1950 Ford Custom Deluxe
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
Classic 1950 Ford Custom "Shoebox"
This 1950 Black Beauty has been professionally restored over the past year and a half, including a meticulous rebuild of the performance flathead 239 V8 (bored .060 over), with Holley 4 barrel carb, aluminum finned Offenhauser milled heads (only 4,000 since rebuild). Approximately $50,000 has been invested into this classic Shoebox so it is completely turn key and ready for you to enjoy.
The body is very straight with a beautiful glossy black paint job and the restored interior (including newer upholstered seats, headliner & door panels) is also in superb condition. All gauges are in excellent condition. Chrome is shiny and bright, as are the blue dot tail lights. Beautiful original dash and factory gauges. Headers and glass packs (with stainless tips) sound amazing. Original radio (not working) and magic air heater (rebuilt). The car has a clean title and is registered in California.
