    WTB: '79 2-door

    Great Site! Hope it takes off! Like the title says, I'm looking for a '79 2-door, more specifically a Caprice Classic with the vinyl top trim piece behind the quarter glass. PM me price, location, leads or post directly. Thanks!

    So are you looking for a landau or just the base model with an optional partially covered vinyl top? I will definitely keep an eye out. Just thought id point out that it took me close to two years to find my car, they are getting so hard to find.

    I had a '79 Caprice Classic 2-door from '94-'04 and never should have sold it. It was my first car. Anyway, it was midnight blue color with a lighter blue top (two tone) but not a vinyl top car. However, it did have the vinyl top termination trim piece between the quarter glass and the back window. I painted the car Dodge Viper blue and installed a full white vinyl top on it. I know where it's at, just can't get the guy to sell it back to me, so I figured I'd just find another one. Apparently not as easy as I thought it would be.

    FOUND ONE!!!!  I'll have pics when I get it home this weekend.  I got her for $900.  It's a maroon '79 350 2-door.  It's got some light passenger fender/headlight damage and sports a front bumper from a later car.  The motor knocks and the transmission is missing, but the frame/body are solid which is all I care about.  The rest is just details.  Looking forward to this build.
