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

This 1965 Shelby Cobra from Backdraft Racing is everything you want. After all, the exterior combines shining paint with a race-ready attitude. And beneath the surface lies a fully independent suspension, four-wheel disc brakes, beefy five-speed gearbox, and Roush performance-built 550hp V8. The deep Indigo Blue with gray painted stripes is an instant attention-grabber. It has a hint of metallic element and a deep luster that makes it a hit every time its parked where the sunshine can find these sleek curves. The color and gloss work particularly well complementing the bright elements like the trim around the lights, hood rivets, flip-up gas cap, roll hoop, and the imposing side pipes. Those jack bumpers and Halibrand-style knock-off wheels look like theyre ready for competition. And this race-ready style is only heightened by the sponsor decals and race number cleanly applied to the fenders. A gray interior is a rare sight on a Cobra, and it nicely complements the exterior stripes. And because theres less than 5,300 miles on the car, there was barely any time to even put a crease in the leather bucket seats. A good Cobra like this gets the details right for driving, like good bolstering in the seats, racing harnesses, a grippy sports steering wheel, and a gearstick right where you want to put your right hand. Plus, the dash is dominated by your gauges. Theyre all easy to see, including the large VDO speedo prominently in the center. Sure, the engine bay has that ideal shiny appearance that will certainly attract crowds... but this is a Cobra, and its primary mission is to be the fastest sports car around. Thats why beneath the flash is the substance of a stout Roush 427R-600 V8. It has right performance pieces, including a Holley four-barrel carburetor, Edelbrock Performer intake, MSD ignition, and headers to feed the growling side pipes. The full package is rated at 550 horsepower, and we have the dyno sheet to prove it! All this power is only at its best when you have the right components to control it. Thats why you get a Tremec TKO600 five-speed manual. On the road or racetrack, youll instantly feel the confidence the stout frame and fully independent sports suspension gives you. Plus, theres superior control with the modern grip of the Goodyear Eagle F1 tires that are supported by four-wheel disc brakes. Not only does the sale come with the dyno sheet, but also the manual and buildsheet from Backdraft. This is the fresh and mean Cobra with a cool attitude, so dont miss your chance at a pure sports car experience. Call today!!!
