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 Before they became the most widely used police interceptor the Crown Victoria was introduced as the top of the line model for Ford in 1955. Fairlane replaced the Crestline model and although the Crown Vic and Fairlane look similar the Crown Vic had more trim including the iconic bow that runs over the roofline. This 55 is a really neat classic that is owned by a good friend. We have sold many vehicles for this owner in the past and every single one has been a very well built car. If he is listing something with us we are always 100% confident that it is mechanically sound. This car was a barn find that had been parked away since the late 60s. In fact the last time it was tagged was 1966. The car has a very cool style and has been entirely gone through except for the body and paint. He purposely left it alone so it continued to have that barn find aged looking exterior. We hesitate to call it a rat rod because it is nice throughout and all of the stainless/chrome is like new but it does kind of have that style. It is done in a Red and White combo that has faded in the perfect way. You could easily finish it out with fresh paint but personally we like the look as is. It has very nice Frank Palmer pinstriping throughout and Palmer is known as one of the best in the biz. The rear tail lights are from a 56 Mercury which give it a cool custom look from the back. The car rides on nice American Racing Chrome wheels that are wrapped with Diamond Back white wall tires. Pop the hood and you will see the drivetrain is where a lot of time and work was invested into the car. It has a 60 over 312 Y Block motor that runs very well. It is fitted with a Clay Smith cam, John Mummert intake, valley cover, Thunderbird valve covers, custom alternator bracket, adjustable rocker arm assembly, and an Edelbrock carburetor. The car runs great and sounds good as well through the new 2 inch exhaust. It is a nice reliable driver and has zero heat issues with the 4 core radiator and mechanical fan. The suspension and brakes were entirely rebuilt and utilizes a dual master cylinder with new disc brakes up front. It also has a Borgeson power steering set up which makes it a comfortable car to cruise around in. Paired with the motor is a 700R Phoenix transmission with Wild cat adapter and a new drive shaft. The wiring was all redone and converted to 12 volt. Another nice addition include the new port electric wipers. The interior of the car is all new and done in Red. It has a split bench seat up front and in back there is a fold down armrest in the middle. The upholstery, carpet, door panels and headliner all look excellent. The dash looks really clean and the owner did something pretty cool when he decided to add additional gauges for the Volt, Fuel, Water, and Oil pressure. Instead of cutting on the dash or adding one of those underdash units he utilizes some of the original design layout. 1st the ashtray was removed and then the Magic Aire system cont
