Car description

NO RESERVE Auction for 1979 Jeep Cherokee SJ Chief Wide Track. Two door with tailgate, QuadraTrac, 360cu V8 engine and automatic transmission. It has Hi Low shift on the tunnel along with part time 4wd and locking hubs. Odometer reads 30,322, but mileage unknown. The odometer only has 5 digits, so could be 130,322.

I purchased this car as a barn find out of Nevada. Over the years I have slowly worked on the car to ensure it is safe and reliable.

I changed out the front grille to a Gladiator grille, tuned up the engine and replaced the fluids along with the battery and radiator. I have also added several other parts such as an electric fuel pump to help in the cold weather.

The truck has a 3 inch lift on it with new 33 inch BF Goodrich A/T tires and new rims. We have enjoyed using this car to explore the back country with no problems. The back seat is removable for a larger cargo area.

The areas of wear on the car are as follows:

  • The front two seats will need to be recovered (the rear seat is in very good condition).
  • There is a small amount of rust on the lower edges of the fender flares (see picture 3). I have new fender flares, but have not had the time to install them. They will be included with the sale at no additional cost.
  • The fuel gauge reads high. I have replaced the fuel tank, sending unit and the gauge and have been unable to fully correct the issue.

I have a lot of spare parts that will be included in the sale at no additional cost. I have the original front grille along with a full size brush bar and the original wheels

Please contact me before the bid ends if you have any questions. There is no warranty, the car is being sold as is. Shipping is the new owners responsibility. I have a clear CA. title for this car. It is located in the Big Bear Lake area in Southern California if you would like to inspect it. Thank you for looking at my ad.
