This special police vehicle was ordered by the city of Canton, Ohio in 1937 to maintain control at the violet street strikes at area mills. It was in service for more than 50 years without a break down.

The car features 10 gauge steel armor throughout the body, 1.125 inch thick bullet-proof window glass wîth opening chromed gun ports and multiply bullet-resistant tires wîth inner liners. It also has a 2-way Motorola Police radio wîth a secondary backup radio system standard. In 1937 the company that custom fitted the armor guaranteed the car to be bullet-proof for any bullets up to 45 caliber gun shots.
