    Joe: the highway units of that day had 2800's and 2900's series vehicle numbers. Nice replica.

    Before RADAR became available, the calibrated speedo was used to 'clock' or pace the speed of moving vehicles. When RADAR first became popular with police it was stationary only, so these speedo were used well into the 70s.

    The interior and exterior of this car look very sharp.

    My only question is why is there an extra speedometer above the controls for the lights / sirens? I recall the Milwaukee Police had something similar to that in their patrol cars in the 70's & early 80's.

    Thanks for the pictures and response.

    The builder of this Ford is an NYC native and wanted to replicate a police vehicle from when he lived in New York. I have had the opportunity to see, photograph and DRIVE this car in person and it is accurate down to the most minuscule detail. There are more detailed photos of it in my album:

    Bill, indeed a very nice car. There are regulars here who see this car on a daily basis as a Masthead photo in our members area. The car is getting honored in that way. Possibly why there are no comments.

    cant believe no one has left a comment as to how nice this is, granted, it looks like he just threw money at it and isnt really a "grassroots" garage project, but still..... it is nice.

    Is that a 429 did NYPD use that in all the 70 Ford's or did they use V-8's for Highway Patrol and sixes for surface streets I ask coz I think someone said that once but I'm fuzzy on details
