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

Wearing an appealing shade over its lengthy form, this 1962 Ford Thunderbird is one very stylish customer - so stylish, in fact, that back in its day the model it represents was prominently featured in John F. Kennedys inaugural parade not long before also being awarded the honor of performing as the pace car for the Indianapolis 500. Long and sleek, this 62 represents the model in its roomy, early 60s splendor. The light blue draped over its exterior is a great match for this classic - its a dead ringer for the Waterfall Blue selection on the Ford color chart the year this T-Bird debuted, so it is very much at home in this setting and has come through the years strong. Its been a little while since the car ventured into the paint booth and yet its head-turning abilities remain unquestioned. This vintage Ford represents this iconic model during an era when it carried quite an array of chrome ornamentation - its intricate grille that houses a pair of fresh Sylvania headlights as it merges with the front bumper just below, the long stretches of trim that run uninterrupted across its fenders, doors and quarter panels - with even more on display just a little lower, and a pair of distinctive circular casings surrounding the taillights, these defining styling cues and the entire collection on board here is pretty solid, with just some polishing needed to bring out its best. A good portion of the blue interior was replaced during its restoration a while back and, owing to relatively light use, its still looking sharp while remaining in factory configuration. This driving environment is as suitably vintage as can be, with a pair of low backed buckets straddling the lockable factory-issue center console and a fresh expanse of carpeting covering the floor. The dash area features a unique original design, with a trio of displays in its instrument cluster, all of which appear fresh and are fully functional, and a supple-looking dash pad free of any cracks running across the top. The factory-style air conditioning system entrusted with cooling this sizable cabin is blowing cold and strong and is well up to the task, while an AM/FM/Cassette deck stands by to add a nostalgic touch to your audio choices. In back, the trunk area is both spacious and well-detailed, with a clean stretch of fabric lining both the floor and the inner wheelhouses and a full size spare standing by under its matching cover. Beneath the hood, the engine compartment remains nice and clean while harboring a 390 cubic inch V8 - almost certainly the original powerplant - thats nicely dressed in a pair of chrome Ford Racing valve covers and a chrome air cleaner. The big block received some nice upgrades to amp up its output without sacrificing drivability - namely a mild street cam and a Holley 750 4-barrel carb - and teams with a 3-speed automatic C6 transmission to make up a very solid drive train. A pair of Flowmaster mufflers add plenty of heft to the exhaust note coming out of the tailpipes, and a new battery was added to increase dependability. Power steering makes this sizable ride easy to navigate, while power brakes provide it with low effort stopping ability. This classic Ford rides on a set of 14 Kelsey Hayes wire wheels wrapped with fresh-looking tires and features an undercarriage that appears to be ready for plenty more fun filled miles. You dont see many T-Birds from this era around any more and the clean appearance and strong running condition of this 1962 Ford Thunderbird make it rarer still. Call today!
