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

The Big Three all rolled out compacts in the early 60s, and Dodges Dart was the standard bearer for the Mopar crowd. With a peppy 225 cubic inch Inline-6 that loves to rev, lightweight bodywork, and a top that goes down, this 1965 Dart 270 is affordable fast fun thats also a little out of the ordinary. The neat little Dart got all the same cool styling tricks that its big brothers received and looks like nothing else on the road, then or now. Obviously inspired by the jet age, the look is instantly identifiable as Mopar and its obvious that they didnt skimp on design even though the Dart was built to be affordable. The current shade on this droptop looks very close to Code P Bright Red and they did a pretty good job of matching the original hue when they repainted it a few years ago. Nice bodywork shows rather well with the light color, and the many interesting features that highlight the Dart are shown in crisp detail. Thanks to a modern paint job, the shine is impressive and makes the car look a lot more expensive than it is. Theres also plenty of chrome and brightwork, which helps hide its economy car origins, including the trim that runs down the profiles, the ornate front grille and its surrounding brightwork, and a pair of bumpers that look great. The black convertible top adds some contrast and is also in great condition, and theres nothing quite like cruising in a classic with the top down. As a fairly simple economy car, high-back bucket seats and a column shifter for the automatic transmission are welcome upgrades. Very cool black seat upholstery highlights a functional and attractive interior, and thanks to a fairly comprehensive facelift a few years ago, it remains in very good shape. Simple door panels are highlighted by bright trim that works well with the highly detailed instrument panel which has the look of a high-end clock from the 60s. A big round speedometer anchors the dashboard, with square auxiliary gauges just to the right, all of which sit inside an original bezel that works to brighten the cab. The three-spoke steering wheel may very well be the cars original unit, and its joined on the column by the shifter for the 3-speed automatic transmission and the original AM radio, complete with matching white faced dial, is still in the middle of the dash (although it is no longer working). Despite the compact categorization, theres a big trunk out back which is ideal for cruises and long-distance trips and includes a fitted plaid mat as original. The 225 cubic inch Slant 6 is believed to be the cars original powerplant and makes all the right sounds when you turn the key. Dont let its size fool you, because taking weight out is the same as putting horsepower in, so this Dart is entertaining on the street. Its detailed with bright red engine enamel, an original valve cover, and the original air cleaner up top, replete with correct Super 225 decals. The engines been warmed over a bit but it still runs great and provides a surprising amount of torque, plus an original-style carburetor and intake manifold to help it breathe a little better. A newer chambered muffler gives it a burly tone thats in character with the Darts mission and there are plenty of recent service items on the chassis. Factory steel wheels with correct hubcaps fit the car just right and carry 205/70/14 Goodyear whitewall radials that make it look sporty. Surprisingly fast and very affordable, this entry-level, vintage convertible offers a lot of fun with a rarity thatll get everyone talking. Call today!
