Finnish HighWay-patrol Diplomat
« on: November 11, 2016, 10:51:35 »

just purchaced a 1988 Diplomat Police-car. It was given to Finnish Police by Chrysler-importer Aro-yhtymä in 1990. It is said to be second to last factory-maid Police Special. Sadly, police had some problem with the engine very soon and the 318-4bbl was somehow overhauled. New short block was installed and some performance camshaft installed. Result was, that car failed its first smogcheck at the age of 3yrs. So it was auctioned to one carguy, who had been fond to it since new. He kept it from 1994 to 2016, and I bought it from him today.
Now Diplomat has 92k miles and is running fine. It is original white with pursuit package and two sets of police wheels.
Originally it was ment to by a PR-car for finnish Police and given a numberplate COP-I

Fantastic.  Very ironic that a cop car failed a smog test.

There's another Finn or two who pop by one in a while.

The story goes that this was second to last sold factory cop-car. This was somehow sold not earlier than spring 1990. But that is just what I was told. There is a Suresky dealer sticker on the backlid.

A nice treasure that you have.  A police car, without a lot of police abuse.
