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
Gateway Classic Cars of Tampa is proud to offer this sharp 1972 Plymouth Scamp. There are two ways to build a fast car: make it powerful or make it light. Or better yet, combine the two and build a fast, agile street performer like this cool little 1972 Plymouth Scamp. With a thumping 340 under the hood and an appealing paint job, this is an extremely fun car thats also very reasonably priced. This one is the result of a project that transformed your moms grocery-getter into a sharp, pavement-twisting, and fun little compact. The bodywork is well done, and was clearly a solid, original car that needed little sheet metal fabrication. You cant miss the dual white hood scoops, tight white vinyl top, and painted to match Mopar wheels that are wrapped in Cooper Cobra tires. Jumping inside this cool little scamp youll find a nicely presented vinyl blue seats and door panels. The dash is nicely preserved with all the original gauges and just over 51k on the odometer. The current owner has enjoyed this Mopar for the last 15 years and about 4 years ago decided to rebuild the engine and transmission. While most Scamps limped along with a slant-six, this one has had new life breathed into it thanks to a 340 cubic inch V8 pulled from a Plymouth Duster. Appearing as it was factory, the matching turquoise paint on the engine block looks very vintage, and the chrome on the air cleaner and valve covers adds some flash. It was rebuilt about 3,500 miles ago with an upgraded aluminum radiator, 4-barrel carburetor on top, and even clean manifolds. A dual exhaust system peaking out the rear means it sounds as nasty as it looks but it doesnt mind traffic with a big radiator. The engine is backed by an automatic transmission that was also just rebuilt 3,500 miles ago and feeds a robust rear end that doesnt seem to mind the torque. Front-wheel disc brakes deliver reliable stops, undoubtedly assisted by power brake booster. In my opinion, the best feature on this car is the cold original AC compressor. Yes, that is correct, this 1970s R12 A/C compressor is blowing cool air! When was the last time you saw a Plymouth Scamp of any sort, let alone one built to this level? This cars awesome power-to-weight ratio makes it a blast on the road, so youve been looking for your next summer cruiser, this one deserves to be at the top of your list. Call today!
