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 Ford Thunderbird $99,950
Presented in classic Thunderbird Turquoise Blue over a two-color Turquoise and White interior, this 1955 Thunderbird is a stellar early production example of the rare and desirable First Generation classic American roadster, and was subject to a complete professional restoration, which was then masterfully finished in correct Ford Turquoise, and has limited sunny-day miles since.
The restoration was undertaken with an eye to keeping this T-Bird as close to the way it rolled off the assembly line in early 1955 as possible. The body boasts correct panels gaps and fit, all of the brightwork has been refinished or replated, and the car even rides on wide white wall tires with correct factory wheel covers. The engine bay is also restored to new-stock condition, with an eye toward originality throughout. The interior is expertly restored to a very high level and presents extremely well, with finishings, gauges, knobs and controls all in outstanding condition. Features and details that are unique to the early 55 Thunderbirds include; Ford crest and crossed flag emblems, Flat 2-spoke steering wheel with clear plastic spokes and domed hub - the steering wheel is so neat, if youve never seen one please take a look at the photos. No front fender vents, No sun visors on production units, Chrome "doughnut" exhaust ring (early production cars only), Wedge-shaped heater knobs. No vent windows.
Airman Wallace Kirkman, stationed at Lowery Air Force Base, purchased his brand-new sports car, this fine Thunderbird, from Skyland Motors. The original car invoice date was November 9, 1954. On December 13, 1954, Kirkman was transferred to Nellis Air Force Base in Las Vegas until his discharge in 1961. Arizona Motor Vehicle Department records indicate the car has been registered from 1962 through the present in Arizona.
