"Commando"

The vehicle may be a Cadillac Gage V-100 "Commando" Armored Car. Known as an XM-706 in the Army. Usually operated by Military Police. Not related to the Cadillac car company Cadillac Gage is now Textron Marine & Land Systems.

I was there for the riots, too.

Got in the morning the riots started. Went with grandmother on a Norfolk and Western passenger train. Had just turned 12. Remember riding a bike down a street and being passed by a tank. Interesting times. Saw a lot of destruction in certain parts of town. Our area stayed safe.

This photo was taken at the intersection of Grand River and Livernois Avenues in Detroit, MI. Key to the identification is the Dawson Taylor Chevrolet sign at the far left of the image. Here is their ad that appeared in the 1967 Detroit Yellow Pages:
