Listings acceptable to post in this section are Caprice PPV's for sale by individuals, government entities (I.E. direct sale/auction/sealed bids), and the occasional car for sale on dealer lots (trade-in's for example) that do not normally sell Caprices. EBAY/Craigslist/auction site ads are OK for the above as well. Please do not post third party ads for cars on behalf of dealers that routinely sell used PPV's as part of their primary business. If you post a car for sale, please add the word "SOLD" in the header after the car sells as a courtesy to other members. Listings by members with under five forum posts may be removed without notice. Also please note our picture size limit of 1280x1024, larger pics may be moderated. Please check with a moderator if you have questions.

Assuming a deal goes through today, my 2012 9C1 with 116k will be for sale. It is all stock except for an axle back exhaust (stock axle back exhaust can be re-installed upon request) and a mild HPtuners tune to deactivate the AFM (the tune can also be returned to stock and AFM reactivated if desired). It drives very well and the drivetrain is very clean with no leaks. It is currently on 2015 camaro 18" alloys with stock caprice tires with good tread left. I would love to keep it, but I have come across a different car I would like to buy, so this has to go.

I would like to get $8500 with the camaro wheels, may go slightly lower with stock wheels only.

Hmmmm..... Don't know which would be the nicer ride, the G8 GT is a 2008/9 production vehicle with a bit more creature comfort but the same basic powertrain as what you have now. You're giving up a 2012 to potentially go backwards four model years. Now if you were getting into a GXP it'd be a different story, but you said GT. You can seat swap from the G8 into the Caprice. So, inquiring minds want to know..... why?

Basically everything I wanted to do to the caprice is already there stock on the G8 without me having to buy/source all the parts. I understand that I can swap most of those parts to a caprice, but that takes time and money. All I am really giving up is some backseat leg room and a little trunk space. I am not worried about the model year difference, the mileage of both cars is the same and I guarantee the G8 has fewer idle hours and was driven easier. I love my caprice, but so far the G8 seems to be everything I love about the caprice plus everything I thought was missing from it. Except window switches on the center console, those are dumb lol
