1949 WSP car’s restoration has retired trooper recalling patrolling in Ford ‘Shoebox’ sedan
TACOMA - Six years after the pieces of a 1949 Washington State Patrol Ford "Shoebox" sedan were discovered for sale in Westport, it's been painstakingly restored and is now on display in the lobby of the LeMay - America's Car Museum in Tacoma through Father's Day weekend. A retired state trooper who is now 93 years old recalls what it was like to patrol in one of these cars 70 years ago.
