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
With a terrific classic look, and all the right investments including a 302 V8 and new suspension components the only way this all-blue 1963 Ford Fairlane 500 will give you the blues is if you miss out on the this deal. This car has classic style with a little bit something extra. This feeling starts with the paint as the factory-correct Glacier Blue has been given an extra pearlescent on top to really let this one radiate in the sunshine. Its going to get this car some extra attention, and this one is worth it. The body panels remain straight, so the white streak running the full-length appears like an unbroken line. And in the rear, the way this trim tapers like a mirror image of the tailfin is a true stylists touch. More of this artful presentation is seen in details, like the seamless chrome bumpers, ornate grille, dual fender ornaments, and taillights that signaled the jet age. Plus, those Cragar SS wheels not only add to the style, but they also hint at some nice performance under the hood. The sea of blue continues inside with a beautiful two-tone that was refreshed later in this cars life. And once again, youll love the detail work as the white piping nicely coordinates with the headliner. Theres plenty of room for family and friends in a classic like this. And it really nails the vintage atmosphere with the right components working, including the AM radio, heat/defrost sliders, and horn ring on the classic steering wheel. But the auxiliary gauge trio upgrade also tells you that youll like whats in the engine bay. Under the hood lives a Ford legend, but a younger one than you might think. After all, the Fairlane 500 callouts on the air topper and overall tidy presentation make this look quite correct. But youre actually looking at a 302 cubic-inch V8 borrowed from a ninth-generation Thunderbird. It has even been nicely upgraded for performance with a Holley four-barrel carburetor, Edelbrock Performer Intake, Pertronix Flamethrower coil, and H-pipe dual exhaust. The V8 runs particularly nice, because it was rebuilt only about five months and 500 miles ago. In fact, there have been recent investments in new suspension components and bushings, too. So it really feels solid out on the road. And with a three-speed automatic transmission and new brakes, this is really a fine cruiser. Heres a nice classic with solid investments all-around. So if you like style and power, dont let this Fairlane slip away. Call today!!!
