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

On the outside this looks like a beautiful 1956 Buick Special Riviera hardtop restored to classic status. Inside you realize that it has been given a fully custom luxury A/C interior. And when you twist the key, youll discover that this classy classic has a HEMI beast living within. That makes this the ultimate restomod, and for a brief moment, its all up for grabs. This makes a stunning first impression. It looks like someone spent years restoring this Buick. After all the body has the kind of straightness few even received from the factory, and the two-tone is absolutely stunning. Red and white are as iconic as Coca-Cola, but this modern application used hues borrowed from Chryslers palette (a cool little hint youll love sharing with others.) Theres beautiful chrome on the intricately designed front bumper that artfully incorporates the grille. And the rear one hugs the body as the tailfins give a sharpness to the Buicks graceful curves. Plus, this has terrific trim, all the way down to the full-length sweeping line that dips low on the body and provides a distinct separation for the two-tone. Very few clues are given that this sleek restoration is a full custom build. The frenched headlights, expertly deleted badging, and Cragar SS wheels are subtle hints at a true performance heart. The Rivieras pillarless hardtop means its easy for everyone to get a clear view at the full custom interior. And with less than 8,000 miles on the build, everything feels quite fresh. Just like the exterior, theres a wonderful two-tone inside, but now its a tasteful two shades of tan on the seats and door panels. This has a classic look, but it also doesnt take much to see a ton of the best in modern upgrades. This includes a power seat, power locks, alarm, cruise control, and a retro-style AM/FM digital receiver with Bluetooth. This is a drivers car with upgraded Dakota Digital gauges and a leather-wrapped Lecarra steering wheel. And because you have power windows you can take down all the glass and show off the cool hardtop profile without ever leaving the drivers seat. And with ice-cold air conditioning, nothing is stopping you from doing this all year long. Under the hood is the biggest surprise of them all. After all, who would expect a powerful 5.7-liter fuel-injected HEMI V8 in a classic Buick? And since you know youre going to show off this unique powerplant so much, it has an award-worthy setup. The walls of the engine bay are painted to match the exterior, and so is the cover for this motor. They spent a ton of time on custom fabrication to neatly hide many of the wires and other components. Not only was this V8 rebuilt during restoration, but also they added upgrades like Aeromotive fuel rails, a BBK throttle body, and Pacesetter headers. Youll want to show this custom coupe off everywhere, and so it was built to be a true restomod. That means upgrades like a C4 Corvette front suspension, rack & pinion power steering, Art Morrison four-link rear, air ride suspension, and four-wheel disc brakes. And because this has the five-speed automatic transmission also borrowed from the donor Mopar, you have the right gearing for both performance driving and overdrive comfort. This is an imaginative and amazing custom, and theres even the title docs and build receipts to prove the outstanding work in this custom creation. So if you love a truly unique car, and the attention it brings, call today!
