As per title, just wondering how you would tell if you got an ex cop car.

I know theres a few things that vary from state to state....but what the f**k are these things??? so i can cross check them.....

Any info on identifying, would love to know....cheers.

Chances are it will have a close increment speedo and some extra wiring still installed.
I recently worked on a WB ute that was an ex chaser and beleive it or not all the wiring for the extra lights was still in there. Seems that when they sell old cars off they just cut the wires at the lights and repair the holes.

If its 'cop spec', it should have OPT36 on the right hand bottom of the build plate. Keep in mind this photo was taken from an XF so the may be different from an XE.

My mate has an EL Futura ex cop car (OPT 20 stamped on the compliance plate) and if you look closely you can still see the outline of the numbers on the roof.
