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 proud to offer this rare extremely low mile original 1983 Buick Regal Limited. The original cream paint still looks brand new. It has only been driven 7390 miles, but theres very little evidence of it and youll be pleasantly surprised by just how good build quality was in 1985. Those big doors close with ease and thanks to healthy rubber weather seals, the interior is as quiet as a tomb. The vinyl half-roof adds some formality, and after seeing all those blacked-out Grand Nationals at every show, this one proudly wears a ton of chrome, all of which remains in very good overall condition. The interior is in fantastic condition. It appears to be almost entirely original, but its obvious that someone took exceptionally good care of it throughout its life. Its almost impossible to see where anyones posterior has been, because the drivers seat is firm, the steering wheel is like new, and theres not even a little depression where youd rest your elbow on the center armrest. The carpets shows minimal wear thats probably inevitable on the deep pile they used in 85, and the burled walnut appliques actually look pretty convincing. Options include power windows, factory A/C, a tilt steering column, cruise control, and an AM/FM/cassette radio, power brakes, power steering, cloth interior, white walls, radial tires. Buicks indestructible 3.8 liter V6 provides plenty of grunt in the upscale Regal and is as silky smooth as youd expect. It has been properly maintained, so everything works like it should and the car starts, idles, and runs very much like its 1985 all over again. Given the bulletproof reliability of Buicks 3.8, you can drive this car with confidence just as you might have in 1985. The 4-speed automatic transmission shifts beautifully and the overdrive and highway gears out back make this a super highway cruiser ready for a road trip.
