Chevrolet listed as Caprice Classic regardless if it is a sedan or a wagon. As for the Caprice Estate usually is part of optional package that has faux woodgrain affix on the side of the vehicle.

No, it's wouldn't be "Caprice Estate Classic", it would be "Caprice Classic Estate". But it's not an Estate since it doesn't have wood paneling, so it should just be listed as a "Caprice Classic Wgaon".

So shall I move to extra info the Wagon/Estate name of all other Caprice? Or were some models with that info in their model name?

Yes. I think, antp, due with the french and other languages structure gotten the word reverse with the english language structure. As for the extra word "wagon" as we call it station wagon compare to british word as "estate".

Regardless with the language of this series of the vehicles, Chevrolet just call them Caprice Classic. Chevrolet call them Caprice Estate with the option package added to the vehicles with the faux woodgrain as part of the packages.

As for the earlier model (pre 1973) they just named as "Caprice". Later when Chevrolet discontinued the Impala series, "Caprice" became lowest price of the series, "Caprice Classic" became mid-level trim and finally Chevrolet added "Caprice Classic Brougham" as the top trim that was introduced in 1986 model year.

Does this help?

Indeed, so it was not like European models where you often have two models, one with "Break" added, and then only trim levels which come after that?

You are quite correct antp. Most model/trim name are the same, but by model numbers/code are listed separately for inventory purpose.
