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.
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
Gateway Classic Cars of Dallas is proud to present this time capsule of a 1983 Jeep CJ-8 Scrambler. A cool icon meets rarity, 4x4 prowess, and plenty of flair in this 1983 Jeep CJ8 Scrambler. As far as classic Jeep aesthetics, it doesnt get much better than this. The CJ8 is covered in a slick Silver thats the perfect background for the tan hardtop. The iconic seven-slot grille, tubular bumper with a brush guard, side mirrors, and 15-inch wheels are all polished to a mirror-like shine. So yes, this is a standout Scrambler. But even the pretty boys still know how to get to work. Thats why you have a full-size spare and a rubber mat protecting the truck bed. While the design lines of these are iconic, the longer wheelbase CJ8 is a rare sight. In fact, Jeep sold nearly eight times more CJ5s & 7s in 83 than the Scrambler pickup. This Scrambler is all about allowing you to choose your level of open air. Its a sung hardtop pickup when you need closed security, or you can remove the doors and top to have the best features of Jeep and truck utility combined. That makes this Scrambler versatile and ideal for everyone from longboard surfers to those who occasionally bring home large projects. The controls are laid out in typical Jeep fashion, with a grippy three-spoke steering wheel, column-mounted automatic transmission selector, and a short stalk floor shifter for the four-wheel drive. Plus, heater controls and gauges are clustered in the center of the dash for easy operation. Under the hood is the stout 4.2L inline-six motor. Engine transmission and gearsets rebuilt about 1000 miles ago. Its a long-established powerplant for Jeep that has proven its reliability and continues to have easy parts availability. Torquey and robust, this has always been the right motor to be paired with the off-road-ready Jeeps. Tall gears and a low range in the transfer case give it rock-crawling stability, but thanks to the modern BF Goodrich All-Terrain T/As tires, it can cruise easily at highway speeds, too. In fact, with its 3-speed auto transmission, power steering, and front disc brakes, this Scrambler is just as comfortable being a city slicker on the weekdays as it is a country climber on the weekends. New brakes and master cylinder, Speed Hut Gauges, AM FM MP3 Radio. Scramblers are an awesome way to enjoy vintage Jeep looks while getting added rarity and versatility. So when you can find a nicely finished example like this one, you know you need to hurry if you want to take it home. Call now!
