The first Guide (AMc-83) was launched 20 September 1941 by the Camden Shipbuilding & Marine Railway Co., Camden, Maine; sponsored by Mrs. Cary Bok, Jr.; and commissioned 17 March 1942, Lt. (j.g.) Alvin Hero in command.

Guide trained from the Mine Warfare School at Yorktown, Va., until 17 April 1942 when she sailed to alternately sweep the main shipping channels leading out of Key West, New Orleans, and Mobile, Ala. She periodically made brief visits to Pensacola for special sweeping duties. Her homeport changed from Mobile to Naval Station, Burrwood, La., in July 1944. She continued sweeping the approaches to New Orleans and Mobile until July 1945. She then served the Mine Countermeasures Station at Panama City, Fla., for the remainder of her career.

Guide was placed out of service 12 June 1946 and her name was struck from the Navy List 3 July. She was sold to a private purchaser 11 April 1947.

Chrysler 8 3/4” Axle Guide Updated 2015

The following conglomeration of information should help a person be able to locate, identify, and install an 8 3/4” Chrysler rear axle in their AMC product. Many topics are covered, and the text is compiled into one long document in order to speed locating the information you need. The topics covered are as follows:

Appendix B: How to Put One in a Javelin (or other AMC)

The Chrysler 8-3/4" rear axle assembly was introduced in 1957. It is a banjo-type (Hotchkiss) axle, ie. the differential is contained in a removable carrier assembly which is extracted from the axle housing toward the front of the car. It is retained by 10 nuts on studs in the housing. The differential “cover” (although permanent) as viewed from the back of the car is smooth and hemispherical it is welded onto the main housing. The axle tubes are part of the overall housing. The axle has an 8-3/4" diameter ring gear. There are three basic types available distinguished by their drive pinion stem diameter. The 8-3/4" axle was the primary axle assembly used in most Chrysler car lines through 1972.

Where To Find One

The first thing one needs to know in order to find the right axle for the job is the Chrysler platform code system. With an understanding of the different vehicles involved, you can then determine which one will best suit your application.

A-body models include:
1964-76 Plymouth Valiant, 1964-69 Plymouth Barracuda, 1970-76 Plymouth Duster, 1972-76 Plymouth Scamp, 1964-76 Dodge Dart, 1971-72 Dodge Demon, 1973-76 Dodge Dart Sport, 1969-76 Dodge Dart Swinger

B-body models include:
1965-70 Plymouth Belvedere, 1965-74 Plymouth Satellite, 1968-74 Plymouth Road Runner, 1970 Plymouth Superbird, 1967-71 Plymouth GTX, 1965-74 Dodge Coronet, 1968-71 Dodge SuperBee, 1966-74 Dodge Charger, 1969 Dodge Charger Daytona

C-body models include:
All 1965-74 full-size Chrysler models (Newport, New Yorker, Imperial), 1965-74 full size Dodge and Plymouth models (Polara, Monaco, Fury, Sport Fury, etc.)

E-body models:
1970-1974 Plymouth Barracuda and 1970-1974 Dodge Challenger

Axles and Housings

Because the 8-3/4" axle was available in most body lines, there are a variety of housings available. Following are SOME of the passenger car axle dimensions and notations. The 'Perches' dimension is the distance center to center between the spring mount perches. Dimensions are in inches.

Body line Track Perches Notes
------------- ---------- ----------- -----------------------
A-body, 65-72 55.6 43.0 4" lug bolt circle,
offered in heavy duty apps.
B-body, 62-70 59.2 44.0
B-body, 71-72 62.0 47.3
B-body, 71-72 63.4 47.3 station wagon
C-body, 64-72 63.4 47.3
D-body, 64-72 63.4 47.3
E-body, 70-74 60.7 46.0

The 8-3/4 was also available in the 58-74 D100/W100 trucks (and variants), the 64-70 A-100 trucks and vans, the 67-70 A-108 trucks and vans, the 71-74 B100/B200 vans and non-listed 57-64 full and mid-size car models.

Notes:
1) The axle centerline to yoke/universal centerline is 12.35" for the 8-3/4" axle.
2) Any 8-3/4" center section may be interchanged for another as an entire assembly.
3) All 8-3/4" axle shafts, 65-74, are retained by a bolt-on flange. Axles can be
interchanged within housings of the same width. The passenger side axle has a
threaded adjuster to set axle shaft end play.
4) There was a slight dimensional change in axle shaft length when the Sure Grip design
changed. If interchanging axles with the slight difference, the threaded end play
adjustment can be used to accomodate it.
5) The 57-64 8-3/4 axle driveshafts were tapered and used a keyway and locknut to retain
the brake assemblies and end play was set with shims. The 65 and later units use
flanged axle shafts and a threaded adjuster to set axle end play.
6) See Appendix A for information about the A-body 8-3/4" axle and bolt circle changes.

Center Section Types

The 8-3/4" axle was available in three basic types. The types are differentiated by the pinion stem diameter. 1-3/8", 1-3/4", 1-7/8". The choice of axle pinion assembly was determined based on the application. Differential bearing setting (ie. backlash ) is set with threaded adjusters on all carriers. All 8-3/4" carrier assemblies can be identified externally by the casting numbers.

1-3/8" small stem pinion (aka. '741')
Carrier casting numbers: 1820657 (1957-1964), 2070741 (1964-1972).
This assembly was typically used in low weight/low horsepower applications through low weight/medium horsepower and high weight/low horsepower applications.
Pinion depth and bearing preload is set with shims.

1-3/4" large stem pinion (aka. '742')
Carrier casting numbers: 1634985 (1957-1964), 2070742 (

1961-1969).
This assembly was replaced by a phase-in of the 1-7/8" pinion starting in the 1969 model year. 1970 RW (Plymouth and Dodge mid-size) were the last models to use the 1-3/4" which appeared in a 2881489 case. This assembly was typically used in high weight/medium horsepower applications through high weight/high horsepower applications.
Pinion depth and bearing preload is set with shims.

