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
Now for sale in our Houston Showroom is this 1972 Buick Riviera Boattail . This model of Riviera was only available from 71- 73 landing this right in the middle. This beauty is hard to be mistaken for any other classics and features a very similar rear window to the C2 Corvette. This mafia looking monster is powered by what s believed to be the original 455 CID V8 and paired up to a 3-speed automatic transmission. The transmission had all new seals installed back in September of 2017 to include the front pump seal, shaft seal, speedo seal, all exterior seals, trans filter and a pan gasket. This beauty came from the factory with the dual exhaust and makes for a great driver. After going through an extensive restoration roughly 10 years ago, this car is still in good condition. Some of the restoration work includes a new steering box, new 4 row radiator, A/C compressor, new brakes, new master cylinder, and even a repaint done by Rosehill Paint and Body. To ensure a stable ride, the pitman arms, tie rod ends, and bearing were also replaced. The car has plenty of documentation and receipts giving the new owner plenty of history with it. In all, the receipts alone total out to around $20,000 showing this car has been well cared for through the years. Walking around the car you will find it s in good driver condition. The car was originally painted green from the factory, but the black really gives the car an aggressive look to it. All the chrome trimming is in good condition as well. This classic has some nice curves to it and has great potential. With already a limited number of years in this body style, these are only going to become rarer as time goes on. The interior of the car is in good condition with no major rips or tears. This classic Riviera features all the comforts of your modern vehicles such as power windows, power seats, cold blowing A/C, and power locks. Other options include power steering, power brakes, AM/FM stereo, and functioning clock.
