1989 Dodge Diplomat SalonA true AHB Police Package 1989 Dodge Diplomat from a California Sheriff's Department. Always rust and crash free car and never drilled for light bar, just one antenna in trunk, which remains. Originally white with one Maaco repaint that still shines very nice but is typical inexpensive paint job....looks great from 25 feet. NO bondo or other hidden disappointments. The mechanicals are AWESOME with absolutely no expense spared. I did everything right, with no corners cut. The engine is a professionally built stroked 360 (408 c.i.d.). Some of the particulars on the engine, which has less than 10,000 miles on it and runs AWESOME; Race prepped block, KBHypereutectic pistons, Sealed Power Moly Rings, Scat I Beam Rods, ARP Rod Bolts, Scat 4" Cast Crank, ARP Main Bolts, Full Grooved Main Bearings, Chamfered Bearings, Melling Oil Pump, Milodon 8 quart oil pan, Muscle Motors custom Hydraulic Roller Cam with Crane Hydraulic Lifters, 2.05x1.625 Stainless Valves with 5 angle Valve Job, Comp Cams Hydraulic Roller Valve Springs and Teflon Valve Seals, covered with stock Chrysler Valve Covers for the factory appearance I was going for throughout the car. The engine Dyno'd on engine stand, with carburator at 469 hp and 528 lb/ft of torque! (I have slip from builder). And, the car now as fuel injection, so it runs even better. I added FiTech fuel injection for reliability and better hot starts. It now starts right up, regardless of conditions, every time, quickly and easily, and idles no problem, without help of revving. Engine is also equipped with the protection of a Milodon Windage Tray package, large B&M "Super Cooler" Engine Oil Cooler with larger and totally leak free steel braided lines and AN fittings, the factory Police transmission Oil Cooler, as well as the factory Police Power Steering Oil Cooler, all leak free. The ignition is the fantasticly operating "Rev-n-ator" system. If you're not familiar please research it. It's great! The transmission is a firm shifting flawlessly operating HD operating 727 from TCI Automotive, with a DEEP aluminum wrinkle black finned Mopar Performance pan for extra capacity and cooling. The differential is the factory HD Police 8.25, with brand new Yukon 3.21 gears and an a new Mopar Sure-Grip unit. These components operate flawlessly as well. If it's your thing, this car will do rolling burnouts. Stomping it off the line.....forget it, the car won't move. You'll melt the tires off. The tires are Mastercraft Avenger GT Radials, 235/70/15 all the way around, on factory slotted Police Wheels. All wheels in very good condition, well balanced. Car will cruise at 80 mph smooth and quiet. I'll be adding Engine, wheels and tires pictures soon. The exhaust is a Mandrel Bent, 2.5 inch dual exhausts system that is very nicely installed and tucked under car, with quiet mufflers. No obnoxious loudness. They come off very expensive high quality TTI full length Headers. The car still has it's factory Police Radiator and a Chrysler HD 7 blade fan and runs extremely cool even in very hot Florida Summers. Absolutely no worries. It could idle all day long without a worry. Originally, I had a 160 degree thermostat in engine, and had to swap it for a 180 because it never came up to good operating temperature. It just barely does now. BIG newer Interstate Battery and still protected by factory Police Thermoguard Battery Cover.
Suspension is awesome too. Firmfeel urethane bushings everywhere up front and I do mean everywhere, except the K Frame isolators which are even better. I replaced those with Firmfeel's solid Aluminum "biscuits" connecting the K Frame to car with zero flex. Makes the car so tight in turns, high speeds, etc. Also upgraded to their "Fast Ratio" Pitman and Idler Arm, and Moog Ball Joints and larger 11/16th Tie Rods and instead of Factory 9/16th. The Police Rear Anti-Sway Bar remains out back and has Urethane Bushings as well.
Less than 500 miles on oil and filter, recent Brake job using NOS Mopar front rotors and Police HD finned 11 inch rear drums.
All NOS gauges except the certified Police speedometer which is very clean and shiny I just had face plate off and polished it (See pic) and all work perfectly. Car also has still working WIG WAG headlights that flash all four headlights alternating sides, along with a new very bright Unity spotlight (the old one was dingy). The picture in which car has a lightbar on roof; the bar was just resting on roof, not attached. It was there for use in a movie scene. Same for the red and blue lights on high beams. They were screens placed over headlights. The interior is in great condition and the front seats and arm rest were just recovered in HD Vinyl at a cost of $750 (pic still in cloth). Back seat still nice. The four power windows work perfectly up and down.
What does the car need? Wiper linkage bushings which I can fix. Very small barely able to see rock chip in Windshield toward middle. I don't drive it in bad weather so I just haven't bothered. The HVAC box has been removed because I don't use it but will go with car and is in good condition. Also, LOTS of spare parts go with car.
If you will allow me, I will text you any pictures you want immediately. 321 720 2500. Please ask anything I may have forgotten to write but nothing important forgotten. Reason for selling has NOTHING to do with this great car. I bought an old truck, and need room and finances for it. I have over $30,000 invested in this car so I cannot go any lower than my starting bid. It's a whole lot of car for this money. I will assist any shipper you may send for car, and can hold car for up to 30 days after full payment is made. Thank you.Super solid rust free never crashed RUNS AWESOME torque monster less than 10,000 miles on professionally built with all high quality parts and internally balanced stroked 360 to over 400 cubic inches, and runs AWESOME.
