1957 Dg Coronet Police car frnt

Prior to the late 1950’s, police departments across the country were purchasing stock Chrysler vehicles straight from dealer lots and personally outfitting them for police duty. Recognizing the growing need for a vehicle tailored exclusively to the needs of law enforcement, in 1956 Dodge released the Coronet police package, the first Dodge purposely built for police work. Unlike the Coronet readily available to consumers, the Coronet police car featured a heavy duty suspension, more powerful brakes, and a pursuit-ready HEMI® engine.


Since then, Dodge vehicles have remained a favorite of police departments across the country and the Dodge Charger PPV is currently one of the fastest, most capable Police Pursuit Vehicles in the industry.
