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.

Classic Car Overview

An exceptionally rare drop-top that gives you a unique appearance and trusty components underneath. Thats the appeal of owning a classic like this 1985 Mercury Capri ASC McLaren convertible. The fact that its also a loaded, low-mileage, and affordable V8 classic is just the cherry on top. Those who dont know the history of these ASC McLarens are always curious about what this convertible is. And those already in the know just say WOW! Thats because these are a rare creation. Costing nearly as much as a Lincoln coupe when new, there were less than 260 of these convertibles produced in 1985. The reason for the expense is because the drop-top masters at ASC were contracted to give the premium Mercury Capri its own upper-level convertible. This included a new ground effects kit and a unique deck lid. This one is even more unique, because it borrows the face of another rare Ford, the Merkur coupe. This special convertible looks premium thanks to a well-done respray that gives the red a good gloss and a deep shine. Its a two-seater with a flush-fitting tonneau when the top is town, just like a Mercedes SL. But we actually like it even more with the top up, because the profile is truly unique compared to its Mustang and Cougar siblings. Inside this one provides the right kind of luxury mixed with performance. Its loaded with all the right equipment like power windows, power locks, AM/FM/cassette stereo, and provisions for air conditioning (will need servicing to blow cold again.) The wood paneled dash has plenty of great features, including a full gauge package. And since many of the main components are sourced from Ford/Mercury, its still easy to service this low-batch custom. And while its rarity means youll love it for collecting, you also wont be able to resist taking it out for plenty of weekend adventures. After all the supple leather bucket seats and upgraded sports steering wheel on a tilt column make for a great drivers classic. As special as this car is inside and out, we love that under the hood is a trusty 5.0-liter. This is believed to be original to the car, and it was one of the best V8s of the day. So components are plentiful, and that keeps this rare ASC McLaren easy to maintain. In fact, you can tell from the pics that there have been a few of the right upgrades. It includes a Champion aluminum radiator, MSD ignition, and a Brawler four-barrel carburetor. And youll love taking this one out on the road thanks to a suspension package that helped this car earn the McLaren part of its name. Plus, the power steering, power front disc brakes, and four-speed automatic transmission w/overdrive make it a great a great anytime driving choice. Please inquire for a list of recently replaced items on this vehicle! Few classics hit all the high notes or uniqueness, rarity, and affordability. So you know a total package like this wont stay available for long. Dont miss out, call today!
