Help Us Preserve Arcadia's Classic Police Car !

$640 of $2,500 goal

Raised by 6 people in 70 months


The Arcadia Historical Society is asking you to help us in the restoration and preservation of the Arcadia Police Department 1959 Ford Galaxy 500 patrol car. This classic car is fully functional and represents a much time in our nation's history. This wonderful example of mid-century automotive workmanship fascinates the onlooker and draws large crowds when displayed or driven in various community outreach activities. Young people who've never seen a roll up window or wind wing are awestruck and amazed, while older folks who remember those "Fabulous Fifties" gather about with fond recollection of a much different era . Your donation is greatly appreciated and will insure the sustainability of this classic Arcadia Police car's future for years to come! Please help us with a donation today!


Appreciatively Yours,

Gene Glasco

Thank you one and all for your tax deductible contributions in helping the Arcadia Historical Society maintain and restore the 1959 Ford police car. A "work in progress" this is, but given time and continued support, our restoration goals will surely be achieved.

Our power steering pump is failing, and a mechanic's report tells us that the engine block is very old and a cylinder is ineffective and loosing compression. Please help the Arcadia Historical Society with your donation. It matters not as to how much you contribute. All donations are sincerely appreciated and fully tax deductible on your federal income tax return. Please help us keep Arcadia's mid-century police department history alive with your contribution today. The Arcadia Historical Society is a 501-3(c) non-profit organization.
