Shoot, for $500 you could buy it and part it out and make money.

But that's also a pretty inexpensive start of what could be a project that's alot of fun!

I say go for it!

I don't know any Caprice websites off hand, but I'm sure they're out there.

We have a Buick Roadmaster. In case you didn't know Impala SS, Caprice and Roadmaster are B Bodies. If the interior is shot and you want to make the cars interior more luxurious don't rule out picking up seats from a roadmaster. I think these car are easy to work on. Hell the entire front cap (core support and inner fenders) can be unbolted. Here is a good site for B bodies

Is the car a 305 or LO5 350 ?

92 it should be the LO5 350. Check and if its not there install a small tranny cooler. I put the B&M cooler on ours.

He said its a rebuilt motor so no need to look for stock stuff. The cruisers are a good place to start. They usually have beefier suspension, and they have 2 extra body mounts over an Impala SS (common swap for an SS is adding these extra body supports from cruisers. Drop it a tad add the SS grille Wheels (widened in the back if you can swing it) and spoiler (not to try to pass as an SS unless ya want to but the SS gear IMO look much better). If its a DD I wouldn't go overboard with mods just a good exhaust with headers and better intake tract will add more power but should also improve gas mileage provided you can keep your foot out of it. Another common interior swap is Bonneville seats ( don't know why but its common to alot of SS owners).
