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 has perhaps one of the most storied histories of any American-made vehicle, with the production of the same basic concept and design lasting since inception during WWII to now. While a brand new Jeep may be a far cry from the original Willys, consumers and enthusiasts of all kinds have been attracted to these timeless icons as long as Jeeps have been available. The CJ (Civilian Jeep) designation was used from 1945-1986, at which time the classic Jeep received its first major redesign and became the Wrangler. The CJ-8 Scrambler was an interesting variation due to the removable hard top (a Jeep essential) and the extended wheel base giving it more use as a light duty pickup truck. This gorgeous CJ-8 Scrambler Laredo is a beautiful example of the first Scrambler production year and looks as good as ever! The classic paint scheme and Scrambler decal package is a great combination, giving this Jeep a pure 1980s appearance. Sitting on newer chrome wheels with mild off-road tires and a slight lift really ties it all together! It appears that it isnt a fresh restoration, but shows extremely well. Not to mention, with a removable hard top, this Jeep is ready to go for all your light duty pickup needs year round! If youve driven a classic AMC Jeep, you are probably familiar with the classically reliable AMC 258 (4.2) inline six cylinder engine. Theyre easy to service, and can last a long time under proper maintenance! The 258 is a great choice for this type of vehicle; it wont go fast, but itll go just about anywhere! Everything is tied together nicely under the hood, and a lack of extreme modifications ensures that this Jeep is easy to service on your own. With a 4-speed manual transmission, this Jeep is the perfect fit for a fun cruiser or a weekend offroader. It purrs like a kitten and drives like a Jeep! The interior is minimalist, as any good Jeep should be, but the brown seats are the perfect accent against the black. Finished in Bestop Aqua seat material, getting caught in a little rain with the top off isnt a concern. Additionally, a modern Alpine radio is mounted in the dash to pair with the Alpine speakers and tweeters that are installed. Talk about ready to cruise with the top off! Last but not least, this Jeep was outfitted with an air conditioning unit under the dash as part of the Laredo package. Just what you need to keep you cool throughout the summer! The A/C works as it should and blows nice & cold. If youre looking for a classic Jeep that will stand out in a crowd, this Scrambler may just be the one for you. Dont pass up this opportunity to own a gorgeous piece of 1980s Jeep history! Contact Shelton Classics & Performance for details at (704) 663-0432 or visit www.SheltonClassics.com DOES IT WORK?
