think this is a Ford Zephyr, about the right era for you? Seems to be rather understated, no logos or no rooftop GARDA sign. Prob. either navy or black.

Lledo did a Garda set a few years ago, can't vouch for their authenticity, sometimes they can use their imagination.

Not so sure about the breakdown truck, not many US marques to be found in ireland.

It was very kind of them, Minister. They even gave me somewhere to stay for the night, and even offered me free B & B for six full years... and so hospitable were they, it took my solicitor friend to persuade them to let go!

 

(On condition I stay away from railway modellers for ever.....)

 

Anyway, I am glad I got home as it was my ninth birthday the next day.
