    A wood grain dash and a 4 speed in a police car? Maybe Hollywood PD?



    I doubt it..

    And why would you put a spot lite on a 4 speed car?
    Maybe get your partner to shift if you have to make a dash for the bad guy?
    Maybe LA had a three handed alien police officer since CA has so many aliens?

    All them pictures and no build sheet?

    My son cleans out the refrigerator on trash day, so something else smells funny here.

      I wonder if someone had a 62 Daytona parts car (V8, 4 speed) and a four door, perhaps a fleet vehicle of some sort, and built what they could with what they had around.

          I saw this car in person while in So California about 10 years ago. I had pulled into a Kragen auto parts with my red 62 hardtop, and when I came back out, this was parked next to me and the owner wanted to chat. I suspect [now] he was the previous owner who sold it to the guy currently selling it. Though he told me, I cannot remember his name, he told me if I remember correctly, he was a union welder in the LA/Bakersfield area. He was a member of the SDC. Howard, any thoughts????

          Understand these gleanings remembered are 10 years later. I *think* the owner told it it was some sort of county car, and he put the bucket seats and swapped a bunch of stuff in it from a parts car. I do not remember the body tag code. He told me he had the parts car yet in his carport or back yard and asked me if I was interested in it. I had no interest in it at the time due to being 2250 miles from home, but I think I gave Bob Sporner his contact info as Bob needed lark parts at the time.

          That would be a fun sleeper and make a fun replacement for a wrecked 55 4dr...glad I'm not in the LA area.

            If it were an Italian brand it'd be called a bitsa.

              I called the seller. He's a used car dealer in SoCal. He has the production build sheet that came with the car's paperwork from the previous owner. It is a Y8 car but had a 289 4-speed as the original factory drivetrain. He wasn't sure if the motor/trans was original to the car. If I heard correctly the door tag is 62V-28661. It was silver originally (I think someone on the forum mentioned that in a prior post) and did not have a spotlight, seller was not sure when it was added. I suggested he might want to drop the whole "former police car" tag line and instead try marketing it as a 4 speed Lark sedan with a 289 motor.......that needs a new interior.

                It appears to have an AFB on the engine not a 62 correct WCFB.
