WTB: 2nd Gen. Cavalier coupe!
Friday, June 20, 2014 4:18 PM
Hello! This is my first post, I hope I'm putting it in the right place. I have just recently caught the J-body bug, specifically for the 1st & 2nd generation Cavalier coupes. I guess I have a peculiar taste in cars; there are certain little things about A LOT of different kinds of cars that I find attractive. To the point where I begin to fall in love with everything else about the car lol. Something about the old Chevy Cavaliers really gets me, & I think it'd make the perfect new daily for me
I'm specifically looking for a 2nd gen coupe, 4 cylinder automatic. I've noticed some body differences but I haven't been able to narrow down the time frames in which the changes took place. All of y'all will probably know off the bat.



See how the door curves upwards at the base of the mirror? I WANT THAT. 9/10 Cavaliers that I'm seeing for sale do not have that.
Also the vented grille is a must, along with this bumper in the picture. And lastly, the headlight/driving lights. I'm looking for the setup in the picture, where the driving lights are separate & between the headlights.

I have been searching high & low for about a month now to no avail. If someone were able to help out I would be forever thankful I'm looking forward to connecting with this community, as y'all have great taste in automobiles :p

The bumpers & grille are probably swappable now that I think of it, could anyone verify? I'm very new to Chevrolet but I'm assuming that these things would be interchangeable to an extent lol. The headlights/driving lights as well, hopefully at least

2nd gen Cavalier Phase one like the one in your picture is 1988-1990. 1988 & 1989 models came with the 2.0L 4cylinder, 1990 had the 2.2L.
2nd Gen Phase 2 Cavalier was 1991-94



Came with 2.2L 4 cylinder.

Now the 4cylinders are great on gas mileage but are a dog to get up to speed. It'd be worthwhile checking out the V6 cars as well.

The Sunbird stayed the same from 1989-94


Here's a few for sale around you though they are convertibles
