Cohort Sighting: 1969 Plymouth Belvedere Police Cruiser

Dear CC Cohort, You have not been forgotten, just neglected. It’s high summer, and I’m trying to do too many things, and writing up Cohort Classics has slipped a rung or two. But the new postings keep coming in, and it’s a cornucopia of every imaginable type, vintage, country, and condition. You’all, do check it out.

This one by TheProfessor47 did stand out a bit: a pristine ’68  ’69 Belvedere copmobile, caught on the streets of Washington D.C. Shooting a movie, or is someone just indulging their tv-inspired fantasy? What’s interesting is the script on the side:

“to protect and serve” That would be the LAPD. No police department has done that better. The tires are beefier than the originals, so I’m guessing it is someone’s toy. Why not?