1-7/8" tapered stem pinion (aka. '489')
Carrier casting numbers: 2881488, 2881489 (1969-1974).
This assembly was introduced in 1969 and was phased-in to relace the 1-3/4" unit through 1970. Note: the 1-3/4" pinion also appeared in some '489' carriers during this period. By 1973, the '489' was the only unit available in passenger car applications. This assembly was typically used in high weight/medium horsepower applications through high weight/high horsepower applications.
Pinion depth is set with shims, preload is set with a crush sleeve.

The '741' commonly has a large X cast on the left side, the '742' may have a large 2 cast on the left side, and the '489' has a large 9 cast on the left side. Through 1965, the factory ratio was stamped on the identification boss, followed by an 'S' if Sure Grip equipped. After 1965, a tag was affixed under one of the carrier mounting nuts to identify the ratio. If Sure Grip equipped, an additional Sure Grip lube tag was sometimes affixed later years sometimes had the filler plug painted orange.

Gear ratios available on the 8-3/4" axle through the years include: 2.76, 2.93, 3.23, 3.31, 3.55, 3.73, 3.91, 4.10, 4.56, 4.89, 5.17, 5.57. On OEM gear sets, the ratio is usually stamped on the ring gear edge. Ratio may be determined by the number of teeth on the ring gear divided by the number of teeth on the pinion gear or by counting the ratio of the number of turns of the pinion relative to one turn of the axle shaft.

The 8-3/4" center section is removed from the front of the housing. To remove the center section, remove the wheels, brake drums, and drive shaft (note: pre- 65 units have a pressed-on brake hub. requires a puller for removal). Remove the axle shafts, 5 bolts on the backing plate flange on post 64 units, use puller for pressed-in pre-65 units. Remove the 10 nuts on the housing studs around the carrier perimeter. Remove the carrier. may require prying, fluid will drain when carrier gasket seal is broken.

Sure Grip is the Chrysler name for a limited slip differential. It was optional on the 8-3/4" axles, 1958-1974. Two styles were used.

1958-1969 used the Dana Power-Lok (# 2881487). This unit utilized clutches for the differential locking action. The Power-Lok can be rebuilt using kit # 2070845 ( Mopar Performance [MP] # P4529484 ). In this assembly, axle driveshaft end thrust is taken by the thrust block assembly (replacement # 2881313). This Sure Grip appeared in the '741' and '742' assemblies. The axle bearings are: 25590 (Timken cone), and 25520 (Timken cup), (Chrysler numbers 1790523 and 696403). The Dana Power-Lok can be recognized by its bolt-together assembly, bolts around the side opposite the ring gear, and multiple openings exposing the cross shafts.

1969-1974 used the Borg Warner Spin Resistant (# 2881343). This unit utilized a spring-preloaded cone friction arrangement for the locking action. Axle end thrust is taken by the cross shaft. This Sure Grip appeared in '489' assemblies and 70 and later '741'/'742' assemblies. The differential axle bearings are: LM 104912 (Timken cone), and LM 104949 (Timken cup), (Chrysler numbers 2852729 and 2852728). The Borg Warner Spin Resistant unit can be recognized by its lack of bolts on the side opposite the ring gear (like the Dana), and two openings exposing the preload springs. Borg Warner sold this design to Auburn Gear who currently offers the replacement Sure Grip assemblies.

Non-Sure Grip differentials can be identified by the large openings in the differential exposing the differential (aka. spider) gears. There are no springs or clutches.

Interchange Notes:
The two Sure Grip types can be interchanged between the carriers if the matching differential axle bearings are retained. The outside diameter of the cups are the same between the '741'/'742' and the '489' the inner cone differs. The Sure Grip differential can be used as a direct replacement for the non-Sure Grip within the carrier/bearing limits previously noted.

Universal Joint Yokes

The 8-3/4" axle was offered with two size cross & roller style universal joint. These are referred to as the '7260' (2-1/8" yoke ID) and the '7290' (2-5/8" yoke ID). Most Imperials and some C-bodies used a different univer- sal joint. The '1330' type joint was used on Imperials and others with a constant velocity joint. The '1330' uses outside snap rings instead of the inside snap rings used by the '7269' and '7290'. The cap diameter for the '7260' is 1.078". The cap diameter for the '7290' is 1.126". The '1330' style joint cap diameter is 1.063".

There are four different yokes that have been used with the 8-3/4" axle for the '7260' and '7290' style universal joints. The '741'/'742' assemblies used a coarse spline (10 splines) drive pinion. Most of the aftermarket gears also use this coarse spline yoke mount. There is a small yoke for the '7260' and a larger one for the '7290'. The '489' assembly used a fine spline (29 splines) yoke. Note: during the phase-in period of 69-71 for the '489' unit, there were several permutations of pinion size and yoke availability. 69-70 '489' units may be equipped with a coarse (10) spline pinion, particularly for the '7290'. There are two yokes for the '7260' and '7290' universal joints with fine (29) splines. Two additional yokes were used for the '1330' style universal joint in constant velocity applications, one for 10 splines and one for 29 splines.

Interchange Notes:
7260, 7290, 1330 yokes may be interchanged if the spline count is the same.
Note: the 9-1/4" axle (73-up) uses the same fine spline yokes as the 8-3/4" fine spline units (29 splines).

Strength Considerations

Pinions
The 1-3/8" '741' pinion is the weakest. It is still a capable unit in most moderate power, moderate traction street applications. For high torque applications with high traction tires, the 1-3/4" or 1-7/8" should be considered.
The 1-7/8" '489' is supposedly the strongest. Although the stem tapers down along it's length, it appears inherently stronger from a pinion stem perspective and the inherent strength of the fine splines (OEM gears).
The 1-3/4" '742' has a larger rear pinion bearing yielding greater strength in this area. The 1-3/4" shares yoke mount diameter and mounting nut with the 1-3/8".
For perspective, the 7-1/4" has a 1-3/8" pinion, the 8-1/4 has a 1-5/8" pinion, the 9-1/4" (70s) has a 1-7/8" pinion.

