1953 Dodge Coronet
Sedan Car for sale in La Crescenta, California 91214
La Crescenta, CA
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
1953 Dodge Coronet $19,950
In 1953 Dodge took HEMI technology from parent company Chrysler and placed it in the Coronet for the very first time turning the auto industry on its ear by setting over 100 land speed records at Bonneville Salt Flats. This beautiful example was treated to an 18 months body-off rotisserie restoration by an auto museum when I found it and bought it. Inside and out, this classic is a work of art and will please everyone at your local cruise night and car show.
The original numbers matching engine is a 3.9 liter 241 Cu. In. Dodge Red Ram HEMI producing amazing horsepower for its time in front of a Gyromatic semi-manual transmission. The body was a rust free car taken down to bare metal and professionally assembled using NOS parts. A fully documented album full of color photos is included as well a many extra parts (starter, trim, etc).
This was the first Dodge to receive a HEMI and as they say, the rest is history!
