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

1963 Ford Fairlane 500 Sleepers are some of our favorite cars here at Classic Auto Mall. Not only because theyre fast and soft-spoken, but also because they represent the ingenuity of putting big horsepower in anonymous and sometimes unpopular packages. Its a side of our personality that, given the pages of polished cars on our website, you probably wouldnt expect to see. And I know what youre thinking...you doubt my sincerity about introducing a genuine, road-ready sleeper. But alas, after you take just one look at this original Ford Fairlane, youll quell your convictions. Not the most powerful optioned Fairlane in the offerings of 1963, but certainly a respectable grocery getter, that remains all original condition save for the drivers fender which was hit at a bank parking lot and replaced, in its presentation. A difficult at best car to find in this condition, and is super clean, and has unbelievably low original 45,138 miles From its bat-mobile-esque small tail fins, to its turbine like rear stoplights, lets usher in the very beginnings of the jet age, in style... put some records on while I pour . Exterior A consigner stated all original Champagne paint, we note some dull spotting on the front which you need to look hard to see those spots. It remains amazing original and good condition straight steel, all minding their gaps, and staying in line. Opening and closing the doors, this car literally has the Mercedes thud, with no after closing vibrating jiggle sounds, just a cold hard thud...which speaks to fit and finish on this 56 year old car. The only sign of rust is interestingly on that replaced drivers fender, right at the back of the wheel well. This however is surface rust only and can easily be remediated. Noted is a nicely placed black trim spear going from fore to aft at the belt line. Bordered by polished stainless, it attracts attention at just the right places for ones eye to follow the early 1960s line of this car. Plenty of other chromed trim work around all windows, and drip moldings as well as highlighting the B pillar. Pristine shiny black covers the hardtop. The grille sports a pattern that reminds us of a chromed tweed and is flanked by dual headlights and some front fender toppings looking like mini fins. Standard Ford turbine style wheel covers are wrapped by thin whites, with good tread showing on all. Interior Muted gold is the color scheme inside with x patterned tuck and roll cloth inserts, surrounded by darker muted gold shiny bolsters, and some white piping thrown in for some seat bling, midcentury modern style. Also, the inserts as well as door panels make use of some metal thread for just a bit of highlighting. Both seats are benches, the front split, and they stretch from door panel to door panel. Turning our attention to the original dash we see a trio of deep set circular gauges in an aluminum field. Above is a faux leather patterned padded dash with no cracks or fading, and below is a painted metal strip of the muted gold. Nary a mark on this dash not even key scratches around the ignition. An all original and working radio, and temp controls are seen in the center, and a glove box in front of the passenger. This is fronted by a pristine steering wheel, of course original! Carpet is very nice throughout, and there is an original dealer available and installed full length rubber floor mat. A nice tight headliner in white is above all this early 60s splendor. A shout to the trunk which has its original square tweed liner and no sign of rust anywhere. Drivetrain A lift of the hood, and we are greeted with a 221ci V8 nicely patinaed and original, complete with yellow valve covers and air cleaner. A single 2-barrel carburetor is atop and this car utilizes a 2-speed Ford-O-Matic transmission to put power back to a Ford 8-inch 3.25 conventional rear. Undercarriage We see minimal surface rust, and structurally sound frame and floorpans as well as rockers below. Independent coil spring front suspension, leaf spring rear suspension, and drum brakes all around are noted while underneath. Drive-Ability Sitting inside it feels like you are in nearly a new car, this car fired right up, and ran like a dream. No creaks or squeaks, it handled well with just a little roll on sharper turns. Brakes are strong, and transmission shifted smoothly. A nice cruiser where I noted the only thing not working was the gas gauge. A real original charm with a documented 45,138 miles, all original paint, engine, and interior, all clean, and all ready to turn the key and go. Ill see you at the car show!
