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
1955 Chevrolet 210 $30,500
The first thing you notice is the body. It s Show Car Styling at its finest, and it s arrow straight. The Chrysler Atlantic Blue paint is gorgeous, as is the GM Silver Poly, making this 210 look a lot like its Bel Air brother. It s pretty obvious a master held the spray gun for this one! The best paint job in the world is worth nothing without proper prep, but this car shows attention to detail on the highest level. The next mistake people make is to reuse old, dented trim and rusty chrome. Not here, though--this stuff is amazing. All of the bezels, stainless and chrome from front bumper to back, from the side stainless to the hood ornament is show quality with no excuses. The lenses are new, as well. The last thing people overlook when they re doing a full restoration is glass. This car s new, tinted glass is perfect and scratch-free. Wheels can make or break a car, too. Chromed Chevrolet rally wheels look great with the 67 center caps. They re wrapped in brand new 215/70/15 BFGoodrich tires, white letter of course.
The interior is a nice mix of nostalgia and newer, more comfortable materials. You re staring at an immaculate dash, painted the same blue as the body, with new trim, a trick gauge cluster with Auto Meter vintage series gauges, a Classic Autosound stereo and a lot of gorgeous trim. You re sitting on cloth upholstery in blue and silver, the carpets blue while the headliners silver (different but very cool,) and the door panels use the same material as the seats. A neat touch is the custom gearshift selector lens on the column--its subtle, but it has detents for every gear in the 700R4 overdrive transmission underneath. There s a tilt column, four Pioneer speakers in total (two in the deck and two in custom kick panels) and a Grant Challenger steering wheel. A Vintage Air system keeps occupants cool in the summer, too--time for a cruise!
Under the hood is a tried and true small block, here in crate motor form. 350 Cubic inches weigh in at 350hp, and its a real smooth performer. A Holley 600cfm carb hides under a chrome air cleaner; chrome valve covers add additional sparkle. The motor exhales through a set of ceramic coated mid length headers and a true dual exhaust system. Power flows back through a TCI-built 700R4 overdrive automatic, built for long distance cruising, before ending up at a stock rear with 3.55 gears. Other goodies include a billet pulley system, a painted and polished A/C compressor, modern power steering, a bulletproof HEI ignition, a power booster pushing a dual bail master cylinder and a new battery. The compartment itself was smoothed and filled before its slick coat of blue went down. There s no problem driving this across the country or to your favorite ice cream parlor!
The suspension shows all new components and a detailing in line with its frame-off restoration. There are new shocks all around, new body mounts, new suspension components, new GM discs up front and more. The underside is finished in the same blue as the top while the frame is gloss black. Chrome exhaust tips add to the old school flavor. Sure its a little over the top, but very nicely done, and very much drivable!
