Welcome Gwen.

The car really does not look all that bad as it is.

Other than the body work you say you will do, what other repairs are you planning. ?

Some things are better left unsaid, which I generally realize right after I have said them.

Now I really work on the bodywork, I found two doors and a tailgate of chevy caprice here in france, lucky for me
It's been 2 years since she is with me, she at 145000 miles, I remade a lot of mechanics on.
new rods, direction arms, control wheel, suspensions and I install a rear airbag suspension !
it's a very nice car, I use it all the time, it's my daily driver

I see.


How did that vehicle make it to France ?

Did you import it ?

thanks RYD SLO, I chose the original colors but i have a doubt for the original Gm reference :

below the bumper it's color "gunmetal" WA9243
and the up it's "Dark maple red" WA9078

I don't have the VIN option stickers

Someone could confirm me the colors ?
