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 gorgeous California Bird is better then it appears. Has major improvements. If you ever tried getting in or out of a 2 seater bird, you know its not easy. This one has been fitted with an original looking steering wheel with one big difference- its smaller and on a tilt column! It makes getting in and out no problem. They were able to make the wheel smaller because this one was fitted with a modern rack & pinion power steering that is effortless. It also has been upgraded with modern power disc brakes, upgraded cooling, radial tires and more. This is a clean California car loaded with features. I just drove it and loved it. The car ran, and felt so smooth. It was comfortable and easy. I could drive it all day! EXTERIOR: Sold new in Los Angeles, I purchased this from a collector in North Carolina that owned it 12 years. It has a solid, clean body. It is an older restoration that shows great. Very classy factory color. The paint is polished and glossy. There are some crows feet crackling in places you would have to look for under garage lights. Believe me the car is sharp looking, especially in the sunlight. All the chrome and trim is bright and shiny. Has color matched rims with original style hubcaps and a set of radial whitewalls. The door jambs have been painted and detailed, weather strips and sill plates are replaced. It has an aftermarket convertible top with a rich dark blue German cloth. It compliments the color surprisingly well. It also has a restored porthole hardtop painted to match the body. The chrome, rubber and headliner were replaced. INTERIOR: The red interior really pops and it looks practically new. The upholstery looks brand new and it has new cushion. Im sitting in it right now and it feels firm like a new car. The door panels and carpet have been replaced. Has new red reproduction floormats, new red seatbelts with chrome buckles. The dash area is is excellent shape. Upgraded with a chrome Thunderbird retro stereo. Like mentioned earlier the biggest improvement is the smaller wheel on a tilt column. Our 62 salesman just hopped in with ease! It also has factory power windows and seat. The owners manual is in the glovebox. ENGINE COMPARTMENT: The motor compartment is really sharp looking. It has the engine dress up kit which includes new chrome air cleaner, polished aluminum valve covers and chrome oil filler cap. The components all look proper and clean. Detailed with original decals, Ford hose and clamps. There are some really worthwhile improvements in here. The carb was upgraded to a Holley 4 barrel, radiator upgraded to aluminum, brake master cylinder upgraded to a dual reservoir and the power steering is greatly improved. There is a battery shut off. TRUNK COMPARTMENT: Clean metal painted body color. Has complete gray plaid liner kit. Includes whitewall spare and the jack. There is also a rack with wheels to store the hardtop on. UNDERSIDE: California car and it is solid. All the metal looks original and clean. I couldnt find any patches or repairs. Upfront has greatly improved with rack & pinion steering and disc brakes. Bottom of motor and Fordomatic trans are clean. Exhaust looks good, shocks look new. This car is loaded and is documented with original invoice. Also has sales brochure. Great honest car that is an ideal driver because of its upgrades.
