Always wanted one of these, picked one up last Friday.
Needs some work but runs good, drives good, and has some nice upgrades.
140k on it, few bumps and bruises, wife hates it LOL.
It's been lowered, has bilstein shocks, hotchkis sway bars, and riding on 255/50/17 tires.

Fixed some issues yesterday, several more things to come I'm sure.

That's a great starting point. If your sure its a 94 then one of the PO's installed 95/96 doors as you have the larger mirrors. You also have body colored door handles...someone loved that Wagon.

Welcome to the forum.

Thanks! I'm liking it.
Scored a hood & grille @ yard today, probably going back for the fender.

As a fellow '94 Caprice wagon owner I understand the attraction! My wife doesn't hate mine but hasn't voiced any negative thoughts except "you already have a wagon, why do you need another one?"
Good luck with your new project and keep us updated with progress.

She passed smog yesterday!

Replaced a headlight bracket so it no longer flops around.

Fixed the passenger side front power window.
PO had cut a wire, due to a broken lift roller/slide dealio. Some people.
$6 to replace the roller/slider and a butt connector.

Replaced the rear glass struts.

Vacuumed out a few pounds of sand from rear cargo/seat area, and cleaned up interior.
It obviously was a beach/surf mobile.

Today I tried to charge the AC, blown hose, rubbing on control arm for quite a while it looks like.
So, need a hose assembly, accumulator, and orifice tube, before I try again.

Another yard visit today or tomorrow to grab some more parts and a fender.

Welcome to the forum.

Thanks.
I think the doors are the originals, driver's door still has the VIN sticker that matches the car.
Also the tire sticker and the made in Texas by Texans sticker.
There are 2 holes drilled in the front doors by the mirrors, to access a bolt, so swap of some sort?

Be glad you have the big mirrors, the 94's sucked as they were tiny.
