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

Even though its a modern build, this 1961 Chevrolet Impala Bubble Top oozes early sixties good vibrations. It doesnt get any better than a 409 under the hood, and this one looks exceptional with period-correct Offenhauser finned aluminum valve covers. An open-element air cleaner assures good airflow, and a set of tube headers and dual exhaust contribute to looks, sound, and performance. It just follows naturally that theres a four-speed manual gearbox behind it. The colors are perfect, with a turquoise and white color scheme inside and out. A clean North Carolina car, the top is the desirable Bubble Top design. Dyno Don Nicholson started the 409 legend in a Bubble Top Impala at the 1961 NHRA Winternationals. Although Chevrolet featured the Bubble Top other years, many feel the 61 is the best example. The hot rod vibe is accentuated with a column-mounted Sunpro tach, and the popular triple gauge cluster mounted under the dash. Even the Riddler wheels harken back to the Halibrand mags seen on many drag and salt racers back in the day. The car was in the hands of its previous owner since 1995, which isnt surprising. When a build achieves that elusive perfect feel and representation of a storied era, it becomes a keeper. This 1961 409, 4-speed Impala Bubble Top is just that.
