This Ranger has 80,620 actual miles and has been in storage most of it's life.  I bought it in 1972 and drove it to high school, then had it restored into a police car in 1988.  This is not an original police car but has all the equipment with it.  I had the roof bubble wired in at one time for shows and parades.  The light, whip antenna, siren, Motorola 2-way radio head and magnetic police signs are included, as are the 4 original Edsel wheel covers.  If you were in Charlottsville, Virginia in 1989 you might have seen it at the Edsel Owners Club national meet where it took first place in the modified catagory.  It wouldn't take much to bring it back to that condition.
