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.

Savoy Faire is Everywhere

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

Jeep CJ7 Custom Conversion 1982 Body with 2005 5.3L GM Engine

Body Mileage: 171,570

Engine Mileage: 27,570

Transmission Mileage: 10,579

I bought this restored CJ7 from the original owner in October 2009 with 160,100 miles (VIN #1JCBN87EXCT014032). I added many features listed below, and shipped it to Maui in December of that year. Once on Maui I realized that the original 4 cylinder ‘Iron Duke’ was just not enough power.

I hired Novak (http://www.novakadapt.com/index.htm) to perform a complete conversion in May of 2010. This included replacing the old Iron Duke with a GM Generation III Series 5.3L Vortec engine from a 2005 Silverado (VIN #2GCEC13Z871183143); installing a new AX15 Terminator 5 speed manual transmission; and installing a new radiator, fan, A/C system, hoses, wire assembly, drive shafts, and exhaust system.  The 5.3L engine had 17,000 miles on it when the Silverado was totaled. Check the Novak link above where there is a video featuring this Jeep conversion.

In total, I have invested just over $43,000 in the Jeep, the conversion and all of the other upgrades.

In July 2013 I shipped the CJ to Long Beach and drove it to where I live in Phoenix.

I love this CJ, but I don’t have room to keep it. I have a 1970 Jeepster Commando that I also did a Novak Conversion on that I am keeping as I can tow my boat on that machine.
