1984 Chevrolet Caprice Classic Estate
While the shrunken station wagons held onto some success in the early 80s, death came in a boxy form in 1983: The Minivan. The runaway success of the Dodge Caravan quickly took station wagon sales, hammering the last nail into the coffin.

COMMENT
The reliable Mercedes wagons can not only be found as the family car, but hard working fleet vehicles such as taxis and other such company cars. I believe the 230 TE was the European equivalent of the American imported 300 T. I have been told this kit is the AMG Hammer Wagon version.

COMMENT
Molded in white, black, grey and clear. Unfortunately this curb-side kit does not include the 560 S-class V-8 engine.

Unfortunately I believe this company is out of business. I would love to make one of these into a US Mail carrier vehicle. More pictures at Dave Lindsay's web site.
