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 Ford Crown Victoria Any time we get stunning 50s era Detroit metal into our Classic Auto Mall showroom, it tends to attract a lot of attention and usually doesnt stick around very long. This is a 1955 Ford Fairlane Crown Victoria that has been painstakingly restored to its top of the Ford line status. Its the perfect car for anyone who wants an accurate, exceptionally well-done restoration for half the price of doing it themselves. There is 50s cool then there is 50s AWESOME and this car definitely fits the latter. The beneficiary of a rotisserie restoration less than 500 miles ago, this classic is dripping with all the trappings one would expect from a luxury car of that era...Continental kit rear bumper, in bumper exhaust, factory front and rear bumper guards, fender skirts, and the list goes on and on. Exterior With a true to form 50s color palette, we are greeted with straight steel panels minding their gaps, and bathed in two tone Tropical Rose, and Snowshoe White. It is broken up by the polished stainless of the now famous Fairlane strip which flows gracefully from the top of the front fenders down the side of the car and hits the taillights mid fender. Centered on the Fairlane strip in the middle of the doors are great looking badging emblems with gold crown, and silver Victoria in your grandmothers handwriting. Along the rocker panels of the car, spotless stainless trim highlights pronounced rear fender skirts. Perfect glass that is in excellent shape all around is accented by the Crown Victoria exclusive chrome basket handle roof piece and stainless window trim. The roof is pretty in Tropical Rose (pink). Out back, the jet-age taillight lenses look new and are topped by a small fin which houses the backup lights. The trunk is backed by a Continental Bumper complete with metal enclosed spare tire. Details abound, with a unique finned radio antenna mounted on the trunk, lock cylinder covers all around, and dual chromed exterior rear-view mirrors mounted on both doors. Wide whites wrap polished wheel covers, that have a centered cloisonn Ford Badge. Interior Looking like it was plucked right out of a Silk City Dining Car, the beautiful White and Magenta combo has a firm but comfortable feel, as well as all the aesthetics that come with the mid 50s. The door panels which mimic the Fairlane Strip are Magenta up top, and White on the bottom. Climb in and youll be surrounded by rose horizontal tufted inserts and ultra-wide white vinyl bolsters which are on front and back benches. The back bench is noteworthy as it has an armrest inserted and above is framed by a multiple stepped V with the Ford logo inside...just beautifully cool in its own way. These seats are fronted by a perfect dash, in Magenta and White metal, and with all correct instruments. All this is floating within an impeccable black thick pile carpet. The headliner is just as impressive on the inside with the stainless basket handle breaking it up, and in white vinyl. The trunk has had the once over with snowshoe paint, and the correct ford plaid trunk liner. Drivetrain The original 272ci V8 is looking fine in its orange painted block and intake, black valve covers and a showroom condition gray oil bath air cleaner, all complete with correct decals. Absolutely no corrosion under the hood, supple hoses and a pristine radiator. On top of the engine we see a single 2-barrel carburetor, and on back is a Ford-O-Matic 3-speed automatic transmission. All power goes rearward to a Ford 9-inch rear. Undercarriage Very clean and definitely rust-free environment with a now black and white environment. Black frame and drivetrain, and white floor pans that show nothing but road dirt. For the suspension we note very nicely restored independent coil springs in front, and leaf springs on the rear. Drum brakes are all around, and a rust free exhaust system has been installed. Drive-Ability My test driver partner in crime would be perfectly satisfied if every car was from the 50s, however variety is the spice of life, and this one has plenty of good taste. The car starts right up, runs like a champ, and rides like a dream. All instruments, fans etc were functioning, and I wanted to take the remainder of the day off and drive to the shore, but I could not get permission... If you are into 50s ultimate cool, with a smattering of creature comforts, diner like interior, and plenty of stainless shine, then this is retro Fairlane may have your name on it. With a color combo that was probably in your grandparents bathroom on the first floor of their rancher, it is simply dripping with the mid 1950s, and is all in excellent condition, perfectly restored.
