Door panels are correct, said undercover. It just doesn't seem right to have an undercover with a big chrome spotlight. I'd definitely say Chief or an officials car.

There is definitely something wrong with this picture.

Looks like someone just had seat covers put on regular Caprice seats (if the boxy 9c1s had different seats?). My brother's old black Caprice had the same seats at that but not with vinyl/pleather seat covers.

That car was on Ebay over the summer. IIRC, it had a pic of the cluster, which said certified (I think) I know it didn't look like the normal box cluster. My guess is they just swapped the seats. Plus it has a spotlight.

They say the car was repainted. The inside of the front fender is a red color to match the seats, just as the factory should have done it. The wheels don't appear to be the heavy duty N97, but its hard to tell in those photos. There are no green silicone hoses either, but of course somebody may have borrowed or changed them. In fleet maintenance any hose would have been replaced with green ones, and once installed, those DO seem to last forever. It looks like there is an aftermarket, non-police car cable from the (+) batt-term to where there is usually a red plastic power post on police cars. The style of those 60/40 seats with folding arm rests is the same as two of my 89 9C1s. I believe some municipalities purchased a number of cars with thrift in mind, so possibly it does not have the 9C1 RPO. I recently parted up a real 95 9C1 from Philly and it was an L99. It was a marked car with the certified cluster and I thought that was odd, but the trunk label verified the combination as ordered. The under-the-hood shots here look identical to my 2 305 carbureted 88 civi LS Broughams, but different from my 88 9C1.

My guess is the car may have started life as a 9C1, after it was retired, it went into a municipal pool and was still fleet maintained (perhaps the reason for the non N97's, non green hoses and weird terminals-thou all of that could have been done post police use. Also, did boxies even get N97's? As for a 95 9C1 with an L99, I was surpirsed to learn the LT1 was the optional 9C1 engine, standard was the L99.

Absolutely correct on the bubble 9C1s. The N97 wheel option started in 1991. Three of the five box 9C1 cars I bought had them when I got them but they were put on afterwards by their civilian owners.
BTW, the L99 is surprisingly quick! Way better than the normally aspirated LB4 (Z) 4.3 V6. (350 missing two cylinders). Eight computer controlled injectors pointing at the backs of eight intake valves in the L99 is vastly superior to the carbureted or TBI versions of the V6 4.3.

I'm not 100% sure if the look the same as the 91+ do, theyre probably just thick steel wheels. Of course someone else in this thread would know for sure lol. Your thoughts?
