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

This 1966 Shelby Cobra 428 ERA has a ton of style, but what youll really love is the substance behind it all. Thats because you have a performance-built 428 V8, fully independent suspension, four-wheel disc brakes, five-speed, and so much more. Its hard to resist a Cobra finished in blue and white. Its like Carroll Shelby made sure this color theme was as much a part of the legend as the throaty exhaust note. And this one does it with some added style with details like a metallic element in the paint to make it really pop in the sunshine. And the wheels are painted for a touch of flair. Its part of a reoccurring theme youll see on this car that delivers both style and substance. After all, bright pieces like the roll hoop and coated side pipes add shine, and at the same time, they make it a true racer. The black interior continues the competition machine attitude, and with only about 1,200 miles on the whole build, everything remains crisp and clean. The classic-style bucket seats have nice padding and proper Simpson racing harnesses. More vintage elements get the Cobra atmosphere right, like the wood-rimmed AC steering wheel and forward leaning shift lever for the drivers ideal placement. And the dash has a great look with the clear Stewart Warner full gauge package with GPS speedo and large tach. A 428 cubic-inch big block is always awesome to have under the hood, but thats just the base for this full high-performance setup. The V8 includes its correct police interceptor intake, Cobra Jet heads, roller cam, roller rockers, polished crank, and forged pistons. The air box seals to the hood so that you get cold/fresh air feeding the Holley double-pumper four-barrel carburetor. If this sounds like a professional grade setup, its because the motor builder was said to have worked for Holman & Moody! Jet Hot coated headers add extra power while feeding the growling side pipes. And youre in complete control of this motors fury and thunder thanks to the Doug Nash 4+1 five-speed manual transmission featuring a Centerforce clutch and flywheel. Because this is built for strong competition driving, you have a strong steel chassis and a fully-independent suspension. And dont forget that the Jag rear end means the rear disc brakes are inboard for less unsprung weight. This vehicle is titled as a 1999. The consigner is also a member of a professional race team, and so you know he wanted to take the time and get this right. That means a top-quality true performance build is up for grabs. Dont let it slip away. Call now!
