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. This gorgeous blue CJ-7 is in the final few years of production of the CJ, and looks as good as ever! The blue paint against the various chrome accents is a great combination, giving this Jeep a unique appearance. The aftermarket polished wheels and mud tires really tie it all together! The body is clean and straight, covered in a gorgeous gloss blue paint job. With soft doors, a full soft top and a bikini top included with the sale, this Jeep is ready to go for all your needs year round! Something about the dark blue and the black doors really makes it stand out, and gives it that classic CJ Jeep look. If youve driven a Jeep, you probably have thought I wish this was faster at some time or another. Whether you have or not, rest assured this CJ-7 is faster than your average Jeep...much faster! Someone installed a Roush Yates Ford Performance 392 V8 motor and a 5-speed manual transmission. Whoever performed the installation did it correctly, as it looks like it couldve left the factory this way. However, to put this kind of power in a short wheelbase vehicle like this is as glorious as it is borderline insane! This thing is a blast to drive. The transmission is a Dodge NV4500, and both axles are Ford 9 s with 4:30 gears. The rear end has traction lock. Everything functions as it should, meaning the 4x4 is working correctly, A/C is blowing cold and it is turn-key. The interior is minimalist, as any good Jeep should be, but the brown seats are the perfect accent against the blue. Finished in what appears to be a marine-grade material, getting caught in a little rain isnt a concern. The materials are from Bestop, a company well-known in the Jeep community for making durable interior components. A modern radio is mounted in the locking center console so you can listen to tunes the modern way without ruining the classic look or worrying about theft! Truly dialed in from top to bottom, this Jeep is a summer of fun waiting to happen! We doubt youll bump into another one like this at a local show, and anytime you go out all your friends will want to take your CJ. If youve been waiting for the right Jeep to come along, dont pass this one by! Contact Shelton Classics & Performance for details at (704) 663-0432 or visit www.SheltonClassics.com DOES IT WORK?
