Los Angeles, CA
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.

Several original Packard spare parts included. See below for description of this great car. It has been a California-driven car, no rust. Body & Frame are in great condition, no accidents.
· Torsion Bar Suspension: The 4-Wheel Torsion Bar Suspension available only on this model Packard offered distinct advantages over standard coil-spring suspension, illustrated in the following situations. As a front wheel rises on a bump, a mechanical reaction is carried to the rear wheel, distributing the shock and making for a smooth ride. Unlike other vehicles that will pitch up during a fast take-off, and lower forward during a hard-stop, this Packard will maintain a level and even ride, and when cornering, will squat at the opposite direction of the turn for stability.
· Car Load Leveler: To keep the car level when excess baggage is in the trunk or passengers enter the car, an electronic leveler system senses the weight and automatically adjusts the suspension to keep the car within 5/8 of an inch of factory level.
