Well, if the TBI 305 ever needs to be replaced (car has 94k miles), it'll be replaced with a 5.3L.

I swear you really are my brother from another mother or something. Get out of my head!

I have the exact same plan for my 91' Caprice if the LO5 ever dies...only 58k right now, so it might be a while, lol.

Car looks super clean! What've you got in mind for mods, if any?

The resemblance is uncanny! lol

Mods planned are few, I want to ditch the mechanical fan for an electric off a tow pack car, takes forever to warm up right now.

Eventually, I would like to do a 5 speed swap.

There's no such thing as a B-body Impala (or Caprice) with a 5-speed manual.

You're right. There is the f2b kit which allows you to bolt in 4th gen Camaro pedals, pricy however. My plan to is get a 98+ S10 NV3500, since the shifter location is ideal, the gear ratios are decent, and they can be had cheap. The slave cylinder is the same as a later T56 so I can use all Camaro hydraulics.

I'd like to lower it a little, this height would be perfect.

Ford rear sway bar installed today. The components that went into the install:



17mm rear bar and new endlinks scavenged from a junkyard 98 Mercury Grand Marquis, and Prothane universal 17mm bushing kit. Fairly easy install, hoping it'll tighten up the handling.

I love it!

I actually had no idea Oldsmobile had a version of it. My aunt used to have a wood panelled Roadmaster back in the day.

Does this one have air ride in the rear?

My friend's father had a Caprice wagon with the police package, which I guess was a rather rare beast, but I remember it having a real neat rear suspension setup.

This would be the perfect vehicle for a killer sleeper.

Yup, and I much prefer the Oldsmobile version. Vista roof without the woodgrain or flashy chrome trim.

No air ride, this is actually a low optioned OCC. Still has a tach cluster tho which is great.

The police package (1A2) Caprice wagons are quite rare, GM only sold around 200 of them every year from 91 to 96. I found one for sale in NYC, it had 50k miles but looked like it had been sitting in one spot outside for a long time. I wanted a driver not a project so I skipped it.

Also, went yarding the other day and picked these up. Very rare blue Bonneville bucket seats.



I got the rear seat too but it needs extensive work to fit in. Shouldn't be an issue tho.

Looks good! Looks like we have the same color interior...I really need to find a blue OCC bezel so I can run a Caprice LTZ digital dash (I've got one) or the OCC cluster with the tachometer. The cluster I have is different since the idiot lights aren't part of the cluster itself.

This is what you need:



Looks like:



Bezel from a LTZ/9C1. If you use the OCC/Roadie bezel you also need the dashpad out of the OCC/Roadie.

Ah, that's right, I had forgotten about the dashpad difference. I hit up a few junkyards trying to find a matching bezel, but no luck thus far. Anyways, I shall quit jacking your thread.