Sure Grips
The Dana Power-Lok is inherently stronger and provides better, equal torque transmission to both axles. It's locking capability is also proportionate to the applied torque. The Borg Warner unit is weaker, but is a more versatile unit for practical street applications in inclement traction periods. The Dana unit is the better of the stock sure grips for racing applications and has clutch rebuild kits available. An updated cone-type sure grip unit is available from Auburn Gear with 30% increased torque carrying capacity over the old version. Lockers and spools are also available from various sources.

Service Parts Information

Most replacement parts for the 8-3/4" axle are still available. Some items not available are new Dana Power-Lok assemblies, most OEM gears, most carrier housings and complete differentials and housings. A revised version of the cone-type Sure Grips are available from Auburn Gear. The Power-Lok clutch kits are available from MP and other sources. Gear sets (typically performance oriented ratios) are available from MP and the aftermarket for the '489' and '742'. Bearings and seals are readily available.

Appendix A: 8-3/4 A-body axle upgrade to 4.5" bolt circle

The 65-72 A-bodies were available with the 8-3/4" axle. This was standard on all 340 equipped cars. It was also included in heavy duty packages such as 318 with manual transmission and towing options. It was often included in post 65 273 high performance manual applications.

The bolt circle (BC) on these vehicles was 4". All other Chrysler vehicles (except some Imperials and trucks) of this era were equipped with a 4.5" BC. It is commonly desired by A-body owners to change to the 4.5" BC when upgrading to later style disk brakes or to expand wheel choice.

A-body 8-3/4" axle shaft swap:
There are several methods to accomplish this. Custom axles such as Strange, Summers, Moser, etc. can be specified with the larger lug pattern for the A-body housing. Longer axles from a larger vehicle may be cut and resplined to fit the shorter A-body axle. Donors for this operation are C-bodies, D-bodies, trucks and vans with the 8-3/4" axle and 4.5" BC. Moser Engineering can perform the cut and respline operation. When selecting a donor axle shaft, look for one that does not taper along its length. Note: A-body 8-3/4" axles were equipped with 10x1-3/4" drum brakes. Replace these with 10x2-1/2" or 11-2-1/2" brakes and associated hardware from the donor vehicle or similar.

Appendix B: How to Put One in a Javelin (Or Other AMC)

AMC’s use a 43 1/2” perch to perch spacing for all models from 1964-78, and possibly even further. Narrow body cars (68-70 Javelin & AMX, Gremlin, Hornet, etc.) use a 57” track width, and wide body cars (71-74 Javelin, Rebel, Matador, etc.) use a 60” track width. Comparing these numbers to the table above, it would appear that all of our axle needs can be fulfilled with either A-body or B-body axles, depending on which AMC vehicle we own. The 1969 A-body axle that I installed in my 1969 Javelin measured 57 1/4” from drum face to drum face, although the listed track width is 55.6”.

The spring perches don’t need to be moved in order to install the axle. Most leaf springs will allow 1/4” of side movement to permit the installation easily. You can purchase new Mopar Performance spring perches from Jeg's for $11.69 a pair if you feel the need to relocate them.

You can use the stock AMC shocks, but you need the shock/spring mounting plates from the donor Mopar. Use the passenger side plate on your drivers side and vice versa (Chrysler mounts the shock on the outside of the leaf spring, AMC mounts it on the inside). Another mounting option is to use Lakewood's "Traction. Action" bars, which are a combination shock/spring mount and traction bar. Buy some u-bolts for a 69 Cuda and bolt the axle in.

The driveshaft and u-joint require no modification typically. Moroso makes a fine u-joint girdle set to replace the stock straps for about $22.

Brake lines will have to be modified to fit each application. On the rear end I used the distribution block was located on the drivers side. I relocated it to the passenger side and made new lines.

QOTD: Will Minivans and SUVs ever be Considered Collectible?

If you like achromatic 1 and 2-box vehicles, this is the automotive golden age. Take this picture I shot above the other day as proof. For the rest of us, well, that’s why sites like Curbside Classic exist.

Tastes change. A generation ago, no one would ever consider trucks and station wagons collectible. Now both are highly sought after, and regular attendees of car shows and concours alike.

The earliest examples of SUVs and minivans are now over 25 year old, old enough to qualify as antiques by the AACA. Yet I don’t expect to see one parked on the lawn of Hershey anytime soon. As proof, I offer the fact that there are currently just two vintage minivans for sale on Hemmings.

So who here is willing to look into their crystal ball, and go on record and guess when (or if) minivans and SUVs will be considered collectible?

108 Comments

I suspect some will. The Cherokee, for example, strikes me as a likely candidate. Likewise, the original K-Vans will probably carve out some sort of niche. However, I suspect the vast majority of minivans and SUVs will not be collectible. You’re always gonna see some clown trying to pawn off an old car as a classic, though. So in about 20 years or so, be prepared to see some ad bragging about a “classic” 2007 Saturn Relay.

A 2007 Saturn of any model MIGHT get some collecting “love​” eventually, Orphan cars have their own following.

Look no further than Studebakers. . .

When describing crazies, the expression was “more loose screws than a new Studebaker.”

Not to mention Edsel and DeSoto fans! If I were to get an early “jump” on this, I’d go with a first gen Mopar minivan, As a “two-fer”, Make mine a Plymouth Voyager!

More loose screws than a new Studebaker? I’ve never heard that before. This is my first “collectible”. As things age, people enjoy the novelty of seeing something that has been completely forgotten.

It MIGHT be argued that folks are collecting the earliest minivans already. VW got an early start with collectors, and some folks collect the Corvair vans and pickup trucks.
My guess is that minivans built AFTER the Previa and the 1st generation of Odyssey won’t ever be collected. There are too many, they look too much like each other, and don’t have any unique engineering features.

I did come close to “picking up” a swb, Caravan with a turbocharged engine recently….but I wasn’t quick enough.

