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
Classic style, full utility, and plenty of comfort come together in this 1986 Chevrolet Suburban Silverado. After all, you get a three-row SUV with everything from a 4x4 drivetrain to a cold A/C interior. So when this much appeal is also so affordable, its time to pay attention. Bright red paint and a tasteful tan two-tone perfectly represents this top-of-the-line Silverado model. Not only is the paint believed to be mostly original, but the bodywork is also correct and quite nice. This SUV is nothing but straight crease lines, and horizontal brightwork, so this high-quality presentation is essential. Beautiful chrome bumpers, complete side trim, and wide step rails make this look far more substantial than its price tag would suggest. Best of all, this is the kind of classic that earns respect because so few have survived this nicely.
