With customizable unmarked versions available and a variety of grilles, lightbars, pushbars, spotlights, wheels and other pieces, the Motormax Crown Vic seems like it can be made to match just about any department's cruiser (at least in North America) at minimal expense.
K9 unit not included.

I really like this little car. It's such a pure Mini, all one color with no fender flares, no rally stripes, no accessory lights. Just factory-matched Blaze Orange for a bit of cheek and a set of actual Minilite wheels providing just the right stance. The interior is beautiful, retaining the car's original right-hand-drive configuration and dainty little four-speed automatic shifter on the floor. It even has a set of period UK license plates and matching California vanity plates with the same characters. This is one of my favorite vintage Minis, even though it isn't a Cooper. In fact, I may even like it more because it isn't a Cooper. It's an economy runabout with a nod to convenience, a little retro style and the ability to park virtually anywhere. What's not to like?

rat-rod '51 sedan and a beautifully restored '54 Chieftain there, and most recently this unrestored survivor '51 Chieftain DeLuxe.
