1976 Dodge Monaco Ex-Montana Highway Patrol Pursuit Vehicle. Equipped with 440-HP ("E86") engine, heavy duty 727 TorqueFlite, ("D36"), and "Sure-Grip" 2.71:1, 9.25 inch differential. Vehicle has 65,000 miles believed to be original.
It is not a "clone" but the real thing that once patroled under the "Big Sky" of Montana. Assigned to Shelby Montana MHP post, it was unit number 2436. The single Trooper to whom it was assigned from 1975 to 1978 is known. Its ownership history since retirement is known.
This Monaco has undergone restoration processes aimed at preserving it for the ages, but it retains its original, numbers-matching drivetrain, major body panels, and "police-spec" features (big brakes, auxiliary fluid coolers, heavy duty suspension, body reinforcements, 140-mph speedo, etc) from the factory.
The Montana Highway Patrol badging is correct for period and used by permission.
This vehicle is not for sale.
