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
With its correct color combo, correct bucket seat Super Sport interior, numbers matching big block in the engine bay, this 1966 Chevrolet Impala SS is full-size vintage coupe that offers a lot of temptingly correct features in a very attractively restored package. Chevrolets full-size Impala really looks sleek and striking in 66, and this hardtop coupe represents it all quite nicely. The factory-correct Sandalwood has a nice gloss thanks to a respray later in life. We like this on the Impala, because Chevys designers really let this long coupe develop its line nicely. So the extended slope of the roofline, kick-up behind the doors, and full-length body crease look great in the sunlight on this very straight classic. The wraparound bumpers and all the other brightwork look like they received an investment, too. So they go well with the upgraded polished American Racing Torq Thrust wheels. The factory-correct Fawn interior looks great against the exterior. The consignor states this is original to the car, and it has a really well-preserved presentation particularly for being 52 years old. Thats what you get on a vehicle that has averaged less than 1,300 miles over more than half a century. Youre looking at a real-deal code-68 Super Sport, so you get great features like bucket seats up front. They have a low-back presentation to give this pillarless hardtop a terrific uncluttered profile when all the windows are down. In-between is a premium center console and sporty floor shift. The whole presentation proves this is a fine place to spend some time. And thats a good thing, considering the full-size Impala SS has plenty of room to carry five total in comfort. This one feels like proper 1960s motoring with the factory Impala steering wheel, heat/defrost sliders, and large horizontal speedometer. Even the upgraded AM/FM stereo has a vintage look to give you modern music without jeopardizing the vintage atmosphere. Under the hood is the famous 396 cubic-inch big block. This is the original motor to the car, and so they made sure to present it correctly. Thats why youll love the details, like the smooth fender walls, classic top battery, and even the correct windshield fluid refill bottle mounted inside. The block looks quite bold, and theres a hint of flair on the ribbed valve covers that proudly announce this big blocks displacement. The V8 fires up readily and it inhales deeply from the correct Quadrajet four-barrel carburetor. It exhales with authority out of the upgraded X-pipe dual exhaust. Out on the road, the three-speed automatic transmission, power steering, power brakes, and nice investment in the suspension keep this a great cruiser. This is vintage luxury and power that comes together in a distinctive package. So dont miss your chance, call today!
