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
Just Toys Classic Cars is proud to present a beautiful piece of 50s history. The year is 1957, Elvis was at the top of the charts with all shook up, life was good, people were getting new cars every time you turned around, and they kept getting nicer, more wings on them, more chrome, and just nicer and nicer cars. Before you is a stunning 1957 Ford Thunderbird Convertible. You do not get any better than this car. This is the car that kept the Corvette alive. Ford was outselling Chevrolet almost 10 to 1 with the T Bird to the Vette and this car was why. This car has been restored in 1995 and has only had 25 miles put on it since that was done. As you will see in the pics, the paint is miles deep, top and bottom. The cadmium plated parts have been redone in cadmium plating and not repainted. This is a stunning car and one that you must have in your collection today. So, now you reach in and pop the hood, and lift it up to find a well appointed engine bay with the stock 312 it was born with. Everything was gone through on this car, and this motor fires right up every time. This powerful motor is mated to the original automatic transmission and out to the stock rear end. This car is so much fun to drive. Unlike most of the early models that didnt even have an option to get power steering and brakes, you could get it on the 1957 and this one has both on it. This car stops on a dime and turns with ease. Again, it just goes to how much fun and easier that this T bird is to drive compared to the first year birds. This one has all the stickers in all the right places under the hood and was meticulously redone. Obviously, you want to hear how this bird runs, so you jump in the driver door give it a couple pumps and hit that key and hear that come to life. Once it fires up, it just purrs, and makes you want to jump in and just find a long stretch of open road to go cruise down. Now, just throw this baby in to drive and get ready to have more thumbs up thrown at you than you may ever have had in your life. This car is an attention grabber everywhere it goes. The red bench seat had been redone as well as the rest of the interior and it is very comfortable. Have your sweetie by your side and cruise the boulevard. We just can not say enough how much fun this car is to drive, how beautiful it looks, and how well it runs. We offer classic car financing for those that would like to take advantage of the option. It allows you to get the car of your dreams with great rates and terms and pay it off when you want to. We look forward to speaking with you soon, and we look forward to making you the newest member of the Just Toys Classic Cars family. 1957 Ford Thunderbird Convertible Hardtop only Frame off restore in 1990 20 miles since restoration Private Collection for 40 years, title but never licensed Rust Free California body and chassis 312 V8 Automatic Power steering Power brakes New Everything Original window sticker
