Look Out! The Police Are Coming! by 


Found this Model A Ford Police car beside the road today in Perryville Missouri. This Model A Ford Tudor looked to be in excellent condition and it was for sale!
This one with the Police sign and light reminded me of the old black and white movies of the Keystone Cops

The first Model A rolled off the production line on Oct. 20th, 1927 but it was not released to the public until Dec. 2nd, 1927. The Model A came in seven body styles and an amazing four colors!
The engine had a displacement of 200.5 cubic inches and produced a 40 HP at 2200 rpm.
It had a 3 speed sliding gear transmission with 1 speed reverse. The Model A had 4 wheel mechanical brakes and double action hydraulic shock absorbers with semi-elliptic front and rear transverse springs. Top Speed was around 65 mph.
It came with standard equipment such as a Starter, Five Steel Spoke Wheels, Dash light, Mirror, Windshield Wiper, Oil Gauge, Gasoline Gauge, Rear and Stop Light, Speedometer, Tools and Pressure Grease Gun Lubrication. Something only much higher priced cars offered.
The prices were low even by the standards of 1927.
The Tudor Sedan sold for $495.00.
For $385.00 you could get a Roadster while and a beautiful Phaeton was $395.00. For $495.00 you would get you the new Ford Coupe and for $550.00 the Sport Coupe with a standard Rumble Seat was available.

    Love the police car. Wish I could buy a car for those prices now! The spoke tires are really nice.

  • I thought it was very funny, at a top speed of 65 it couldn’t chase down any one today. ☺

    That’s immaculate! I can just see Tucker riding in one of these….or Gini’s Frank can drive and we’ll sit in the back and misbehave! lol!

  • It was sitting in a corn field with nothing around so I don’t know where you would go to see about buying it. It was very sharp.
