Trvia:
In the 1980's why did the LAPD never use the Dodge Diplomat or its twin the Plymouth Gran Fury (1982-1989) ?
Because they LAPD specified a 4 door full sized sedan with a wheelbase of at least 114 inches. The Diplomat and Gran Fury were 112.7 inches. For reference the Impala/Caprice was 116.0 in and the Crown Victoria was 114.3 in.
