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
A Jeeps ruggedness is its calling card, and so this 1985 CJ7 not only has the go-anywhere 4x4 utility, but also there a ton of upgrades inside and out to make this your new favorite go-anywhere machine. The fiery red with black trim gives an attention-grabbing first impression. But take a movement to get a closer look. The texture is a dead giveaway that theyve made a solid investment in covering this whole CJ in liner paint. So you know this one is ready for Mother Natures worst punishment. As you look over all the pictures, youre going to spot some great upgrades like the full-size spare on the swing-away mount and beefy tow hoof front & rear. And not only does that black trim look great, but it highlights some very useful features, like the headlight guards, fender flares, and trailer hitch. And since the removable hardtop is finished in black, too, this one looks great even when youre completely enclosed. As good as this looks with the top on, Jeep life is all about being open to the world. This one really shows that off with the right original pieces mixed with the right upgrades. It starts with the newer Bestop front bucket seats. They have good bolstering for all-day comfort, and theyre finished in a weather-resistant nylon. In between is an arm rest center console with cup holders and a lockable storage for your valuables. This secure box is also home to your AM/FM/CD stereo with aux inputs for the most modern music players. Even with these upgrades, you still get that classic Jeep feeling with the center gauge cluster dominated by the large speedo, and the tall gearshift that has a very purposeful action. Power comes from AMCs 258 cubic-inch inline-six, which is believed to be original to the vehicle. It isnt designed for all-out speed, but the huge torque and bulletproof reliability is exactly what you want - especially on the trail. And when mated to the five-speed manual transmission, you are in firm control to get the best power on-demand. This CJ is always ready for true 4x4 duty with the two-speed transfer case, lifted suspension, new leaf springs, and BF Goodrich All Terrain T/As. Plus, features like power steering and front disc brakes are welcomed addition on or off-road. This one has been given investments for extra distinction and prowess. Its a great total package thats ready to hit the trail right now. Call today!!!
