1971 Mercury Monterey Patrol Car


  • Comments: 429 CI V8 Police Interceptor Engine paired to 3 speed automatic transmission. 1 of 564 cars produced between 1967 and 1974. Believed to be the only one left in existence. Multiple Award winner. We acquired the Patrol Car from Mr. Miller who was a 20-year Veteran with the Indiana Highway Patrol. Purchased new by the State of Indiana in 1971 to be issued that year to its troopers. The car was first assigned 5141 to a Sgt. Claude Trent of District 41, Connersville Indiana. Mr. Miller had the privilege of sharing the driving with Sgt. Trent as Rookie Trooper his first day on the job. After 25,000 miles, the car was re-assigned to a James White who would later become the Godfather of Trooper Millers first born child. Later purchased 1972 for $980 by a private individual from an auction and was in his possession until 1987. In 1987 Mr. Miller located a 1971 Mercury in hopes to restore one to Highway Patrol specs and low and behold the car he found was commission 5141. The very car he drove his first day on the job. After an automobile accident that year Mr. Miller released the car to Indiana’s State Police Museum where the car sat un-restored for years. Fast forward to 2006 Mr. Miller was given the car back where over the next year it was restored to its’s former glory. Loaded with all the original equipment, AM Radio, Power Windows, Rear Window Defogger, Certified 140 speedo. Lots of extras such as Billy club, blanket, first aid kit, extra door panels, flash light and camera, road flares, fire extinguisher, spare tire and jack.
