Mystery Car Revealed – A Last Year Caprice LS Brougham

I thought I had you all fooled with this one, as I thought everyone would have guessed a Chrysler 5th Avenue. However, within the first 45 minutes after the posting went live, dukeisduke guessed correctly that is was a Caprice Classic LS Brougham. Many of you noted that the car didn’t have the LS decal, as I “shopped” that detail out of the picture. By the way, this modification was performed by American Sunroof Corporation, who was also responsible for the Chrysler 5th Avenue modification.

Like I said, this car was purchased by a friend of mine at an Estate Sale, with very few miles, and in great condition. Look for a “Test Drive” of this particular car in the very near future.

    My girlfriend circa 1990 had an '88 LS Brougham in black with a dark red plush cloth interior. Not a bad cruiser, though it certainly wasn't my style at the time. Just don't try to push it in corners. GM's idea of a optional gauge package on the Caprice was temp and fuel economy (vacuum) gauges.

    Jim, it is Broughamlicious, and I look forward to 'Test Drive' silliness.

    I is confused. Are the 2 photos of the same car taken at different times of the year or is his the one with the missing lando-calrissian top in the first photo with the snow in the background? Is that bump-out for the rear glass stock? It reminds me of the extra tall section of rubber above the rear glass used to raise the roof (woop-woop) of the DS21 otherwise no one taller than 5'-3" could sit in the back.

    Gotcha. Thanks for the explanation. I secretly would like to pilot a land yacht like that as a DD. It would sure be more enjoyable than the bus right now.

    Back when I was a cabdriver in SLC, City Cab used these almost exclusively. Man, they were almost impossible to kill, especially the cop cars. We'd get about a half million miles out of them, hard miles, too. We would beat on these Caprices mercilessly, and they just kept going, two shifts a day. These cars will take a beating, believe me.

    I didn't know that ASC built the Brougham, but it makes sense, especially seeing the way they pushed the window out to meet the cap. If it my my car, the first thing I'd do is take off the ventishades and the mudflaps.

    The spacer that the backlight is attached to, what's that made out of? Fiberglass? It's funny, but it reminds me of a picture tube.
