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 Ford Thunderbird was born with a terrific color combo, and they invested nicely in a restoration to make sure it continues this elegance today. Plus, with everything from a loaded interior to proper V8 power, this is the iconic classic done exactly how you want it. The appeal of this one is as clear as black and white, literally. It starts with the quality application of the factory-correct Colonial White paint. This car was given a thorough restoration about a dozen years ago, and it has been treated with high respect ever since. So you can still easily recognize the quality that went into this porcelain-like white. And good body panels mean the clearcoat shine loves to highlight all the T-birds styling elements, like the crisp line that starts at the faux side vents and runs along the profile all the way to the hint of tailfin. These Thunderbirds knew how to mix elegance and performance. Thats why you have the dual bullets in the bumpers and a hood scoop that go so well with the fender skirts and a continental kit. And this example has even more added distinction. The upgraded Intro 15-inch wheels have white inserts to coordinate with the cars color. And while there is a removable hardtop that comes with sale, the new black folding roof really looks great against the paint to give this a crisp look of a tuxedo. If you like the color combo of the roof and the exterior paint, then youre going to love the interior. Thats because this has the factory-correct black and white two-tone inside. And just like the exterior, they invested in quality to keep it looking its best. Youll love all the vintage touches, like the artful steering wheel and the AM radio in the dash. And as a true luxury cruiser, you also have some rare features for the 50s like power windows and a power seat. Plus, the T-bird was meant for driving. Thats why you have a cool machine-turned dash panel, a large speedo flanked by a working tach and clock, and there are even auxiliary readouts cleanly installed under the dash. Even the engine bay follows the cars color theme. The white inner fenders and firewall do a great job of showcasing the crisp black components. Theres also a nice splash of extra color everywhere from the red engine block to the Thunderbird valve covers. This 312 cubic-inch V8 inhales deeply with a four-barrel carburetor, so it makes the right power for you to truly enjoy the personal cruiser experience. And the dual exhaust makes that ideal sweet tune. Add in a three-speed automatic transmission, power steering, and power brakes w/discs up front, and this T-bird knows how to keep you happy for many miles to come. The sale comes complete with the owners manual, shop manual, and maintenance records. It all goes to prove that the appeal of this restored T-bird is as clear as black and white. Call today!!!
