1957 Ohio State Highway Patrol Car.

Recommended Posts

After finding a picture online of an actual '57 Chevy 150 Ohio State Highway Patrol car. I decided I wanted to build a copy of it.

Your model looks just like the picture. If you don't already have the Gum Ball for the roof you might look at the '57 Ford Del Rio wagon kit.

If you don't already have that kit collecting dust and don't feel like spending $20+ just for the rotator, check out Custom Squads. They have a large selection of resin Federal Signals Beacon Ray lights.

The body was painted two weeks ago, The decal's were added mid week last week, And the glass, interior ect were done Sunday. Pictures were taken Sunday, And The stripes have been added to the rear of the car on Monday. The '57 is almost finished though.

Very nice! Don't worry about the stripe, the color was more than likely white, but real color photos from back then are almost non-existant and nobody here could say for sure...do what you want, it's your model. Great project!
