1972 Dodge Polara Police Pursuit Model (Sarge)
Last updated Apr 8, 2007
Original CHP car #9333 serving from 1972 until 1974, I pruchased the car from a retired Chippie in the Santa Rosa area.
After restoration I discovered its usefulness in fund raising for fallen officers, youth programs such as "Explorers", and promoting law enforcement history as well as automotive history.
Sarge was recently used in the filming "Winter of Frozen Dreams" being released late fall of 2007.
It was altered via magnetics and a temporary light bar to depict a "Corlear" police car.
Years were spent tracking down original equipment to make the car correct..the radio under the dash is an actual CHP special head made by Motorola still bearing the original fcc call tag, the rear Deck lights are originals mounted with the correct original mounts found seperately, the shotgun is vintage to that year and dept and the decals are original out of production CHP markings.
440 HP engine, Holley 4 barrel, 727 Trans with speed governor removed, 3:23 sure-grip, heavy duty cooling, HD brakes and shocks. HD suspension, 15x7 HD wheels and pursuit radial tires.
The ivory plastic steering wheel is a custom CHP only order,
this was done to prevent the officers grabbing a hot black wheel in the Cali sun.
Siren activate thru horn ring, 7 blade cooling fan,white wheel,HD cloth and vinyl interior, A/C cut off for pursuit application, Ivory wheel, extra body support welds, heavy duty engine roll restrictor on POLICE and TAXI only.
Installation of Siren, push bumpers. Driver side dome light switch disable, Shotgun mount and radio rack.
