This is the new for 2009 Matchbox 1978 Dodge Monaco Police Cruiser.
Criminals and fuel efficiency beware!
This old school police cruiser reminds me of the intro to Hill Street Blues.
It would also be fun to modify one of these into a Bluesmobile (which was a '74 Dodge Monaco.) If I ever find a mini loud-speaker to strap to the top I'm doing it!
The only thing that isn't exactly accurate is the light bar, which is the same light bar Matchbox uses on all it's recent cop cars. It has been molded thicker, however, to give it a little more of a period accurate feel.
The details are great too, with car numbers and a nice looking police emblem.
And a Mopar era Dodge insignia and a shout out to the Matchbox police department's "Commitment To Service!"
Another cool thing to look for on Matchbox cars are the interior details - this cop has a CB radio...
...and a shotgun riding shotgun!
