*🚓 1961 Dodge Polara 🚔*
___________________________________________________ "Patrolling a state with thousands of miles of freeway, the California highway patrol had developed exacting specifications for its police pursuit units. Durability power and handling were obvious areas were a police car had to excel, but the CHP emphasized in an additional requirement size. In 1961 the agency found itself in a pickle when their preferred supplier Dodge offered only the one 118 inch Dart as it's official police package. •
But the CHP had considerable influence and as a result receive special treatment from the car maker, who supplied 1,200 Dodge Polara Police package units through unofficial channels. Consequently these were the only polara police models built in 1961, making them exceedingly rare."
