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.

And when you look under the hood to see serious 428 big block V8 power, and you notice the affordable price, you need to seriously hurry up because someone else might grab this exceptional deal.

Now over half a century later how many of these classics do you think are remaining? This example looks quite good as it balances its premium and sporty images. For example, the factory-correct red makes a bold first impression, and it has been updated later in life so that this sunshine-friendly convertible still has a nice gloss on a Sunday drive. And if the weather does turn wet, the white convertible top gives this one the all-American appeal of a Coca-Cola bottle. The full-length side trim showcases the straightness of the sheetmetal.

So this Mercury is elegant, sporty, coordinated, premium, imposing, and absolutely appealing - all in the first glance. While we like the way this one looks with the roof in place, with the flip of a switch, it powers down to reveal an even more impressive interior.

Still, there are going to be plenty of people who want to go for a ride in this six-person convertible. So to keep them entertained, there was a modern AM/FM/CD stereo with USB and Bluetooth added under the dash for the best in upgraded driving music.

But youll also spot the right upgrades, like and MSD coil and distributor. This kind of care means the motor fires eagerly.
