1954 Ford Crestline
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
In 1952 Ford decided that a redesign of its car was needed and so the Crestline got an upgrade which led Ford to beat Chevy to a redesign by a full year. This also led to many sales over the course of the Crestline Skyliner era, with the 1954 variation being the last of the generation. 1954 featured upgrades from the previous models by Ford that included new suspension and had a unique feature in that a Plexiglas panel was placed over the top of the front driver and passenger. A wraparound windshield and curved rear glass finished out the then modern look of Fords lineup.
Features in this Custom Crestline consist of rear fender skirts; stainless steel trim package; two-tone paint; dual sport mirrors; power windows; factory trunk mat; jack; and spare tire. Upgrades consist of a re-plated 1954 Desoto grille that was floated in the front cowl; stamped louvered hood; Laker side pipes; dual exhaust with chrome plated billet mufflers; continental stainless tire kit; shaved trunk lock with power trunk; custom wire wheels; white wall radial tires; and a 1.5" drop. It also comes with the original split grille and bumper guards; trim; factory Coronado trunk spare tire cover; front factory hood emblem with airplane hood topper; and a custom car cover.
This 1954 Ford was sold new in California and made its way to Spokane, WA in the 1960s. After 20 years it ended up with a collector in Victoria. BC and spent several years being restored to the beautiful example seen today. The two-tone paint is water based and the pinstriping on the car is all hand painted. A new roof panel was also installed in 2010. Its a well-done classic that is ready to go.
