10k: Hot Rod: 1984 Chevrolet Caprice

The third generation Chevrolet Caprice Classic was introduced in 1977 as
a lighter and leaner version of the previous full sized Chevy sedan. 
The reduction in weight was in response to fuel economy concerns but it
brought with it a better vehicle the dynamic sense, not that much could be worse than a 70s era full-sized Chevrolet.  This next feature isn’t your average Caprice, however, since it has been heavily modified.  Find this 1984 Chevrolet Caprice here on eBay currently bidding for $11,500 starting bid with a $14,250 buy-it-now, located in Weatherford, TX with a few hours to go.  Tip from Chris B.

The Chevy Caprice isn’t a particularly collectable automobile, and frankly
most that have had any money put into them are turned into some kind of
heinous looking “donk” and the stock ones are going to be boring (at best!) to drive.  This Caprice however, has been given a complete power/suspension/brakes/wheels makeover while keeping the original paint/chrome intact. 

Power in this modified Caprice comes from a 383 cubic inch stroker V8 that has built internals, AFR cylinder heads and a whole bunch of bolt ons.  Everything fits nicely under a stock style air cleaner and you might miss the insanity if you blink. 

The seller has installed a GT Grant steering wheel and some kind of aftermarket gauges, but left the plush Elmo hide seats/carpet/door-cards alone.  The transmission is a built 4L60E auto that is built for going fast in a straight line.
