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
1960 Cadillac Coupe DeVille Well now you may think Im foolish For the foolish things I do You may wonder how come I love you When you get on my nerves like you do Well baby you know you bug me There aint no secret bout that Well come on over here and hug me Baby Ill spill the facts Well honey it aint your money Cause baby I got plenty of that I love you for your pink Cadillac. For consignment the ultimate status symbol of the dawn of the 60s in the form of a Cadillac Coupe DeVille. Literally meaning of the town this long and luxurious land yacht complete with massive fins, big steel slab sides, is a real cruiser, and way over what you think is status quo. Exterior An older respray in Pelham Blue metallic covers the massive steel panels that are minding their gaps. In full disclosure, some water staining, possibly from wet contact with the car cover for an extended period of time, show mostly on the flat surfaces (hood, roof, fenders, trunk). One has to look just in the right light to see it, but it is there. Being a survivor car, it retains much of its originality. A shout to the rear of this car with its rocket ship design in the form of dual vertical taillights inserted into the bumper resembling thrusters, and those nifty brake lights inserted into the V shaped fins. Did you know those fins actually make the car go faster? Paint is still shiny, and the chrome is good. The grille is complete with tiny bullets within the egg crate ultra-wide whites peek out from the fender skirts on the rear, and up front lead the way around any corner. Interior With all power options working excepting the original radio, you are in wealthy mans territory in the interior of this car. The spacious benches covered in broadcloth in the centers and surrounded by leather bolsters all electric, all working. The door panels are an exercise in 60s design with various textures including an aluminum strip with concentric circles etched in aluminum, cloth in two tone square, gray leather uppers, and lower carpet banding. Nice shiny handles and knobs here too. The wrap around dash also is an exercise in early 60s design with a cluster of power switches for windows and mirrors housed in the curve, instrument cluster in the center, and a long band of horizontal chromed bands to add accent. Round bezel clock, and A/C vents are located throughout. Gray carpet in good condition covers the floors, and a tight original headliner hangs above. Drivetrain The standard Cadillac 390ci V8 rebuilt 10 years ago sits in an unrestored but very clean engine bay. On top is a Rochester single 4-barrel carburetor, and a 4-speed Hydramatic automatic transmission is on the back of the 390. 3.21 gears which is the standard ratio on Caddys with A/C, which this one has. Undercarriage For a survivor the undercarriage has a nice patina and no surface rust. 4-wheel power drum brakes, and cushy independent coil spring and coil spring suspension make for a cloud like ride. Drive-Ability Behind this wheel you as the driver are large and in charge, in this comfy well-designed interior. A turn of the key and she fires right up and has a smooth idle. Shifting is solid with no lag, and acceleration is smooth. A/C blows cold, and as mentioned the radio does not work, and we found the wipers to be in-op as well. Overall a very smooth ride as with most pieces of Detroit iron this large. All original, mostly working, comfortable clean example of a 3-owner car, 2 of them from the same family (grandfather / grandson). A rebuilt engine at the time of the restoration/respray 10cyears ago, and otherwise all original. Truly driveway jewelry to be sure to turn heads and attract attention in your neighborhood. And the fins do make it go faster!
