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
1971 Pontiac Grand Prix Pontiac ad men of the day loved to stretch the images unnaturally wider, longer and lower than they were in real life. Thats what is called artistic license and if anyone took advantage of this trick, it was the automotive ad men who put the images down for newspaper and magazine pages. Pontiacs upscale, sporty car that offers full-size comfort along with sporty looks, spirited performance and all the whistles and bells, and the purveyor of the wide track . We have on consignment, a 1971 version of this large piece of Detroit iron which is presenting in very good condition. A great early 1970s pre 5 mph crash bumper, and a return to the single headlight have this in my opinion as one of the best-looking models of the Grand Prix offering. Exterior The relatively small, yet upright, grill is topped with long, flowing lines all the way to the back edge of the hood, which neatly conceals the windshield wipers. On the bottom this grill continues through the bumper beak and is flanked by a single headlight on either side. Chrome is very nice and mirror-like on all surfaces where it is present. A deep coating of Bronzini Gold lusciously covers this steel slab sided car which appears to have been dipped in chocolate (without the drips!). Body matching mirrors are on both sides, and a Cordova vinyl top is covering the roof very neatly. A nicely sloping rear window leads to the trunk deck which follows suit and takes cues from the front with another V pointed rear panel, with underlying bumper. The taillights are neatly imbedded onto the rear bumper and the styling is reminiscent of the Buick Rivieras of yore. A shiny rocker trim runs from well to well, and the wells take from it and are surrounded by thin chromed trim. Rally 2 wheels are all around and are wrapped in like new thin white radials. Interior Looking into a very clean and well-preserved interior wrapped in Sandalwood and Gold with plenty of power options. The drivers door panel is near showroom and contains the window toggles and a LH outside mirror joystick adjuster. Seating also in Sandalwood has a mixture of buttoned broadcloth inserts and vinyl bolsters complete with pristine piping. The front is a power split back bench and the rear is a matching pattern rear bench. Noted on the drivers side rear is some water staining on the seatback within the broadcloth. The dash is all original and very clean with a rally gauge package added in at the factory. Sitting below the dash is a blast from the past in the form of an 8-track player. It is mounted to the hump with a space age pedestal. Clean gold carpet floods the floors and a tight puffy headliner hangs above. Drivetrain A numbers matching 400ci V8 sits within a nicely aged engine bay. This is topped with a Rochester Quadrajet 4-barrel carburetor, and back by a TH400 3-speed automatic. A 10-bolt rear axle with 3.08 gears is on the way back. Undercarriage Some light surface rust is noted throughout but certainly nothing to be concerned about. New shocks and a new exhaust have been recently added as well as new coil springs. Power disc brakes are on the front of the car and power drums for the rear. Drive-Ability This car starts right up effortlessly and is ready to roll to our test track. It handled beautifully with those new shocks and springs and had nice smooth acceleration and automatic shifting. Overall provided a comfortable ride. Ive personally been to this consigners garage and it is a great climate controlled, batteries on charger, stacked setup for his collection. This car shows very well just like others in his collection which seems to have a slant to early 70s iron, all in great condition, and this one is no exception. Beautiful pointed styling, and glorious paint, this one will not last long here at Classic Auto Mall.
