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 1984 Chevrolet K5 Blazer is serious. Seriously powerful, seriously capable, and seriously good looking. You can drive it uptown where it will turn heads or drive it out into the middle of nowhere to clear your own. Read through the basics presented here, then come on down to get the rest of the story and check it out for yourself. Describing this truck from the top down seems like describing the icing on a cake first. It has received an extensive restoration, with great stuff on the inside, but the icing is what you see first. So... how about that slick two-tone paint? It seems to be saying go big or go home as it flows up and over the cowl hood and highlights the body crease that is at eye level now because of the lift kit. Everything is new from the bumpers, grille, and trim, to the glass and the mirrors. The paint-matched removable hardtop makes for some nice open air 4-wheeling while keeping any water from rain or splashing through the creeks from getting the driver and passenger wet. Shiny step bars match the Pacer wheels, and the lift gives the whole truck an even more aggressive look, as if it needed any help in that department. The handsome blue cloth interior is also in excellent condition, offering new seat covers, carpet, door panels, and a dash pad you could eat off. The original gauges are in the dash surrounded by a new bezel, because this truck hasnt been extensively altered from original spec inside, still sporting the original steering wheel, and a long list of factory options like power windows and locks, a tilt wheel, a center console, and cold A/C make this Blazer as much luxury vehicle as trail-blazer, and if you really want to attract attention, try making this your daily driver! An updated Sony AM/FM/CD stereo was installed, so no worries there if you like to blast tunes. Full-sized Blazers also give you a massive cargo area thats fully upholstered and offers enough room for all your gear on a weekend getaway. Theres still a small block Chevy under the hood, but this one is fortified with a Vortec 350 fed through a Holley 4-barrel carb. It looks quite stock and as many OEM parts as possible were retained, including the serpentine accessory drive, air cleaner, and exhaust manifolds. The A/C system has been converted to R134a refrigerant and it fills the cab with cold, fresh air. Theres a 700R4 4-speed automatic transmission driving a two-speed transfer case, so its equally at home on the highway or in the dirt, and a hearty rumble bellows from the Flowmaster dual exhaust system. The suspension has been set up to accommodate the large lift, and the Blazer sits on massive Pro Comp all-terrain tires wrapped around 15-inch chrome Pacer wheels. Seriously powerful, capable, and good looking. Come on down and check this truck out. This one could be yours. Seriously.
