I bought one of them for $500.00 with a blown up motor from the Indio, CA office in mid spring of 1969 to use as a family car. It had 50212 miles on the odometer when I bought it and it had spun a rod bearing,
Two of the officers there tried to get me to buy another one in their yard that had a broken transmission case with 52,000 miles or so on it for another $300.00, I didn't
The reason being is I had already bought a 1965 Fury Two with a 2 barrel 383 motor with a 4 speed in it for $300.00 from a local tow yard, it had been wrecked and totaled, it had 19,000 miles on it.
I wasn't able to buy the other CHP car due to limited funds also
I did the motor swap, the air conditioner mounting bracket wouldn't fit on the 383 motor and so it didn't have air after that until I found the correct bracket later. I had the car painted grey after getting it running the next month
We drove it for two years until it caught on fire and was totaled in the spring of 1971
That car drove nice and road well, dang it for burning up anyways
