cool My XA Highway Patrol Interceptor

Hey guys , heres is a pic of my XA Interceptor (taken at the Melbourne Muscle Car and Mega Bike Show at the old exhibition building in 1994) I have just brough it back after it has sat in a chook shed since 1995. Do any of you "oldies" remember cop cars in this coulour ? Apparently they had the word police in black on the door and a black out line along the doors but that was it (oh , and a siren and single bluelight too)...can anyone shed any light on it ??

Actually the colour is correct , i know the colour your thinking of (Robbins Egg blue or something its called) , from what i have learnt from the Vic police museum there was only 2 or 3 in this colour (Blaze Blue) , one in Melbourne , one at Wallan and one stationed at Bennalla all patrolling the Hume but this is all i can find out.
It is basically a taxi pack with GT running gear , eg 351 , top loader, 9 inch diff , 4 wheel discs (yep an XA with 4WDiscs !!) Tramp rods on both sides , GT bonnet , brown saddle interior , black rubber floor mats , leather "holders" screwed to the kick panels and a special Stewart Warner Speedo with every MPH marked and no odometer.
I sold the car as only a shell and interior but im rebuilding it to be better than before !! And im putting on 15 x 8.5 and 15 x 6 Convo Pros instead of the Weld Pro Stars.
The Car has an interesting history as it was also one of the top cars in the Victorian Sprint Series a few years ago ......

I love my XA's too! Your's looks sensational DAZ.

And attatched is something that might be of interest. It's a metal plate that was found at a printing factory that's used to print magazines/newpapers off. (I don't know exactly what they're called). Anyway it's got a write up of the XA Highway cars from way back then.
