EXCLUSIVE: 1983 Chevrolet Caprice Station Wagon Survivor

What Makes It Special? This was my mother’s car that she used to make local mobile meal deliveries to the elderly. Low miles, very little surface rust. Car is solid and in great shape.

Body Condition: The body has minimal surface rust but the body is solid. Unrestored at this time. Interior is in great shape, only needs attention on the headliner.

Mechanical Condition: This car is in good mechanical condition, the carburetor may need a little adjustment. Brakes and transmission are in good shape as well.

Clearly, Mark’s mother took great care of this Caprice Wagon! It could use some detailing to look it’s best, but it looks good as is and is ready to be driven. So, would you cruise around in this wagon?

    Too many photos and too much information. Almost overwhelming.

    I strongly considered building one of these as a newspaper delivery car in 1995 when they were cheap used cars
    that no one really wanted. My plan was
    to use a 454 rat motor for power backed by a beefed-up T-400 auto tranny. Out
    back, I planned to install an HD rear end
    from a police cruiser, along with all the
    other HD items to make the car nearly
    bulletproof. They included an HD radiator, HD springs and shocks, HD brakes, and an HD electrical system with
    power outlets located in the rear of the
    car to run things like air compressors and
    power tools. At the time, such a plan made sense. Truck prices ranged from
    $5,000 for a broken down hulk with a bent frame and severe body damage to
    over $27,500 for a base Ford Ranger.
    Such was truck buying here in Florida in
    the mid ’90’s. I reasoned that I could build up a large wagon for half the price
    that would be roomier than any pickup
    truck around. I was just about to start the project when we bought our house in
    ’98. After that, I gave up the idea opting
    for a first gen Taurus wagon instead.
    Even today, I often wonder just what this
    wagon might’ve been like had I built it. In
    fact, every time I see one of these cars, I
    start wondering all over again.

    There must be $6000 in cash under the front seat.

    What concerns me about this car is that its here in Michigan. First thing I would do is crawl under it and look for salt corrosion. Those chrome strips around the bottom of the doors and fenders could be hiding some serious rust issues, similar to the ’84 Olds 98 Regency I owned when I was in high school in 1996.
