EBAY/Craigslist/auction site ads are OK for the above as well. Please do not post third party ads for cars on behalf of dealers that routinely sell used PPV's as part of their primary business. If you post a car for sale, please add the word "SOLD" in the header after the car sells as a courtesy to other members. Listings by members with under five forum posts may be removed without notice.

This is a retired municipal vehicle which I purchased second hand. The car runs and drives great and I have logged 4,500 trouble free miles since purchasing it in March. I found a Tahoe PPV that I would like, so I am seeing if there is any interest in this car. The car is located in the Metro Detroit Area


This car is a great platform to build a 4 door family hauler from. Plenty of rear seat legroom and a huge trunk.

68,XXX miles
6.0 L77 Chevrolet V8 Engine
GM 6L80E transmission
OEM 2012 Chevrolet Camaro Rims
New Delinte D7 (Front) and 275/35/20 (Rear) tires.
Used Pontiac G8 Front clip installed
NEW ZL1 Leather Wrapped Steering Wheel
Chevrolet 2014 SS Center Console
Chevrolet SS Carpet and Floormats have replaced the factory rubber floor... the carpet fits good but does come up about 2" short in both rear corners by the passenger seat......its still better than the old rubber taxicab/copcar floor.
28% window Tint all around except windshield (No tint on windshield).

The vehicle was involved in a light front end fender bender. There was NO Airbag Deployment or frame damage to the vehicle whatsoever. It was listed as requiring a tow after the accident since the radiator had a leak. The vehicle has a clear title.

Between the time of the accident and when I came into possession of the vehicle, the front end sheet metal (hood, fenders and bumper cover, supports, radiator, lights etc...) disappeared from the vehicle (approximately $6,800 worth of parts). I reassembled the vehicle using a donor Pontiac G8.

EDIT: I HAVE ALL THE PARTS TO DO THE COMPLETE CONVERSION FROM DASH SHIFTER TO FLOOR SHIFTER, I WILL INCLUDE THESE WITH THE SALE, BUT NOT IF IT IS A LOWBALL PRICe.. PIECES INCLUDE A FRONT DASH SHELL, SS SHIFTER AND LINKAGE. THIS WILL make the center console look like a factory install, but for now here is the description since it is not installed. The center console in this vehicle is from a 2014 Chevrolet SS sedan. It looks good but did have some gaps where it meets up with the stock Caprice dash. I wrapped some vinyl panels to fill these holes. Also, there was a void where the floor shifter would go, I put a plastic storage tray in this area. Once again, it is not perfect but is 100x better than the stock no console of the police vehicle.

The car is in good shape. It does have the usual scrapes and dings that come with most municipal vehicles. The most notable are the scratches on the passenger side corner of the rear bumper cover and a 1/2" long dent at the lower portion of the passenger side front door. The car looks great as you can see in the pictures, but it is not a show car by any stretch of the imagination. This car still has the ability to draw attention and questions from people.

The vehicle does have several exterior antenna holes and light holes which have been plugged with plastic caps.

All the looks of the G8 with an updated 2014 interior & MyLink!

Price Drop to $14,999. I'm close to my bottom number at this price. If it does not sell before October I will just put storage insurance on it for the winter. I also had some times to add more upgrades to the car.

Added OEM GM CHrome/Painted door handles
Added OEM used G8 Rear Decklid Spoiler
Had A pillar spotlight holes filled and painted.
