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

1955 Cadillac Coupe DeVille Heres to the past they can kiss my glass I hope shes happy with him Heres to the girl who wrecked my world That angel who did me in I think the devil drives a Coupe de Ville I watched them drive away over the hill Not against her will, Ive got time to kill Down in Brokenheartsville...Joe Nichols Hold on tight ladies and gents, theres one cool cad in house right now and it has shown up as a 1955 Cadillac Coupe Deville. Large would be the buzzword on this 1950s big coupe. Bathed in Goddess Gold, and two toned on the top with Alpine White, she sports plenty of chrome, some nifty fins and wide whites that keep this huge skate firmly attached to the road. Richly appointed with options, and a cloud like ride, we are off like a prom dress to the country club to bat some little white balls around. Exterior Double D Dagmars lead the way and have an egg crate styled chromed grille behind them and a surrounding chrome trimming above and a bumper below. All this wraps around the front quarters and continues with a very tasteful below the belt line trim with Cadillac badging written in your grandmothers handwriting just above. Through the door it streaks and on the rear quarter makes a sharp turn upward and forms a faux vent on the rear quarter bump out. A beautiful rocker trim runs from stem to stern, and moves gracefully around the fender skirts, eventually to the rear bumper which has crowning fins with taillights atop. Flow through the bumper exhaust and smaller bumper-ettes protect the spacious trunk lid. For the roof, which is bathed in Alpine White, there are plenty of chrome trimmings surrounding the windows, and mind you not a straight line of it to be seen! Body is all bathed in Goddess Gold, and how apropos for this luxury liner. Wide whites are on all 4 corners, and Caddy caps in shiny polish form are covering the wheels. Plenty of WOW factor here folks. Interior A swing of the large doors is much like opening a safe door. Here we can see the attention to detail the designers of the time took to make sure all is really looking great with no expenses spared. Utilizing several surface treatments from white vinyl to gold vinyl and even some tufted and buttoned square stitched broadcloth then we stitch all this and add a horizontal metal panel with some power toggles for the windows, and pepper it with a Caddy crown, and elongated Chevron and some shiny handles, and we have only described the doors! For the seating we note more tufted and buttoned square paneled broadcloth in gold for the inserts, and white leather bolsters, all bordered with cream piping. The seats are cracked in the leather areas and are trimmed with large chrome surrounding tub accenting. The rear seat is as impressive with a central white leather split panel including a fold down armrest. The original dash is a mixture of the gold leather, cream paint, and plenty of horizontal ribbing and shiny trimming surrounds and knobs. The two-tone steering wheel fronts this dash and is in excellent condition. Gold carpet floods the floors, and a wonderful cream headliner is separated with arched chromed trim pieces at each seam. A Wonderbar radio is noted, as is a headlight sentinel on the dash top to drivers left. Drivetrain Under the large hood, sits an impressive 331ci V8 which is original to this car. Its all in black and appears well detailed, with some slight paint chipping and minor patina. A single 4-barrel Carter carb is atop, and on back a 4-speed Hydramatic which pushes power back to a 3.36 rear axle. Undercarriage A combination of nice patina and some surface rust is noted throughout the undercarriage. A solid structurally sound X frame is present and rust free floorpans rockers and toe kicks are seen. Power drum brakes are all around and coil springs for the front, and leaf springs for the back, provide the ride. Drive-Ability She fired right up and on the test track performed well. There are some misfires though, in the form of the power antenna does not work, the seat motors are in op, and the passengers rear window does not have any power to it. The clock does work but is disconnected due to a constant battery drain. Also noticed a pull to the left under braking, hard or light...it pulled. We do note that the original Cadillac Identification Card is still tucked in place on the radiator support, great history!!!! Big, buxom, bodacious and beautiful with some slight TLC needed on the electric convenience areas. Car runs great and looks all the part with no rust, and lots of chrome. The bigger the better and this one is just nearly the best!
