This is a very original, nmolested, ow mile Caprice Aero Coupe. Examples in this condition are few and far between. It has less than 61,000 miles, nd is in unbelievable original unmolested condition. It's not a pristine specimen, ut it is very nice for its age. It has a few aftermarket replacement parts, eflecting maintenance repairs over the years (fuel pump, /C Compressor, tc.) but is otherwise in very original condition.
Cosmetically the car is about a 7 out of 10. It shows characteristic aging, ut only light wear due to its low mileage. Based on the window sticker it had Ziebart rust proofing early on, nd the benefit of that is evident in the absence of any major rust through. There are some areas where the paint has chipped and surface rust has formed, nd the undercarriage has surface rust typical of mid-west cars (see pic 10), ut the body panels are very solid. The vinyl top is in great with no cracks or deterioration (see pic 7). The exterior paint still shines nicely but there is some sun fading on the hood (pic 8) and the expected nicks, hips, dings ordinarily found in a car this age. The body is very presentable as-is, r could be fully reconditioned without the need for major repair or replace parts.
With the exception of some fading, little cracking on the dash, nd an area of carpet that was damaged during cleaning (pics 19 & 20) the interior looks nearly new. The seats, ash, nd door panels are all original and in beautiful condition. The vinyl is still supple and the cloth seating surfaces are not worn or stained. The headliner is perfectly sound without any sagging or seam separations.
Mechanically it's in great condition as well. It has its original motor and the only significant repair was for a flat cam. The fuel pump and A/C compressor have both been recently replaced but otherwise it is in completely original configuration with no alterations or missing parts. The engine starts and runs good. There are no external oil leaks or major mechanical issues of any kind. The transmission shifts normal, nd the suspension provides luxurious ride.
The brakes function properly and the tires have great tread (see pic 22) and are fully roadworthy. All the accessories, orn, and lights work. The fuel gauge is a little erratic but functions, he lens is missing from the dome light (visible in pic 18), nd the tilt column is a little loose, typical condition found in early GM tilt mechanisms.
