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

Frame Off Built Monterey ZZ4/350 V8 700R4 4 Speed Automatic PS A/C /// Purchased in 2008 as a fully restored driver, this slick Merc has been carefully finessed into a one-of-a-kind piece of art. Of course, every work of art needs a solid canvas, and under the cars many modifications youll find solid steel that, based on appearance, has never been botched or wrinkled in any significant way. That smooth surfacing makes for a super clean profile thats been laboriously block-sanded and covered in a stunning combination of Ford Red Candy Metallic and Jet Black 2-stage. And ultimately, the car debuted as an excellent looking classic that walks a fine line between traditional street rod swing and outrageous SoCal flair. Sourced directly from GM Performance Parts, this Montereys spry personality comes courtesy of a 350 cubic inch ZZ4 crate engine that twists stout 10 to 1 compression into 355 horsepower and 405 lb./ft. of torque. Behind that mill, a tough 700R4 4-speed features an adjustable lock-up converter. That gearbox drives a sturdy, highway friendly axle, which rides on traditional leaf springs and small lowering blocks. Opposite that axle, an independent front-half features power rack-and-pinion steering. Power front disc and rear drum brakes are a welcome addition and big performance upgrade. And everything rides on old school steelies, which spin 215/75R15 Dean Alpha 365 whitewalls around what appear to be 50s Dodge hubcaps. If youre looking for a road ready hot rod thats guaranteed to draw a crowd wherever you go, your search is officially over!
