1970 Phoenix Police car

Recommended Posts

I think this one came out pretty good and I was able to do it with the help of a good friend that made me the decals and Dan Baker for his input on getting the decals to look just right!! ;) I still have to get a license plate on it as I over looked needing one when I had the decals made :) And I need to still put a antenna on the trunk but for now it's done!!!

Enjoy the photos and let me know what you think..

Thanks, Marty

Mary that's a nice looking cruiser.Those Phoenix cops sure keep there cars clean! Thanks

It's easy when they only get rained on three times a year! :lol:

Marty,

I seem to remember seeing one of these around my neighborhood (35th Ave & Cactus) a couple of years back, but I can't remember if it was Phoenix PD or DPS. But it was a late '60's or early '70's Ford. Did you by chance to see that one?

I do remember seeing these in some old photos and a couple of movies (was it Dirty Harry?) and you really captured the look.

Looks awesome Marty! Sorry I missed it at the meeting but it looks really good. Not many replicas of the old tan cars from here. Now I need you to teach me how to make such nice pics on this site :lol::mellow:

Super clean build! Amazing job on the BMF. :D

Thanks!! But I really can't take the credit for doing the BMF, I wanted to get the model done for our Sat. meeting and still had lots of other stuff to do. So I got some help from my friend Raoul and I still don't know how he can do such a good job as fast as he was able to do it?????

Yeah I'd like to find some more at the price I got this one for. I paid $10 for it at one of our build sessions and I have one that Hobby Heaven did and that one was $10

And today is what our 1st good rain of the new year!!! :lol:

I can remember seeing a city yard some where around 19th Ave & Buckeye back about 20 plus years that had a much of the late 70's in it. And no I have not seen that one.
