1994 Caprice Classic LS 9C1 Rare?

I recently took possesion of a 1994 Chevrolet Caprice Classic LS 9C1 from my grandfather. I always wanted the car but after doing some research about the car, I wondered how rare a fully loaded Caprice Classic LS was with the 9C1 package. I believe the story on the car was a dealer ordered a city/police cruiser and when it arrived it was wasn't what the city had ordered. The dealer then sold the car to my grandfather for a fair deal to move it off the lot.

Are the more Caprice Classic LS 9C1 with leather, power everything, tow package, and a LT1 out there? Am I sitting on a unicorn? Or is this just a nice, clean version of a common vehicle?

The tow package was never offically compatiable with the 9C1 cars. Your best bet is to take a photo and post it of the SPID on the trunk lid that lists all the RPO code your car was built with.

Some things to keep in mind:

V92 Tow Package LT1 cars have a passengerside clutch fan

9C1 cars have green silicone coolant hoses and a single silver headed key for all locks including ignition. The word "Certified" is printed on instrument cluster, just below the digital speedometer.

Agencies often order a loaded, leather equipped, pursuit vehicle, for the Chief / Sheriff.

The single key was an option on 9c1's. I have 2 with it and 1 without.

I went out and took some photos of the car. Sorry to for the awful images. It is in storage for the winter.

One of my questions is whether this car is actually a 9C1. According to the VIN it is but according to the parts id sticker in the trunk it is not. I really want to figure out some of the history of this car. It belonged to my grandfather and I hope to hang on it for a long time.

There's no 9C1 code on the SPID, you have a retail Caprice. Still nothing wrong with having a sweet Tow Package Caprice Classic like yours

There is no VIN for 9c1's. If it has an LT1, it is a B4U. Look for that on the SPID sticker. That is the sport/tow package. The single mechanical fan is another tipoff.

It's not a 9C1. Do the seats have steel plates in the back? Does it have rear disks or drums?

Nice Caprice but its not a 9C1

The Spid tells all. As stated the car is a B4U or Tow Package Caprice. It has an LT1, and Posi rear end from the factory (G80).

Looks like a nice clean car.

There were a small % of fully loaded 9C1's built. I personally drove a couple. I vividly remember a Black on Grey leather 95 9C1. It had all the SEO options with Civilian Leather interior and carpets. Really wish I had bought that car.

Very nice 94 B4U Caprice. Has the QMU black side wall tires like my B4U.Much less common most were white wall tires.
