MORE ABOUT THIS MODEL:
The Bluesmobile is a 1974 Dodge Monaco sedan that was prominently featured in the 1980 Universal Pictures film The Blues Brothers. The car is described as a decommissioned Mount Prospect police car, purchased by Elwood Blues at an auction after he had traded a previous car (a 1968 Cadillac Sixty Special) for a microphone.
The Bluesmobile was equipped with a “440 Magnum” engine and squad car package, an option offered by Dodge for the Monaco in 1974. It bears an Illinois license plate reading “BDR 529”, a tribute to the Black Diamond Riders motorcycle club of Toronto, Canada.
Dan Aykroyd, co-writer of the film, stated that he chose the 440 Dodge Monaco because he considered it to be the hottest car used by police during the 1970s.
