I bought a '96 EF11 Falcon Futura in a private sale a month ago.
I took the car on Friday to have the Auto Transmission serviced & the bloke there said this was an ex cop car.
He said it had a Fairmont speedo showing all the speed increments but did not shed to much else as to his reasons.
The car has an XR front end, XR wheels, lowered suspension, bigger sway bars & a XR spoiler. It also has a GT air snorkel. Not sure if it has a different chip but it spins the rubber very easily.

Are there any things I can check to see if it was an ex cop car?

Cheers

If there's something about an ex-cop car that Fuzion doesnt know.... it's not worth knowing, lol.

the compliance plates in the engine bay will be stamped with 'OPT 20' - which will confirm if its an ex-chaser for sure or not :wink:
