A little preface is necessary, this vehicle is currently fitted with operational blue lights/emergency equipment. Any sale will be dealt with very carefully, and adhering to various ACPO guidelines and rules.

This vehicle can be offered without any police equipment, as a standard vehicle if desired.

'OV03 LJL' is a Vauxhall Omega 3.2 V6 Special Manual saloon, presented in Black Sapphire Metallic (Z20R) with 'texas' grey cloth interior.

It was registered on the 1st of May 2003 and has covered 140,021 miles from new.

When new, it served with Thames Valley Police, as a Roads Policing pro-active unit. It was based at Three Mile Cross (Reading)
It was featured on Sky TV's Road Wars. When in service, it wore the ghost plates 'GM03 HYU'. Fuel card holder present with this registration.
It was used by Rosie and Daz, in the mid to later RW episodes.

I acquired the vehicle directly from TVP in late 2010, I then sold it, and took it back in P/X in mid 2012.

Over the past three years the vehicle has had a lot of money spent on it, restoring it back to as it was in service, alongside regular maintenance and improvements.

Police spec;
Whelen 500 series grille mounted strobes, with strobe power supply
Fend off front bumper mounted whelen 500 series blue LED with clear lenses
Whelen Alpha Siren, horn ring incorporated with wail, yelp and piercer tone
Rear head rest mounted whelen 500 series blue LED with clear lenses
Rear parcel shelf mounted LED flip matrix sign 'POLICE / STOP'
Correct 6 roof mounted antenna
TSS Autovision ANPR System with speed enforecement and windscreen mounted camera
ANPR in-vehicle keyboard
Cleartone CM9000 Tetra Police Radio with correct telephone style handset and cradle
Maglite torch with mounted holder

Maintenance;
Full police history to 115,000 miles. Sold at 115, came back in at 126,000 miles.
In my ownership it has had;
Full cambelt kit, water pump with aux belt and tensioner fitted by Daz, mileage 137,000 approx 8 months ago. Exact mileage and date TBC, but Daz can confirm
New clutch at 135,000 fitted by Al
New air con condenser, HP and LP valve - Air con works
Full service, oil, filters, plugs, etc x2
Paintwork - Photo's of paintwork will be uploaded, but it had extensive paintwork. This vehicle has been displayed at numerous shows, so needed to look presentable.

It now even features in a PC Game - Grand Theft Auto 4, see youtube link;

MOT - None currently, will be supplied with a full MOT
VED - No longer transferable

Generates enormous interest at shows, even more so than the marked police vehicle I have. This is to be replaced by a younger 2012 vehicle. Interior photo's will be uploaded tomorrow!

2,500 with police equip
LED sign is worth approx 500 on its own, some of the prices are crazy!

How much without the very-very-very-cool-but-can't-drive-it-on-the-road kit on it?

Limited slip diff still present and correct I presume?

Good question!

I won't bore you too much with the legalities, but simply, when the fuse is removed for the control interface none of the emergency equip can be operated. This fuse lives in the boot, so can't be tampered with when driving. All lenses are clear, except the strobes behind the grill, but these can't be seen normally. So, it can be legally driven with fuses removed.

Limited slip diff present, and fully working!

Price for standard car, I guess would depend on if you wanted stuff just removed, leaving holes i.e. as a straight from service ex police car. Or holes filled, painted, interior trim replaced etc?

I would ideally want to achieve 1,500.

Feel free to PM me if interested  :y

Having seen this in the flesh, it is very, very tidy. Best of luck with the sale JW, MrsGK is currently debating how much she'd get for various organs...

Get your money out, you tight wad. You know you want it. Think about all the admiration you would get at Wycombe.
I did suggest getting rid of one estate and having it, but she is not going for it. Dead in the water for me :'(

As much as I would like too,I really in all honesty cannot take on a 4th car as I'm struggling with the three that I have,it's not a practical every day driver and it needs someone to take it under their wing and preserve the car as is. I really wouldn't want to see it stripped of its identity or even some chav buying it to drift it until it gets destroyed. The only other thought on the subject is,that perhaps a small syndicate of interested OOFers get together to buy it and maintain it between them so as to secure it's survival as a specialist vehicle and get to do what Josh has been doing with it.......only a thought so please don't  kill me for suggesting it :)
