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.

The 2 seater V8 Convertible gave Corvette run for its money back then and outsold the popular Corvette by thousands over 16,000 T-Birds were purchased across the nation but Chevy only sold 700 Corvettes. Ushering a Rivalry over the next couple of years Ford forced Chevy to up its game. Only selling for 3 years before reintroducing itself as a larger 4 seat car the T-Bird left its mark in 55-56-and 57. These fun little cars still hold true as the most valuable of the bunch.
