It’s funny how this works. I find something good and then a short while later I find something similar. After expressing my newly found love for the Caprice wagon I find another less than a week later. And almost EXACTLY like my parent’s was. This one is a shade of cream, if it was pure white it would be a match.
This one is still probably 2-3 years newer though, the aero painted mirrors are the clue. Our ’81 had rectangular chrome-ish ones, the aero ones came later. The woodgrain film on the side has held up quite well.
The painted plastic inserts between the body and bumpers are long gone. Otherwise this one is in pretty good shape. I found this one in the parking lot at Lowe’s. That doesn’t bode well for it’s future.
