Makes me sick. Black-Cherry over maroon 94 LT1 Caprice at Wrench A Part Austin. Was a CLEAN and rust-free car with obviously low miles. Had wagon stickers, an Impala grill, and even a 94 Whataburger marker in the car for shows. Carpet was beautiful, so clean. Sad!

Anyone know if the power seat track on the driver's side is the same and the one on my '96 Roady wagon?   Once of my motors is sick.   Will nab it this weekend if so!

Holy crap, that was a really clean car. You should have grabbed the grille right away, that's an easy $80 bill.

Does anyone here know if the power seat motor/track would be the same on this 94 Caprice as my 96 Roady wagon? My Roady is not a Limited. One of the motors that lifts the seat up and down is getting lazy, and this car is so clean I bet the assembly on this one is fine.

I'm hoping it would just plug in. Anyone know for sure?

Thanks In Advance!

DID YOU GRAB THAT BACK GLASS!!!!!!!!! I hope you did...because it is a defroster-less one that will bring you good luck and $$$

Damn....

Seat track should be the same if yours is a non limited FYI (which you said)

Nope I didn't grab that back glass, but posted pics on all the wagon Facebook pages in hopes it finds a home before the car gets crushed. They only keep cars in that yard a couple of months before they squash them. Sad..

Thanks for the info on the seat! Will be headed back down there this weekend with a little luck!

Good. I'll take the dash pad,and door panels for starters. Most of the plastic bits,that you deem worthy. Guys,who else wants some good clean Texas parts? PayPal ready,I assume? Oh,and shipping to 47374. I think thats it for me,for now. What a Face

I could go broke buying parts from that car. Dash front, if not broken is worth about $225.

Looks like an insurance total sent to the JY. That was a nice one, too bad it was hit on the driver's side.

You should also get the taillights, rear wiper arm, wing windows, and passenger's side wheelhouse.

If that grill is in good shape, I'll buy it, along with one of the front headrests.

Ok my local B-body folks nabbed the hood, glass, and a ton of other parts this past week. Glad that stuff will not be crushed!

Any chance to buy the driver's side tail light and the cover on top the engine, the one that says "port fuel injection"?

What kind of car do you have? It is not in your signature.
