1990 Chevrolet Caprice 9C1 Description:

Chevrolet Caprice . Condition is Used.
**Due to some fake bidders, scam artists, and people using fraudulent info, #s, accounts, etc . I am relisting**
This is a 1990 Caprice, 9C1 police package Caprice. It is a former Bay Area CA, black and white marked patrol vehicle turned Yellow Cab. Yes, the miles are high, but these vehicles routinely go well beyond that without issue and still run fantastic (and many of mine personally have). If you know, and/or have driven a 9C1, then you realize that these are not the 'mom and pop' civilian counterpart. The 9C1 is build differently from the ground up from suspension, to engine, transmission, cooling, electrical, rear end, etc..This one even still has all of it's original factory silicone green hoses on it still (I have some from the 1980's that still do as well). 1990 was the last year of the box style Caprice and had a fuel injected motor for the 350 cid option that started in 1989. The difference between a 1989 and a 1990 model, aside from the dubious door mounted seat belts, is that 1990 got a bit of a boost in torque. This particular vehicle runs smoot, has great power and acceleration still, and shifts flawlessly. The only notable problem is that it does smoke some, particular upon start up, almost just like a cold carburetor (even though it is clearly TBI) where it takes a couple of 'pumps' to turn it over . The AC does not work, but the heat and defroster do. It has just had a new paint job over much of it a few months ago, as I was restoring it to a Yellow Cab. Some of the equipment is still in the vehicle, including radio brackets. Has some body dents, particularly on the hood, but the body is remarkably straight and virtually rust free. It has a new battery and metal air cleaner housing; I have changed all fluids (coolant, brake, etc and oil) several times over the course of a short time with limited mileage driving due to the vehicle sitting before I obtained it. I have also just done the plugs, wires, cap, and rotor BTW. I have different sets of OEM hubcaps for it, one pictured, but I painted the wheels and actually thought it looked more like cab without them still. (I can include the hubs pictured if you choose).
CA car, always been in CA. I have MN Collector life-time registration plates for i, as I also live in MN, but most of my 9C1 collection is in CA still. I just have collected too many and must sell some as I am spending more and more time in MN without the ability to keep running the CA fleet. I actually really have too many vehicles and must sell some due to new life circumstances (I also have the very last 9C1 box Caprice in service in all of LA: a LASO unmarked '90 Caprice, somehow released with full cage and radio system, that I may sell as if genuinely interested). I personally drove these particular type of vehicles since they were brand new, starting with the 1986 year model, the very first year 9C1 Caprice. They only became better after that '86 year, and I adamantly believe that the '89/90 TBI year models were the absolute best.

Driver seat is multi-directional working electric bucket. Full original 9C1 vinyl front and back seats with rubber flooring with no holes or tears.

**Due to some serious fake bidders, scam artists, fake NYPD officers, as well as people using fraudulent info, dead people's phone #s, accounts, etc . I urge ONLY serious, legitimate eBay bidders with legitimate accounts to bid. Criminal fraudsters go else where and look to buy an EV, a Toy-yo-yo Preces, or something cute that comes with flowers on the dash. **
