    with due respect you are planning to revive a dead beast with severe cosmetic damage

    for a 4000 cc 6 cylinder 90 HP 3 speed auto-transmission American car you will be needing more or less a Japanese equivalent engine, matching gear box to mate with differential. Toyota 4.0L Inline 6 Type 3FE engine or Type 5VZ 3.4L V6 from Land Cruiser will be right choice complete with Sensors, ECU and wiring.

    however - in nutshell whatever you plan to invest it will be waste of money as in Pakistan Caprice is sold by weight for scrap due to scarcity of cosmetic & essential body parts

    Cool car car bro...as capsat mentioned..Toyota is the way forward ...but cng doesn't do to we'll with larger engines..I think you would have to import LPG kit..even then the gas is low quality ...I hate to say it diesel..the two things should be done in my mind ...if it was me I'd stick to American v8.. Carb..gas that instead...

    White Caprice classic black leather top, maroon interior all original 100%, Kuwait war affectee registered in Karachi with S number, aircon functional with OEM engine - is available at a show room near jail boundary opposite new town police station price 150,000.00 that damn thing is there since 2 years the showroom owner's personal car so he is not worried for sale for him it is a momento of his GOOD days in Kuwait.

    The price of Toyota engines will be higher then the current value of car, however I mean no disrespect to the OP.

    ask a scrappie to get you an original chev SB. fits right in and works like a horse. Anything else is futzing about and IMO useless.

    now you have played the serving SHOT - you should have stated this from 1st post. Share with us what type of diesel engine is in your chevy is it complete setup of diesel engine transmission & differential?

    you may only need a Petrol engine to mate with current power train & will quench your thirst for swap from diesel to petrol.

    If you still have the original engine Power train swap it back

    Be wary that cosmetic parts of such GM cars are usually NLA, You might end up "mcgyvering" stuff to make work. The car weighs about more than 3 tons, choose the engine wisely.

    to be realistic these cars were built to really dodgy standards. If you want real american muscle get a proper muscle car not a boat like this caprice.
