This is 11 of the 12 fat chrome pieces that runs along the bottom sides of the 1984 (&' 83, '85 &possibly other eighties Chevrolet Caprice Classics-they came off a 1984 Caprice Classic that I bought new. The car was garaged. One piece has a small pinch, and others a few blemishes & pits as it was when removed and stored in 1990. See photos. The smallest piece has a lost twin (goes at the far front)
I am listing many items which have been stored in the attic for about 15 or more years. So, some there IS dust on them. If you wish, I can clean them up when I bring then down to ship.
If you are tricking out a car for driving around, you can find the peel and stick, and put it right on. If you are trying to make a Show Car or keep your vehicle Original, then you would buy brand new old stock or have these very inexpensively filled (pits) and sanded (blasting). there are several places around the US or there is a place here I can take it to-see below.
I pieced out a couple of Caprice Classics. I mostly have body and cosmetic parts so check back with me as I try to sell them all.
I also drove a Caprice Classic, which I bought new, for 20 years. I mention this because there are parts, usually small, which always fall off and get lost. These are parts that only a buyer and long-time owner & driver of the Caprice Classic would have knowledge of. Mostly interior except rear bumper fillers that were the first rubber part and routinely cracked and fell off in hot climates.
Check back to see many items as I list them.
I am looking at a blue Caprice. ALL OF THE CHROME PANELS (made to replace the originals lack character and class-"Caprice Classless") ARE CHEAP LIGHTWEIGHT AFTER-MARKET HORRID CRAP. THEY HAVE NO TRIM LINE. IN FACT, THEY ARE SHAPELESS, NON-STAINLESS, CHINESE STEEL. THIN, VERY LIGHT WEIGHT AND WITHOUT THE CURVES AND STYLE FOUND ON THE PIECES THAT CAME FROM A CAPRICE CLASSIC WHICH I BOUGHT NEW. AND, IF THIS DOES NOT TAKE THE CAKE!! IT SAYS IT IS (3M) PEEL AND PRESS ON. What junk!
Any metal/chrome piece can be sand blasted & re-chromed to original finish and pitiless brilliance ALL CHROME AND POT METAL CAN BE RESTORED LIKE NEW!
The charges for filling and sanding the pits are by the hour. Orders must be shipped to the shop in order to examine each piece's condition so the owner can receive an accurate, written estimate. Please contact me for more information.
