This one is actually the Canadian counterpart of the Gran Fury, a 1985 Plymouth Caravelle

So when does the Diplomat appear?

The Diplomat appeared right at the beginning when Matt Frewer yells 'We're nowhere near the east Seattle parkway' The grille clearly reads Dodge.

That makes sense, Vancouver is listed as a filming location on the IMDB

It started as an '84 or '85 Dodge Diplomat AHB, then became a Gran Fury (or Caravelle) when they start shooting at it, then became a Diplomat again (note the silver taillights)

I don't any claer Caravelle pics but I compaired the grill on the one in the pics above to a very clear pic I have of an '88 Gran Fury and there identical so if the grill is differnt (on the Caravelle) this is defineatly a Gran Fury

I was guessing about the grill, it might be the same, but it looks a little different to me :think:
It could be something else, check out the thumbnail pictures. Maybe there's a clue there, like an actual "Caravelle" badge on the fender or something...

According to wikipedia, this car would actually be "Carvelle Salon", in order to distinguish it from the smaller K-body Caravelle introduced for 1983.

Yes, but before then this car was simply known as the Caravelle. I'm not sure when the police-package Caravelle was first introduced, whether 1981 or 1982. But it wasn't known as the Salon. And since this is at the most a 1985 model due to the absence of a third brake light (this being ID'd as a 1985 model is just a guess), we might want to default to the first year available and simply leave out the Salon name.

Makes sense, I guess you can change it to '81 then if you'd like. I thought that this was an specifically an '85 model (since it was identified as such), but now that I look it was Snookie who said it and you can't always trust him when it comes to model years, can you? :D

Four stars is an overload asking me. Three stars is enough, considering it was only used in the scene where it gets shot at/rolls over. It was probably inoperable following the rollover, so they replaced it with the Diplomat. I might be wrong though, but the Diplomat is seen more often than the Caravelle.

A light blue one that makes only one scene – the only one not to be wrecked, too…

This one has the Pentastar hood ornament, which started in 1982, and black windshield wipers, which I think started in 1983.

I agree too it should be a 1984 Plymouth Caravelle Salon
