UPDATE 7/13/16 – Bruce has lowered the price to $6,500!
FROM 6/29/16 – What do you do with a four-door Dodge? Build a cop car of course! That’s what one of our readers (Bruce F) did with their 1973 Polara. They gave it the State Trooper look and I love it! The gold graphics go great with the green paint and I’m sure it turns a lot more heads than it would have in stock duds. The black steelies and dog dish caps give it a purposeful look and the blue light is obviously just for looks. This would be a great parade day car or daily driver – as long as the local constable doesn’t mind.
Chasing power is provided by a 360 V8! The car has been sitting for a while so Bruce has been busy getting it cleaned up. It does run and drive well though. It’s outfitted with power steering, power brakes, and yes, air conditioning! It has even been converted to R134, but – as is often the case – it needs a “recharge”. Plan on looking for leaks too while you are at it!
If this were mine, I’d be trolling eBay right now for a 140mph Certified speedometer to replace that civilian unit. The cassette player would have to go with a period radio taking its place. Bruce didn’t send us any other photos of the dash, but there’s gotta be a CB radio down there, right?
This looks like the perfect use for a full size that has not gained the kind of appreciation enjoyed by smaller Mopars. You will want to check your local laws before running around with that light on top. We wouldn’t want you to get in trouble for impersonating an officer! While you’re at the Police station, you might want to ask about the legality of citizen arrests though. The officers will probably be so busy admiring your cruiser that they’ll probably give you their blessing. This one is located in Sevierville, Tennessee and Bruce would like to get $7,500 or best offer. You can contact him here via email if interested.
Thanks for listing this with us Bruce! If any of you have a unique classic that you’d like to see here, please consider selling it here on Barn Finds!
