The City of Detroit acquires new Ford V8 sedan automobiles for its Police Department

First scene shows a line of new Ford V8 sedan cars parked side by side along the edge of a highway. The closest car displays a sign reading: "Ford, V8 Detroit Police Department." A spokesperson stands in front of the car and delivers some remarks. Next scene shows a white car parked next to the line of police cars, with a large sign on its roof and writing on its door. (The writing is difficult to decipher.) Individual Police officers are then seen standing next to each of the new Ford V8 automobiles, which are lined up along the highway edge, almost out of sight. Then the Police officers begin to drive the cars away, one at a time, successively, in a single file motorcade. Ford Company executives and Detroit city officials pose for a group picture.

Hundreds of thousands watch Auto Industry Golden Jubilee Parade in Detroit Michigan

The 1946 Golden Jubilee Parade celebrating the auto industry, in Detroit Michigan. A large crowd of approximately 750 thousand people watches from sidelines as antique automobiles drive past in the parade, along Woodward Avenue. The parade features a wide variety of antique and classic cars dating from as far back as the 19th century. Several jeeps carry persons, standing, who seem to be supervising the event. On a couple of occasions, cars stall and drivers must get out and hand crank them to restart, or push to get them running again. Some occupants are in costumes dating to the time of their cars. A Ford tractor pulls a float containing a Ford Fordson tractor. Another drives behind them. That is followed by a float showing the world and a message, "More food for a hungry world." The float also carries three men shoveling in a bread basket and a Ford tractor. A float carries the 999 race car built by Henry Ford, that set world speed records when driven by race driver Barney Oldfield. A 1946 Lincoln Continental that is possibly carrying Henry Ford, is followed by a large brass band, and more antique cars. A small brick building is seen on a float with a sign reading: "1896, The Original Ford car in First Workshop, 58 Bagley Avenue." The next float carries a 1940 Ford Station wagon, and a 1903 model Ford. Behind it are more antique cars. One stalls and need a push to restart. Scene changes to new perspective offering wider view of Woodward avenue, which is lined with tall Golden Jubilee signs. A pause in the parade allows spectators to spill into the street and some buses to pass. Closeups of more antique cars and their occupants. Closeups of the 1896 Ford workshop, showing the original Ford car inside, through a cutaway in the brick side.
