A big ol' Ford bare bones clone. Which in this case is a civilian LTD with a certified speedo . I'd definitely flip them whitewalls. A solid colour would look a lot better, maybe a spotlight. I get that it's a "detective" clone but it's just too civilian looking for anyone to pick up on that. -
This car has new paint, new tires. It has a Hesco 460 crate engine in it with around 5 or 6 thousand miles on it. Alternator is new as well as new duel exhaust, the carburetor is new also. The car was rust proofed in 1973 and is 100% rust free. It has the certified 140 mph police speedometer and 429 police interceptor fined aluminum valve covers, as well as the police hubcaps. Transmission is going out, there will be a good C-6 Automatic transmission provided with the car.
It must sound pretty nice with that 460 and dual exhaust.
Pierce County Sheriff from the town of Ogden Marsh in Pierce County, Iowa. Ogden Marsh is not a real town but they created a website for the Sheriff, David Dutten, which is the Sheriff's name in the movie.

Found the HESCO page -
Lee Hurley is a native of Ensley, Alabama near Birmingham. In 1971, he opened HESCO which has now grown to 21 employees and offers a full machine shop, an engine stand dyno, boat dyno and a chassis dyno.
HESCO is a full-service automotive shop / machine shop. We specialize in high-performance and exotic vehicles with a major emphasis on performance parts for Jeeps. We work on everything from motor scooters to Ferraris & from antiques to prototypes.
Major emphasis on Jeep stuff. They have a couple of different crate engines but no Ford 460 I could see. I guess the lads at HESCO built that motor for him and shipped it to him in a crate. Ha who knows but "Lee Hurley spent two years with Bobby Allison Racing designing and building engines and chassis components."
