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 is pleased to present this 1979 Oldsmobile Toronado for sale in our Indianapolis showroom. This 1979 Oldsmobile Toronado has had only two owners and the odometer shows 31,201 actual miles. Complete with all of the luxury features of the day, this grand two door cruiser arrives in style in gold with a crisp gold velour interior. The power antenna for the AM/FM cassette audio system has been recently replaced, as has the air conditioner compressor. This car represents the third generation Toronado and was substantially downsized compared to its predecessor, losing nearly 1,000 lb (450 kg) and more than 20 in (510 mm) in length. Reflecting its 206 in (5,200 mm) length and 114 in (2,900 mm) wheelbase, it came equipped with the smaller Oldsmobile 350 cu in (5.7 L) V8. The engine was rated at 170 HP/270 lb.ft. torque giving it a top speed of over 110 mph (175 km/h) and a 0 60 mph (0 97 km/h) acceleration time of 9.4 seconds. This was considered one of the faster times for that era. The three-speed Turbo Hydra-Matic automatic transmission was standard equipment. Independent rear suspension (designed by Cadillac engineers) was adopted for the new car, which helped to increase usable rear-seat and trunk space in the smaller body, as well as improved handling over previous Toronados with no sacrifice in ride quality. This Toronado, along with its Riviera and Eldorado cousins, were the last body-on-frame, front wheel drive cars with longitudinally mounted V8 engines. To view this fine example of the breed, please visit our site at www.gatewayclassiccars.com, call 317-688-1100, or email us at indy@gatewayclassiccars.com. To see this 1979 Oldsmobile Toronado in person, stop by our showroom located at 4400 W 96th Street, Indianapolis, IN 46268. http://www.gatewayclassiccars.com/NDY/1139/1979-Oldsmobile-Toronado
