Q: O que significa Can I get a Texas 27 29 check on one Ford.?
A: It sounds like police codes. Some official groups (like local police departments or military or emergency services etc) will have number codes that they can say very quickly over the radio. They do this so that it is hard for regular people to listen and get worried (or criminals realising what they are looking for). But it also is faster than having to explain things in full sentences, and is a little clearer to hear over a radio. So they may have one number being a code for an accident, and another code for a drunk, and another code for an injury that needs an ambulance sent to help them, etc etc.

I don't know the codes that are used, and it can be different in different parts of the country. But that is what it sounds like, "can I get a Texas 27 29 check" so asking someone on the radio to check something for them, using Texas state codes 27 and 29. So it could be asking someone on the radio to look up a driver license check (make sure it's still current/valid), or to check for warrants on this person, or if the car was reported as stolen, or checking something else. And the "on one Ford" is talking about the car involved, so they have 1 car and it's a Ford brand car, that they want looked into.

That is my best guess.
