Chevrolet Caprice cop car
About this creation






An american stile police car, the chevrolet caprice. I won that miniature toy car of the Caprice, soo I tried to made my own version. It isn`t perfect and for the people who will try to made it, good luck, because is a very hard building. i also udipating a N.Y. police car, wait for It!

The 1991 model had a substantial restyle, replacing the 1977-based rectilinear design with more aerodynamic sheetmetal, although the chassis frame and many other mechanicals were carried over from the previous model. A major influence in the 1991 restyle was the success of the Ford Taurus with its ovoid body styling.[citation needed] While the Caprice was a larger car, General Motors hoped to join the trend towards aerodynamic styling and regain the top spot as America's favorite automobile.[citation needed]


1993-1996 Caprice sedanThe car's styling was not well received[citation needed] and for 1993 there were some styling revisions, the most obvious being the removal of the skirted rear wheel wells in favor of more conventional, open wheel wells. This applied only to the sedan model; station wagons retained the skirted wheel wells until the end of production. The Caprice also received minor modifications to its C-pillars in 1995.


1994-1996 Chevrolet Impala SSIn 1994, Chevrolet revived the Impala SS name by upgrading a Caprice 9C1 with a special grille, spoiler, C-pillar trim, special interior treatment and 17" alloy rims made by ROH on BF Goodrich 255/50/17 tires. In addition, the Caprice got a detuned version of the Corvette's LT1 350 in (5.7 L) engine that put out 260 hp (194 kW) and 330 ftlbf (447 Nm) of torque. In 1996, the Impala SS was freshened by moving the shifter to the floor and analog gauges were in the dash as opposed to digital gauges in the standard Caprice (except the 9C1).

The Caprice's interior had a redesign to level with the Impala's reintroduction, which featured a Camaro steering wheel, digital speedometer and a new console. The rear quarter windows were redesigned to the Impala style in 1995, and new wing mirrors were fitted.

During the Impala SS's production run, the Caprice 9C1 was also fitted with the LT1 engine, and it became one of the fastest and most popular modern day police vehicles. This vehicle established such strong devotion by many police departments that a cottage industry thrived in refurbishing Caprices for continued police service after GM discontinued production of the car.[citation needed]
