Those are probably scams...1st post has been deleted, so I didn't see it.

For whatever reason, you could find the same 2 or three ads on CL just about anywhere. One says "I am in the military and deploying so I have to sell" the others all give some sob story about a death in the family and blah blah. But most of them just say 1500-3500 dollars and only have an email contact or will only allow you to contact the "seller" thru CL. Up until about six months ago, if there were 10 SSs on CL, six of them were scam ads for some reason. The 91-96 B-body boys caught on and started reporting them to CL and they started disappearing, but they are still out there. The funny part about the ads, is that the pic was usually pulled off of some 9C1/SS site, and members of those sites kept finding their cars for sale all over the country.

They're all bull****.

If you find a true WX3 SS for less than $4,000, it's probably beat to hell, way high mileage, a cloned 9C1 or a scam. If it's not beat to hell and less than 4 grand, snatch it up.

A 94-96 SS with less than 100,000 miles is still an $8,000-15,000 car. Some with less than 50,000 miles are still going for the original sticker price of 25+

First one was real. I used to see it running around the area. Rough, but real.

Can't say for sure about the second one, but B Bodies are everywhere around these parts. Hell I scored a running driving Cop car for $450!

You can pick up a good solid 9C1 all day for less than 2 grand, especially the "Box", pre-91 cars.

Anybody looking for a nice Caprice would be smart to look at them before the SSs.

Pretty much the same car, (sometimes a lot better) for less than half the money.


RPOs for ya These are all 91-96 Caprice packages, the pre 91 codes are similar I think, but I'm not that familiar with them
L99 - 4.3 (305) litre motor available in 1994-1996 B-body line in Caprice only, usually Caprice Classic
WX3 - Impala SS trim package 5.7 LT1
9C1 - police car package 5.7 LT1
B4U - heavy duty towing package

Cap, the L99 4.3 V8 is actually a 262 cubic inch, not a 305, that'd be the 5.0 liter.

I've got the 9C1 sway bars on my '77.

Here's some more to look out for. There's also one for the oil cooler option if I remember right, but I couldn't find it:

L05 - 350 TBI
G80 - Limited slip
GU6 - 3.42 gear ratio
J55 - Heavy Duty Brakes
FE4 – Special Ride and Handling Suspension
V08 – Heavy duty cooling package (With towing package – 1 mech./1 elec. fan)

305
Production: 1976–2000
Displacement: 305 cu in (5 L)
Power: 130 hp (97 kW)-250 hp (186 kW)
Bore and Stroke: 3.736 × 3.48 in (94.9 × 88.4 mm)


If'n ya wants ta get nit-picky... pirat


262
Chevrolet's second 4.3 L-displacement powerplant; three other Chevrolet engines displaced 4.3 L: the Vortec 4300 (a V6 based on the Chevrolet 350, with two cylinders removed), the original 265 V8 in 1955, and a derivative of the GenerationII LT engines known as the L99 (using the 305's 3.736-inch bore, 5.94-inch connecting rods, and a 3-inch crankshaft stroke




[edit] 305
The 305 5.0L variant of the small-block Chevrolet introduced in 1975 had a displacement of 305 cu in (5 L) with a 3.7350-inch (94.869 mm) bore, and 3.4803-inch (88.4 mm) stroke. Many performance enthusiasts shun the 305 because of the availability of 350 engine, along with the fact that the same parts will yield much more power in a 350 cubic inch package. Due to the popularity of the 350, items like rebuild kits are more expensive for the 305. Still the 305 has considerable power potential to the high selection of aftermarket parts that are readily interchangeable with the popular 350. Not all cylinder heads apply to this engine due to valves having bore interference or shrouding issues with the narrow bore of the 305 engine, but there are many LO3 setups that can produce over 300 horsepower from the right combination.

Induction systems for the 305 included carburetors (both 2 and 4-barrel), throttle-body injection (TBI), tuned-port fuel injection (TPI), and sequential fuel injection (GM Vortec).

The 305 was used in the following cars:

1976–1992 Chevrolet Camaro
1980 Chevrolet Corvette (California only)
1977–1996 Chevrolet Caprice (includes Impala)

Yes the 305 was available in 91, and 92, and in 93, but after 94, if you had a 305 in a B-body, you were sold a pieced together car, as the 4.3 has all the same reverse cooling tricks the 5.7 LT1 has.

By the way, you're missing the A-bodies from 76-81, and G-bodies from 82-88 in your list of cars with 305s. My '76 and 77 Chevelles have/had 305s.

You can build a 305 LT1 if you take the 4.3 block, and swap in a LT1 350 crank, and get you a 305, since the 4.3 has the same bore as the 305, just a really short stroke.

Mine too.

The 305 was more widely used than even the 350 according to some sources. You gotta think about countless pickups, Montes, Camaros, Novas, Non-Chevy vehicles such as Olds, Buick, Pontiac, boats, RVs, etc. RoadCaptain's list is more than a little shy.
