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
1956 Chevrolet Bel Air $21,500
When you imagine period-correct motoring, this is what the '50s will look like. This 1956 Chevrolet Bel Air sedan has a great two-tone appearance, a ton of originality, and a period-correct V8. So when something this distinct is also so affordable, then it's a deal worth digging into deeper.
The '56 Chevy has remained the enduring motoring icon because of how well it represented what we wanted in the '50s daring colors, plenty of chrome, and rocket-inspired designs and this one does it best. First of all is the two-tone. The Crocus Yellow and Onyx Black are a period-correct combo that really know how to attract attention. And the way the Bel Air line has that harpoon of color running the full profile is an exclusive touch for this year that no factory would ever dare try again. And speaking of exclusive to '56, the grille is a great piece. Larger than '55 and sleeker than '57, you can easily recognize this model from a long way away. Plus, with the trim, bumpers, wheel covers, and all the emblems complete, this is total package that is worth its weight in exclusive brightwork. And the details like the hood ornament and taillights are a great finishing touch to remind us that this Chevy was at the dawn of the jet age.
Inside is an interior that coordinates with the exterior in its two-tone yellow and black. This is believed to be mostly original, which makes it the kind of car people love to see at survivor events. Plus, just like the exterior, its level of completeness is amazing. So you get plenty of bright trim, door panels that mimic the exterior style line, and an artful steering wheel. The Corvette-inspired dual cowl dash still even has the original AM radio on display.
Part of what makes these cars a legend is that the Tri-Fives were the ones to introduce the Chevy small block V8. So you'll be happy to lift the hood and see a 265 cubic-inch V8 boldly radiating from within the dark engine bay. More than just look correct with the cursive valve covers and huge factory oil bath air cleaner on top, you also get the pride of telling people the block is a period-correct powerplant. Besides looking cool, there has been all the right recent investments. This includes a radiator service, fresh spark plugs, repaired carburetor, new fuel pump, new fuel tank, new sending unit, brake cylinders, and much more (call for all the details.) Even the Powerglide automatic transmission was recently rebuilt. The result is a classic that fires up easily, idles smoothly, and cruises confidently exactly what you want in a '56 Chevy.
Complete with vintage California plates, this is the distinct Bel Air
that's priced to move.
