1956 Chevrolet Other Chevrolet Models
Car for sale by Park Place LTD in Bellevue, Washington 98005
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
The abbreviated bed is a custom creation with widened rear fenders and a narrowed Speedway Engineering rearend thats mounted with a Scotts four-bar with billet rod ends. Up front, there are custom-fabricated horizontal grille bars that are the only bright metal on the entire trucks exterior besides the polished billet wheels. Notice the flush-mounted taillamps and the center-mounted third brake lamp. A custom windshield rounds out the flowing lines (no side glass). With a laser-straight body, DuPonts Ferrari Red paint was expertly applied, with countless hours invested in hand-polishing to achieve the mile-deep finish.
There are plenty of fire-breathing ponies under the hood to back up the attention that this radical truck commands in the form of a Pro-Built Chevy LS1 backed by a Bowlers Performance 700-R4 tranny. A Magnuson supercharger with a performance intake manifold and a Superchips Ignition feed the LS1 a high-performance air/fuel mixture and spine-tingling charge. Rewarder Headers and Flowmaster Mufflers send the spent gasses through polished stainless steel tubes and exhaust ports located in the rear fenders. Construction details include stock frame rails with all custom cross-members that include a bagged SuperSlam IFS, a Speedway Engineering quick-change rearend with bags, and Wilwood cross-ventilated disc brakes with six-piston calipers at the corners. Also at the corners is a unique set of Colorado Custom billet wheels, 18x8-inch fronts and 20x12-inch rears.
The able hands of Jesses Upholstery in Ventura, California, stitched together an eclectic mix. Covering the floor of the cab is luxurious and plush, wool carpeting. The custom seats, handmade door panels, and bed floor are outfitted with supple, tan leather. For a touch of accent to the interior, custom-dyed alligator skin is sewn into the seat centers, the Colorado Custom steering wheel ring, door panel trim, and the rear bed wall. Topping off the interior work is a pair of color-matched Classic gauges and a billet switch panel for the air ride. A highly polished ididit steering column mated to Borgeson steering joints keep it going straight down the road. The custom Arc Audio sound system was well over $20k alone and is beyond unbelievable - its really loud, and very clear.
