Chop Request - Lucerne to Caprice

Recommended Posts

When I look at the Buick Lucerne nowadays, I see a car that fits, stylingwise, much better into the Chevrolet lineup than Buick's. The front end reminds me of a giant Cobalt, especially the headlight shape and the ribbed lower bumper on the base Lucernes. The uplevel Lucerne lower bumper could be a larger Malibu stablemate, with the thin chrome molding and foglamp setup... even the outline shape of the grille could have easily housed a split Chevy grille. And the taillights? The same overall shape as the Buick, divided into 3 segments on each side... instant Chevrolet Caprice. The only thing really "Buick" about it is the grille texture and the Ventiports. Slap in a 3.9 V6 and 5.3 V8, and the deal is done.

I'd like to see a chopped, Chevyfied Lucerne as a production-ready Caprice, in front and rear-end views. It should be a seamless transition, is anyone game?

Cool, thanks so far. gm4, I like your front end, and driver, I like your rear end. MDM, I know you love to go off into custom land, I was looking for something production-ready, but thanks. Anyone else?
