Welcome to My 1975 Chevy Caprice Convertible restoration project page **updatethings have been rather slow this summer, thanks to the increase in gas prices and my lack of income for most of the summer, the restoration has ground to a halt mostly for the summer. Im planning on saving up over the next year and doing everything in one shot next summer ( or as much as i can afford). Ive had to deal with some sobering realities, such as the cost of fabrication for my rotted trunk (since there arent any replacement trunk floors on the market) and the possibility of needing a new gas tank, should a hole be found in the current one once they take it off to get at the trunk floor. Ive also realized how expensive and complex it will be to replace my top, since my current one looks like crap, and probably wont hold for very long.this old picture shows how the car looks when its wet. Its harder to notice the chipped paint when its soaked. but when its dry it looks more like this... I like comparing my 75 with my girlfriends 90. Its funny because they are both the last years of their specific model, yet strangly they look very similar. You can definately see the progression of design from 75 to 90 with this picture... The profiles and shapes of the cars are very similar to, they are both practically the same length too.Despite all the work that i have to do on it, i love this car. there is nothing like cruising around by the beach on a hot summer day with the top down blasting Van Halen.
