1988 Chevrolet Caprice Brougham Sedan
Brand new Short-Block, installed March 2015, brand new GM 350 CID Engine Block (now the Engine has less than 6,800 miles), brand new Gasoline tank both costing approximately $5,200.00 also, $10,700.00 Paint job and R&R of all rust with brand new Roofing, brand new Flooring, Windshield and Starter installed September 5 2017. Currently with 118,200 Odometer miles. There are brand new Dealer installed Valves at 35,000 miles, under Chevrolet warranty.
Received the car back in 1990 and had currently been at 35,000 miles - purchased brand new by back in 1988.
To explain the relatively low mileage.-
- Retired since 1998
- Since November, 1990 and until retiring in 1998 commuted by bicycle 3 to 4 days each week (unless there had been Snow) for a total of some 20,000 miles on bicycle
- On long trips, mostly annual vacations, rented a car to use. Also, by far, trips during the years had been highway miles, due to proximity of my home location. Update on vacation in 2017, I am using a "brand new" 2016 Toyota Camry.
September 5, 2017, I'd changed the oil. I'd changed it twice before making it a total of two oil changes into the new engine prior to the new engine reaching 5,000. (New engine's oil changes = three.) During September 2016, I'd replaced the exhaust system and a new battery a new starter had been installed September 5, 2017. During November 2016 I'd paid some $800 to remove and replace all additional rust on front passenger door. The starter had been replaced with a new one September 5, 2017
According to Car Facts, the VIN for my Caprice ERRONEOUSLY shows a junk status in 1996. I just found out (September 15, 2107) when attempting to trade it in for the "new" Toyota. I'd just 10-6-17 wrote to Car Fax including the fact that the date of the supposed junk status listed mileage in the single thousand (six thousand miles, I think.) In fact this car had more than 35,000 miles IN 1990, when I took possession from my dad. How could it have had so few miles in 1996, the purported date of the erroneous CARFAX Report
Current total miles on car is some 118,200
4 brand new Tiger Paws tires had been installed September 5th, 2017
Note. This vehicle has been restored to be virtually brand new at an expense of more than $19,000.00
This is a must see American Classic and everything within works well
