Pretty sure it has spent its entire life in Montana. I’ve owned it since 2016. Odometer showing just under 90k miles now.

Car runs and drives, 80 mph cruise speed on interstate, lights, blinkers, wipers, heater (new core), cigarette lighter, horn all work. Original 14” steel wheels and correct Caprice wheel covers go with it. All windows roll up and down correctly, all doors open/close and lock correctly, windshield has a crack on passenger side.Rear package tray cardboard probably needs replaced.

This is a nice example of a first year Caprice. Pretty sound mechanically, really would benefit from a new base/clear paint job, dual exhaust would help too.

Winning bidder responsible for all shipping costs. I can definitely help make sure the shipping process goes smooth on this end. Or, fly to the Missoula International Airport and drive it home. Clean Montana title in my name.If any additional info is needed, just ask.Car is probably worth more in parts than where the opening bid is set.

Note* Forgot to mention earlier that the 396 in this Caprice is currently running a set of “802” cylinder heads from a 1967 Impala 396. They were completely rebuilt and are set up to burn unleaded gasoline. The original to car “206” cylinder heads with matching and correct date codes are included with the car. They have not been rebuilt.It is widely accepted that the “802” head does flow slightly better than the “206” due to its improved design.
