1988 Chevy Caprice

Written by Edgard Zuniga

1988 Chevy CapriceWhen Ted Musson, owner of The Wax Shop in Rochester, New York, viewed one of the East Coast Ryders DVDs, he was so impressed by the bigger-than-life cars that he was compelled to obtain one of his own.

East Coast Ryders were more than willing to help Ted when he called them up and told them he wanted to build a car like that. “A car riding big, on big rims,” said Danny Perez, CEO and founder of East Coast Ryders. So, Ted went and bought a 1988 Chevy Caprice from a nun in Texas. The Caprice only had 40,000 miles on it and was in mint condition.

Ted then shipped the Caprice to Red’s in Miami, Florida to have the suspension lifted to fit 28-inch wheels. From there, it was sent to Noel’s Mufflers in Opa-locka, Florida to have a custom exhaust built and installed. The Caprice was then shipped back to The Wax Shop, where it was completely stripped and painted House of Kolor Violet Kandy over a silver base coat.

Meanwhile, all the suspension parts were sent to SPS Chrome in Hialeah, Florida, where they were given a triple-dip chrome treatment. Whatever wasn’t chromed on the suspension was painted to match the car.

The car was beginning to come together, piece by piece, including the interior. At The Wax Shop, the seats were wrapped in white Coach fabric and purple suede, the headrests and dashboard were wrapped in white ostrich and the headliner was also wrapped in white Coach fabric.

Back at The Wax Shop, the original 305 engine was swapped out during painting for a Chevy 400 small-block with a blower, Weiand 6-71 supercharger and two chrome Holley Dominator carburetors custom built for the blower. Aluminum March pulleys were also added to form a one-belt system. All this amounts to a little more than 600 horsepower. To ensure the engine would go and show, it was also painted.
