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. Ford Company Chief of Internal Security, Harry Bennett is standing to the left of a uniformed Police officer (who may be James E. McCarty). Bennett converses with Police Commissioner John P. Smith to his left. Closeups of segments of the group. Views of the officials dispersing and some more closeups. Finally, the new cars leave in a "parade" of sorts, led by motorcycle police. Traffic is stopped for them as they drive away from the photo site.
