I believe the radio is a Mocom 70 and the siren a Federal Signal PA100. Here is a real guess...a Regency scanner on the passenger side...no idea the model. Am I close?

That is a regency, I believe I have one of those around somewhere. I removed it from my Dad's truck years ago. I got started in scanning listening to that and an old Bearcat 100XL that my dad bought me when I was a kid, which I believe I still may have somewhere in storage.
The regency still works, at least the last time I fired it up it did.

If I'm not mistaken, the Regency model shown is an ACT-R 10 H/L/U. I have one in my vintage shack. Picture attached for those that are interested.

Crystal Controlled & 2 Antennas To Receive

It Is Now In Scanner Heaven, But It Lasted A Long Time

Thanks For The Memories NYRHKY94

Another Mopar guy here. My first car was a '68 Plymouth Satellite 2dr hardtop, 273 2bbl, speed auto. In fact, mine was the same color (medium green) as yours. "Baby diahrrea green" my friends called it. I got it in 1994 for $1100. Not exactly a musclecar but it was straight and clean and a 2dr HT B-body is my favorite. I drove it daily for a couple years and had a sound system installed (I was in high school). My old man has a 68 Coronet convertible (small block) and a 70 Plymouth Suberbird (440-6bbl).

After I got rid of the Satellite, I got into turbo Shelby Dodge cars. Niiice.

Great memories on both fronts, vintage car w/vintage radio/electronics. The Regency scanner in the car was my second scanner, the first was a similar 8-channel version for just VHF Hi/Lo. In the mid-70s, I was a part-time dispatcher for a small town PD that had the Mocom 70 radio, 4 channel w/scan, and the Federal siren in the patrol car. AFAIK, the only true to the era (i.e. 1969-70) item in the pictured vehicle is the siren as both the scanner and the radio did not come along until about 1975. Not criticizing, just noting...I appreciate W4CRT sharing the photos. Moto-heads are welcome to correct my incomplete knowledge...

I tried to find out the exact model Mocom for 1967-69 but couldn't so I installed what I could find. Anyone have an idea? The scanner could be added on later as these cars usually were in service for 8-10 years. Here's a few more.
