A nice clean patrol car in working order usuall goes for 1000-2500. Detective models go for a bit more since they're the cream of the crop. They go for 1500-3000, give or take.
Its a crap shoot with these and pricing. They sell higher in some areas and low in others. FL cop cars seem to be good and cheap.
My neighbor bought a black and white from Palm Beach Gardens. Real nice car he paid 1800 for it.

AKA: The back seats of dick cars aren't as full of puke, blood and other various bodily fluids most of the time...

if I bought one, id go straight to the bone yard and look for a nice LX or grand marquis and scavenge all the seats.. theres a lot of them where the interiors are still nice but the drivetrain died or such.. I know of a junked 06 grand marquis that looks brand new on the inside.. if it wasnt for the coolant on the floor from the bad accident (wrecked so hard it popped the A/C vents out of the dash and bent the steering wheel but the doors all open and close)youd swear it smells new.. im thinking the seats would be a near direct fit in a police car..

The cop seats are actually quite nice. And if you carry, they don't get in the way!
