I can't get through more than a few pages of searching before I get booted off so sorry if this is a frequently asked question. I have a 91 Caprice wagon and would like to use it on an 82 Caddy coupe. Are these the same or close? I don't have both cars at my house yet to measure anything.

I know the new Caddy Fleetwoods have a longer frame but I've never measured the old style Caddies. I wish this site didn't get overloaded so often. Its a bitch to find anything. I'll keep checking anyone else know for sure?

they wont fit, the caddy frame is longer. Also the Caddy frames from 77-96 are the same, and the Caprice frames from 77-96 are the same as well.

Not yet but its a wagon frame which is a full boxed frame with no C-section in the middle so I was hoping it would fit since it would be a stronger base to start from. Are you looking for a wraped frame? Where you from?

wagon frames usually are differant in the rear than a sedan or coupe to account for the rear floor they have a differant part # than coupes or sedans. :biggrin:
so are you saying that it wouldn't fit?

I don't think the shape of the frame is much different. It will have a different part# since the sedan frames have the C-section in the middle. I think they did a full box on the wagons since they are built to hold 9 passengers and usually do some towing as well.

I'm not to worried about it anyway. I'll just build my wagon and sell it later when I'm ready to start on my Caddy. I just figured it would be cool if I didn't have to wrap two frames.
