PostSubject: Found a 1992 NYPD 1A2 special service wagon   Tue Apr 21, 2015 11:32 pm

Hello Everyone,
Its been a long time.
I bought a 1992 NYPD 1A2 Special Service wagon. I searched for a NY car for quite some time and I actually found one in Staten Island. Its beat up and has a rattle can white top coat over the original NYPD factory Grabber Blue but the amazing thing is that it still exists. The previous owner did not paint inside the doors or under the hood so that blue jumps right out. It sat for years and was sinking into the mud in Staten Island when I rescued it. It turns over but its not getting fuel. Looks like Ill be replacing the fuel pump so I can move it around the yard. NY doesnt order their cars blue any more. They save tons of tax payer dollars by going with factory white these days. I know the debate roars on within the different forums regarding the benefits of civilian wagons over Service wagons. I have two of these ( the other is a Philly Car ) and I can say without a doubt they lived hard service lives. Beat up for sure. I guess its like getting a rental car, you just dont take the care you do when its your own car. Anyway, I love cars with history and thats why I bought it. And the fact that they didnt make many Special Service Wagons. I cant imagine all the things this car has been witness to over the years driving the NY streets. I dont know what its function was. Wagons were used when you needed to carry equipment so who knows, Crime Scene, Bomb Squad, canine, hwy inspections,,,,who knows.
Anyway, this amazing car is now safe and free from the mud. If anyone out there has another NYPD 1A2 let me know. I see one or two out there on the internet so there are some fans. At least two.
Have a good night,
Nick in PA

I've seen the photos, it was on craigslist for a while. Glad it was saved by one of us. It has about 50k miles on it as well.

That would be the one. It has 56K on it. It was bought at a city auction in 2005 with 23,ooo on it by the previous owner.
I see you are from NH, how in the world did you notice a 1a2 in NYC? It wasnt advertised as a 1a2 or a police car. Just a white low miles Caprice. You must have the wagon fever pretty bad. I also see that you have a 92 Custom Cruiser. I have one a blue one sitting in storage. I had that car all over the east coast and as far west as Wyoming.

Have a good day,
Nick

Nick,

Yes I found it will I was looking for a wagon, I was searching far and wide for the right one. It was easily identified by the green hoses, and the gauge cluster. I was looking for more of a daily driver at the time (have plenty of projects) so I ended up buying my Olds, which was only 2 hours away.

Don't we all have the wagon fever?
