Curbside Outtake- 1973 Chevy Caprice Custom Coupe


While collecting El Camino images for last Thursday’s Streetscape article, I also encountered this ’73 Chevy. It’s hard to miss Curbside Classics when they park side by side…


While I don’t love this shade of brown, it seems period correct, and brings out the lines of this coupe quite nicely. Overall, the owner seems to have a good feel for this era, as the steel wheels and slight body rake attest.


The hood scoop also fits the time and place of this Caprice, and if it’s neccesary to clear the engine induction system, this threatens to be a very quick coupe indeed.
