THIS CAR MATTERS: From the Archives 1940 Ford Patrol Car

With the 2015 Amelia Island Concours d’Elegance on the horizon, we decided to take a look back at a favorite from the THIS CAR MATTERS archives. Captain Keith Gaston helps tell the story of this 1940 Ford Patrol Car, one of the first of its kind, used by the Florida police to catch moonshine vehicles in the ’40s.

For its THIS CAR MATTERS movement, the Historic Vehicle Association is asking people to share their stories about special vehicles—ones that helped to shape their lives and communities, our history and our heritage.

Check out the video below and if you haven’t yet shared your story, head on over to the HVA’s THIS CAR MATTERS page to find out how you can participate.
