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.

Named for its original 300 hp HEMI V8 engine, Chrysler’s C-300 caused a sensation in showrooms across the nation when it debuted in 1955. The design successfully married lines from both the Imperial and the New Yorker, which had been previous successful models for the Chrysler group. The new model was billed as “America’s Most Powerful Car” and the 300 backed up that claim with numerous checkered flags on NASCAR tracks. Beginning in 1956, the 300 became the 300B and began what was known as the “letter series” that would run for a decade. 1961 marked the introduction of the seventh series 300, the 300G which was the last to showcase designer Virgil Exner’s “Forward Look.” The 300G was the first to feature canted headlamps and the only 300 to match this front end with Exner’s signature fins. Power for the 300G was derived from the 375 horsepower 413 cubic inch V8 with a cross ram intake that propelled the 300G from 0-60 mph in only eight seconds. Only 337 300G convertibles were built for 1961 and of those only 124 are accounted for today.
