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

No car guys bucket list is complete without a Shelby Cobra. You could rattle off 50 other cars and youd still get an incomplete without one. Its the most recognizable sports car ever built, and faithful copies can be found at every price point from DIY kits to high-end builds like this awesome blue roadster, which packs a thundering 302 cubic inch V8 mated to a quick-shifting 5-speed. This fantastic-looking snake comes from B&B (now technically McGills after the company dissolved in 2008 and ownership restructured in to a different outfit that still operates today), and its been professionally finished to give it a classic Cobra look. The fiberglass bodywork is fully reinforced in the important areas like the fenders and doors, and has the iconic bits and pieces that make the Cobra a perennial favorite. The pros cared about getting the look just right and laid down the handsome blue paint and the white stripes, which works as a slightly brighter, more modern replication of the original look. A lone chrome roll hoop is classic, as is the quick release fuel cap on the rear fender, plus chrome bumperettes front and rear that look race-ready, along with the scoop in the hood and that trick Talbot-style mirror. Take a look at the pictures again and try to convince yourself that you dont want this car...we dare you. Inside youve got a pair of black bucket seats in an all-business cabin. Aggressive Ford Racing 4-point belts hold you in place while a Shelby-style wood-rimmed steering wheel swiftly takes in all of your commands. Full Faria instrumentation lets you know exactly whats going on in the engine compartment, and a Pioneer AM/FM/CD/Satellite head unit was installed for some open-air tunes. And 60 tall drivers dont have to worry, because the foot boxes were dropped a bit to increase legroom and it really works, because this is one of the more comfortable Cobras weve driven. We like the raw toggle switches, the cowl-mounted mirror, and the forward-canted Hurst shifter topped with a Cobra knob, which manages a Tremec 5-speed manual gearbox that lurks below. No power options or A/C, but if you need those things, youre probably better off in something other than a Cobra, but there is a heater, just in case you want to drive this roadster in December. Its also got a good-sized trunk thats fully carpeted, so this car doesnt look or feel like a home-built special. Cobras were all about big power combined with light weight, and nothing delivers a big hit of torque like the strong-running 302 cubic inch V8 installed up front. Built only 7,094 miles ago, its plenty potent and was upgraded with an Edelbrock 600CFM 4-barrel carburetor, a Weiand aluminum intake, and long-tube headers that feed straight into the burly side pipes. Its tuned right and runs great, and thanks to finned Cobra valve covers and a matching air cleaner back-dropped against the black engine bay, it screams Ford performance. The chassis is another strong point, with a Mustang II front suspension, rack-and-pinion steering, coil-overs at all four corners, and a built 8.8-inch rear end that lives out back. The little rocket handles incredibly well and it just loafs along at highway speeds thanks to the tall overdrive in the Tremec five-speed manual transmission. And, of course, what Cobra would be complete without a set of howling side pipes, with these sounding especially luscious because theyre being fed by such a snarling small block. Gorgeous 16-inch Halibrand-style wheels with knock-offs fill the wheel wells thanks to 225/50/16 front and 295/50/16 rear BFGoodrich blackwall radials. You couldnt build this awesome Cobra for our asking price, and even if you could youd have to wait. This car is incredible, its beautifully built, it looks great, and you can drive it home today.
