I remember Hot Rod magazine had an article describing how to get a 9C1 Nova by checking the correct boxes on the order form, since a civilian couldn't just go into a Chevy dealer and order the 9C1 package...

...seems like you could get all of the "police" spec parts, but couldn't get the certified speedometer. I remember a dentist in my town got one, a green four door, he immediately had headers and real dual exhaust on it, sounded great. IIRC he kept the steelies and dog dish caps on it, quite a sleeper. Our city PD got Novas in 77 and 78, but by the time I became a cop there in 1987 they were long gone, and unfortunately I didn't get a chance to wheel one :(
