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.

Savoy Faire is Everywhere

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

1978 Lincoln Town Coupe. Last year of the 460's. Every option except rear disk brakes. Car sat from 1998 - 2013. Purchased it with 33,000mi, got it running and gave it to my eldest son for his 16th birthday. Both our boy's drove the car thru High School and are now both off to college and car needs to find a new home. All the usual items have been replaced to maintain as daily driver. Car is not a cream puff as photos will show but it has never been abused as it promotes slow cruising as opposed to high speed foolishness. For the new owner this car can be the beginning of a timeless classic restoration or a unique custom. It is amazing how much attention this car gets. Even the boys girlfriends loved it. 

 Some items to note:

Front lowered 2.5" with help from OEM spring supplier to Lincoln

Close ratio steering box (to provide more modern car steering)

KYB shocks (to provide more modern car suspension feel)

Cam timing set straight up and Reincarnation (a Ford 460 expert) distributer  to match

All front end bushings replaced 

New Tires

A/C Cold 

Pioneer hands-free Bluetooth stereo hidden in glovebox. Kicker speakers installed in doors and rear deck. Pioneer subwoofer under rear seat. (sound quality is quite good -  hands free phone is a must these days).
