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

For Sale, 1955 Chevy Bel Air, 2 Door Hardtop

This is a great project car for those of you that are looking to have your own Tri-Five color, interior, and setup. Clean slate - not someones choices that you are stuck with. With some updates it can be driven and you can work on it as needed, this beats having the car sit in your garage for 2-3 years before you even get to take it out on the road. 

Engine V8 327 rebuilt (runs great), automatic transmission (has stall speed issues), late model corvette rear end with solid gears, flow-master exhaust, performance headers, new fuel tank, fuel lines, brakes lines and rebuilt drums, radiator, and most of the key engine components replaced. Car is primed on the exterior.

Parts for the car are at least 80% accounted for and I continue to collect replacement parts. You won't have to spend a bunch of time searching swap meets for items and vendors like Eckler’s and Danchuk have what you need. These cars are easy to work on and find parts.

Quick back story: this 55 hardtop has been in my family for ~40 years and came into my possession ~18 years ago. I started working on restoring it and then was deployed through my reserve unit, and then life and career took over after that point. The vehicle has been stored in a barn under cover during this time and the effects of mother nature are reflected in the price and pictures. Driver side quarter panel is in fair shape. I had a family member damage the driver side door so that has been replaced and needs a new window. 

Fair warning: as I fix items on the car and replace more of the stainless and chrome the price will be increased. These Tri-Fives go for double my posted price once customized and/or restored.
