The 1964 ‘M6 Experiment’ was a study of Police procedure designed to determine the future of motorway policing. The M6, then 88 miles long, was controlled by one Command Centre from 9th March to 6th June and then returned to the three forces involved for a ‘control period’ of nineteen days from 7th June to 26th June. A BEA Bell 46J helicopter, crewed by a Police observer and radio operator, was used during both periods, whilst air and ground cameras were utilized for the first time. The Jaguar modelled wears the distinctive roof numbering which all ‘M6 Experiment’ cars used to enable them to be recognised from the air. Buy it now
