    I drove one of these my first year on the job. Oh how I remember it, it was comfortable, fast, had a great growler under the hood, solid red ruby to the front and an amber to the rear. But... it didn't look too good when I got it stuck in the mud. The chief was louder than the siren when he saw it! Now our cars look like space ships of area 51...lol!

    It could very well have been a detective unit. At that time, the detectives drove the same police package Gran Furys as patrol, sans the lights & decals. The inside was set up identically to the marked units, and they had a red spot. At night, during overlap, patrol drove these white unmarked cars as well.

    this car has nothing to identify it as a classic squad car.

    I was a police officer in Salinas in 1977 & most likely drove this car at one point on patrol. I still live in the Salinas area...if anyone knows where this car is I would love to stop by for a reunion!

    As an officer with San Juan Bautista PD in the mid to late 70's, I remember these Grand Fury's Salinas used, as well as San Benito County SO using Green colored Fury's. I drove a 74 all White Dodge Monaco. What a shame to see photos like this. These Fury's were decent patrol vehicles.
