1982 Excalibur Series IV
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
The Excalibur Series IV the most looked at production automobile in America. It exudes power without arrogance, beauty without conceit, and continues to be the standard by which all others of its kind are judged. The four passenger Series IV Phaeton carries on the tradition of combining the nostalgic styling of the Mercedes Benz classics with the technological expertise of modern engineering. Production of the Series IV will be limited, as it always has been, to assure exclusivity and protect the buyers investment.
The Excalibur Series IV a triumph of function and style, durability and beauty, that could never be misinterpreted as mere luxury. Everything about this automobile bespeaks the dedication to detail and quality that go into the creation of each component, from the hand layed-up fiberglass body to the all stainless steel exhaust system. The series IV is powered by a General Motors 5 liter, V-8 engine coupled to a three speed Turbo-Hydramatic 400 transmission and conforms to all federal and California emission standards.
