1959 Ford Custom
Every now and then, there is an old Minnesota Highway Patrol unit advertised for sale. This one was listed in an online ad on Facebook Marketplace in the fall of 2019. The owner stated the unit has the original engine and transmission in it. This one has an automatic transmission. I was not aware any of MHP's '59 Fords were equipped with automatics, but it is entirely possible. The areas with the original paint on them look correct. The VIN indicates a police package. There isn't a doubt in my mind the vehicle is a legitimate former MHP unit. In the grand scheme of things, it appears to be in remarkably good condition.
