[SA|REL] 1987 Chevrolet Caprice 9C1 Pack

Recommended Posts

FCVP71

Do you like classic police cars? I know one...
rsz_2gallery4.jpg
Yes, it's a 1987 Chevrolet Caprice in the colors of the LAPD :)
I was gone for a while, and now i'm coming back with this project, it fits perfectly the San Andreas era and 1992, when the story began...
After asking Carface for permission and a lot of research I started working on this project. I collected lots of pictures and videos to see how this car have been looked like in the LAPD fleet. Now it's fully autentic from the outside, i'm done with the remapping, the 24 EH Aerodynic lightbar and now the process is continuing with the interior equipments...
I can't find too much source to see what kind of tools and consoles were used by the LAPD back than, so taking CHP, LASD and some movie cars as a sample i modeled a Motorola MDT, a Unitrol 480K siren&lightbar switchbox and a Motorola MaxTrac radio.
Any help with vintage photos or videos are welcome. More update soon!

Thanks again Carface for your permission to the project, the way you made the civilian verison is perfect!

Nice job, I think you should rescale the lightbar a bit, from the screenshots looks bigger than it should.

The Motorola MDT, what I made wasn't used by the LAPD back then, they used another brand...

Nice job, i love the equiptnents, the lightbar lens is a little too tall, if you can scale the height by 20% then its going to be awesome. Anothe thing is the seat textures, you can use the one from my 85 impala.

 

EDIT: I did not realized the screenshot is from San Andreas, the strange aspect ratio makes the lightbar looks too tall, now I think the lightbar needs to be lower a little bit, just like this photo

I don't think that is a real LAPD unit, Carface.

But indeed it could be lowered some.

Nice job with the interior so far.

Note how it has a spotlight in the dash.

@compeast, yeah I know.. its a movie prop, but it uses the same light bar, so im just using it as a reference. I hated San Andreas aspect ratio, it seems its design for really wide monitor.....

Thanks for your reflection Carface, i used very small sized old pictures and the postition of the lightbar wasn't visible so well.

Nice job with the interior so far.

OMG, this picture is gold, do you have more like this? Finally i can clearly see how the lightbar was installed, but i can't decide very well: is the interior blue or grey?

The spotlight what you mentioned is already planned, that and the alley lights will be my next updates ;)

Light blue. The next one is from the Los Angeles Airport (LAX) Police. It has a different setup but perhpaps it could be somehow useful...

[uPDATE]

After analyzing a few videos it became clear to me, that the siren was installed to the place of the original car radio and they used the D&N Unitrol 480K model with the auxiliary lightbar controll switch, so i remodeled the full control head with the mounting bracket and placed it to the correct location.

Also i made a Motorola MaxTrac radio and changed the former model.

Great job! All equipment self made?

This project turns out really impressive. Now that you know a lot more about dem old LAPD, you should do a pack or something. Include the Ford LTD too. People are gonna love it.

A VC version maybe? eh... probably no.

That game needs a proper police replacement, well I'm not making the mod so.

Anyways I love the SFPD one, reminds me of DRIVER days.

That is just awesome! I always found the LVMPD Caprice interesting, and there aren't too many references. Great how you also fancy classics.

Looks great so far, the only problems I could find are that the rear shakes a little while driving and the view looks as if you're driving a larger vehicle.

Other than that, great job!

Yeah, I saw the shacking chassis too after trying. And you might wanna add an NOS dummie, because the NOS came on the bonnet rofl.

But I love the accuracy on this thing. I could make it for IV too, with your assistance. :)

The lightbar on this example is just like the one used by the LVMPD when they had those in their fleet (besides the TwinSonic lookalikes...) [only pic that can confirm this has however been deleted.]
