- Starting bid is set at $1,000 located in Olympia, Washington.
1977 Plymouth Gran Fury Montana Highway Patrol U-Code 440. Car has lived in Montana it's whole life so it is super solid, has been sitting for a few years but we got it running and driving. We pulled the gas tank and cleaned it out so it runs off the tank now. The only real problem with the car is somebody punched out the ignition lock so it will need some wiring work. We have a new column to put in the car to fix it. The previous owner also converted it from lean burn to electronic ignition and some of the wiring will need to be sorted. Car still has the numbers matching engine and transmission.

- I think she's a beauty. We've seen a few of these sky blue Montana cars over the years, looks like it's actually B3 "Cadet Blue Poly."
There is a Montana Law Enforcement Museum in Philipsburg, Montana, maybe they'll buy it . They already have a 1954 Ford police package car, the very early days of such a thing. Looking through old manuals on-line the earliest option for a police car I saw was the 1950 Ford. The civilian model had 100hp and the police engine had 110hp ! This 1954 Ford had what they call the 256 which it might seem was a stroked 239, dual exhaust and a 120 speedometer, the civilian Ford speedometer only went to 100 in 1954.
