1956 Ford Thunderbird
Car for sale by West Coast Corvettes in Anaheim, California 92806
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.

This Ford T Bird received a complete mechanical restoration by a Southern California Thunderbird Speciality shop in 2009. At that time the the cylinder heads, carb and radiator were updated to the 1957 parts. The ignition system was updated and front disc brakes were added.
Cosmetically the front bumper guards were removed, a 1955 rear bumper was installed and the continental tire kit was removed. The result, as you can see, is a less ornate, more stream lined appearance.
All of the systems are in good working order and the car drives very well. It is equipped with an automatic transmission, power steering, power brakes, power windows, working heater and radio. A smaller diameter steering wheel has been installed that looks like the original but is smaller.
This is a hard top only car. The chassis is rust free, the original looking wire wheels are reproductions that have radial tires mounted on them.
