    Looks and sounds really nice! Opening price is more than reasonable.

    I'll be super interested to follow bidding on this CE - it's certainly starting on the low side. Can't tell for sure from the ad photos apparently taken at dusk, but it looks like it is this great 1975 GM color called Medium Orange Metallic, as seen on the Caprice convertible below. Very eye catching. :thumbs2:

    I'm "watching" this one too, but not as a potential buyer. Since moving, I lost about a foot of space in my garage (long enough for a pre-or-post clamshell wagon though!) This has a "SAN DIEGO" bumper sticker; wonder how much time if any it spent here. Photos of the interior would be nice.

    Far away pictures, no interior pics and really a generic description.

    Best evidence of 3rd seat. (Look closely as to split 2nd seat.)

    If the VIN is provided, which it is in the description, the "45" as the third and fourth digits in the VIN tells you it's a Chevrolet 3 seat wagon.

    So far, this looks like a super bargain re: price. That said, interior photos would be appreciated. :cheers:

    I posted a question about the interior/request for photos. Seller responded by saying they are forthcoming.

    May be an optical illusion, but both the driver side and passenger side front fenders woodgrain look lighter than the rest of the car. I like the paint color and the car looks clean.

    I'm not a fan of the lack of rear load floor carpet on some of these caprices and impalas.

    Interior photos - it does look exceptional. Has the optional cloth upholstery.

    Clean as a pin - and it is the beautiful GM burnt orange paint color!