While I completely agree, I would disagree on the plentiful supply. Because minivans get used until they are completely used up, survival rates are going to very low (just try finding an early quad-headlight Chrysler minivan).

That said, rare does not necessarily mean valuable.

Exactly. I suspect this will be very much like the collector market for 1950s and 1960s station wagons is now, eventually. There will only be a few that survived the daily use and it’ll be the pioneers in the field (Cherokee, first Voyagers and Caravans) that will be the most valuable.

Yeah, I’d go with the Cherokee jx, and the original Mopar minivans. But there is nothing unique in style or function in the YUUUUUGE (woops, sorry!) plethora of mundane look-alike suv’s, cuv’s, (cpa’s, cbc’s, cbs’s..whatever) out there by the zillions. The all look alike, they all do the same things, all have the same options. Can’t imagine a former soccer-mom (or dad) in say, 2047 pineing for that “way cool what-ever-it-was van thing we had back in 2017”

I mentioned it in my reply, the VW van image is bolstered by it’s instant association to a counterculture movement. If it were memorable for mommy loading up a dozen kids after soccer practice and changing the newborn’s diapers on the second row seat the interest wouldn’t be so high.

Having said that the drivetrain layouts and cab forward layouts are much more of a talking point. But 2 box Front engine/front drive and front engine/rear drive vans, probably no.

The original VW buses also represent an aesthetic of bygone days, more related to 30’s design ideas than even early postwar American cars like the postwar Ford for example. And a restored high end Platonic ideal one like this is worth a whole lot today as everyone probably already knows. It’s amazing that this was made in 1961. Probably the revised one with the wider tailgate and blank rear corners came after that.

That photo didn’t work. Here it is.

Once upon a time, 61 Chevies were common and unremarkable. Now many of us would consider even a good Biscayne with a 6 & stick to be a classic.

A 2 door perhaps, but a 4 door is still worth about as much as a fully depreciated Camry.

Collectible and Investment aren’t necessarily the same. To this day there are many low buck Model T Fords around. No one is going to retire on the money gained by “flipping” one. OTOH, Model Ts are still collectible​s.

No but being collectible and merely collecting something are vastly different things, anything can be and is collected. The cost of entry is a barometer of collectibility. Not everyone with an old Muscle Car is using it for their retirement fund believe it or not, some just want their dream car no matter what the cost is – which is how flippers make money.

OTOH, Some folks dream car may be different from the “hot market”, so they have​ the fortune of getting in to the hobby at a lower cost. There are million dollar collectible cars that have no interest to me, A 1948 Plymouth is more interesting to me than a Lambo, I’m weird, I know. But just like new car buyers, Old car lovers have different tastes. I hate those old car articles that recommend against buying a certain old car JUST because of it’s low expectation of return. If someone loves and desires a 61 Biscayne sedan with a 6, they should get one even though it’s not super valuable (in cash) and likely won’t ever be.

Keep in mind you’re talking to a guy who cherishes a 1994 Mercury Cougar, rest assured I’m about as far from hot market as it gets with such a car. But I don’t consider it collectible, the definition of that is an item valued and sought by collectors. and while an obscure car can certainly have a cult following, that doesn’t mean people actually seek them out with a cost is no object attitude.

I totally agree with your latter point, investors are not the same as collectors. As I said, money is no object to collectors, we just may not have enough of it to get the cars out of the hands of investors where money is the objective. The net effect is that drives us to cheaper cars that ALSO interest us that investors ignore(they only know how to exploit collectors, not dictate what’s collectable). Sometimes if that following grows enough, then the investors get savvy and suddenly your collector car “alternative” became a collector car.

The way I remember things, wagon versions of even popular cars did not gain acceptance until fairly recently. If minivans eventually take off, it will not be until those who grew up in the 90s get into their mid 40s and a nostalgia factor takes over. And by then, nice ones will be rare as can be.

As with wagons before them, old minivans will get worked to death as each trade takes them to an owner who works it harder than the last until something expensive fails (probably a transmission) and off to the scrap yard it goes. If they ever become collectible they will be rarities indeed.

The old Grand Wagoneer has a good thing going with restoration specialist getting big bucks for them. Mostly because not been replaced by anything the right size. The current Suburban class vehicles are too bloody big to be practical.

Not bloody likely that Minivans will enjoy such a resurgence. Family haulers lead hard lives… hardly see a restorer caring about an original Dodge Caravan.

Do you see many ancient Suburbans at car auctions?

I see a few. The big advantage old Suburbans have over newer ones is that they’re built to carry a cow. The only upholstery is the seats themselves, and carpeting? Is that the business you’re in? It’ll carry a bunch of rolls…

How about the Isuzu VehiCross from the late 90s? And I am already noticing a curiosity starting up over the Pontiac Aztek, it flopped like the Edsel and now Edsels are prized collectibles.

I could see those being collectible. Very striking design.

I don’t know about mini vans but probably first gen 4runners&landcruisers might be in high demand some day.

First gen 4Runners and Land Cruisers through FJ62 are already in high demand. As for minivans, it’s hard for someone of my age to think of any Dodge Dart or Falcon as collectible, but obviously they are. The same wil be true of minivans, some more than others.

Certain vehicles that represent either the 1st or last of a line or have some unusual technological breakthrough for the automaker might end up being collectible.

I can see someone saving an early 1st Gen Chrysler minivan (back when they were still called wagons) or say a “dust buster” GM van which had space frame and plastic panels or a “KING DOOR” Windstar because of what an odd solution it was to the “How do we exit both sides of the van” or even an end of production GM U-body because it really repented GM throwing up its hands and say “eff it we can’t compete in this segment.”

The first GM plastivans are now 26 years old. I think in 20 more years when there are virtually none left a really nice restored Pontiac Trans Sport will be a collector car because of its unique future predicting shape and unique construction. It’s the only minivan of that time that has any potential. I can see people gathering around to see something they didn’t know about.

