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

This 1955 Oldsmobile 88 is a classic coupe thats been given so much custom work inside and out, and theres even powerful big block upgrade under the hood. So at a price like this, it might seem too good to be true, but the more you read, the more youre going to love this custom Olds. This one takes pride in its skillful custom work to make it as handsome as it is today. From a distance, you can recognize the investment on the two-tone Burgundy and Ivory pearl just by its metallic glow. The two colors give the gentle curves an almost gem-like quality. Plus, you really see the details in the paint thanks to how they expertly deleted almost any trim that was not used to separate the two-tone, including the door handles. Dont worry, the door poppers are on a remote key fob and additional poppers are located underneath the side mirrors! The bumpers were even eliminated and replaced with seamless form-fitting pieces that give this classic Oldsmobile a very contemporary style. The hobnail grille is an eye catcher; there are sleek sort mirrors; and theres an awesome stance on the Cragar SS wheels. It all makes for the kind of car where you know its both custom and powerful all within the first glance. The two-tone treatment continues inside. The carpeting, door panels, upholstery, and headliner are an intertwined burgundy and cream that look quite handsome. And the curvy dash has the kind of gloss some people would love to have on their fenders. Even the trunk was redone for this full custom setup. More than just look nice, this was also built for driver comfort. Thats why you have well-integrated upgrades like a high-back front bucket seats, a cup holder center console, auxiliary readouts, and a later model Oldsmobile steering wheel on a tilt column. Theres even an AM/FM/CD with aux input for the ideal driving music. The 455 cubic-inch V8 was one of the best Olds motors around, and so while it was years away in 1955, this custom build was given the proper upgrade. Not only do you have the mighty V8, but also it looks handsome in the engine bay where they painted the components to coordinate a while back. Theres even some nice added shine with the polished valve cover and air topper. This looks like a driver-quality package, and thats why its ready to hit the boulevard. The V8 inhales deeper with a large Holley four-barrel carburetor, and the Cherry Bombs dual exhaust lets it exhale with a terrific tune. The 200-4r four-speed automatic transmission even gives you handy overdrive. Add in power steering, power brakes, and wide BF Goodrich T/As, and this custom Olds is the kind of car thats fun all weekend long. Compete with maintenance records, this is power and elegance thats ready to hit the road right now. So dont miss out, call today!
