1950 Plymouth Business Coupe police car


Formerly in service to the city of Hundred, West Virginia

Want to be the hit of every local parade and car show? How could you miss when you’re driving a 1950 Plymouth Business Coupe police car?

According to the party selling this ’50 Plymouth, it was one of the first police cars in the town of Hundred, West Virginia.730319_21645832_1950_Plymouth_Business+Coupe

Yes, there is a town in West Virginia named Hundred. In fact, it reportedly was named for the town’s founders, a couple who lived to be 109 and 106 years of age.

Anyway, the advertisement for the car on ClassicCars.com notes that with the car comes a .38 special, a police uniform, an original ticket book, billy club and more.

“This is a one of a kind and a beautiful car, just look at it!” the seller writes. “The car is in excellent condition and runs great! We take it out on Sundays and get crowds looking at us.”

The car is located in Brave, Pennsylvania, another town with an interesting name. Brave is located on the Pennsylvania-West Virginia state line, just to the northeast of Hundred. (We couldn’t find any story about how Brave got its name.)

The ’50 police car is unrestored and powered by a flat-6 engine linked to a manual transmission. The seller is asking $22,500 but will entertain offers.
