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.

1962 BLACK FORD THUNDERBIRD M-CODE LANDAU HARDTOPStunning and rare frame-off restored M-Code T-Bird.Black w/Black interior 390/340hp M-Code, 3-spd. automatic transmission.As with the 63 T-Bird featured elsewhere on our site, this stunning 62 is also an M-Code Landau Hardtop But this 62 is even rarer, as its one of approximately 5 built! Like the M-Code, the Landau Pkg. was a new option in 62. The vinyl roof was available only with the Landau. But the big news was the M-Code 390ci big block engine sitting under the hood! The beast was conservatively rated at 340hp for insurance reasons. But in reality, it was closer to 400hp. It features 10.5:1 compression, 3 Holley 2bbl carbs sitting atop an aluminum intake manifold, 406 heads with higher rate valve springs, a specially ground camshaft the was unique to this engine and a high pressure oil pump.This absolutely stunning example was sold new in CA. and has undergone a 5 phase restoration to factory specs that included mechanical, electrical, interior, drivetrain and body. Over $200k was spent on this amazing restoration. During the fifth phase of restoration, the body was stripped, sanded and disassembled. This process enabled the location, identity and correction of any flaws in the body. Fortunately, the body was found to be very straight with only minor rust found on the trunk floor. It was also discovered that the passenger side rear quarter panel had been replaced. The 3 original V.I.Ns were located on the frame and several period correct date stamps were located on various body panels. have been preserved. All three V.I.N.s have been preserved. All chrome plating and stainless steel polishing was performed by Speed and Sport Chrome in Houston, TX. All rubber, seals, and weather stripping came from Steel Rubber Products.
