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

1968 Pontiac Tempest Custom Hardtop. One of the few left that have not been made into a GTO. Rarer than a GTO, and only 30 less horsepower. This no-post car has been mostly located in GA and NC. The VIN plate establishes that the car was built in Baltimore Maryland, and is indeed, a Tempest Custom. Professionally painted in November 2016. Motor is a 5.7 liter (350) Pontiac, professionally rebuilt in June 2009, with hardened valve seats, so there is no need to use a lead additive in the fuel. The TH350 automatic transmission was professionally rebuilt in 2013. Rochester 4bbl carb professionally rebuilt in late 2015. Brakes overhauled in 2010. Master cylinder replaced in 2012. This Tempest has been re-wired with the Painless wiring system. Alternator replaced 2013. The high-torque starter was installed about the same time, and ensures a smooth start every time. Single CD AM/FM radio with 4 Pioneer speakers, and detachable face. Sport wheel. The original clock has been placed in storage, and was replaced with a GM tach. Seats professionally re-covered, and the original side panels were dyed at the same time. The old seat skins are in storage, as well as the old tail light lenses. The lenses were replaced with NOS (new old stock) lenses in 2012. The black carpet has been replaced and still looks like new. New Autozone gel battery. Newer tires, solid-white letter turned-in. Ball-joints, center link, rear shocks all have been recently replaced, as well as some bushings. No rust in trunk, and all of the pans were replaced in 2004. Receipts for most work since 2009. Ignition system update to point-less in late 2015, along with new wires, AC plugs, ignition ballast resistor, distributor vacuum control, coil, and fuel pump. Gas tank has just been painted, and was replaced about 7 years ago, along with the hood hinges and springs. The rear bumper has been replaced, with the old one placed in storage. The Pontiac motor combined with the Flowmaster dual exhaust system provides a sound that you will never forget. Heavy duty radiator. Heavy duty fan clutch. The radiator cap is different from what is seen in the photos, now stock, and both radiator hoses are about 6 months old. Visors just replaced.  The remote vent windows provide excellent air circulation. Power steering. The wheels are 15 x 8's, and were purchased in late 2012. This car does not burn oil or run hot. This car is a real head-turner, and a conversation piece where ever you go. Financing available through JJBest.com.  VIN# is 235378B140905. Clean title. The car may be heard on VIMEO.com.  Just type 1968 Tempest Custom into the search block.  The exhaust pipes have been painted Argent Silver since the video was taken.  910.352.0159
