Origional paint. One day I was cleaning the dash and was in a position where I could look down to the bottom edge of the speedo. It had the word police on it. Everything made sense then It was built with the Police package on it. I bought it from the origional owner and he had no clue. Big engine, big brakes, big rear end. The speedo on your mystery car wasn't available to the public.
This Plymouth only had the word Calibrated i dont think it sad police ,but it could have,,on MOPAR you can never say Never.
