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.

Savoy Faire is Everywhere

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 Thunderbird Special Landau was introduced in the Spring of 1965, and differed from the regular Landau due to its unique combination of interior and exterior colors, as well as differences in trim. All Special Landau models were equipped with a Special Parchment-colored roof, and a matching interior. Special touches included EmberGlo accents on interior instrument panel, bucket seat backs, and carpeting. Emberglo was used on unique Special Landau deluxe wheel covers, (Ford part number C5SZ 1130-C), which were standard on this model and not available on other models, in place of the traditional black-painted vanes. The roof rear exterior quarter moldings had a nameplate mounted on them with a gold-colored Thunderbird emblem, and "Special Landau" engraved on it. The interior simulated woodgrain trim was of "burled walnut,". EmberGlo was an exclusive color to this model in 1965.

This 65 Thunderbird Landau shows great with PPG Tangerine/Emberglo color that has a a splash of pearl to really make it pop. The interior has been recently refreshed with the correct parchment color. The dash shows original gauges with a touch of age. The engine has been overhauled along with the C6 3 speed allowing you to enjoy the open road.
