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
A collectors dream come true! This is a true classic "SURVIVOR' automobile. Garage kept all its life, this one-owner 1953 Chevy Bel Air Sportsman Coupe is completely original inside and out. Original blue flame 6 cylinder engine w/power glide automatic transmission and the car still runs on the 6-volt electrical system. Optional equipment include: fender guards, power glide transmission, AM radio, heat & defrost, windshield washer, directional signals, back-up lights and more! This car was bought brand new in 1953 from Colonial Chevrolet, currently Hendrick Chevrolet, in Norfolk, VA and has been family owned since. Paint & interior are all original, and there are no rips or tears in the seat upholstery, door panels or headliner. I have had to replace some mechanical parts under the hood as well as the wheels & tires to keep the car operational, however, I have kept all original parts including the wheels and tires in case of a future rebuild. There is some mild corrosion on the passenger's door sill plate from the water valve leaking at some time during storage in the 1980's. Original factory radio resistors were repaired and the AM radio functions as originally designed. This car was truly only driven on Sundays as meticulously kept records document its true mileage. Maintenance is documented as the numerically increasing oil change stickers are attached to the drivers door jam. The car has never sat in the rain and never been smoked in. I also have 95% of the state inspection certificates that validate the 22,680 true miles on the car. I also have the title from 1985, original sales receipts, original key from the factory, case of motor oil from the cars production era and several other tidbits that make this car a true "survivor".