I can imagine the dust buster vans becoming hot Hollywood props for science fiction movies someday. Long after they disappear from the streets, to a younger generation who had no memory of them they’d still look futuristic, like a Citroën DS would be viewed today.

Did you mean this?
Taxi from Back to the Future 2, set in 2015

My memory is fuzzy but I think they used dustbusters in Predator 2 as LAPD police cars in future gang overrun Los Angeles.

Minivans, no. The trucks that are collectible tend to be standard cab short beds(i.e. The impractical ones) and collectible wagons tend to be obscure or exotic shooting brakes. I guess it depends on your emphasis of “highly”, but old country squires are still pretty low value, they may be more desirable than their sedan equivelant, but marginally at best. Plus don’t forget vintage vans are very low value, with exception of the VW bus – which is rooted n counterculture, not soccer practice

Speaking as someone whose grew up in the peak minivan era, I have no nostalgic feelings for it, they took forever for heat to circulate to the back, they accomidated filthy disgusting children and pets, and were miserable to drive when learning.

> vintage vans are very low value, with exception of the VW bus – which is rooted n counterculture, not soccer practice

That’s how people think of old VW vans *today*. But that’s not how they were thought of when they were new. VW didn’t target bohemian hippies with their little van rather, they marketed the microbus the same way minivans are marketed today – as practical family vehicles. Advertisements for the VW bus look alot like today’s minivan ads – they’re sold as kid-haulers. Take a look at this advert from the 󈧶s:

Some SUVs are already collectable, just look at the early FJs and Land Rovers for pricing proof. I see the Willys Jeepster as a possibility, along with the war-era jeeps being a collector item. However, the mainstream “crossover” SUVs will probably never really be a collector vehicle, nor will minivans. Too many, too common, and other than appeal to nostalgia, they will just be used cars well into the future. In 50 years, do you see anyone clamoring over a 1985 Plymouth Voyager or a 2002 Hyundai Santa Fe? Neither are bad (I owned and loved my Santa Fe) but they will never elicit collector lust.

Early Dodge Caravan and Plymouth Voyager started to be collectible these days, and few nice examples show up once a while

I think at some point, everything becomes a collectible to the right group of people. Are they ever going to command 6 figure price tags like some of the muscle cars from the 60s/70s…. probably not. Is that what defines collectible, stratospheric price tags 40 years in the future?

Take station wagons for example. Just a couple of decades ago, right as minivans were riding high in popularity, station wagons were not collectible at all. They were so out of fashion that no one wanted to be seen in them at all. I bucked the trend and drove my 77 Aspen for several years. I’ve always loved wagons. Now you are starting to see more and more of them being cared for and collected. Mid 80s B-body wagons, the Whale Caprice wagons, Volvo wagons from the 80s/90s…. I would say that they are starting to reach some level of collectibility.

Not too long ago, I attended the Long Beach Classic Japanese Car show. (I believe the cutoff year was 1990). I saw cars there, in really good condition, in all states of stock to modified. Had you asked the same question about collectibility of Japanese cars in the 80s, you would probably get a very similar answer then as you would today regarding Minivans and SUVs. (BTW, if you want to see my gallery of all these wonderful japanese cars, check out: http://www.michaelbrianstudios.com/Automotive/Car-Shows/2016-Japanese-Classic-Car-Show/)

It comes down to nostalgia, what you grew up with, and what you fondly remember as to what ultimately becomes “collectible” to a particular group of people. 1st Gen Chrysler minivans (turbo, 5-speed) will have a bit of collectibility. SUVs that were the first honest SUVS (XJ cherokees, Bronco IIs, 1st gen Explorers). And similar to the many curbside classics that we feature here…. used to be a dime a dozen, now you don’t see them at all anymore.

Yes, for the right group, they will be somewhat collectible.

Collectible doesn’t have to mean pricey. All collectible means is that some ppl want one of something. There’s oodles of collectible cars today that aren’t worth much. MGB for example. As for minivans… I dont think they will. Perhaps the first dodge caravan BC it was the pioneer… But u can’t see someone compelled to seek an old minivan out.

First and second generation Chevy Blazers and Ford Broncos for sure. Grand Wagoneers and Ramchargers too. Probably not any of the newer car like suvs. I already see first gen Caravans and Astros being fixed up and lightly customized.

In my opinion, if it is old and in good and running condition, patina’d or not, and it played an important part in memorable moments of people’s lives, it could very well be objects of affection to future CC’ers.

I was very fond of the 1959-1966 Studebaker Larks, especially the VIIIs and all forms of the Lark convertible, but I never thought anyone would find them collectible. Now they do seem to be popular if and when they can be found in good and running condition. And it can be also the same for early 1960 Ramblers.

My old 1960 Comet was a cheap car that I bought quickly when in need of a vehicle and it seemed to be very basic transportation with few frills and even fewer comforts. However, when I did a COAL on it last year, I was surprised to see that the early Comets are considered desirable.

Many considered these types of cars as expendable, so they are usually hard to find now. Probably the same will apply someday to Minivans and SUVs (as noted in other comments above).

It seems that anything that rings a fond memory bell for some people, and is hard to find, could become a collectible.

Exactly Fond memories will be the key.

Perhaps the 1989-1990 Caravan ES Turbo with a five-speed might be collectible one day.

A turbo/manual shortie Mopar van would be the ultimate sleeper. Ive seen a few of them hotrodded before.

Older SUVs [60-80s] are definitely coming up the ranks! Same for 60-80s vans
The new Demon powered Jeep Trailhawk might be so in a few years. I think people are starting to wake up to the recent Trailblazer SS. Plebian, everyday, 100,000+ unit Vans and SUVs, no def not!

Trailblazer SS – good call!! Also Saab 9-7. Isuzu Ascender? I dunno ….

If enough people remember them fondly, they will be collected outside of the aficianados of the body style. I’m enjoying my time with my van and have more than once considered looking around for a 1990 Town & Country. I really wanted one back in the day.

