Hey all, first post here! Just purchased this 1960 Dodge Seneca from my dad last week, with how rare it is and solid I couldn't pass up keeping it around, and finally working on it. He has had it since 2002 from what I can remember. Originally a metallic green unmarked unit for the Oregon State Police, it was sold in the mid 60s to a gentleman who specifically went up to Salem and purchased it at auction. Not sure if he had it painted the tan that it is now or if OSP did before it was sold. The original 4bbl carb and intake on the HP 383 was swapped out for a 2bbl setup we assume during the 70s. It was last tagged in 1980, cant remember when the gentleman passed away but my dad bought it from his grandson.
Anyways its still in great shape for its age, as far as I've looked so far there isn't any serious cancer, just some bubbling in the lower parts of the quarters and fenders, most likely some pinholes underneath. My dad got it running when he got it, but the brakes needed work, I tried to get it to turn over but the ignition switch decided to fall apart on me (new one ordered). Will be going through the fuel system, fluids, and brakes to get it on the road, then interior. Eventually it will get restored back to its original color. Going to try and keep on updates as they come! Photos are links, cant attach photos how I normally do on most forums and they're too large to attach, I'll figure it out at some point

Great car. I bought a similar WSP 2-door sedan from a wrecking yard in
Coburg. 383 4bbl, 3-onda-tree. I needed specific parts off the car and left
it there for them to continue parting it out. Wish now, I would have dragged
it home and saved it. Back then, it was "just a junk car".
