1987 Chevy Caprice
For the 1987 Chevy Caprice Classic, models saw only minor styling revisions after the restyling of the
previous year. All models came equipped with new modern composite headlights and a stand-up hood ornament returned.
A woodgrain applique was used on the dashboards for all models.
The model line-up was slightly revised, and now included a base level Caprice 8-passenger wagon, and a Caprice
Classic Brougham LS 4-door sedan. The Brougham LS featured all the Brougham amenities, plus a padded vinyl roof,
opera lights and LS monograms. Leather upholstery was a new available option for Brougham and Brougham LS sedans,
which also had a new pillow-style seating design and a folding center armrest in the back seat.
The 1987 Caprice engine line-up received only minor changes. The 4.3 L V6 and the 305 cu in V8
were updated with roller lifters and center bolt valve covers. The 305 cu in had a 5 hp
(3.7 kW) rating increase and was now rated at 170 hp (127 kW) and 250 lb·ft (339 N·m). The
307 cu in Oldsmobile built V8 remained unchanged and was the only available engine for the station
Some Canadian sold 1987 Chevrolet Caprice sedans used the 307 cu in Oldsmobile built V8 in place of
the Chevrolet built 305 cu in engine during the 1987 model year.