However, these are the kinds of cars I call rolling biohazards they get ridden hard and put away wet. Only grandma’s van will survive but it will be worth some serious cash when it sells.

Jay Leno stated that he see’s a day when a clean Pontiac Aztek will be a collectible. It definitely pushed the envelope on the design. Especially one complete with the tent ⛺️ option. For today’s models I like the X-box or whatever the proper name is and the Cube. Those little Hamster Vans.

Leno’s right about the Aztek. It’s the Chrysler Airflow of its time.

The Smithsonian American History museum collected one for its place in American cultural history. Of course they found a nice one with a family history attached.

I can’t help but smile at the sight of a minivan on display at the Smithsonian. My parents bought a first-year (1984) Plymouth Voyager – trading in a Buick Century wagon in the process – and I still remember the debate about whether to buy it. Dad was very impressed by the design’s space efficiency, and that won him over.

Despite the frumpy reputation that minivans soon established, for the first few months, that Voyager attracted lots of attention. People often asked to look inside. For that matter, the tinted windows were actually a novelty — some people were surprised that you could see out of them.

Fast forward a few decades, and now I have a minivan of my own. Even though the minivan market is shrinking, it’s still the best vehicle for our family’s needs (i.e., long trips with kids, and on a budget that puts SUVs out of contention).

Getting to the original question — yes, I think minivans will be collectible someday. Like others have said, they will be rare, but rarity creates collectability.

Well it depends on what you classify as an SUV. Jeep CJ and Wranglers are going to continue to have a following. Same with the 1984-2001 Cherokee. I would also thing that the fullsize Cherokee of the 1970’s and the Wagoneer will also be collectable.

Fullsize Blazers and Broncos are collectable now. I think the first generation S series Jimmy and Blazer will be collectable too.

On the Japanese side, first generation 4Runners are collectable already.

As for mini vans, I think some special editions will be collectable, such as the Dodge Caravan ES with the turbo engine and manual transmission and perhaps Eugene’s official vehicle the Toyota Van . but on the whole the mini van most likely will not be collectable.

Long before the term Sport Utility Vehicle came into existence, we had SUV trucks. The International Travelall was one such vehicle. I owned a 1965 and then a 1968. They were heavy iron with some flaws, particularly as IH did not do much to update the vehicles. In 1969 IH introduced a new Travelall with more insulaiton and front disc brakes (WHEW – that helped a lot and I mean it.) Are these collectible? I think so. Depicted is a Traveall from the early 1950’s and a 1968 Travelall. Travelalls were made starting in the 1930’s.

I guess that I cannot post two pictures. Here is the early 1950’s Travelall.

Sorry to take a bleak view, but I’d say that minivans and SUVs won’t be collectible, nor will virtually all the cars made today either. I say this for 2 reasons:

1) Increasingly complex electronic systems and engine control “computers” that will be hard/impossible to fix when things go wrong, nor will it be easy (or ultimately even possible) to find replacement parts (try keeping an outdated computer going–same problem). The electronics will make most modern vehicles just as disposable as an old mobile phone or laptop.
2) Due to this unavoidable and unrepairable obsolescence, I think vehicles will simply be junked when they go on the fritz, no matter how nice they were when they were new. Once the supplies of OEM parts are exhausted, maintaining survivors will get harder and harder without an abundant selection of decent parts cars. So the vicious cycle kicks in with more and more vehicles being scrapped for electronics issues even if the mechanical and body parts are serviceable.

Since it will be relatively challenging to keep a post mid-1980s “computerized classic” on the road, only the best/most desirable cars will be preserved. Mom and Dad’s family hauler likely wouldn’t make the cut, no matter how great the memories were…

I’m afraid you may be right.

To counterpoint. I remember all the hand wringing about Fuel Injection and Computer controls in the 80’s.

This issue is already being largely resolved on 80s cars with a combination of 3D printing, aftermarket engine computers and software that allows common generic computer hardware to emulate the original ECUs.

Computers are often cited as an obsolescence issue, but I think A. people are falsely equating their experiences with laptops and phones to them, and B. overestimating the complexity of the average automobile computer. There’s not much to them and not much to fail. There are no viruses or malware and the few, if any, software updates you get don’t come with a bunch of unnecessary bloatware. They have just enough hardware to drive however many fuel injectors and however many coils in a pattern, based on and altered from inputs from a handful of simple sensors, and the software simply changes timing and time of the outputs based on the sensor information. They’re much more Casio calculator than personal computer, but with much more robust internal components.

I don’t disagree overall though, but it’s for different reasons. The planned obsolescence is on a much more substantive level today than it was in the 50s and 60s, where a simple restyling of the basically unchanged body meant you weren’t keeping up with the Jones. Cars could deteriorate fast back then, but there was never a point of too far gone, with the exception of tin worm, cars were as simple as hammers and could be made drivable for generations – Cuba is proof of that – modern cars aren’t adaptable, everything thing is made with tight tolerances and fit in tight spaces to max efficiency – there’s no shoehorning in some eastern bloc diesel into a transverse FWD Fusion in other words – and with safety and emissions being at the forefront of people’s thoughts more than ever they have a substantial case to turn late model cars into throwaways, and without styling to save them for nostalgia sake (all cars look the same) nobody is going to fondly remember when only the front curtain airbags were standard or the hybrid system that gets MPG an efficient future gas only engine can nearly match(or if/when all electric dominates).

But as far as computerized classics, I have an mid 90s computerized classic, and will tell you that the hardest part about keeping it on the road is all the same stuff that you have to deal with on mid 80s and older classics, EXCEPT not dealing with a carb. Vintage computer works perfect.

I think it is the multiplication effect of sensors and electronic control units throughout the vehicle. Think of airbag sensors and climate control sensors just to name a few major ones–when those fail, and owners are presented with expensive repair tabs on an old car running right, many will just let it go.

