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

So what do you call this incredible 2-door, a 1954 Ford Crestline thats a modern car underneath or a modern car that looks like a Crestline? The engineering involved in melding the two so seamlessly is extremely impressive, and the result is a car that looks like an old-school custom yet drives like a modern muscle car. This pro-built Crestline started with a super-straight car, it was then chemically stripped bare, and rebuilt it from the ground up 2008, only 2,431 miles ago. The arrow-straight sheetmetal is the result of a very thorough build and you can be certain that serious work went into getting it to look this good, including replaced rear quarters and front floors. Theres not a ripple or wave in the bodywork to speak of, and the subtle modifications blend invisibly with the original details. Note the clear headlights, restored door handles, and beautifully sculpted quarter panels with molded-in fender skirts. Then theres the Maroon Metallic paint that seems to glow from within, an old-school trick that involves a special blend of pearls and metallic. After 10 years its not a perfect finish anymore, but it is definitely well above average and still knocking on the door of show quality contender in the eyes of many. Trimmed-out taillights, beautifully re-chromed bumpers, and a bright factory grille are just a few of the wonderful details that went into the car, finishing off a truly attention-grabbing Ford. If youve ever driven a custom hot rod with an absolutely dialed-in interior, youll find yourself right at home behind the billet wheel. Its not 1954 inside anymore, thanks to custom leather bucket seats and a fully tricked dashboard that was seamlessly integrated into the old Fords cockpit. They worked overtime to get OEM levels of fit and finish, and everything from the Classic Instruments gauges to the HVAC system with ice cold A/C works like they should. The door panels are beautifully done and match the seats, and its worth noting that all the power features work, including power seats and windows, and the powerful JVC double din AM/FM/Bluetooth stereo system with remote and speakers stashed throughout the interior. Even the back seat was finished to the 9s, and it doesnt look anyone has ever even sat in it. That custom center console houses a Lokar shifter that powers the AOD transmission below, the tilt column is an aftermarket Ididit unit, and there are seatbelts front and back for added safety. The trunk is still very spacious, and its been finished off with custom panels and carpeting to match the interior of the cabin. Man, this 54 is absolutely dialed-in inside! Fords 5.0 liter V8 needs no introduction, that uses a new Holley 600CFM carburetor for maximum reliability. Borrowed from a 2000 Explorer, the torquey small block remains a great runner and is virtually indestructible when properly maintained, so they wisely left it pretty stock and just dressed it up with chrome and polished accents. Lots of fresh parts are there, including the chromed brake booster and dual master cylinder, bright valve covers, a dual-filtered air cleaner, and a big Griffin aluminum radiator with electric fans that keep it cool. Shorty headers feed a dual exhaust system, which snakes past the Explorers AOD 4-speed automatic transmission that was rebuilt in 2018 and around the rebuilt rear end (2015) full of highway-friendly modern gears. Handling is sharper than youd expect, because it also carries a Fatman front end clip and adjustable air shocks out back, along with power front disc brakes and power rack-and-pinion steering. Bright American Racing Torque Thrust wheels are an appropriate choice for a hybrid like this, and they carry BFGoodrich T/A performance radials at all four corners. Builds like this are some of the most impressive cars we see. The level of OEM fit and finish is hard to beat, and when theyre engineered this well, you know that you wont have headaches down the road. Documented with loads of build photos and maintenance receipts, this is one special Crestline that surely wont last long. Call today!
