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

This 1979 Chevrolet Impala was the current owners first car. It was purchased from the original owner in 1996 from Whiteman Chevrolet. The current owner replaced the gage cluster with a caprice classic cluster with four round gages vs. the original square speedometer. He also replaced the steering column with a caprice classic tilting column. The headliner, C-pillars, and headrest have been re-upholstered with color matched materials. He also replaced the vinyl floor mats with color matched carpeted floor mats. During his teenage years he replaced the original radio with a Sony cassette deck, with a Rockford Fosgate Punch 500-W amp and two subwoofers in the trunk. He also put a tachometer where a clock would normally reside in the center of the dash to keep an eye on the engine. For the exterior, he replaced the wheels and springs from a newer B-Body 1996 Chevy Impala SS which lowered the car overall about an inch. The grille is an aluminum slit style grille custom made for the car. The Impala SS emblems are from an early 60s Impala and are not true to the car, which was another teenage addition in the late 90s. The engine is a 454ci big block Chevy with high flow aluminum L-88 heads from the late 1960s generation Corvette. It has a high lift roller Iskenderian camshaft, ceramic coated Hooker headers, dual exhaust through 40 series Flowmasters, 650 Vacuum secondary carburetor, K&N air filter, HEI distributor, and MSD spark plug wires. The current owner also upgraded the radiator to a larger core since the original vehicle came with a 305 ci small block. There is no overheating issues on longer drives. He made a trip to Lake Placid last year and engine temps never got above 220 F. The transmission is a 4L-80E out of a heavy duty Chevy pickup. The transmission has been rebuilt with larger servos and is controlled by a JET transmission controller. The rear end is a 411 limited slip differential. All maintenance, transmission rebuild, and driveline work.
