For sale in our Chicago showroom is a beautifully kept and maintained 1978 Chevrolet Caprice Classic Coupe. Reacting to the oil shocks of the 1970s, General Motors seriously downsized its full sized lineup in 1977 to reduce gas consumption with lighter, smaller cars that managed to maintain roomy interiors. The third generation Caprice, lightly restyled for 1978, is well-known for its reliable and durable engines and drive trains, as evidenced by its long-standing use as police cruisers and taxi cabs. With only 28,250 original miles, the 305 CID Chevy small-block V-8 and 3-speed Turbo-Hydramatic automatic transmission in this Caprice still have plenty of life. This particular car is one of the rare coupes produced in 1978, sporting an attractive three-pane wraparound rear window, sans the awkward landau top. Finished in arctic white, with a burgundy velour interior and burgundy pinstripes, this Caprice was repainted and received a major mechanical rehab in 2011. Options include air conditioning, AM/FM radio, full wheel covers, power steering, power disc brakes, anti-theft system, and white wall radial tires. The great appeal of this car is that it features all the roominess and style of an antique while boasting the comfort, safety, and amenities of a modern vehicle. Whether you're planning to take a road trip or just cruise to the local drive-in, when you pull up in this '78 Caprice, it's almost a sure bet that friends and onlookers will exclaim, "now that's a nice car!"
