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
1961 Cadillac Series 62 What is the Cadillac mystique? - over two tons of steel, chrome and fancy trim crafted into a sleek, stylized version of an airplane that cannot fly, but can do practically everything else. GM states... We appeal to people who want the best, Weve noticed that when we have fuel problems or the economy is not doing well, people become very quality conscious - not price conscious. Cadillacs were restyled and re-engineered for 1961. The new grille slanted back towards both the bumper and the hood lip along the horizontal plane and sat between quad headlamps. New forward slanting front roof pillars with non-wraparound windshield glass was seen. The revised backlight (rear window) treatment had crisp, angular lines with thin pillars on some models and heavier, semi-blind-quarter roof posts on others. Exterior Best described as a cruiser that is most comfortable in the low and slow mode, the exterior is covered in matte black. Chrome accents abound and show pitting and rusting in areas of the bumpers, and brite work. Toned down but ostentatious rear fins, announces to everyone you have arrived, and you are large and in charge! With its large chromed dish wheel covers, rear fender skirts, curved greenhouse glass, and the iconic fins, this car gives off a look that is reminiscent of the Bat Mobile. Interior Shabby chic best describes this unrestored interior, with original leather seats showing tears, staining and soiling, door panels that are smudged and loaded with power actuators, and ashtrays somewhat dulled, and a nonexistent headliner, the interior is a bit rough. The dash is original and unrestored. Drivetrain A 390ci V8 graces the original patina engine bay and is topped with a single 4-barrel recently rebuilt carburetor. A TH400 automatic 3-speed automatic transmission is strapped to the back of this 390. A new generator, starter, power steering pump, belts, and master cylinder are some recent upgrades made to this engine. Undercarriage Plenty of heavy surface rust, and some invasive rust on a section of the frame render this car in need of some structural repairs. New front and rear shocks and springs, new brake shoes and drums all around, and new front strut bars, as well as a recent front end alignment will assure those new tires will last a good long time. A menacing but interesting cruiser in its long, finned and uber chromed form in reasonably good exterior shape, and in need of a redux interior, mechanically sound with recent upgrades, and some rust on the frame condition. Grab this car and put some finishing touches on her and you will be one of the coolest Caddy drivers around!
