Jeep Stops Production of Popular Vehicle, Idles Factory

On July 7, 1965, President Lyndon Johnson was in the White Dwelling and “(I Can not Get No) Gratification” by the Rolling Stones was at the prime of the charts.

And on the identical working day the very first vehicle rolled off the line at the Belvidere Assembly Plant.

The facility, located in Belvidere, Unwell., went on to deliver a assortment of versions from the Chrysler, Jeep, Dodge and Plymouth manufacturers. The Jeep Cherokee has been constructed there since 2017.
