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 Ford Thunderbird Dont pass up the rare opportunity to take home a single owner, California, first-gen Thunderbird classic that looks and feels like a brand new car! This gorgeous, single owner, 1957 Ford Thunderbird is truly unique. It was bought new from a Southern California dealership in 1958 and has remained with the current owner, in California, ever since. It was immaculately maintained, and underwent a complete refurbishment in 2003 to bring the paint and finishes back to their original luster; it looks and drives just like it did when it came off the factory line. The car is flawlessly finished in the original Metallic Gunmetal Grey paint with matching hard top; both matching the original paint code (H). The car is powered by a Thunderbird Special 312 V8 with 4-Barrel Carb, which was rebuilt prior to the refurbishing, and has a Ford-O-Matic transmission, also rebuilt. There are only 48k miles on the rebuilt engine. The show winning restoration attended to every detail and no expense was spared. Work for the restoration was completed at Prestige Thunderbird in Santa Fe Springs, California. Everything on the vehicle is per the original specs including the Borg Warner-designed Ford-O-Matic 3-speed automatic transmission, Master Guide power steering, power brakes, Fairlane Ranchero hubcaps, porthole hard top, white lined tires, duel ring steering wheel, Town and Country radio, and factory tuned instrument panels. All records of the restoration were retained, as are the excellent maintenance records maintained since purchase in 1958. Most recently, an oil change was performed in 2020. The interior is finished in the original black and white (XA) dashboard top, carpets, seats, and door panels, with brushed aluminum dashboard panel, and original steering wheel. The stunning quality of the finishes can be seen in the photos and certainly makes you understand why Ford billed the Thunderbird as a personal luxury car .
