SCPD’s 1961 Chevy Biscayne Patrol Car Wins 1st Place

Santa Cruz Police Department showed off our vintage patrol car a 1961 Chevy Biscayne at The Menlo Park and Ripon Police Departments 25th Anniversary Emergency Vehicle Display Show 2015.
SCPD’s 1961 Chevy Biscayne patrol car still has what it takes to win!
Officer Gallegos was proud to bring home two 1st place awards. 1st place Best Novelty Police Vehicle 1900- 1964 AND 1st place Police Chief’s Choice.

While most vintage cars came to the show on trailers, SCPD’s 1961 Chevy Biscayne rolled into Ripon, CA on its own power from Santa Cruz.

Officer Gallegos drove the car over 200 miles to Ripon, Ca and back to Santa Cruz. “Our 61 Chevy cruised over Pacheco Pass with no problems. This car is in excellent condition.”

We would like to give TWO special shout-outs of thanks! Thank you, Vincent Gallegos for detailing our beloved Chevy and getting it show ready. And, thank you to the group of volunteers from Hot Rods at the Beach who restored SCPD’s Chevy Biscayne.

1st place Best Novelty Police Vehicle 1900- 1964
1st place Police Chief’s Choice
Well done!