I remember reading an article in Bimmer Magazine a few years back on the E32 7 Series, which was launched in 1987. The authors made the point that these cars were so complicated/sophisticated with all the ECUs and sensors, that the E32 initiated the generations of BMW that would start to be “un” collectible since they were too difficult and expensive to maintain. Part of the article included a search on used examples, and the authors noted that the E32 seemed to be virtually nonexistent as used cars. It wasn’t the lack of desirability for the E32–the car had been highly praised and well received–it was that owners, even original buyers, would tire of the cost and hassle of keeping the cars on the road. Now that technology has crept down from flagship cars into the most mundane vehicles–which now offer features and complexity unimaginable on an E32–I think the problem will become ever more widespread.

Ford rags expressed the same fears with the Mustang when it got fuel injection, but it turned out to be the best thing that ever happened to it, with tons of aftermarket support and wide parts availability. The thing with EFI is that the sensors and actuators have quite a wide and long term cross reference, there are some sensors being used on 2017 Fords that I can plug straight into my 1994 Mercury and it will work exactly the same, even others would only require a software flash for my computer, which the aftermarket even provides software for DIY.

Maybe that’s not the case with BMW but computers have been anything but a hinderance to automobile longevity since the late 80s, so if BMWs have a problem with it it’s their engineering to blame.

The worst part about electronics is that they can become functionally obsolete. I have 10 year old computers that work just fine, but their operating systems lose support, same thing happens with phones. Then sometimes an interface changes or revolutionizes and you can’t connect anything to it. This can and has happened with cars – early navigation systems of the 00s are about as quaint now as cars with antique cars with turn tables – but this is an electronic accessory/gimmick problem. Functionally as cars, the old navigation stereo without fresh update CDs are still perfectly operating cars as far as engine management is concerned.

I don’t agree xr7… I do agree that electronics have made cars much better…. But long term collectibility will certainly suffer. Also I think the comparison of BMW vs mustang wizardry wrong. A mustang from 1997 has nowhere near the complexity of the BMW 7 series. They are worlds apart. What made the BMW great then is making them obsolete today. Ironically I remembercthe 85 mustang gt beingvworth more $ than the 86 gt simply BC the 85 had a carburetor. Despite exactly the same appearance. However… Even today the 86 EEC 4 FI is easily worked on. Its simple.

I’m talking strictly from a engine management perspective. What Ford used wasn’t much different than anyone else did. As far as luxury accessories, I’m sure they are more troublesome, and I think I’m not arguing the potential nightmares modern cars who’ve since adopted them going on the fritz either.

The 85s are worth more because they dropped power in 86, 210 85 to 200 in 86. You see the same effect with Muscle cars in 1972 – not all dropped compression, backed off timing, or sprouted smog devices from their 1971 predecessors, all that changed was the rating system, and they’re ALL worth less than the 71s. Fast forward and 87 Mustangs got a power bump to 225 and all was well again, and once Mustang switched to Mass air for airflow modeling all the aftermarket tuning angst evaporated, and the values of these cars reflect it, in fact 87-93 5.0s seem to be more valuable than the 79-85s with carbs or CFI.

But most collectors aren’t going to want cars with non-functioning center stacks, for starters…

It’s not just the basic engine management ECU, those can be relatively simple–when the Mustang belatedly got fuel injection in 󈨚, it was hardly rocket science. The potential trouble spots are the more sophisticated technology applications, with their network of dozens of computer modules, plus the associated sensors, switches, actuators, gateways, bus-systems, etc. that are found in the typical modern car, including all late model Fords. The E32 BMW was a pioneer in that regard–it was brilliantly engineering as a modern electronic marvel circa 1987, but became an expensive money pit as it aged. Hence the reason that they are now virtually impossible to find in working order, if at all.

For new cars, when the systems are new and operating as designed for that point in time, modern electronics can be fantastic. As they age, wear out and/or become obsolete, not so much. Hard core collectors may be willing to devote the time to sort through the issues, find workarounds, and pay for potentially expensive fixes. But shade-tree mechanics/casual collectors likely won’t be bothered…

Probably because the electronic hobbyists who are into poking around circuit boards with logic analyzers are largely a completely different crowd than the car guys. That will have to change if the old car hobby is to survive.

Also, I’ve heard rumors that BMW etc have buy-back programs to prevent those high-end cars from becoming ghetto-sleds. But even a modern Mustang is in many ways more electrical than mechanical.

Use as an example the Aston Martin Lagonda with Lucas electronics, particularly an early digital dash. They fail, regularly, and the cost to repair or replace usually renders the otherwise valuable and collectable car practically worthless.What should have been a truly collectable car, albeit one with polarizing styling, has been largely ignored, if not forgotten. You can find one that works, and someone will pay a reasonably large sum to purchase, but one that does not work will never see the cost of restoration recouped. That makes it a labor of love for those who desire it, and that is a very small number of people. So, collectable? Not really. It is more a prized possession of someone who cherishes it, and few clamor to have one like it.

I have to wonder though….as time goes on, and technology improves will it be possible to upgrade or eliminate the faulty electronic junk? Kind of how the first decade or so of emissions controls were nothing but glitch hp robbing garbage. Now that we know how to hack this stuff (and since theres no or reduced inspection for older cars) it can be modified, upgraded or removed entirely.

I suppose I better eat my words: Taking myself & doggie for our daily mile or two walk, I came across this!

Unknown year Ford Fairmont with Ohio historical vehicle plates. It was a beauty, too.

Only original Chrysler Town & Countrys with all Di-Noc intact!

Also, Chevy SS TrailBlazers, most definitely.

Lots of SUV’s will be. I think the BOF mid size models, that are no longer built are starting to get street cred. Like BOF Explorers, GM’s Trail Blazer family, and 1st gen Dodge Durangos. One other example is Olds Bravadas, they have a cult following.

Hmmm, makes me wonder what my one owner (me) 1987 Chevy Astro is worth…

I can see Astros becoming collectible because they are mechanically simple and old enough to be modifiable. There are instructions out there on how to replace your 4.3 V6 with a 350 sbc.

