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

Style never goes out of fashion, which might explain why the 1955-56-57 Chevrolets remain as popular today as they were when they were new, perhaps more so. Next to the convertibles, the car to own is a Bel Air 2-door, and this lovely 1956 Chevrolet Bel Air 2-door sedan is the ideal combination of ready-to-rock mechanicals and a gorgeous high-gloss paint job. Starting with a straight car makes it easy to create a stunner like this. Despite being finished a few years ago, the paint is still quite nice and shows off the factory Bel Air trim to great effect. The lights in our studio dont really do it justice, because the depth of the bright electric blue paint is impressive, even after all these years. Sure, you can look around and find a few touch-ups here and there, but this car still attracts a lot of attention wherever it goes. And thanks to the striking Bel Air trim which streaks along the sides, it has a very crisp, precise look. Most of those shiny pieces have been restored to give this stunner some sparkling jewelry, and it proves once again that the best designs just dont need improvement. Just about the only non-factory part is the billet grille, but it blends in so well that you dont really notice and the rest is so right that it works from any angle. The two-tone interior is completely custom, but the look is certainly right in the 1956 bodywork. To be honest, the front seat looks almost completely unused, which tells you a lot about the quality of the work and the care it has received since it was finished. Custom embroidery on the seat backs highlights the split bench setup, which, of course, is power-actuated with a center armrest. Matching door panels are made of the same materials with dramatic sculpting that still manages to capture the 1950s yet puts a modern spin on it. The dashboard is still fairly stock, with modern Auto Meter gauges, a custom AM/FM/CD/iPod stereo system, and the traditional bright trim that spans the width of the entire dash. Theres also a tilt column with a billet steering wheel, and the column-mounted shifter manages a 700R4 4-speed automatic overdrive transmission, all upgrades that make it a fabulous cruiser. The gorgeous trunk features a custom bulkhead with twin subwoofers, plus full carpets and a spare tire with cover. Under the hood youll find a stout 350 cubic inch V8 with lots of chrome and plenty of horsepower. Everything inside is obviously new, and a set of double hump heads, an Edelbrock intake manifold and 4-barrel carburetor, and full MSD ignition system help build reliable horsepower. Its very neat and clean, with well-designed accessory access, a power dual master cylinder with front disc brakes, and a big radiator out front. The aforementioned 700R4 transmission feeds a 10-bolt rear end, meaning that it can just loaf along at highway speeds. The front suspension is a custom tubular setup with a big sway bar, so handling is a bit sharper than stock. A Flowmaster dual exhaust system gives the small block a performance sound that fits its personality and the stance is exactly right. It sits on a set of old school Torque Thrust wheels with staggered 245/45/17 front and 275/40/17 rear performance radials. With a very cool look, a gorgeous interior and that enhanced V8 under the hood, this Bel Air is a wonderful machine to show and drive. Please come in and have a look at this one in person, because the photos just dont do it justice. Just be prepared: as soon as you see it, youll fall in love. Call today!
