Pretty sure we've seen this particular Polara before. A bit late getting to it as there's less than 5 hours to go in the auction. DK41U ...
Real deal retired CHP sedan, this car is a daily driver and has been on numerous road trips, it runs cool and steady down the road, new front end including shocks, Firehawk pv 235-70-15 pursuit tires, rebuilt matching #'s 440 h.p. motor and trans. Rebuilt factory carb, mopar electronic distributor, H pipe dual exhaust sounds great. Shotgun rack and radio will be included in this sale.
They seem consistent with the originals, but they are too tall and look to be too far away from the front of the car.
Here is a shot of an original:
Although even the original design looks flimsy, it also looks to be more "stout" than the replica and would likely be stronger. The downward angle connection, on the original, is definitely shorter and attached much lower on the uprights. Also, the section that travels under the car seems to be closer to the body, in the original photograph.
* I agree. If it were mine, I'd change it to be more correct.
