Dodge : Polara Polara CHP for sale
Current customer rating: (484 votes) based on
For your consideration. I'm offering my 1969 Dodge Polara Police Pursuit vehicle. Firstly. this an original and documented Special Order Pursuit vehicle. ordered by the State of California Highway Patrol. and it needs a complete restoration. This car was in service with the CHP until sold in approximately 1972. After it was taken "out of service" it was painted yellow by the CHP. To my knowledge CHP cars sold to the public were painted either black. yellow. brown or sometimes white. The car spent some time in Arizona and possibly Mexico. and then ended up in a wrecking yard from approximately 1979 until 2014. The car has the original Chrysler Broadcast sheet. (build sheet). VIN tag. and fender tag. It is missing most of the Special Order/Special Paint tag. but part of it remains.
This is an original L code 440 HP Super Commando vehicle. K code police. and code 99 99 special mask and paint for the CHP. This car is the real deal. it was specially built and manufactured for the CHP by Chrysler to California Highway Patrol specifications. In addition this car actually served with the CHP. it is not "just" a CHP package car. It is the real deal. The VON (vehicle order number) of this unit is within known numbers of other CHP serving units.
A few brief facts. The 1969 Dodge Polara Pursuit CHP cars were built specifically to CHP specifications. They had unique features like. extra body welds/reinforcement. specially tuned chassis. nbsp;suspension. power train. electrical systems and interiors to specific CHP specification. In addition the 1969 Polara CHP Pursuit had all of the Heavy Duty options that most MoPar Police Pursuit vehicles had. These cars have legendary status among police car collectors and car collectors internationally. They are called by some. "the holy grail of collectible police cars". There are approximately 14 known CHP Polara Pursuit cars out of a production run of approximately 1500 examples.
The CHP Polaras were tested at the Chrysler Proving Gounds in 1969 with a top speed of 149. 6 MPH. Other sources quote 147 mph. A quote from one of the original Chrysler testers --- Rex Sagel. a participant in the testing. added. “The top speed of the Dodge Polara pursuit car was 147 mph. I owned two at one time in my life. both were clocked in excess of 150 MPH. nothing like my Superbird. but still a great vehicle. It was not until the four door HEMI Charger reached 150 mph in 2006 that the 1969 Polara record was broken. ” -- Allpar. com
The car is NOM and currently has a 67 383 HP engine. but the exhaust manifolds to the mufflers are original. The CHP unit number markings are present. I believe it is #4448. I didn't want to remove any more original paint once I found the unit numbers. (on the drivers door. front fender. and rear qts extension. ) Most of the CHP goodies are there: battery heat shield. bracket for the Leece Neville alternator. wiring for the siren and under dash lights. and rear Dietz deck lights. The original white CHP steering wheel is there. etc. etc. Certified Calibrated Police speedometer. holes in the dash for shotgun lock. holes in the A-Pillars where the spot lights were mounted. There is a plug on top the drivers rear quarter panel where the antenna for the Motorola Station radio was mounted. The rubber floor mat is in very good condition with one minor crack under the rear seat (not visible) and some abrasion near the brake pedal. The interior is cooked.
The car has some rust issues. but the floors are mostly solid. The rear portion where a passengers feet would rest needs to be replaced on both sides but not the entire rear just a patch and there is a small patch about the the size of a dollar bill on the drivers floor which needs repair but that's about it for the floor pan. The trunk has holes and could be patched. or replaced. All of the frame rails and rockers etc are solid. very solid. There is some rust in only the lower quarters. the uppers are good. There is the typical Chrysler rear window rust. and the metal around the rear of the window should be replaced. Also the same for the front windshield. I wouldn't call this car a rusty car. as it spent a long time in the Arizona desert. but it does need repair and full restoration.
The front seat has been removed to show the condition of the rare rubber mat. it will be installed when sold. Also found inside the car underneath the back seat was an old heroin "cooking spoon" and syringe hidden by a "suspect". and a 38 caliber police fired shell casing. which go with the car. This car has true CHP stories and history!
This is a very rare MoPar police vehicle and worthy of a sympathetic restoration. which was my intention. I have been looking for a decent 69 Polara Pursuit CHP for a long. long time. I found this one and bought it. Unfortunately. a recent diagnosis has given my family medical challenges and I need to sell some of my cars to fund health care costs. My reserve is reasonable considering the rarity of the car.
Please review photos and email me for additional photographs. I have about 95 on file. but can only load 24 or so per eBay. In addition you can always call me Pacific Standard Time at 206-218-5453 and ask ANY questions you may have. Inspections welcome and encouraged. The car is for sale locally so I reserve the right to end auction at any time. Thank you for looking.

Hello, I saw the listing here from a general search for Dodge Polaras, and im just a bit confused. The site is www.cars-from-uk.com, and the listing is tagged as "Cars in Canada", and the description says its located in AZ, so I was hoping for some clarity, and also, since im totally unfamiliar with this site, I wanted to make sure you still have the car, and if you could send some photos of the floor rust if so.
