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 1956 Chevrolet Bel Air 4-door is a very appealing car that retains all of its 1950s soul. Yes, I know it has four doors, but look closely and youll find an extremely attractive cruiser with room for the whole family and a vintage look that will turn heads everywhere it goes. Any 1956 Chevy is a great-looking car, and this Bel Air 4-door sedan wears the same sparkling trim as its 2-door siblings and wears it well. With twice as many doors, there are twice as many gaps to fit, twice as many doors to align, and two extra panels to sand and straighten, but the guys tasked with this job did it well. This car looks quite attractive in the flesh, with glittering turquoise and white paint that shows off the vintage sheetmetal to great advantage. Theres some use and age on the paint, but a professional buff might bring it up a notch. And the 4-door carries its own cool details, including the way the rear doors invisibly blend with the quarter panel, giving it the look of a sporty 2-door, as well as the decorative stainless trim at the base of the rear windows. This car also offers a lot of chrome and stainless trim that is probably original and a little faded, plus correct taillights that always look like some kind of trick aftermarket pieces. No matter how many doors it has, this is a good-looking car. A four-door like this really shines when its time to hit the road with some friends, with plenty of room for everyone. Turqouise vinyl upholstery helps to uphold the vintage look, and wide benches fore and aft are all-day comfortable. The carpets are new, the doors and kick panels have been reupholstered, and someone has added seat belts along the way. The gauges are original with the lens showing some age and they are joined by a trio of aftermarket gauges hanging under the dash. The original AM radio is still in the dash and it powers up, but that might be where wed start the upgrades in preparation for a road trip. Theres a big trunk, and while its unfinished, you can see that this car is not a rust bucket. The great thing about the small block Chevy is that it remains a usable engine in your vintage car, just the way it was built. This is a 265 cubic inch version topped by an Edlebrock 4-barrel carburetor and performance is still quite entertaining. It still looks quite original and theres a good chance thats original Chevy Orange paint still clinging to the block. Several upgrades make it far more usable and reliable, including a big aluminum radiator, an alternator, and a modern power brake system with dual master cylinder, new lines, and fresh wheel cylinders. Theres still a 2-speed PowerGlide automatic transmission behind it, and it shifts crisply while highway gears make it a comfortable cruiser under any circumstances. The undercarriage isnt detailed but its solid and original, and as I mentioned, those 20-inch IROC replica wheels give it a resto-mod look but this car could go back to stock quite easily if thats your thing. This 56 Chevy Bel Air is a very affordable way to own an icon and with a little elbow grease, it could be something truly remarkable. Call now!
