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

It looks like a racecar, has 400 horsepower modern V8, and features every luxury from A/C to sat nav. Thats why this 1965 Factory Five Shelby Daytona is the best all-around retro sports car you can get your hands on right now. We all love the Daytona coupe. Carroll Shelby took his brute-force Cobra and had it wrapped around a wind-cheating design to create whats arguably the most desirable American race machine ever. And so when the masters at Factory Five create a lightweight fiberglass tribute, the result it a legendary shape, exceptional build quality, and only a fraction of what the multi-million dollar originals cost. And all the details are correct. The covered headlights, fire-breathing side pipes, big back window, and flat rear end (the real secret to why this cheats the wind.) They even got the Halibrand-style knock-off wheels with extra wide rear tires correct! But more than just an icon, you want its modern touches, too. After all, no Daytona ever had such a slick shade of silver, and the black ricing stripes are equal parts aggressive and chic. This interior is exactly how you want a vintage racer to be. The classic low-back bucket seats look terrific, and you get the modern safety of a Simpson five-point raving harness. Plus that full roll cage adds strength and security. The Factory Five three-spoke steering wheel is grippy, and the full set of AutoMeter gauges keeps all the vitals crisp and clear. But more than just a pure competition machine, this Daytona also has some great upgrades you dont get in many classics. Theres a Kenwood large AM/FM stereo with Bose speakers, and its touchscreen interface controls everything from the satellite navigation to the satellite radio. Plus, while others are sweating it out in their Shelby tributes, this coupe has ice-cold R134a air conditioning. While the design is a legendary classic, when you tilt the hood forward, youll see a very modern motor. Its a fuel-injected 6.2-liter LS3 V8. It looks just as fresh as the rest of the car, because theres less than 3,600 miles on the whole build. And while a modern performance V8 could be enough, this one has been upgraded further with features like a LS5 cam and headers feeding those growling side pipes. Now the total power rating is a tire-burning 400 horsepower. This is linked to a four-speed automatic transmission thats perfect for enjoying overdrive comfort on your way to the car show, or providing quick performance kickdowns when youre out on the racetrack. In fact, this also has an easily removable transmission cross member for switching out to a full manual transmission. These Daytonas have the same race-bred suspension as the Cobra. So you have a strong tubular chassis, independent A-arm front suspension, and a three-link rear with stabilizer bar. Plus with Koni adjustable coilovers and Wilwood four-wheel disc brakes this is a true performance thoroughbred. Complete with build receipts, this is a true race-ready machine with all the right creature comforts. So if you demand the best of everything including legacies dont miss this Shelby. Call today!!!
