1957 Pontiac Chieftain
Car for sale by Specialty Sales Classics in Fairfield, California 94533
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.

This 1957 Pontiac Chieftain has been painstakingly restored back to museum quality with every single nut and bolt removed and replaced with new hardware. The body was also taken down to bare metal and then primed, sealed, and sprayed with two stage Black Cherry Pearl paint. Then the stainless trim was straightened and polished, while all the chrome was triple plated. The factory 347 engine was also rebuilt and balanced as was virtually every component throughout this desirable classic.
Additionally, a few modifications were performed during the restoration. The fuel tank filler neck was rerouted into the trunk. Power Front disc brakes were installed along with Vintage A/C, a 100 amp alternator, a premium sound system in the truck and gorgeous Cadillac chrome wire wheels. The results are simply spectacular as well; this Chieftain looks feels and drives like a brand new classic.
