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

Born and raised in California. Sold new 6-9-65 in Redding, not transported west until 2017. It is exceptionally clean, actually better then the pictures make it look. The salesmen and even the detailers were commenting on how clean the car really is. The reason we bought this car was because of the condition. EXTERIOR: The car presents itself really, really well. Glass finish paint, all the chrome sparkles and the glass is crystal clear. Im walking around inspecting it right now, the body is in excellent shape. I dont see any signs of rust, theres no bubbling. Bottom of the doors are spotlessly clean. All the gaps are tight, even the windows fit real snug. It has had 1 exterior repaint and it is a better job then the factory did. It has a glass finish. The chrome and trim is actually amazing. It practically looks new. It sparkles in places that should be dull, dirty or pitted by now. Upfront all of the chrome including the grill, moldings, headlight bezels and bumper look new. The chrome grill over the cornering lights look new. The stainless trim down the sides and around all the glass is straight and polished like chrome. Even the chrome grill on the cowl is not pitted and actually sparkles. In back its just as good. The bumper, tail lights and trim practically looks brand new. The glass is crystal clear. The door jambs have the original paint and the original weather strips. It has 4 original T-3 headlights. Wheels are custom but really ad some classy eye appeal. They do have Cadillac center caps. INTERIOR: Wow, Im sitting inside the car and its pretty amazing. It is crisp and clean. Whoever owned this car took meticulous care of it. The entire dash area is fabulous. Dash pad is not faded or cracked, all the knobs and bezels still sparkle. Gauges are mint. Headliner and visors look new. The seat cushions and upholstery are mint. It still has its original carpet and even the floor mats. The only issue is the plastic armrests have cracked. Otherwise it is mint inside this car. It has the power seats, antenna and windows. I think the tilt-telescopic wheel is a rare, cool feature. The original pouch with owners manuals and warranty card with original owners info and the selling dealers info is in the glovebox. ENGINE COMPARTMENT: I bet the owner of this car actually cleaned under the hood on a regular basis. Someone has done a very careful job of cleaning and painting the engine the correct Cadillac blue. The inner fenders, core support have the original semi gloss black paint. The hinges are in their original cadium finish. Everything on the firewall is excellent- the wires, vacuum hoses, a/c box is still raw fiberglass, not painted over. Recent service included new alternater, fuel pump, vacuum advance, set timing, replace water pump and antifreeze, front crankshaft seal, set choke etc. Cap and wires look new. Air conditioning system is all intact. TRUNK COMPARTMENT: Well, to say the trunk is huge is an understatement. It has its original speckled colored cloth liner with the cardboard side panels still in place. It is missing the spare but does have the complete jack assembly. The bottom side of the trunk lid and the jamb is very nice. It still has the original rubber and it is cracking. UNDERSIDE: Very clean original condition. No rust, all original metal is still rock solid. Recent service included shocks, repair trans cooler leak, steering box seal kit, input seal, adjust brakes, tighten exhaust hangers. It has the original #s matching Hydramatic trans. I will admit whoever owned this car took better care of it then I would have. With 108,000 miles, it could pass for 30,000 miles! If you like a really clean original survivor, look no further. Its a pleasure to drive too. Feels smooth and new!
