This was my project car. It is a 1964 Dodge 880. I found it in Hemmings Motor News. It was formerly a Calif. Highway Patrol car that served in Fresno. I bought it from the gentleman who bought it from the CHP in 1966. He did his best to make the car look more like a regular car than a former CHP car. Which means he painted everything, green. Changed the front seats, painted the dash, changed the hubcaps and quite a few other things. I've restored it back to its days as a patrol car. I located most of the emergency equipment, and have rebuilt the 413 engine.
Here is the new 413 going in March 2000
And here in the Fall of 2000, with a little help from club member Jim Shuck, is the finished product. A California Highway Patrol black & white.
(editors note: How many remember looking in your rear view mirror for that distinctive front end, besides me?)

Here is my newest addition to my fleet. It's Travis Kingbury's old 68 Barracuda. It was a non-runner when I picked it up. Just finished cleaning all the lifters and poking around looking for something that would make an engine noise??!!
This is a rare factory color called Omaha Orange.
Here is my latest find, an original 1967 Imperial
Thanks for stopping by folks...
