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.

Savoy Faire is Everywhere

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

This is a really slick 2 top T-bird thats been frame-off restored. Stunning in black with contrasting white tops, two tone interior and the wire hubcaps really make it. EXTERIOR: Factory black, code A. For a 20 year old restoration It has held up remarkably well. Stand next to the car and its better then new, up close you may find minor imperfections. I say it looks better then new because the factory paint was never polished like a mirror, you could read a newspaper in the reflection of this one. The doors never fit this good when new. The body is straight and fits nice. Same thing with the chrome and trim, from a few feet away it sparkles like new. Up close you may find minor imperfections. The correct (expensive) wire basket hubcaps really class the car up. Radial tires give It a better ride. Windshield is crystal clear. In back the exhaust is routed out through the bumper like It is supposed to. It has both tops- very desirable. The convertible is a genuine frame, not a cheap reproduction. Has a contrasting white top. The hardtop is also done in white. Has a smooth finish paint, the stainless trim is in excellent shape. Also the white headliner has been replaced. INTERIOR: its in really nice shape inside to the seat has been requested an upholstered the correct carpets been installed the whole dash areas in really nice shape the turned metal trim is really nice all the Chrome knobs in bezels Sparkle steering wheels excellent the horn ring is not broken off like most of them are door panels are very nice. MOTOR COMPARTMENT: The engine compartment is really nice looking and proper. It has the engine optionaldress up kit which includes the aluminum finned valve covers, chrome air cleaner and oil filler cap. The engine bay is smooth, clean metal thats been painted black. The motor has been repainted. Everything else is proper and clean. Has correct style hose clamps. Also has power brake booster and ram air! That hood scoop is functional feeding fresh air right into the 4 barrel carb. TRUNK COMPARTMENT: Very neat and orderly. Its painted black, has a rubber mat, cardboard side panels, jack and a spare. UNDERSIDE: I havnt really talked about how solid this car is. Take a look at the pictures under this car, the metal is smooth and dry. Very solid car. The floors and frame are not patched, crunchy or flaky. Nice smooth metal with a satin black finish. No thick undercoat hiding anything. Everything looks proper. Suspension bushings, brake lines, shocks, exhaust were replaced. Motor and transmission are clean looking. The 1955 T-bird was Fords response to the Corvette. It featured a ram air V-8, windows and luxury accessories were available. The Corvette was pretty primitive with a 6 cylinder motor, snap in windows and no available accessories. This T-bird is a great example. Very solid core with a great looking restoration!
