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

This 1949 Ford is a great example of an old-school custom and it has quite a history. Built by noted customizer Joe Bailon, it made its debut in 1954 at the legendary Oakland Roadster Show in California. This was a time when customs with radical body mods were all the rage. This one is chopped, channeled, and sectioned with frenched headlights from a Merc and tailights from a 54 Pontiac. It laid dormant for many years before being resurrected by Jeff Nickells Customs. Jeff lovingly restored the car -- called the Shampoo Truck due to its use as a promotional vehicle for hair-care products -- and it pays homage to a great period in automotive history. The PPG red and black paint is highlighted by period-correct hand pinstriping. The custom two-tone bench seat interior features more striping on the dash. A 57 Caddy V8 provides smooth torquey power just as it did back in the day. And extensive body and chassis reinforcements assure that this time capsule piece can be driven and enjoyed.
