PICS--The '61 Belvedere in anti-tan metallic purple....
Had to get one in this color. The Chicago PD ordered a fleet of '61 Plymouths in assorted colors for plainclothes officers. Some of the colors included orange and purple. They stood out like red flags on the street. Not just the colors, but in a move to economize, all of the new cars purchased had silver grey wheels with dog dish caps just like the patrol cars. Those made the cars stand out even more so.
