    Is this an old picture or a well-done comtemporary? That is one sweet looking 51 back there. Also noticed the F100 at the right.

    Sweet picture.
    Looks like a flathead.
    I wonder if its ex-military...or were the cops able to get new H-D 45's?

    Reminds me that my oldest brother lived in a little central California town, Gustine.
    In 1956 They bought a new 56 Ford police car. One week later, it was STOLEN.
    I don't know if they ever recovered it or not.

    TomWar,

    So that would've had a 272 Y-block in it, right?
    Back in the 70's, I saw an ad for a nice '56 Vicky. The owner stated it had a "256 Police Interceptor" engine in it.
    I guess that "interceptor" mod could be made to any of those Y-blocks...even the Mercury's! ;)

    What did that mod entail again?

    This is My bike 1928 JD Harley Police model. The battery on the back is actually a "ONE WAY" receiver radio. You could only listen to police calls and not acknowledge the dispatcher. It has every aftermarket option that was available at the time.
