“With the kind of pedigree that just screams 'organized crime', the Buccaneer has always been the vehicle of choice for thugs with delusions of grandeur. But while the mobsters of yesterday had to settle for being classy and understated, today you have access to the kind of modification that will make you a target for racially motivated policing across the length and breadth of San Andreas. Eligible for customization at Benny's Original Motor Works.”
The Buccaneer Custom is a lowrider variant of the Buccaneer, where it brings only minor changes by default.
The vehicle retains its original design from the standard model, retaining the front and rear fascias. However, the car has received only minor changes, where the chrome details found around the car were removed in favour of colorable trimmings. The roof is also removed upon conversion, although it can be installed back through any mod shop. Its underside is fitted with a paintable frame and has a visible driveshaft, a different exhaust setup (dual pipes instead of a single Y-split pipe), and visible hydraulic bars connected to the suspension, replacing the dragster-like suspension setup.
Rather than the Buccaneer's two-tone color, the Buccanner Custom only features a single primary color on the body and lower frames, but makes up for it by having an interior color (which also affects the steering wheel and the seats) and a dial color. The secondary color is applied to the lower sides and the details around the lights, the trim around the windows and rear, and the rear-view mirrors. The vehicle also gets custom "Big Worm" lowrider wheels, along with white-wall tires.
The Buccaneer Custom is mostly identical to the standard Buccaneer, with the only notable difference being a lowered suspension setup, making the Buccaneer Custom feel more planted and responsive than the normal version, at the cost of having slight difficulties on curbs and bumpy roads.
There are many variations of the car that appear during the Car MeetVehicle Cargo mission type. The same modified cars will appear each time at each specific car meet scenario, albeit with different colours and a different livery.
Buccaneer Custom 1 has an invalid rear bumper value which refers to the Buccaneer's stubby wheelie bar and so this car cannot be recreated. Buccaneer Custom 1 appears to act as a 'base' in which all other vehicles use the modifications applied to it, only changing the color and livery. It shares its color with Buccaneer Custom 7.
There is several variations of the car with the same modifications, with different colors and a different livery, each specific to each of the three car meets. They all have the same license plate text which can spawn in different colours. They all spawn with a hardtop roof. They all have stock interior colours and stock dials.
2 and 3 spawn at the Vinewood Boulevard car meet.
4 and 5 spawn at the Power Station car meet.
6 and 7 spawn at the Vinewood Bowl car meet.
7 has no colour reference and simply returns to the original model - 34
None of the cars can be stored in Personal Garages and cannot be taken to Los Santos Customs or any other mod shop.
