RealRides of WNY - 1987 Caprice

This 1987 Chevrolet Caprice Classic Brougham has a name almost as long as its lineage. The full-sized ’87 Chevys were still using the same basic design that was introduced when the big cars were first downsized for MY 1977 — and they’d hang around until the new jelly bean-shaped 1991 models would bow. Chevy called this Caprice Classic Brougham “The ultimate Caprice. With all the elegance traditionally associated with the designation ‘Brougham.’” Well, maybe not all the elegance. That would have meant advancing a step up the Brougham ladder to the Caprice Classic Brougham LS, which would have added “The hallmark of LS elegance… the Landau-style half-top and inset rear window. Other features include bright roof moldings, center pillar opera lamps, tinted glass and dual outside mirrors” (see photo at bottom of page). Saw this white four-door over the summer at the Polish Falcons Super Cruise in Depew.
