Re: 1954 Mercury V8 in a Ford police unit !

The Merc engine in a Ford was a pretty common Police Interceptor use. City police departments rarely used it, but highway patrols, and Sheriff departments did. There are very few of them around now because the cops beat the crap out of the cars, and they generally went to the junk yard because they were the low line stripped cars, and they were pretty well shot when they got rid of them.
