Street Parked: Seattle Police Cruiser

I’m serving jury duty this week and spotted this restored 1970 Plymouth Satellite parked outside City Hall.

According to the Seattle Police Museum, this is an original Seattle Police car that has been restored. It has a 383 cubic inch “Super Commando” engine with a four barrel carburetor. The museum notes that it was popular with the officers because of its speed and maneuverability.

This car is used at festivals and public events as a goodwill ambassador for the Seattle Police Department. Wonder if chief Diaz would let me take it for a spin?
