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
1976 Cadillac Coupe DeVille The vision for the Cadillac is based on precision engineering and the complete luxury experience. This is the reason why Cadillac is one of the finest cars ever manufactured in the United States. This tradition will carry on throughout its manufacturing history, and to this day, Cadillac still remains to be Americas finest luxury vehicles. Fords vision of precision manufacturing led to the ultimate reliability of his vehicles. Therefore, Cadillacs reputation preceded itself as the better-made automobile compared to its competitors. For consignment an original and recently well worked with over $19K put into this car to make it nearly perfect mechanically and visually. A rebuilt engine, new tires, brakes, roof, body work, carpet, master cylinder and all new paint, shes ready for her second life as a goer and a shower. 1976 never looked so good, and this Caddy DeVille is a styling example of mid 1970s excess. Queue the stairway descent! Exterior Firethorn Red Metallic paint covers new body work, straight large steel slabs, complete with some nice bite-work trimmings on rockers, trim spears, and window surrounds with beautiful Caddy script style badging. The front of the car lets this know youve arrived with a large and in charge chromed egg crate grille with a dividing front bumper, and rectangular design dual headlights. Big panels adorn and make up this car and they are all straight and true with well minded gaps. The rear has the iconic vertical bezel chromed taillights which flank a massive trunk lid, that has more taillights below and a clean integrated rear bumper below all this luxury design. Throw on an opera window on the B pillars and wrap it with padded Cotillion White vinyl and we now add even more class to this wonderful cruiser. Some wide white sidewalls adorn Caddy dog dish wheel covers, and we can say we are lookin over all really fine. Interior Recliner like red broadcloth fabric inserts on the large split bench front seat surround themselves with red vinyl bolsters. A central armrest in shiny red vinyl is in the center of the buckets and can be raised or lowered. Power movements for the front seats lets you get it just right baby bear. The drivers seat shows some sagging in the cloth insert area. A big rear bench stretches from panel to panel and also sports a central fold down shiny vinyl armrest and center divider. Red molded door panels house power windows, locks and a mirror toggle. These have a nice wood appliqu for accenting, and red think pile carpet panels on the bottoms of them. A square and rectangle design dash in red and wood appliqu shows as original as well as the tri pointed star steering wheel inset with wood appliqu center trim panel. Nice clean red carpet floods the floors and hovering above is a pristine red vinyl headliner with no marks or errors. Drivetrain All 500 cubic inches rest comfortably within this unrestored engine bay. The engine is a Jasper rebuild on consigner stated original engine. This currently has only 1,500 miles on it since the rebuild. A 4-barrel carburetor is atop and on back resides the original TH400 3-speed automatic transmission. The overall visual condition of the engine bay can be described as original and unrestored. Undercarriage Plenty of surface rust is seen one the frame and suspension parts, as well as the rockers. Floorpans remain rust free. The frame appears still structurally sound. A new fuel tank has been put on, and suspension and brakes all are in working condition. Drive-Ability The rebuilt engine starts up quick with little struggle, and off to our test track, where this car performed to our standards, with good acceleration which was smooth. The automatic transmission worked nicely, and brakes brought the car to a quick stop. Functions were all in working condition, including the newly revamped A/C system. Save for some undercarriage surface rust, this car is a very nice example of the 1976 version of the Coupe DeVille. Benefitting from a 2017 engine and drivetrain rebuild, new brakes and lines, new glovebox and door jambs, and some snappy bodywork and paint, and we have a really great skate to cruise the neighborhood or take on a vacation to Boca!
