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

The Jeep CJ5 is an iconic short-wheel base, go-anywhere 4x4! But just because it can get you deep into the wild, doesnt mean it shouldnt look nice out on the town also. Thats why the new Yellow and Black radiates no matter if the sunlight finds it at the campsite or the corner market. Don t let the shiny paint job of this Jeep fool you though, it has been frame off restored to be a upgraded version of its factory condition. One of our favorite parts is the amount of work the owner has taken to power coat MANY parts of this thing to keep it looking good while still rugged. Climbing into the new 3R-Racing seats you ll notice they are just as comfortable as they look. Surrounding the seats is a collection of correct Jeep parts complete with a roll bar The bikini top also coordinates in black for a terrific total look. The correct Stock/Upgraded look continues under the hood with the reinforced aluminum valve cover and air cleaner radiating from within the engine bay. But more than just for looks, the 258 cubic-inch inline-six motor is a long established power plant for Jeep and this one runs like a top! It has proven its reliability, and it continues to have easy parts availability. Torquey and robust, this is the engine you want pulling through daily traffic or the worst slop Mother Nature can throw at you. And the stainless header that feeds the exhaust upgrades the motors soundtrack nicely. The four-speed manual transmission gives you full control as it feeds the two-speed transfer case and seriously beefy Dana 44 s at both ends. 3:73 gears and low range give it rock-crawling stability, but thanks to the modern BFGoodrich mud-terrain tires and front disc brakes, its comfortable in the urban scene, too. This Jeep has been meticulously restored and needs to be seen in person to be truly appreciated. Since the build has been completed it has NOT been taken off-road but with that being said it is ready to tackle any adventure you can throw at it.
