We have to thank BangShifter Brad Berglund for tipping us off to this sweet 1988 Plymouth Gran Fury cop car that is for sale in the Wisconsin Dells. The car is rust free, dent free, and even the interior looks like it has held up well. These are the kind of forgotten third player in the 1980s cop car world with the Fords and Chevrolets garnering most of the headlines. We were hoping that this car had the 360 4bbl engine but alas, it has the more economical 318 2bbl combo that probably wouldn’t win a high speed chase against a Honda Civic. That can easily be fixed though and it would be cool to build a stroker motor out of the original block.
We’re going to guess that this was a detectives car as it does not have any of the stuff you’d want to have in the patrol car like something to keep the bad guys in the back seat, something to stop the really bad guys like a shotgun, no signs of the big radio that can be found in many of the cars, and the seats are not worn enough for it to have been entered and exited a million and a half times over the course of its life.
Call us crazy but we like these cars and with the right engine combo and maybe some 275 radials wrapped around those rear wheels it could be a hell of a lot of fun, especially with the kids in the back seat.
