1949 Packard Super 8
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.

The dream Convertible Victoria for the collector or enthusiast!
For 1949 Packard marked its Golden Anniversary and started celebrating in grand fashion with a dealers' drive-away of 2,000 gold painted Packards. Packard would upgrade the trim for their 50th year with the front bumpers showcasing full chrome, versus the painted centers from the previous year in addition to center-placed side trim on certain models. These modest changes and incredible line-up of models resonated with the American public who helped to make 1949 the second largest production year in the company’s history.
