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.

Classic Car Overview

1962 Cadillac Sedan DeVille Here is nostalgia, the only thing missing is Ward & June Cleaver. This was from that era, that illustrious era that spoiled America rotten with cars a city-block long and half a city-block wide. We were Fantasy Island where ones wildest dreams came true...a dollar was worth ALL of its pennies....and Cadillac was a motorcar of distinction. This 1962 Cadillac is totally American such as: baseball, hot dogs, apple pie, and Sedan deVille. This goes back to a time when an automobile was purchased for its looks and performance and not how many miles to the gallon nor 0-60 in a nanosecond. America wasnt into the crotch-rockets of today back then, America was the purveyor of the luxury car...Cadillac was the leader, remember.... The Standard of the World, and this consignment fits the slogan to a T! This car was stored in a garage for 30 years and the consigner brought it back to life. A long list of upgrades, redos and new parts that have been refreshed is available upon request. Exterior Nevada Silver Metallic covers steel which is minding its gaps fairly well considering there are a lot of seams on this large 4 door vehicle. Paint has some scratches and a few dents and dings from the passage of time and use. The lower areas of the car are showing some usage of body filler, rust bubbles, and slightly uneven panels, and some invasive rust around the passenger wheel wells. The front bumper has also been filled and molded to remediate rust that has formed on its corners. This still remains one of my favorite Caddies with its long sleek lines, hint of rear tail fins and the jet age rear bumper, emulating dual thrusters. Fender skirts and plenty of stainless trimmings in window surrounds and body highlighter moldings can also be seen. Standard Cadillac wheel covers of the era are on new (2020) black wall tires. Interior A swing of all 4 doors reveals a mixture of many surface treatments befitting of a car that is the gold standard of success, and this car does not let us down. Stitched silver leather, pattern broadcloth, brushed aluminum panels are peppered with power toggles and levers. Slipping behind the wheel we come to a rest on a front bench which may be as large as the couch in my living room. This is covered with white leather stitched and buttoned and has some accenting silver leather bolsters at the sides and backs. Some wear in the form of cracking is showing on the drivers seat particularly on the bolsters. The original dash which fronts this bench is looking nice and clean and has plenty of knobs and buttons to play with while driving. This dash is also a mixture of metal, aluminum, and molded plastic chromed bezels and remains in nice condition. On the top of the dash is a high beam sentinel for auto dimming, because pressing that button at your feet is so pedestrian! Cruise control and A/C are also added options to this well optioned car. In back is another large bench with a center fold down armrest and above is a nice tight headliner. Nice clean gray carping is installed and is flooding the floors in thick pile style. A shout to the trunk which is all original and unrestored but looking in fair condition with the spare and lots of room. Drivetrain A lift of the hood and we see an unrestored engine bay with some patina and slight corrosion on some bolt ons. We note a 390ci V8 topped with a 4-barrel carb atop. On the back is a 4-speed Hydramatic transmission, and way back is the 3.21 rear axle which was a must and standard on cars with A/C. Undercarriage A new fuel tank, sending unit and all hoses have been attended to and these all are mounted to an undercarriage of heavily surface rusted steel. The X frame and floor pans are structurally sound with just slight wear off of the undercoating on the floorboards. Independent coil springs for the front and a 4 link with coil springs for the back suspension provide the cushy ride for this land yacht. Power drums are seen on all 4 corners. Drive-Ability She fired up with a large puff of blue smoke, so I suspect there is some oil being burnt within the engine. There is also a miss, and the valve train was noisier than normal. It did provide a smooth ride and I also noticed the wipers and main window switches on the drivers door do not work. Windows do roll up and down at their respective doors though. A wonderfully designed piece of early 60s success in this car which definitely has the look . Shes a bit rough on the engine end but as with any classic will need some attention to get it back to snuff. Meanwhile the basics are all there and you are surrounded by luxury and conveniences. you dont even have to dim the high beams with your foot!
