1972 Lincoln Mark IV
Car for sale by Crevier Classic Cars in Costa Mesa, California 92626
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.

The Lincoln Continental Mark IV was new for the 1972 model year, available only as a two-door hardtop coupe. It was instantly recognizable because of its small “Greek Temple” grille, oval opera windows, and Continental rear trunk lid hump that evoked the Continental Kits of the 1950s. On top of all that, the new Continental was four inches longer than the 1971 model, adding to the visual impression of an extremely long hood.
Under that long hood was a 460-cid big-block V-8 sourced from Ford. The Mark IV delivered 224 net hp, down quite a bit from the 365 hp of the 1971 model. Some of that loss reflects the change from gross to net horsepower in 1972, but the earlier engine had a 10.5:1 compression ratio, while the new 460 had only 8.5:1.
