1975 Chevrolet Caprice Classic

The Chevrolet Caprice, from 1971 through 1976, was the largest regular-production vehicle constructed by Chevrolet. For 1975, the car's length was 223 inches and offered one of the smoothest and most comfortable rides by the company.

Chrysler and Ford had done away with their convertibles, while Chevrolet and its GM stablemates continued with full-size ragtops for one last year - except Cadillac which made its 'last' convertible in 1976. The Caprice Classic Convertible had a base price of $5,115, but most came loaded with options in the last year of production. Production jumped 79-percent to 8,349 units for the model year.

The exterior styling of the 1975 Caprice Classic was distinctively new and more elegant. The headlights were 'stepped' to add prominence to the new grille. In the back, the fender skirts accentuated the overall elegant and classic appearance. Body styles included a 6- and 9-passenger station wagon, the convertible, Landau Coupe, Custom Coupe, hardtop sedan, and a sedan. Nearly 104,000 Caprice Classic were built in 1975, making it one of Chevrolet's most popular models in 1975. Over 176,300 Impalas were built in 1975, and 131,445 Malibu Classics, along with 258,909 Monte Carlos. The Nova line was also very popular with 273,014 units sold.

The standard V8 engine in the Caprice Classic was the 350 CID unit offering 145 horsepower.
