Hello everyone. I've been lurking around the sight for a while, and just finally got around to registering. My wife finally let me buy a car (old), and I picked up my '69 Caprice last year. It has the original 350 and 4spd trans. I just replaced the front end and brake lines. The car's a 20 footer, but runs great. I look forward to enjoying the car with the kids, who named the car Rosie.

Welcome to the Team Mike!

Rare indeed I wasn't even aware they still offered a four speed in '69.

Welcome and a very nice and rare find. Yeah Dave 69 last of the 4 speed years but I think they still offered the 3 on the tree option.

For Pa its in good condition, cant say the same for me which I am from Pa also .