AWD Astros are in high demand from the “expedition camper” crowd. Though not quite as pricey … yet … as Vanagon Syncros.

Because they represent the mundane,and boring things of life, I doubt that minivans will ever be collectible. Nothing here to excite the car enthusiast, but they do represent an aspect of pre- SUV American motoring. The vehicles that were associated with suburbia, soccer moms, juice boxes, trips to Costco, Sam`s club, the mall, or crowding the family in one to go visit grandma or pickup the kids from school. SUVs? Probably. Indications point to early Escalades and Navigators,or other high end types.

The Cherokee (XJ) would be my vote for “collectible”.

1) It generated plenty of cash for AMC (󈨗) and Chrysler (󈨛)
2) proved that a unibody SUV was viable
3) reinforced the legitimacy of having a SUV in your suburban driveway

A 󈨥 thru 󈧅 version would be most desirable. However, most Cherokees have very high mileage or rusted away and a good example will be difficult to find.

The 1993 Grand Wagoneer (Grand Cherokee with wood paneling) and 1st generation Chrysler Minivans might be collectable someday. The 1990 Town & Country sure is rare. The Pre-Sienna Toyota Vans seem to have a cult following.

Understanding Propeller Basics for selecting the correct Outboard & Sterndrive Boat Propeller

The goal in propeller selection is to determine what style and size will maximize your boat's performance, while allowing your engine to operate within the recommended RPM range. The correctly sized propeller will prevent the engine from over-revving, yet allow it to reach the minimum suggested RPM. This will result in the engine producing maximum horsepower, but not being overloaded which can compromise engine longevity. Read on for our prop selection criteria to help you find the perfect propeller for your outboard motor.

Boat Propeller Types

Selecting the right propeller type for a boat is crucial to realizing the best overall performance the vessel is capable of. When selecting the right prop propeller type there are several options to choose from, all with key design elements that will influence particular performance characteristics. At a high level most propellers fall into two categories, recreational or commercial. Commercial propellers come in all shapes and sizes and are often tailored to the specific needs of the vessel&rsquos intended use. Material type, propeller blade number, blade thickness and area, are just some of the prop design parameters that. Read More

Wake-Adapted Propellers, Struts, and Rudders

Here at Michigan Wheel, we often hear the question, how can I make my boat go faster? It can be tempting to respond, get a bigger engine, or take some weight off your boat, but we try to limit our responses to propeller related solutions. Sometimes, a simple change in pitch will help. Other times, a different diameter, or a different number of blades can make a difference. Our advanced propeller designs (CX and Marlin) really do increase top end speed. But there is another way that you can make a big impact on a boat&rsquos performance: wake-adapted. Read More

CJ7 Specifications

The Jeep CJ7 is part of the company's CJ series -- the grandfather of the sport utility vehicle. The CJ originated as an all-purpose vehicle for the U.S. military during World War II following the war, in 1945, it and went into civilian production, hence the name CJ (for Civilian Jeep). Willys-Overland produced the CJ from 1944 to 1953. Kaiser-Jeep followed through 1970, when the American Motors Corporation purchased Jeep. Chrysler bought Jeep in 1987, one year after the CJ7 ceased production.

CJ7 Backstory

When AMC took over Jeep in 1970, it sought to give the CJ series more versatility by making it larger, with more creature comforts, although even by 1970s standards, the CJ7 that debuted in 1973 was still spartan, and mostly a rough, off-road vehicle. Yet it featured a new automatic four-wheel drive system dubbed the Quadra-Trac and a new part-time two-speed transfer case. The CJ7 also featured a Dana 20/30 front axle and an AMC 20 rear axle.

Under the Hood

More than a few engines powered the Jeep CJ7 from 1976 to 1983. The CJ7 series featured seven power options over its long production run. The CJ7 came with the 160-horsepower 225-cubic-inch Dauntless V-6 the 82-horsepower 2.5-liter Iron Duke four-cylinder AMC's 100-hosepower 232 and 150-horsepower 258 straight-sixes and a 150-horsepower 305 V-8. The 258's horsepower rating dropped to as low as 110 following the 1970s fuel shortages. The CJ7 also came with the rarely used 2.4-liter Isuzu diesel four-cylinder. A 5-liter V-8 also powered the CJ7. It had an 8.4-to-1 compression ratio, developing 126 horsepower and 218 foot-pounds of torque.

Transmissions

Beginning in 1976, the CJ7 featured a TH400 three-speed automatic transmission, a T18 four-speed manual transmission or a T150 three-speed manual transmission. In 1980, the TF904 three-speed automatic transmission was mated to the 2.5-liter engines while the TF999 three-speed automatic was coupled to the 258 straight-six engines. A four-speed manual was standard equipment in post-1979 CJ7s. Beginning in 1982, the T5 five-speed manual became available in CJ7s.

Dimensions

The CJ series steadily grew in size over the decades, with the CJ7 being the largest of all CJ models. The early postwar CJ2A featured an 80-inch wheelbase, with an overall length of 122.75 inches. Early CJ-5 versions through 1971 featured an 81-inch wheelbase, while the post-1971 CJ5s models' wheelbase grew by two inches to 83 inches. All CJ5s had an overall length of 139 inches. When the CJ7 arrived, the wheelbase grew to 93.3 inches, with an overall length of 148 inches. The CJ7 was considerably taller than the CJ5s, standing in 1979 at 67.7 inches, and was also wider, at 68.5 inches. The CJ7's fuel tank held 15.1 gallons of fuel.

Chassis

The suspension system on the CJ series changed over the decades to reflect technological advances. The CJ2A featured front and rear rigid axles with leaf springs. The steering system was a worm-and-peg configuration. It rode on 16-inch wheels. The CJ5 and CJ7 models featured front and rear live axles with semi-elliptic leaf springs and a Saginaw recirculating ball steering system. All CJ models featured four-wheel drum brakes, although front discs were available on late CJ7 models. CJ5s and CJ7s also had 16-inch rims installed.
