New Jersey must have slow drivers if a 1950 Champion is going to catch them. Is this car for real, or just made up?

That is a Starlight Coupe, I don't see that being a Police unit, they only bought 2 Door or 4 door Sedans.
It does look like a "Tribute" Car.

I think its a Business Coupe. The two-piece windshield is a giveaway.

OK, Business Coupe, NOT a sedan.

With a 4.88 rear, you could roll along marking tires and not have to push in the clutch for blocks and blocks - would probably rub the paint on the door in a couple of months...
