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.

Classic Car Overview

Gateway Classic Cars of Scottsdale is excited to offer this survivor quality 1951 Pontiac Chieftain four-door sedan for sale right now in in our Arizona showroom, located in North Phoenix. The Chieftain was one of the first cars from Pontiac to receive a post-war refresh, as everything in their line up before 1949 was based on 1942 model year cars. A victorious America is certainly evident in this car where a new middle class was emerging, and more consumers were becoming automobile owners for the first time. This Chieftain has been repainted since new but comes in its factory Palmetto Green color. Tons of chrome can be found everywhere on this General Motors classic and make this Pontiac such a wonderful car to look at, let alone drive. Check out that Pontiac Chief hood ornament too; what a throwback! Inside this Lead Sled youll see a Gray cloth interior with bench seats along with one of the biggest clock housings youve ever seen and an AM radio for the whole family to tune into on a weekend outing. The gauge set-up was made for the driver to make sure his pride and joy was running as it should, with readings for speed, water temperature, oil pressure, battery monitor and fuel level. Heater controls are also included for those cold mornings and are easily accessible behind the steering wheel, which is of course adorned with (you guessed it) more chrome. The numbers matching (according to the seller) 268 CID Straight Eight 8-cylinder engine fills the engine bay, which produced 103 horsepower back in 51. Not fast, sure, but youll be amazed at how smooth and quiet these engines run and their reliability is well renowned to this day. GMs 4-speed Hydramatic Automatic transmission with the shifter located on the column gets you down the road with ease and efficiency. Theres just 71,000 original miles (according to the seller) on this Chieftain with only two owners from new- a real collector!
