Auction Action: 2011 Chevrolet Caprice Police-spec

Want a Pontiac G8 but can#8217;t find a decent one? Can#8217;t wait for the new Holden Commodore to get here? If you live close to Connecticut and you have a dealer license, I have some great news.

Sort of.

Southern Auto Action is a rather large independent dealer auction house.

It receives cars from all over the tri-state area as well as  from New England and as far south as Philly. Cars are sold by manufacturers, rental companies, dealers, and similar, but only to other registered dealers.

Different sellers arrive on different weeks, whenever they have a certain amount of cars to they need to move. This week, General Motors will be auctioning off a handful of its cars, and that#8217;s where I found the gem seen above. Auctions are held on Wednesdays and sales are posted before the end of the week. This got me thinking#8230;

This white 2011 Caprice is sold being auctioned off by General Motors. No history was provided: could have been a test vehicle, a sample vehicle, auto show vehicle, it could have been on a loan or a lease, or perhaps a show car GM took to different police departments for demonstration. No one knows for sure.

It has been #8220;in service#8221; since 09/15/2011, and with only 10,000 miles on the clock, how much abuse could it have taken?

Looks like some minor damage on the roof from a light bar, possibly?

I am very curious how much this vehicle is going to sell for. Unfortunately one of the notes says that this vehicle, even at this auction, can only be sold to Chevy dealers. That is probably because it is being sold directly by GM, and they cannot sell it to anyone else.

Regardless, let#8217;s say you#8217;re Chevy dealer and you have  the option of buying this car.

On one side, it#8217;s very unique and in very low supply, and never for sale to privateers. On the other, while under warranty, it#8217;s a car with an unknown past. It is also a vehicle with a very limited target audience; Jack and Jill won#8217;t buy this as a family vehicle, just like Slick Rick won#8217;t replace his #8217;02 A6 with it.

There are people out there who would be willing to buy this very car, but where do you find them, and how much would they be willing to pay for it?

Let#8217;s pretend you#8217;re a Chevy dealer and you:

How much do you pay for it?

How/where do you resell it?

How do you advertise it?

Let#8217;s just add the fact that unless you make $1500-$3000 on this car, it isn#8217;t worth your time.
