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

1957 Chevrolet Bel Air Station Wagon Imagine a car so popular that a new term came to be, based on that design. That name is Tri-Five, which refers to 1955, 1956, and 1957 Chevrolet automobiles, in particular the Bel Air, 150, 210 Sedans, and the Nomad. With beautiful proportions and new skins each of those successive years, and a thorough peppering of chrome, these cars produced in this time became iconic. From all original to highly modified versions, many Tri-Five clubs have sprung up to showcase individuality, originality, and the beloved Chevrolet concepts of Harley Earl and his team. Benefitting from a nearly total redux, body panels removed, scraped and sanded, then repainted, suspension taken apart and redone with new bushings etc., a 327ci V8 rebuilt, and an interior looking old but new, one cannot go wrong on this beautiful 4-door example of the Bel Air, and its the most sought after year...1957. Exterior All beautiful straight steel panels, with well minded gaps over the exterior of this car. Very nice Canyon Coral, and India Ivory two tone, give this wagon a very retro look. All chrome, brite-work, trim and badging is excellent, having been removed and polished to a sparkling shine. The rear bumper is showing some dimpling and discoloration near the exhaust pipes. Add some new weatherstripping throughout, to pad the moving metal parts from scraping together, and keeping water out of the passenger compartment. 15 Crager SS wheels wrapped by 215/75R15 tires all around, and we have ourselves one really nice car. Interior Totally redone in retro style, the vinyl cloud like pattern, mixed with gray and vertical black ribbed panels, and throw in some stainless, and we have ourselves a set of 4 rocking door panels. Slipping into the seats, we see a similar mix of the same materials, add in seatbelts for safety, and we are dripping with 57 style. A refurbished dash with all correct gauges and then some in the form of a tachometer, and trio of aftermarket gauges hanging from the bottom of the pristine dash. The new aftermarket radio, and the factory clock are seen as well in this snazzy dash. A calm sea of black carpet covers all the floors and is very clean throughout, even in the rear compartment, and a nice tight headliner hangs above all this 50 style. Drivetrain Residing within a completely restored engine compartment, we see a clean well done 327ci V8, sporting an aluminum manifold, a Carter AFB 4-barrel carburetor, supported by an Edelbrock intake. The transomission is a TH350 3-speed automatic. All kept cool by a new aluminum radiator. A Ford 9 rear has been installed. Undercarriage All normal underneath with some surface rust present, however nothing to worry about as it is a 62 year old car, even though it does not look it! The front suspension is all original and has been scraped, cleaned and repainted prior to rebuilding. The rear of the car has rebuilt springs. Aftermarket power front disc brakes, and power steering are noted as well. A true 1957 wagon in 4-door form, from its retro colored paint, to the nifty interior in 3 types of vinyl, rebuilt engine which looks the part too, a driver, and an award winner ready to take down Main Street, turn some heads, then go get the groceries.
