Description

Lot #351 - This Caprice is an original L36 427V8 car (390hp/460lb-ft), highly documented and retaining its original Protect-O-Plate. It had just one owner until 1996, and has had only three owners since, most recently as part of the Blake Nordstrom collection. Beyond the rare engine, it is highly optioned with factory Air Conditioning, Cruise Control, automatic high-beam dimmer, Power Steering, Power Brakes, AM/FM pushbutton radio with front and rear speakers, plus vinyl roof, wire wheel covers, auxiliary instrumentation, all Soft Ray glass, and front and rear bumper guards. The car has relatively low original mileage at 94,515, and it comes with an organized notebook of documentation that includes the aforementioned Protect-O-Plate still affixed in the original warranty booklet, the original down payment receipt from when the car was ordered, the original March 31, 1966 title application, State registration and inspection documents from 1968 through the mid 1970s, early driving log notes, and additional maintenance invoices, in addition to full receipts for sympathetic restoration work that was carried out in 2008. Also included is the original owners manual in its original plastic sleeve, and even the original paper folio from the dealer.
