1969 Plymouth Satellite Constable Car

In 1968, Plymouth became the most sold police vehicle in the world; USA, Mexico, and Canada. By 1970, when you asked for police assistance, the officers arrived in a MoPar 85% of the time. From then, MoPar never looked back until the end of their rear wheel drive cars came in 1989.

This 1969 Plymouth Satellite is likely a normal civilian car that’s been converted to a Oatka Falls Constable car. Whoever built the car did a good job using equipment that appears to have been available during the late 1960’s and early 1970’s. The decals may be excessive, and although it’s hard to see in the photos, the car has Ford ‘Police Interceptor’ badges. The door emblem wouldn’t have ‘1969’ on it, a town constable’s office probably wouldn’t have a supervisors car, and probably wouldn’t have ‘Dial 0’ on the side. Also, the hub caps on the car appear to be to new.

This Plymouth Satellite has the 318 CID V8. The largest engine available at the time was the legendary 440 CID V8, but not all law enforcement agencies would have ordered their cars with the larger engine.

Regardless whether or not the cars decals or equipment are accurate, it’s still pretty cool.

I started my career as a police officer in 1989 with the Geneva on The Lake Police Department. I worked part time as a police officer and full time as a Security Sergeant doing armed mobile security patrols for a local security company. In 1990 I became a State Trooper with the Ohio State Highway Patrol. During my career as a State Trooper I was certified as a Technical Crash Investigator, OPOTA Police Instructor, OPOTA Police Driving Instructor, LASER Instructor, and received awards for ACE (Auto Larceny) and Post Trooper of The Year.
