a civ. staff car?

my Question might be considered "blasphemous" but what would you real staff car folks think about someone fixing a 1941 [civ.model] ford or chevrolet 4 door and painting it to look like a military staff car?

Cool...the more staff cars the better. I found a '50 Packard, then picked up a '49 (civie Packard) so I can have "Convoy Follows" and a "Convoy Ahead" signs. OD covers a lot!

There is a 4 door 56 Chevy here in Colorado that has military plates on the dash and the remains of MP markings.
