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

Now for sale in our Gateway Classic Cars of Houston showroom is this brilliant pearl white Factory Five 1965 Shelby Cobra replica. A mighty 289 CID V8 engine, mated to a crisp-shifting 5-speed manual transmission provides the go; and Factory Fives tube-frame chassis with coil-overs at all 4 corners and 4-wheel power disc brakes handle keeping things wheels down and with aplomb. The 289 is fed by the big Holley 4BBL carb and gets spark from the requisite MSD ignition. A big aluminum radiator with an electric fan help keep the mill in proper operating temps. Custom ceramic-coated headers feed into the dual side-pipes and provide for that great throaty sound that the early Cobras were famous for. A full set of Autometer Phantom gauges help the driver monitor critical operating functions. Fast is a complete understatement. With little to no weight and a potent V8 up front, this thing is a rocket, and this rocket has been very well kept and cared for over its life, having only covered 9603 miles since it was built in 2005, so its broken in but not worn out. The black/white/silver them is a pleasant change from the usual blue/white/gray color combo. A custom Cobra-logoed set of aluminum wheels with machined silver lips and black centers are shod with some very sticky BF Goodrich G-Force T/A radials, 245/45ZR17 up front, and 285/40ZR17s out back. Inside, youll find a spartan black interior, with some features not found on the originals. For instance, there are gas struts to keep the hood and trunk open, electric seat warmers for the lower cushions on the synthetic leather seats, and an iPod connection for the hidden stereo, which is powered by a Profile AP400 amp, and shoots the tunes out a pair of Polk Audio 2-way speakers. It also sports HID headlights. Whether youre looking for a cruiser, track day car, show car or something fun, this is the car. This car gives you the feeling of driving a real Cobra, but without the 6- to 7-figure price tag. When youre behind the wheel of a Cobra, its just you, the car and the road ahead. A true drivers car. Anyone looking at the pictures and video of this beautiful machine can clearly see why its a great buy. The design is timeless. Dont wait until its gone to inquire. Dont miss your chance to get behind the wheel of this one.
