      That car is rare and is a keeper! There have been a number of threads on those 20 special Marshals. First order of business is to purchase a copy of the Production Order for it from SMN.

        Yep, Tex; it's a real one. Quite a find.

        Can you determine if it was ever put in service as a police car? 'Looks like a little disturbance in the middle of the door where a graphic might have been placed at one time.

        Keep us posted; this is exciting stuff as those were well-equipped sedans for good handling and such.

        Congratulations on the find. BP

          Great find. Good luck digging out the car and taking ownership of it. Very Cool.

            The "taking ownership" part is not a done deal yet. I have been 3 years getting this far.

                Tex, As others have said, that's a keeper, is absolutely right on the money. Alabama has been noted in the past for "taking the lead" as far as police pursuit vehicles go. IIRC back in the early 70's, the State Patrol had a handful of American Motors AMX's set up and equiped for high speed duty, including a roll bar. Looks to me they may have used some Studes even early on. The production order will certainly varify that fact. Good luck on the "acquisition".
