust and dirt! drunken
I know it doesn't look like it is worth of any efforts, but the cars like this are getting harder and harder to find especially here!
I have no idea how, nor have idea how long would it take to rebuild it, but I only hope I would be capable to do this. Well at least I could find (if I would be luck enough) one more half dead Caprice Wagon, and build one out of two Neutral
It doesn't have an engine nor tranny, and no interior parts Sad

Welcome! I think I would put it off to the side and start a search for another one. Parts cars are always good to have.

Well this one is my regular daily driver 1992 Chevy Caprice Classic Brougham
Now it has
350 L05 (right now I'm collecting parts for LM4 all aluminum engine)
8.5" with new OEM G80 Posi and GU4
Impala SS JL9 Brakes
Roadmaster seats front and rear
OCC cluster
almost build Roadmaster electronic climate Sad
1993 Fleetwood dual cooling fan
1993 Fleetwood rear seat heater ducts
1996 Impala SS side rear view mirrors
And hundreds of thousand minor features which wasn't available on Caprices or Impalas, but was available on RM or FW.



I start from this one, in the end of 2008
Regular Caprice Classic Brougham for Arab Emirates


Well I know this car was much easier to rebuild but I had lots of issues too Smile
Hope my wife would be patient enough...

Not so sure I'd be pushing it into the weeds just yet. That appears to be a genuine export spec wagon.

T-84's, headlight washers, swing away mirrors and the remains of a export (or LTZ, as they are known here) hood ornament, just to start.

If you wanted to part with some of those export pieces, I'm sure you would have no shortage of persons on this side of the pond wanting a chance at them.

Welcome aboard  Smile

Yeah you right JaySS! The wagon has extremely rare options. Like headlight washer, fender turn signal repeaters, euro spec seat belts, and OEM tow hooks!!! (I was sure the thing like this was only available for trucks!).
The WGN also has some strange moldings on the fender edge, I've never seen anything like this on b-bodies. There was the same molding on the rear edge of the hood, but it's gone now Sad
I don't really like European style mirrors, so I will replace those with 95-96 big mirrors.
Sad to say, the T84's have been gone long before I got the car.
My regular Caprice also wears LTZ badge, and I have a spare one Wink

I wish I was more familiar with english to get the joke Smile

Regarding the powertrain I'm going to swap out my L05 from my Sedan.
The interior is not a problem either.




Just some shots of my activities Smile










One BAD day!!!






Just a few photos:)

I wish I had all of those left attached to the vehicle Sad
Well the AX4 seat belts buckles are different, those are ugly european, black, plastic buckles instead of polished metal.
Those look like this on, except mine are dirty Smile

BA1 - is a regular LTZ hood badge you might see its remains on one of my photo. And you might see the same badge on the hood of my Sedan. But here is a photo of my spare badge Wink

CE4 Headlight Washer is a rare part only available in Europe. Unfortunately there are only nozzles and some hoses left. No washer pump nor container Sad

DD9 Those are ugly european mirrors GM used for euro-boxy Caprice too

T2J - have no idea what it was! I looked at GM EPC4, and only find T2J notes next to ashtray!
T79 A FOG LIGHT!!! WHERE!!! I wish I knew were to look!!! The wagon used to have euro tails, those are gone by now Sad
I found that euro sedan used had some additional lights on the back, but haven't find anything regarding wagons


T84 - well, I suppose every one in this community know what it means Smile
T90 - you might see a tiny, amber pimple on front fenders, this is turn signal repeaters.
TU8 - they probably doesn't use this light in europe?
UE6 - different switch hmmm... Suspect
V76 rusty but those are still there!!!
