1975 Dodge Monaco "Hazzard County Sheriff"
Posted by Retro Joe on Saturday, November 12, 2016 7:17 PM

Been awhile since I did a "Dukes" model, but this was just a quick transformation using the new GreenLight Collectibles diecast. I have wished for this body style in 1:24 or 1:25 for years, so I was excited to pick up some of these last week (Bluesmobile and Chicago PD), and actually found them at my local Meijer store!

Started with these. The Bluesmobile will become a CHP cruiser soon. Don't worry, I have another one of each that I am keeping mint-in-box.

Trying on the proper lightbar. Had an extra from David Panek Hobbies from 15 years ago or so:

Bare Metal Foil on the door handles & made license plates...complete!

I wasn't aware that these Monacos were "muscle cars."

Find a perfect category for it and I'll move it. Or I will just not share altogether. Your choice.

I wasn't aware that these Monacos were "muscle cars."

"It's got a cop motor, a 440 cubic inch plant, it's got cop tires, cop suspensions, cop shocks. It's a model made before catalytic converters so it'll run good on regular gas."

Thanks very much Joe for sharing the photos of your conversion- it's inspiring me to work some more on my Greenlight Monacos.

Hi i'm in Chicago i'm a retired cop the CPD units in the city had and have all blue lights but at the Airports Midway and O'Hare thats were i was at all the CPD units marked and unmarked have Red and Blue because of the FAA rule for airfield lighting you can keep the Chicago car with the red and blue the only other deferent's you have to put a small red number on the gas tank door that would read something like AV265 that shows the unit comes under Aviation money.!!! as og last year even the Chicago Fire Dept is starting to use blue lights mixed with the red and clear in the city now.!
