Chevrolet Caprice Estate Wagon
The Caprice Estate, a new station wagon model with simulated woodgrain exterior trim was the first Chevy woodie wagon since 1954. All wagons featured an all-vinyl bench seat interior. A V8 engine was installed in every Caprice. While features such as an automatic transmission, power steering, white sidewall tires, and vinyl top were extra-cost options, virtually every Caprice was built with including them. Although a few Caprices were sold with the new 425 hp (317 kW) 427 cu in (7.0 L) Turbo Jet V8 mated to a four-speed manual transmission, most were built with the more-civilized V8 engines such as the 325 hp (242 kW) 396 cu in (6.5 L) Turbo Jet V8 to handle multitudes of luxury options such as air conditioning, power windows, Cruise-Master speed control, power seats, an automatic headlight dimmer (1965 only) and stereo radios. Several automotive history books noted that a fully optioned Caprice rivaled the appearance, comfort and convenience of the Cadillac DeVille.
