The Chicago Bluesmobile Is Coming to the Halloween Flea Market October 20, 3pm to Midnight!  DuPage County Fairgrounds, 2015 Manchester Rd, Wheaton, IL 60187

The Chicago Bluesmobile is screen accurate replica of the Bluesmobile featured in the hit 1980 movie The Blues Brothers. As portrayed in the film, the Bluesmobile is an ex-police car from Mt. Prospect Illinois that Elwood Blues purchased at auction just prior to his brother Jake’s release from prison. The fact that Elwood picked up Jake from prison is a police car did not go over well with Jake!

The Chicago Bluesmobile started life as a 1976 Dodge Royal Monaco that was purchased in late 2016 and converted into The Chicago Bluesmobile over the course of eight months, making its debut at a charity car show in May of 2017 that benefitted the Chicago Police Memorial Foundation.

All the conversion work was performed by The Chicago Bluesmobiles owner, Brian Scanlon. The work involved converting a 1976 Dodge Royal Monaco into a 1974 Base Monaco was extensive and required a combination of NOS parts, gently used parts, and custom fabrication. Along with many hours of viewing The Blues Brothers to capture all the onscreen details!

Since its completion, The Chicago Bluesmobile has appeared at many comic-cons, parades, and other events throughout the Chicagoland area and the Midwest.

The Chicago Bluesmobile was featured as the lead picture in Rolling Stone Magazine France’s article Sweet Home Chicago! (Rolling Stone Fr Issue 102, March 2018)

The Chicago Bluesmobile was the first Bluesmobile allowed to drive onto the honorable Richard J. Daley Plaza for a photo shoot since the filming of the original movie!
