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 has recently rolled out a Wrangler-based pickup prototype, but the idea isnt new. This nut-and-bolt built 1982 Jeep CJ8 Scrambler is proof of concept thirty years ago and is dressed in a bright Tangelo Orange color scheme that works perfectly with the hot-rod Jeeps burly 355 cubic inch V8 living under the hood. With this 4x4, you can go anywhere, carry everything, and do it in a hurry, all with the confidence of having what might be the nicest Scrambler at the Jeep Jamboree. The CJ8 was a longer version of the CJ7, which had both the benefit of increasing cargo capacity and improving the on-road ride. Only a handful were built during six years of production, and the numbers in 1982 didnt even break 3000, so finding one this nice today is quite unexpected. This one has been rebodied with a fiberglass tub and panels for optimum durability, and the House of Kolor paint it wears today has an awesome look that is a lot flashier than youd expect for 1982 but works extremely well today. The doors and hood fit well, a louvered hood insert is installed, and theres a bikini-top for a little added all-weather comfort. This Jeep also features a front bumper-mounted winch centered in-between auxiliary LED lights and aggressive CJ flares for the fenders which allow oversized tires and protect the bodywork when off road. Powder-coated bumpers, a roll bar, an elevated rear-mounted matching spare, and powder-coated step bars give it a no-nonsense look that suits it well. Unlike most CJs, the CJ8 Scrambler isnt just basic inside, but does cater to the guy who understands that playing outside can be a dirty affair. Fortunately, comfort and simplicity can live together in the form of supportive Bestop weatherproof bucket seats (and matching rear bench) over a neatly laid heavy-duty carpet. Have fun, get dirty, quick clean and do it again, it s the Jeep way. Aftermarket Auto Meter gauges display in the center of the dash, along with a column-mounted tach, and for the serious trial rider a clinometer was installed directly under the centered switch panel. An aftermarket center console provides some weatherproof storage and a pair of cup holders (good luck with those on the trail!), and theres a grab bar for passengers. Youll also note there are only two pedals on the floor and a floor-mounted B&M shifter for the 3-speed automatic transmission, a relatively rare option but fully appreciated in this Scrambler. To go with its added size, this CJ8 Scrambler carries reliable Chevy 355 cubic inch V8 under the squared-off hood. With plenty of torque to move this 4x4 over any terrain, it makes pleasant V8 noises and is the perfect partner to the TH350 automatic transmission and locker/titanium axles, making climbing around off-road a low-stress proposition. Punched-up with a FiTech EFI system, aluminum heads, a full MSD system, and an overall clean look that suggests careful maintenance since it was built, and it probably hasnt hit the trails yet in the 2,600 miles its spent on the road since the build completion. It also offers power steering and hydroboost brakes to help out when the going gets tough, and a soundtrack provided by shorty headers feeding a new Magnaflow exhaust system underneath. Manual-locking hubs provide the ultimate in reliability and traction, and the powder-coated and paint-matched undercarriage shows the results of a full frame-off restoration that was finished not too long ago. Will you even have the courage to take this one into the dirt? The Fox shocks balance the 4.5/5.5 inch lift, and the Scrambler sits on big blacked-out alloys wrapped in oversized 35x12.5-15 Nitto Trail Grappler M/T tires. A neat footnote in Jeep history thats suddenly back in fashion, this Scrambler is also a great collectable that can still go anywhere, and you may never find a nicer one than this. Call today!
