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
Gateway Classic Cars of Orlando is proud to present this a stunning 1955 Chevrolet Bel Air resto mod. Except for the modern aluminum wheels, this 55 Bel Air looks about as original as it did the day it rolled off the assembly line. The white-on-red paint is eye-catching from a distance, but it is the attention to details that will have this car drawing crowds wherever you take it with clean chrome trim, emblems and, of course, the iconic airplane hood ornament. Even the trunk is a time capsule! Inside, however, the interior has been fully customized with red velour throughout, diamond plate-look floor mats and a custom shift lever. Hidden just below the original factory radio is a modern AM/FM stereo head unit that is all played through a four--speaker system. Ensuring that this 1955 Chevrolet Bel Air is a true head turner is the V8 that rumbles to life under the hood. Starting life as a 305, this engine has, and it has also been upgraded with top-of-the line components including the forged pistons, rods, valves, rockers and heads. The heavy cam and 10.5:1 compression ratio make this car an even bigger head-turner when it is fired up. This engine is mated to a 5-Speed BorgWarner manual transmission, which sends power to the rear wheel through a 12-bolt Chevy rear end, and the driveshaft and u-joints are brand new. Driving this 1955 Chevrolet Bel Air will be just as fun as parking it as it has been upgraded with disc brakes up front and drilled rotors and air suspension in the rear. Options for the car include vinyl interior, AM/FM/C radio, seat belts, power brakes, aluminum wheels and radial tires.
