1987 Chevrolet Caprice 9C1 police package

Lowered reserve.
Up for auction is a 1987 Chevrolet Caprice 9C1. When in service the car was driven by a captain in Santa Ana P.D., ame out of service in 2009 and was purchased at auction by a retired Monrovia P.D. officer. I bought it from him in August 2011, t which point the mileage was 43,738. In summary, he car is a 3 owner, o-rust, alifornia car. As seen in one of the pics, he car was white when purchased and a little rough around the edges, ut generally pretty solid. The following is what i did to it.4 new (0929/1104) Bilstein shocksnew hood insulation pad4 new dog dish hub capspowder coated wheels4 new Cooper Cobra GT 'T' rated tires (still at 95%)new window sweeps, runk & door sealsnew dash padnew front and rear bumper filler panelsnew front turn signal light lensesnew headlights & bezelsnew corner lightsnew grillnew tailpipe & 50 series Flowmaster mufflernew drivers side spotlightnew A/C compressor & dryernew dome light covernew paint job (2012), ncl. door jambs, runk lid, ood etc. color is 1989 GM PPG 3442 slate gray WA7382
Work done recently:transmission service (new filter, asket, luid)rebuilt carburetorignition system service (replace pick up coil, gnition module)front & rear brake servicedifferential service
Last year, fter discovering coolant discharging from the tail pipe the cylinder heads were removed and a small tear was found in one of the gaskets. At this point the engine was given a valve job, oth heads resurfaced and new head gaskets installed. Also, new heater core was installed, long with new temperature sensor, hermostat and oil filter.
Not so great stuff:A minor 2" ding in the trunk lid, aused by a falling palm tree leaf (!)Corresponding small (approx. 3/4" square) paint chips on each corner of the front bumper filler panel below the corner lightsUpholstery will need attention at some point. It still has plenty of life in it, ut has a tear on the driver's seat and the top edge of the back seat is showing wearRubber flooring has a couple of tears, ut is generally in very good condition, iven the age of the carThe curved, hrome piece of hood trim which runs along the edge of the hood, losest to the windshield, s missingHorn doesn't work.
Overall, would rate the car as being in very good condition. As most of you will know, hese cars are getting harder and harder to come by, specially a California car in this condition and with this mileage (as i type this, 6,297). I don't really want to sell it, ut just have too many cars/projects, nd something's got to go.The car drives and shifts well, uns cool, as no know leaks or problems, ther than the few minor issues listed above.Split bench front seat, ower driver's seat and windows, arely seen radio delete SEOA/C blows cold, eater blows hot, ear defrost works, ll lights, urn signals etc. working. Smogged thru Mar 2016Oil changes given regularly and all receipts and service records available.
Mileage might be incrementally higher at end of auction.
Please feel free to contact me for any additional information or pictures.
Thanks for looking and happy bidding!
***** After some communication with a potential bidder, discovered a minor rust issue in the trunk (see picture). As you can see, here is a hole approximately 1/8" and also some surface rust. The location is the top left inside corner of the trunk (drivers side). I honestly hadn't noticed this before, hich is why it was never mentioned in previous ads. I think it's minor, nd would be an easy fix, nd is in a non-visible part of the body. I would be more than happy to provide more pics if needed. As a result of this discovery, 've lowered the reserve again*****
