Car description

1979 Jeep Cherokee Chief
Original paint survivor. This Jeep was first sold out of Albuquerque, NM then made its way to Arizona. A priest in Phoenix owned it before I bought it off what we believe to be the 3rd owner who brought this Jeep to Tucson, AZ about 5 years ago.
Jeep has part-time kit to make it true 2WD when cruising the streets. Quickly engage the part-time kit to allow the quadratrac transmission to engage. Has working 4H and 4L. Automatic transmission shifts perfectly, and transmission has no issues whatsoever. Tons of power in this 360 motor!
Air conditioner blows extremely cold. Everything on this Jeep functions as it should. The rear glass goes up/down by either the switch on the dash, or a key on the tailgate (this is a common area that breaks on these vehicles, but this one works perfect). There is absolutely 100% zero rust / rot anywhere on this Jeep except for the common rust-prone rear quarters right behind the rear wheels. All these Jeeps rust there due to them collecting mud/dirt. As you can see, though there is rust, it is not nearly as bad as others you'll find since it lived in a dry climate its whole life. The Jeep's original paint has a nice patina to it. But, it's only original once.
Believed to be 80,905 original miles, but I'm not 100% certain the odometer has not rolled. EBay's autocheck may be able to confirm. The AMC 360 motor runs excellent and this Jeep drives like a new car...kid you not. One pump of the gas peddle to prime the carb and this thing fires right up from a cold sleep. Vehicle came with a stack of maintenance records dating pretty far back.
The front seats have seat covers that are extremely difficult to get off. They are fastened under the seat with clips. I have no clue the condition of the driver/passenger seat. But look at the condition of the rear seat and doors panels...that should tell you something.
Not sure what else to add. For sale with a very low reserve. If you have any questions ask away and I'll do my best to answer them. I'll be away from the vehicle for a few days, but will respond with any further information I can provide.
This is my standard vehicle disclaimer - $500 immediate deposit due right away. Balance due within 3 business days of purchase via wire transfer or cashiers check. Vehicle is expected to be picked up within 2 weeks of purchase. This is a private-party sale and I have the free and clear title ready to go. I'd love to say fly in and drive it home, but remember, it's a 39 year old vehicle. I think it would make it anywhere in the country just fine, but that is up to you. I know for peace of mind I would transport it, but that's just me. If you're from out of town, I have a super reliable auto transporter who I have not been able to beat his prices. I would be glad to relay that information to you, or assist you in getting a quote from him. Or, you can always be old school.....haul your own trailer, come drink a beer with me, and pick up the Jeep yourself. That is sometimes better!
