One of Forgiato Wheels’ many specialties is restomoding classic American cars. What that means is they take in a beaten up old car, replace damaged parts with modern ones, give it a fresh lick of paint, and install custom visual features. That is pretty much what has happened with this 1975 Caprice.
The ginormous four-seat roadster has received not just a set of wheels in this treatment, but also custom air suspension. So it is sort of a cross between a donk and a lowrider. The Californian car culture sure is cool, but it doesn’t always make much sense!
The wheels on this Custom 1975 Caprice are Forgiato Luminoso Street version CANALE-L. They come in sizes up to 34 inches and on here they feature a satin finish. What’s particularly cool about this car is that you have used an extra rim – well, just the face of it – to make the steering wheel. The Caprice also gets a unique Forgiato front grille.
1975 Caprice is powered by a 5.7 liter small block V8 with two- or four-barrel carburetors, depending on the model. The engine, when it was new, was good for around 150 horsepower which these days sounds ridiculous, especially given the size and weight of the vehicle.1975 Caprice Restomod by Forgiato,
