I agree. Even though it wasn't a standard issue police car, it very well could have been used by a Police officer for patrol of some kind. Kind of like Will Smith in Bad Boys lol! Would be a cool conversation piece at shows.

I think you need to convert it into a police vehicle and create a wild background story.

Wasn't that the patrol car that Osama Bin Laden was arrested in?

If it's a V8 conversion, just make sure it was done right: 5 lug spindles, upgraded brakes, suspension and rear diff just for a start. If it wasn't done right, I would recommend dropping an I-6 back into it.

One of my 68s I did had the same thing.. it means it was used by the police.. a car like that probably not as patrol but maybe a detective or something of that sort... they usually have V8 engines and are always automatic and the only real difference is they had undercover lights on them at one point.. but for a car that old it may not of even had them..

The reason I know this is I called around making sure it wasn't stolen

There is nothing interesting about that other than the story of the car.

Would like to see a cop car build due to the fact the car isn't numbers matching anymore! Would be interesting if done correctly! might be able to auction it off if you get wild with it.. invite the local police force to the auction ect... your choice!
