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

This 1954 Ford Customline Club Coupe has rarity, beauty, and style. So more than just a sleek black coupe, check out everything from the two-tone interior to the debut of the OHV motor. The design of the Club Coupe is a special one. It looks a bit sleeker than the Tudor sedan that was also offered, because the longer trunk line gives it some nice proportions. And theres rarity in this style, considering Ford made only one of these for almost every nine Tudors that came off the line. Its this uniqueness has likely contributed to why this one has been treated with care. You first notice the awesome brightwork. The 1954 cars had a revised grille that was so wide that it reached around the corners just like the bright bumper below it. The side trim is complete, right down to the full-length line that highlights the straightness of this sheetmetal. It all ends in a chrome rear light surrounds that hints at the tailfin era that was just around the corner (especially the Thunderbird coming the next year!) Even the trim in the rear looks great with the Ford family crest and the cool Fordomatic script that told others you could afford for the auto transmission option. All of this presents exceptionally well because the upgraded black paint provides a nice backdrop and plenty of gloss. There are even some cool custom pieces, like the upgraded hood ornament, drivers spotlight, side window overhangs, and Cadillac wheel covers. It all adds to the cool 1950s cruiser feeling. Inside, the red and white two-tone really continues the classic feeling nicely. And we love the thoughtfulness of how its intertwined in places like the contrast piping on the bright white seats. Theres even more nostalgia when you slip behind the wheel. This is where you can tell today that the Thunderbird was on its way. The engine-turned panel and nifty speedometer in a clear acrylic panel (currently for display) are hallmarks of the iconic personal coupe. As you look around the rest of this coupe, youre going to see more great vintage items. Its everywhere from the working AM radio to the very original-looking full size spare in the trunk. While youve already seen plenty of cool features, the best one is under the hood. 1954 was the first year for the new overhead valve V8. The U4 in the VIN tells you that the 239 cubic-inch powerplant is the factory-correct motor for this Ford. Its exceptionally showcased in the engine bay with the tall, bold red oil bath air cleaner and the valve covers to match. Youll love looking at all the original-style components, even the windshield washer fluid bag. On the road, youll be quite happy you chose a model year with the new motor because it gives this cruising Ford a little extra kick of power over the flathead cars. There are some nice everyday upgrades like a 12-volt electric system and even an electric fan. Plus, the three-speed Fordomatic automatic transmission keeps this distinct coupe an easy way to spend a day. Complete with owners manual, this Customline Club Coupe likes to stand out in all the best ways. So dont miss this affordable way to have a distinct classic in your garage. Call today!!!
