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
The square body Chevy is one of the best and most popular GM truck platforms ever produced. Introduced as the replacement for the also classic 1967-1972 generation, the square body had a lot to live up to! Though consumers may have been initially suspicious, the square body quickly proved itself a worthy replacement. Both the Chevrolet and GMC versions of these trucks are sought after today both as a collector vehicle and a reliable workhorse. Those that survived use as an industrial vehicle, like this 1990 Chevrolet Blazer, are a rare example and certainly a hot commodity these days! Worth noting, 1987 was the end of the square body pickup as the GMT400 was introduced as a replacement in 1988. The square body Blazer and Suburban were constructed until 1991, after which the GMT400 versions of both were introduced. This is a nearly stock, largely unmolested, 1990 Blazer square body. Offered in the classic and eye-catching color combination of blue on black, this pickup has survived 35 years and 265,000 miles without being abused, heavily modified, or otherwise beaten into the ground. Tasteful aftermarket upgrades include a modern radio, aftermarket wheels, and dual exhaust. Upgrades aside, seeing one of these Blazers that hasnt been abused beyond recognition is truly something worth seeing. Though you may find minor wear and scratches in the paint finish, this can certainly be expected on any vehicle with high mileage and especially on a vehicle of this age. The exterior is in overall great condition and needs nothing to be enjoyed as-is. The interior, much like the rest of the truck, is in great original condition aside from a few liberties taken by a previous owner. Someone started to convert the original blue interior to black, and almost finished it, but stopped part way through. For this reason, the rear seat is blue and so are a few other items, but it is well on its way to having a nice black interior! All original items are showing some age, but are in good overall condition for regular use. Whatever you prefer, either the light blue or black interior would be a great match to the dark blue exterior! If youre looking for a time machine back to the early 1990s, this just might be your ride! Equipped with power windows, air conditioning, and nice offroad tires this Blazer is a classic country Cadillac. Under the hood is a fuel injected 5.7 liter Chevrolet V8 (AKA Chevy 350). While this truck isnt fast, it isnt meant to be. It fires right up, runs, drives, and otherwise performs as expected for an old 4x4 SUV. For a multi-use vehicle, this Blazer would be a perfect vehicle for anything from daily use to light off-roading. The engine runs great and feels strong. Hooked up to a 700R4 automatic transmission, this truck would be a great daily driver or around town errand runner. Tired of losing your car in the employee parking lot at work? That wont be a problem on the days you drive this Blazer! Though the introduction of the GMT400 marked the impending end of the square body in 1988, the tail end of these trucks were quite possibly the heyday of these wonderful vehicles. Unmolested, un-modified, un-trashed examples like this are getting harder and harder to find! This truck wont last long! If youre after a good quality, light use 4x4 SUV this just might be the vehicle for you!
