Wouldn't have thought that gumball was era correct but I was a little kid in '83 so my memory isn't too keen on that stuff.

Needs an '83 coroner wagon to keep it company in the garage.

They used the gumball until the started using '91 Caprice. Then it was what we called the "flying V".

Probably just a radio. They weren't gonna chase anyone down with 110hp 3.8s.

What exactly was a 9C1 Malibu and how was it different to a civilian car? There were two body styles offered; the 1AT19 4 door sedan and the 1AT27 two door coupe. These cars received a full perimeter frame using higher gauge sheet metal than the passenger car specification. The suspension package was essentially the F41 plus special springs and shocks, front and rear sway bars, front suspension jounce bumpers and the front sway bar was even thicker than the standard F41 offering. Special Police tires and heavy duty 14x6 vented high gauge metal wheels were used as well. The chassis and body had special mounts. The engines used was usually the Chevrolet LT1 350 four barrel or the LG4 305 four barrel. Both came with high capacity 1 quart oil filters.
Even more special gear included a fully balanced drive shaft, temperature controlled fan and a master cylinder-brake booster combo that used a proportioning valve to control the amount of rear end lift in hard braking. All cars used the three speed automatic transmission and had power steering. Other standard police goodies were the K81 63 amp alternator and Special Equipment Option (SEO) Z29 calibrated police speedometer with 2 mph increments.
