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.

I bought it about two years ago from a one-owner family. The car was ordered by a family friend, an auto shop teacher in Pasadena. Have all documents... It was ordered with great factory options. 352 V8, automatic, PS, PW, PB (Kelsey-Hayes), A/C, power driver seat. Just under 98,000 original miles-HAS NOT ROLLED OVER. Its original Palm Springs Rose paint has faded slightly to a pearly white. Its black and white vinyl seats are original and have been restuffed. Original trunk liner in very good condition. (How often do you see that?!) Original factory fiberboard sandwiched in trunk lid is completely intact! Chrome dress up package on engine-air cleaner and headers. Compression test showed all cylinders good.
Lots of records and receipts for car's whole history. Original bill of sale. Owners manual. Oregon and California license plates. Newer Coker white wall radials. New white headliner. New shocks, new stainless steel exhaust, new water pump, thermostat, heater core. New oil pump and new seals at bell housing and oil pan. New antenna. New plugs, wires, distributor. In 2016, brakes, wheel cylinders, and master cylinder were redone, generator, voltage regulator, fuel lines, pump, sender, seals, etc. Belts, electric ignition, battery and cables, more...
A spare OEM dashpad was purchased back when the car was new and it recently replaced the old dashpad which had cracked. A/C needs recharge. Radio works but needs new wire to speaker.
Bonus included with car: Custom California Car Cover (Noah) and storage duffel. Extra carburetor.
Driven it from Portland to Timberline, Eugene, eastern Washington--goes 85 mph nice and straight down the freeway, no problem. A thoroughly stock and original car with rare factory options and documentation in excellent, drivable condition ready to use and show as is or bring it up to concours! They are only original once—this is the one you want.
