So let's say you were a police department looking for a patrol car a few decades back and you wanted the car to have a 153 CID 4-cyl. engine under the hood. What would you choose?

Hints--

Your police department is here in the U.S.

You want a GM vehicle

You might consider the optional 194 CID six

Eisenhower is no longer president of the country.

OK, so that was my first and probably my last trivia question for this forum. I now can see that lead balloons can't really fly.

I was reading a book about Chevrolet Police Cars by Ed Sanow, which gives a year by year description of police packages offered from 1955 through 1996. In the 1962 section, the author describes the Chevy II patrol car, which came standard with a 153 CID four and had the 194 CID six as an option. There's even a picture of the Chevy II dressed up in patrol uniform, complete with a cherry on top.

I'll shut up now.
