    Pretty self explanatory, ofcourse this website doesnt offer the backglass for the 77-79 coupes, but all the other glass is cover from 65-96, check it out if you need some replacements. http://www.glassrack.net/caprice.html

    Is there a difference between the 80-90 windshield and 79 2 door? They only list like others the 4 door 80-90 for windshield.


    On a side note here a humorous anecdote (Not so funny for me but I'll explain) I was driving down a 2 lane double yellow by the

    northway and the fellow in front of me let not one but two trucks go in front of him.(One a double trailer!) I waited and waited till

    finally at the onramp he decided he needed 500 ft behind the tractor in front of him before enetering the ramp. So I looked, hit my

    signal, stepped on the gas and went around to the left as he was stopped. I go to the onramp north and noticed a SUV in

    familiar blue.

    Well as I hit the Northway I seen flashing lights. I get pulled over and the Officer accues me of "peeling out" . The funny part

    is the peeling out came from the puff of smoke from the tailpipe as I hit the gas. Lol then trid to explain to him that this chevy

    smokes. Not so funny part is he is part of my fan club he pulled me over a month ago accusing me of no sticker (It was in the

    window) I am hoping we go for round three and I will file complaint as I am sure he spotted me from the barracks and followed

    from there. I have nothing against Law enforcement this officer has the wrong idea and the wrong person (I think he had bad

    experience in an old Caprice Police Car lol) is all. He gave me ticket for failing to keep right , that's a first for me or anyone I

    know not involved in an accident.

    To my knowledge there is no difference between 77-90 2 or 4 door, the only option that may differ through out those years is the antennae, 90% if not more had the windshield antennae and (a few had the fender mounted antennae which i think was only for 77-79 models).
