    Nice score, man! I have 87 Caprice with 23,000 original miles that sat since 1991. As soon as I get a legal title its going into duty as my daily driver. Mine's a base car with a V6, but I'll be shooting for a 9C1 look. I'll be following your progress.

    Greetings Rollingmullet & all; "Beautiful car man seriously!!" Thank you for the kind words. I seem to have trouble with +quote -reply buttons! Consider looking for an interior out of a up scale "B" body if any can be found? And did GM offer buckets in "B" body's? That would be a great find, brackets & all. Just recover to your taste. I ordered mine with buckets but GM wouldn't build it with buckets unless I spent an additional $400 on exterior trim. I said skip them & took the bench. That't why I ended up with Recaros. I ordered them when the dealership re-ordered the car without buckets. The seats arrived first. Then GM spit it out a second time, No 4 speed trans with the LM1 350 engine. So rather than take the 305 4 speed I re-ordered the 350 inch LM1 & the TH350 trans. Hind sight I should of done it the other way & taken the 305 inch engine? Flip a coin Ole' Bob.

    I've always liked B bodies. I had a lot of fun in a '96 Impala SS and in my '90 Caprice. I'm glad you saved this one from becoming a derby car. I'd love to have one for a daily driver. The car being a 9C1 is cool. Definitely the package to have on those cars. Do you have any definite plans for the car yet?


    Since this isn't a G Body though, I'm gonna move this thread to the "Non-G projects" section.

    Keep us updated on this Impala.
