1967 Chevy Caprice 2 Door Coupe 327 V8 - 275 Hp on 2040-cars
Bensalem, Pennsylvania, United States
I have owned this car for over ten years, it was bought locally in January 2004. The car was garage kept when I bought it and I have always kept it inside. I'm not sure if it was garage kept since new. The person I bought it from was not the original owner. This car is basically in the same shape it was when I bought it. I'm sure it was taken care of quite well, I was glad I was able to find it and get it.
I bought it locally so I was able to look at it before buying it. I know that's easier than buying it over the internet, so I will do my best to describe it to you. I don't want to make the car sound any better or worse than it is.
My nephew is doing me a favor listing this car on his Ebay account. He is not a car guy. I don't have an Ebay account or own a computer, but I do have a cell phone. If you have any questions, please feel free to call me. My name is Charlie and my number is:215-416-4702.
The body of the car is straight. There are no major dents or rust. The paint is mostly original, except where some areas were painted over the years. Rust is starting on the lower quarter panels and front fender. Lowers, wheel wells, lower inner quarter panels, floors, and trunk floor are solid and nice. The rust has not been bonded over, just amateur touch up. The frame is good and all the trim is there. It's all mostly in good shape. The glass and vinyl top are good. The rear quarter skirts came with the car when I got it, they are not from this car.
The interior is original and in great shape. There is fraying on the driver side front seat bottom. I changed out the AM radio with an old school two knob stereo which fit right in, The dash is not hacked up.
It is a 327 4bl. 275 HP and runs great. (Smokes a little when it starts after sitting, which is probably valve seals.)
400 Turbo Trans-------SHIFTS GREAT!
Limited Slip Rear-------No Problems
The suspension and brakes were all checked out and gone over a few years ago. The AC blows cold, I never touched it in over ten years.
A few minor things wrong with the car are: a cable that changes hot to cold from heater control is not working (Maybe Stretched) That is why glove box liner is out. I change it manually in summer and winter. A few bulbs are out for the dash lights.
Also included with the sale are:
*Rear Quarter Skirts & Moldings For Skirts
*4 Caps For Factory Rally Wheels
*4 Original Caprice Wheel Covers
*1967 Chevrolet Owner's Manual
*3 Of The 4 Original Interior Floor Mats
*Glove Box Liner
All are in picture of the trunk.
This is a nice, complete, and solid driver. It is not a show car but not bad either. I found it to be a nice find. Having the 327 4 bl. 275 HP, 400 Turbo Automatic, Limited Slip Rear and A/C. Yes there are a lot more options it could have, but most of these old Chevy's were 283 V8s with power glide transmissions. Leave it alone and enjoy it, or it is a complete car to restore to perfect. I had pictures under the car that were deleted accidently, if you are interested I can get them again.Thank you for looking and good luck! CAR IS SOLD AS IS!

GM recalling 118K Colorado, Canyon pickups over missing hood latchesThu, 20 Dec 2012
General Motors has announced a recall of 118,800 Chevrolet Colorado and GMC Canyon pickup trucks due to the possibility of secondary hood latches not being installed at the time of manufacture. The affected vehicles are from the 2010, 2011 and 2012 model years, all of which were built between November 9, 2009 and August 28, 2012.
According to the official National Highway Traffic Safety Administration report, these trucks fail to "comply with the requirements of Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standard No. 113, 'Hood Latch System.' The hood may be missing the secondary hood latch." In other words, owners of these trucks could find their vehicles' hoods opening unexpectedly while driving.
The official recall campaign is expected to begin on January 17, 2013. Dealers will inspect the affected pickups and if a secondary hood latch is not present, one will be installed free of charge. Scroll down to read the official NHTSA report.
Tarantino's stolen Chevy Malibu from Pulp Fiction recovered after 19 years [w/video]Mon, 29 Apr 2013
Quentin Tarantino fans will likely remember Vincent Vega's cherry 1964 Chevrolet Malibu Convertible in Pulp Fiction. In a movie drenched in automotive references, the Malibu is very nearly a character in and of itself, and it serves as the subject of Vega's soliloquy about the kind of man who vandalizes another's automobile. It also happened to be Tarantino's personal car when the film was shot, and was apparently stolen shortly after production wrapped. Now police have located the car some 19 years later.
As it turns out, the thieves cloned the vehicle identification number from another '64 Malibu and had the car registered under the new digits. It was then sold to an unsuspecting buyer. Police happened upon the duplicate VINs while investigating another potential theft. Right now, it's unclear whether Tarantino has taken possession of the Chevrolet, if it has remained in the possession of the fraud victim, or whether it's caught somewhere in the gears of justice. Either way, you can catch Vega's memorable thoughts on the car keying in the Pulp Fiction clip below. But consider yourself warned: the video contains explicit language as Not Safe For Work as it comes.
2014 Chevy Cruze Diesel arrives with 42 mpg for $25,695*Thu, 07 Feb 2013
The last time General Motors had a diesel passenger car in the US, it was the 1.8-liter 1986 Chevette. At the 2013 Chicago Auto Show today, GM is unveiling the much-anticipated 2014 Chevrolet Cruze Diesel. The compact bows with a 2.0-liter turbo-diesel four-cylinder engine that boasts 148 horsepower and 258 pound-feet of torque, with full twist coming on at just 2,000 rpm. What's more, the common-rail, direct-injection diesel features an overboost function that allows the engine to deliver up to 280 lb-ft of torque for 10 seconds at a time. Even with 10 more horsepower and 110 more pound-feet of torque than the available turbocharged 1.4-liter four-cylinder in the Cruze, the 2.0-liter diesel engine can return up to 42 mpg (highway) bolted to its six-speed automatic transmission.
If you're counting, that figure meets the less powerful Cruze Eco with a six-speed manual transmission. More importantly, the auto transmission Cruze Diesel matches its main competition, the Volkswagen Jetta TDI, in highway fuel economy. The Cruze 2.0 TD (as it will be badged) can also handle up to 20 percent biodiesel (B20), whereas the Jetta is rated only for B5. General Motors has not released city fuel economy for its newest diesel, but we do know how much it will cost you to jump behind the driver's seat.
GM will kindly ask for $25,695, plus an $810 destination fee. That marks a $2,115 premium over a loaded Cruze LTZ Auto and $2,640 more than the Jetta TDI, though the MSRP will net you a leather interior, 17-inch alloy wheels and an Aero Performance Package, as well as a two-year maintenance plan and five-year, 100,000-mile powertrain warranty. Compared to the gas-powered Cruze, you also lose a couple cubic feet of rear cargo space thanks to a 17-liter diesel emission fluid tank. That urea fluid, which helps put the clean in clean diesel, will need to be refilled at least every 10,000 miles.
