A guy from our Dutch forum posted this link

http://www.blocket.se/search?caller=...price&offset=0

It is about a Swedish Sales section with lots of Caprices. Can't understand a word of it, but the word "bilder" means photos....

Now this next link shows a very unique 95 Caprice with some amazing weird interior....any of you guys seen this before? Is it a fully Roadmaster interior?

It's a police package (9C1) Caprice that's been converted (with exterior trim parts) into a Impala SS. SEO 1T1 green silicone rubber hoses, certified speedo cluster and rear disc brakes (9C1 and Impala SS only) are the copcar items I could see in the photos. There's probably more I could pick out if I saw the car. The interior has been upgraded obviously, and nicely done.

Uh Imps only got the rear discs standard, and the Certified Speedo and Silicone GREENIEs were 9c-1 only (unless you special ordered an Imp with them) [img]graemlins/5.gif[/img]

Looks more like someone wandered over to our site and preformed the mods/ or he could have had it imported like that, truthfully though the only things Imp related would be the trunk badge and the grille. Everything else is 9C-1 Caprice or Standard Roady....

Hmmm let see they have clean versions of our cars over there

They are smoker friendly and they have some serious Honeys over there [img]graemlins/3.gif[/img] Hmmm Looks like I'm moving to Holland

Wrong. As I said already, Impala SS and 9C1 Caprice all got rear (and front) disc brakes.

I know of zero Impala SS's that were factory ordered with the U11 certified cluster or the 1T1 hose package. They're easy add-ons but I have yet to see a SPID that shows that they were factory-ordered in the manner you describe. The Impala SS dealer brochures did not show them as orderable options, so the only way someone could have done that was if:

1) the buyer knew about the police 9C1 parts, and the ordering codes for each item (U11 and 1T1), AND

B) they would have needed the dealer to special order the car with non-standard and non-optional parts (for WX3 Impala SS).

Not impossible (especially if you lived in TX and had connection at the Arlington TX factory), but also highly unlikely.

It seems that he has heavily shopped on Ebay. That's what I do when I need parts or other stuff.

I got the green sillicone hoses through a buddy of mine here on the forum. Just need to install them.

Uh again wrong all 9c-1 Caprices had rear drums as a standard option as with the L-99, both the Rear discs and LT-1's were options

http://www.9c1.com/brochures/1994/94_9c1.pdf
http://www.9c1.com/brochures/1995/95_9c1.pdf
http://www.9c1.com/brochures/1996/96_9c1.pdf

If not then I guess 9c1.com has the wrong info posted for all of those years.

I have talk to local Troopers and afew others that I have met over the net that specially ordered their Imps for Police Duty, couldn't tell you if they had the certified gauges but they did specially order them with the Greenies/electrical connections for AUX lights/etc..

Yada Yada - You are wrong. I did not even hit the link you reference, because if I did it would not change the fact that *ALL* 94 -96 9C1's came with rear discs. Period.
Also, I saw in another post where you infer the cluster speaks differently with the pcm w/ regard to obd1/2. Wrong. All 94-96 clusters (with the exception of the 96 Impala clusters) are *INTERCHANGEABLE*. The 96 is wired different to use a tach (4 cylinder at that!)There is *no* data bus/ what-not going from the pcm to the cluster that the pcm has to talk with. It's all analog, and as I said- *interchangeable*.
Don't know what problems you ran into with a cluster, but it had nothing to do with obd 1/2.

I *highly* doubt a WX3 came with the greenies. Plenty of people have switched, but show 1 spid sticker with those, and you would leave plenty of people slack jawed.
