2012 9C3 silver detective car

Post by 3rd Coast BTH » Fri Oct 29, 2021 10:07 pm

I'm putting my 2012 9C3 PPV up for sale. I have no idea what to ask in price, so I'll entertain offers. This car was a Captain's car in the agency where I still work. I have clear Texas title in my name. The good: Its a very good, unadulterated car. No hard pursuit miles or patrol usage. No extended hours of sitting idling at accident scenes. My daughter has been driving this car for a year and a half. All A/C components were replaced last year with factory parts. ($1,200 worth) No known operational issues. New brakes installed 8 months ago. Car has factory carpet. The only hole is in the center of the trunk where the PD radio antenna was. No stickers were ever on this car.

The bad: The headliner is sagging on drivers side. Stabilitrack fault warning on dash. Brake (fault) warning on dash, but brakes work great! Tire Pressure Fault warning on dash. ABS Fault warning on dash. The car runs, drives, and stops great, or my daughter wouldn't be driving it. One small tear in the side of rear headrest. 160,000 miles on odometer.

Not only is this a rare Caprice, its an even rarer 9C3 unadulterated detective car.

Judging by your previous post about building the old patrol car into a race car, am I correct in assuming you are near Houston? Do you have any ballpark of offers you will entertain? Location and at least some semblance of what you are looking for will make a world of difference. Also guessing this car still has AFM active which at that mileage is quite surprising considering how many people complain about the failure rate.

Yes, I live south of Houston in Santa Fe, Texas and work in Galveston. Yes, this car still has AFM and is bone stock right down to the plastic wheel covers which I rattle can painted graphite gray. (they need touch up) As for price, I'm entertaining offers. I saw several sold on the Iron planet website recently with 150,000 miles that sold for 6 grand, and they were pretty beat up patrol cars with no back seats and police sticker lettering on them.

I just spent 8 grand on engine parts for the race car, and anything I get from the sale of this one will go towards that. I really don't know what it's worth, so that's why I posted it here. Someone will get a good deal on it.

Here's what's happening with the race car:

The race car is part of "Beat the Heat" Intl, a 501-c-3 non profit that teaches kids the dangers of street racing, texting and driving, distracted driving and such. We take the cars to schools and events and yes we even take them to the track. I plan on updating the race car thread very soon as engine work is under way.

I know it's part of the image, but remove that cow-catcher from the front of the race car and you "might" gain a few tenths of a second. I'd think that it disrupts the even air flow over the nose and creates resistance... if you're really trying for times of course, lol! Of course you could compensate with a little nitrous shot... heh.... Now THAT would get someone's attention!

Yes sir, the cow catcher is coming off. The prisoner cage is being removed also. It has been quite a conversation piece with the dummy in the back seat. But yes, the Hurricane is going on a strict diet. I'm also considering a small shot of Nitrous.

The trunk lid is a tribute to the murdered victims of the Santa Fe, Texas school shooting. My daughter was a student there at that time.
