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
1972 Chevrolet Monte Carlo The 1972 Chevrolet Monte Carlo was billed as Americas most attainable luxury car. The personal-luxury Monte Carlo flaunted a cleaner front-end appearance with parking lights flanking a fresh wide-mesh grille. Rear ends stuck with tall vertical taillights but added a horizontal bright trim strip above the bumper. Top engine was the 270-horsepower 454-cubic-inch V-8, followed by a 240-horsepower 402-cubic-inch V-8 - still called a 396 . The 454 V-8 cost an extra $261, while the 402 added $142 to a Montes sticker. Californians had to be content with a 165 or 175-horsepower 350-cubic-inch V8 because the larger engines failed to meet that states emissions standards.Owning a Monte Carlo is kind of like having your cake and driving it too, Chevrolet insisted, blending the best virtues of the luxury car and the sporty car. Base-priced at $3,362, the Monte Carlo could be fitted with a long list of luxury conveniences to suit its owner. For consignment this little piece of writers birthday cake in a 1972 Monte Carlo and folks its pristine. Rare Tuxedo Black paint special ordered from the factory, this 2 door hardtop example is black and beautiful, and has plenty of nicely preserved chrome trimmings to put the icing on the cake. An egg crate grille, single headlights, a rear bumper that works with the rear quarter to house the taillights and there is nothing but sweetness here on the Classic Auto Mall floor. Not to mention the laser straight panels like each piece was cut like a knife through butter, we can serve up plenty for your satisfaction. Interior Beautiful black vinyl whips itself up into a frenzy with faux leather panels separated by buttons. A clean door pull and opening handle and armrest are like black butter cream icing on a black vinyl bucket seat, console center original dash cake. To add some extra flavor is a nicely preserved burl walnut applique dash, complete with all the buttons, knobs and levers as the decoration. A Sony aftermarket radio with cassette is carefully mounted into the dash as well as some sweet A/C and pristine black carpet flooding the bottom. On top we note a beautifully tight headliner with nary a mark on it with a large near showroom bench across the back of the car below. Drivetrain Slicing open the hood, we can look into the cooked batter and see in the form of a big 402ci V8 which is numbers matching. Atop is a Rochester Quadrajet 4-Barrel carburetor, and on back a numbers matching 3-speed TH400 automatic transmission. Waaaay back is a 12-bolt 2.73 posi rear axle... Quick light the candles!! Undercarriage Not unlike the Teflon pan it may have been cooked in, there is no residue in the form of any surface rust, all strong steel frame, and floor pan construction. For the suspension we note in ingredients such as independent coil springs for front suspension, and 4 link coil springs for the rear. Also mixed into the suspension are front power discs and rear power drum brakes. Drive-Ability Make a wish because weve already lit the candles and they are burnin strong. We flip it onto gear and also can light up the rear tires on the way to our test track. Here we put it through the taste testing, and it ran smooth, handled the texture of the pavement just beautifully, gave us good acceleration of taste, and sounded just fab with the Flowmaster exhaust. An example that in my mind takes the cake without the NHTSA bumpers, beautiful chrome, and lots of trim. The black paint is deep dish, and the interior tasteful. With the consigner stated 9,000 original miles youll be taking an extra piece of this classic serving. Make a wish!
