Jeep Stops Production of Popular Vehicle, Idles Factory

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

And on the exact same day the 1st car or truck rolled off the line at the Belvidere Assembly Plant.

The facility, located in Belvidere, Ill., went on to create a assortment of designs from the Chrysler, Jeep, Dodge and Plymouth brands. The Jeep Cherokee has been constructed there since 2017.
