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

Body was off the frame and on a rotisserie during a total restoration. This is an excellent car in all regards. Restored in Nevada by a man that only restored shoeboxes. I sold it 16 years ago to a collector. He has been a very good customer typically having about 5 high quality cars at a time. He gets bored and sells them within a year or two. Not this Ford, it was far to good to let go! It was the crown jewel of the many cars hes owned. Not only is it cosmetically excellent, but the car functions like new too. He put 7,000 careful, troublefree miles on the car. He drove it over an hour to Volo and almost did a U-turn back home. It includes great photos of the restoration and reproduction sales literature. EXTERIOR: Beautiful Sheridan blue. Its decked out with accessories including a metal windshield visor, correct skirts with 3 ribs, Ford fog lamps, very rare rear window wiper and in addition it also has reverse lights, bumper guards, windshield squirters, dual mirrors and hood ornament. Even the white wall tires are the correct Firestones. Rims are restored and has the deluxe trim. The body has no rust, it is very straight. Overall the paint is polished a high gloss. There are some flaws, but considering it was restored 17 years ago I think the body and paint are proven winners. Every single piece of chrome was redone and sparkles. Every piece of stainless trim was polished like new. All of the glass is Ford script. All the rubber gaskets and fuzzy seals around the windows were replaced. Door jambs are restored, latches detailed, sill plates and weatherstrips replaced. INTERIOR: Completely restored to factory new condition. Has the proper two toned gray upholstery. The headliner, visors, armrests, door panels were reupholstered just like it was when it was new. Has the proper rubber mat in front, carpet in back. The dash area is restored so nice it is a pleasure just to look at it. The metal is painted a mirror finish. Every gauge, lense, chrome knob and bezel are like new. Steering wheel restored like new. Inside the glove box looks new, the light works. Actually everything works- the original radio, clock, gauges, interior lights etc. ENGINE COMPARTMENT: Everything under the hood was rebuilt, restored and detailed to original specs. Correct wiring, hoses, clamps etc. Has optional windshield washers and oil filter. The flathead V-8 purrs. Drive this car anywhere. TRUNK COMPARTMENT: Also like new. It has the original type rubberized sealer, correct mat, cardboard side walls, jack and spare restored to match the other rims. Correct white wall tire. Under the trunk lid is painted, latches are detailed. UNDERSIDE: Like I said, the body was off the frame and on a rotisserie. The underbody is all spotless metal painted body color, its mint. The entire chassis was apart, rebuilt and painted black. Shocks, brake lines, brake hoses, exhaust etc was replaced. Has 3-speed trans with functional overdrive. If you want an old car that will do nothing but bring you pleasure, this is it. Quality fit, finish and function.
