Here's the police package Bluesmobile Huey sold 3 years ago. Definitely one of the nicest ones we ever saw for sale. I believe it sold for $10,100. I'd have to double check that but I know it went over $10,000.
I will try and clear up some confusion about this CHP. She was found in a salvage yard in Southern CA about 18 years ago and brought to Tampa FL where it sat for a few more years until it was purchased by Rick Shields of Titusville, FL. The wiring harness was shot, so I sent him one from a donor 74 and at that time he changed the Alt to a reg one. I tried to buy this car for several years before he actually sold it to me. I finally got it in 2006.
The seats that were in it were from a 75 Police package from OH, the original seats were long gone by the time I got it. That is why they are just plain seats and not like the CHP that had a combo of cloth and heavy vy.
She was a real CHP unit that I traced back to the 29 Palms area of CA.
Also the rad was not correct, and I am sure there were other items not correct. I never intended to sell it or restore it to CHP specs, so I didn't care about any of the little details like that. But as you know life gives us twist and turns and sometimes you have to let go of things! So it was with a heavy heart that I had to let her go.
She sold for 10,700.00 in Oct of 2008 and went to the Netherlands as you well know. Luuk has done an excellent job on her!
This was not my only CHP Monaco but for some reason my favorite!
But anyway I hope I have helped out in explaining a few things about this car. I know you are a very detailed person and will appreciate more info.
Take care my friends,
For those of you that have asked I am in Austin, Texas now. The FL Bluesmobile Ranch is gone!
The poster of the video keeps insisting that this car is/was connected to the original film production. Several times I've posted a comment explaining the who, what, where and how about this in fact being a R.Shields replica.
The funny thing is, for some "mysterious" reason, my comments keep disappearing. My user name there is "TK826mwg".
Count the days before my latest comments are deleted. You'll probably only need one hand
