1940 Plymouth Deluxe
Car for sale by Automotion in Troy, New York 12182
From around 1956 until the mid 1980s, Dodge, Plymouth and even Chrysler squads were the most ubiquitous police cars in North America. In fact, the biggest department, the NYPD, used Plymouth and Dodge squads almost exclusively until the rear-drive M body car was finally axed in 1989.
The no-frills Savoy two-door sedan was home to another engine of considerable repute, the infamous 413 Max Wedge, a Super Stock monster block Chrysler introduced in the spring of 1962.

Classic Car Overview
1940 Plymouth Deluxe $33,900
This 1940 Plymouth Coupe is a beautifully finished street rod powered by a 354ci Hemi V8. The current owner has owned the car since the 1980s, and performed all of the present modifications during their ownership.
The seller found the 354ci Hemi as an NOS crate motor, which had never been installed in a car prior to going into this Plymouth. The engine is unmodified, and is backed by a GM Turbo 400 automatic transmission. The car starts easily and runs very smoothly.
This Plymouth performs very well on the road, with tight closing doors, and very good fit and finish throughout. The owner liked using the car as a cruiser, and fitted it with a 2.73 rear end for comfortable cruising. At normal road speeds the car is very quiet inside, with a slight rumble transmitted into the cabin. The front suspension is independent, and the owner converted the front brakes to discs.
The interior is nicely trimmed, with modern power seats, integrated seat belts, and power windows. The dash has a custom aluminum face with Autometer gauges. A custom headliner is fitted, and includes a recessed panel with chrome trim.
The bodywork is mix of original Plymouth and custom touches. The roof has not been chopped, and clear reproduction glass is fitted. Much of the stock trim has been retained, including the beltline trim, grille, and enameled Plymouth badging. The headlights are deeply recessed into the front fenders. The paintwork is deep and glossy, with a rich finish.
