Here is a set of photos of a somewhat unusual Dodge CHP station wagon taken in the Sacramento area by Dale Poppleton, date on the prints is October, 1969. There is a CB radio mounted under the dash but there appears to be no antenna for it (yet.) This vehicle was driven by PR Officer Bob Benton from the Sacramento office.
The car features the Motorola Motran radio and the Federal Interceptor PA20 series electronic siren amplifier. There is no view under the hood to see whether a mechanical siren was still fitted as well.
Thanks to Robert Johnson for painstakingly restoring what were faded and yellowed prints so that we have the images below:
