Reynolds, a Chicago resident and sergeant in the city’s police force, restored his sedan classic to be an authentic duplicate, and to remind all who see it of the brave badge-toting men and women who keep our streets safe.

“I wanted to make a rolling time capsule to honor the brave Chicago police officers who have faithfully served before me,” he said.
