69 Galaxie 500 Cop Car
I am new to the forum and live in Colorado. I am a police officer on a small municipal police department and have recently taken possession of my cities first police car a 1969 Galaxie 500 4 door.
Supprisingly the car is in fairly decent condition with the exception of the interior which is in horrible condition. The car is powered by a 390 with an automatic transmissions that seems to leak out the fluid as fast as I put it it. The 390 is in great condition and runs very well. The brakes on the other hand are pretty damn scary. The body is solid with minimal surface rust and severely faded white paint. All of the emergency equipment (i.e. lights, sirens, radio, spot lights etc.) is intact but in need of rewiring. All in all the car is very solid and should restore fairly well.
Now onto the problem I am having a hard time finding interior pieces (i.e. seat covers, headliner, door panels, plastic interior trim, etc.). If anyone can point me in the right direction for anyone reproducing or selling NOS parts for this car I would greatly appreciate it.
Thanks and I look forward to all your responses,
