Just going off of an every-fading memory of useless trivia...lol...
Good recall on all of that. I'm probably a little older than most of you, but how about the Chevy Cameo pickups back 55 or 56?

In 1965 the Caprice was a midyear option package on the Impala 4 door Hardtop(they called a Sport Sedan). My dad had one of the first ones. In 1966 it became it’s own model with both a Coupe and 4 door hardtop.

To my knowledge there never was a Caprice convertible. I did own a 1966 Impala SS vert with a 396 and TurboHydro.

Yes, but not in the 60's. The Caprice hardtop back then had a noticeable different roof line, interior upholstery was unique, as well as the center operating instrument console had the addition of of a MAP gauge, and the clock was in a pod at the center atop of the dash. Also, the rear tail lights had a chrome grid over them. However, not to say there wasn't a COPO out there somewhere.

Nice truck. Hope he doesn't have issues with the torque converter in the 8 speed...that's the only issue with the truck at this time....which is a shame. Otherwise awesome truck in my opinion. Maybe the 2018s will have more luck?

Really enjoying my 15 Colorado crew V6.
