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
1965 Plymouth Belvedere II Coupe In 1965, the muscle car wars were raging and engine power was everything. In January of that year, the Beach Boys recorded Shut Down a song about a drag race between a 1962 Super Stock 413 Dodge Max Wedge and a 1963 fuel-injected Corvette Stingray, and that pretty much summed up the action on American streets and strips for the era. Drag racing was the hot competition, and every American automaker wanted to win NHRA titles in the factory stock classes. No expense was too high to put muscle on the strip. That commitment led to some legendary low-production factory-built racing cars. Starting out life as a mild mannered 318ci V8, this Belvedere has had a massive engine upgrade, and a Medium Blue Metallic respray, along with some other goodies thrown in for good measure, and pure tire burning excitement. Star of magazine articles, and numerous car shows, and very collectible at this point in time. Exterior Medium Blue Metallic now covers nicely straightened steel panels all around. There is slight misalignment on the trim spear on the drivers side between the front quarter and drivers door. Chrome and trim work is all good with few faults, even when studying it closely. This chrome and black painted spear runs the gamut on the sides and presents itself at the belt line, and does a beautiful job of breaking up the blue steel slabs. A pristine front grille is flanked by single headlights, and silver painted front bumper. Seen on the hood is a large scoop which will funnel plenty of air into the big mill underneath. A shout out to the B pillar with its V shaped design that adds to the very nice line this car produces. 15-inch Torque Thrust 5-spoke wheels in matte battleship gray are on all 4 corners. The fronts are wrapped with 225/75 R15s and the rear sports 345/45R15 wide tires. Interior Nearly perfect Super Stock style front buckets and matching rear bench are draped in black vinyl. The buckets feature light weight brackets, and RCI wide harnesses. An original dash with a metal front and padded dash top houses all the correct gauges. An original steering wheel is in front of this dash and has a shift light mounted to the column. Other aftermarket additions include a dash mounted tachometer, and an aftermarket oil gauge which hangs below the dash. Excellently preserved black carpet floods the floors, and a tight headliner is above. Drivetrain Truly the money shot on this car, full specs are available, but in a nutshell a 426ci Hemi stroked to a consigner stated 471ci which was built by Mancini Racing out of Michigan. It has aftermarket Mopar Performance Aluminum Hemi heads, and a Mopar Performance cross ram intake manifold and 2 4-barrel Holley 770 CFM carbs on top. A 727 Torqueflite 3-speed automatic transmission is on back and has a 4500 stall converter. An 8-3/4-inch rear that has been narrowed 6 inches to accommodate the rear tires. TTI ceramic coated headers are seen and a 3-inch Flowmaster exhaust is now on. Undercarriage Frame, rockers, body hangers, and floor pans all are looking straight and secure with no rust. New steering components are now installed, and correct factory torsion bar front suspension is on. The rear suspension features Super Stock rear leaf springs. Drive-Ability A well-built engine that fires right up, and off we go! Plenty of brute power in this car offering up some neck snapping acceleration, and also a good cruiser. Steering was nice and tight, and brakes stopped us quickly. A beautifully performed restoration/upgrade to a cross ram racing setup with some massive power under the large scooped hood in the form of a beefed up Hemi, really nice interior looking just like the original would have looked, presenting in black, and some good brakes which are certainly important when youve got all that power up front. Smoke em if you got em!
