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
This car includes a 292 cubic inch V-8 with a four barrel Holley carburetor and automatic transmission. There is no soft top but the hard top is removable. The hardtop is from a later model year. The car is equipped with power windows and an aftermarket air conditioner is installed, but it is not presently working.
A complete body off restoration of this vehicle was begun in May, 1994 and was completed in June, 1999. The engine and transmission were rebuilt by a local specialized engine rebuilder. The car’s electrical system was changed to 12 volts during this rebuild. The car was driven to a Wheels and Keels event in the early 2000s and won a trophy as best in its class.
This car is a beautiful, historic, and fun car that needs a new home with tender loving care. The car is at my home in Spring Branch, Houston, Texas and can be test-driven by anyone interested in purchase. Feel free to contact me by email at email@example.com.
