Seller’s Description
$12,500 cash, no trades. Please do not message me with lower offers, or asking if this is still available.

1978 Caprice Sport Coupe (no landau top) 2 door made with the hot-wire bent rear glass, similar to the Aerocoupe. It’s a very highly optioned car, including:

Power Windows
Power Locks
Remote Mirrors
AM/FM/8 Track
Power Driver’s Seat
Climate Control
Rear Defroster
Remote Trunk Release
Tilt Wheel

The engine is the Chevy small block 305 V8. It runs great, drives like a cloud, and the transmission shifts like it’s supposed to. The brakes were recently gone through, and work great.

I’m the third owner of this car; the owner before me was an older gentleman (hence the AARP sticker). It’s always been garaged under my care. Odometer shows almost 29,000 miles, though since the odometer only shows 5 digits, it’s probably rolled over. Regardless, the car looks and drives like a low mileage car, it’s unmodified as far as I can tell, and has been adult owned.

The paint looks good at 10 feet; up close there’s driver-level imperfections. The A/C does not blow cold. The plastic trim/ filler piece between the rear bumper and the rest of the body is gone; replacements are available aftermarket. There’s a couple of missing trim pieces on the passenger side door pull. The sunvisors are worn and fragile. There is a little surface rust on the seams at the bottom of the doors.

Overall it’s a solid example of a pretty neat car. Doors feel like they weigh 500 pounds apiece. Michelin tires with good tread, and the factory wheel covers. Finished in two-tone green with green cloth interior.
