The Jeep Farm, LLC is proud to have just SOLD this sympathetic restoration of a 1977 Jeep Cherokee Chief. Russet Metallic Red, Factory 401, th400, quadratrac, A/C, PS, PB, power rear window with defrost, Class II receiver hitch, Factory option Ramsey 8k winch and bumper, and factory option 3:54 gears with MANY extras.
Previous owners loved this Jeep! the 401 was rebuilt at some point. Mileage on motor is unkown, The Jeep has 165k total, but was towed behind a RV for many years (towing harness incl). The VERY strong 401 has Edelbrock 4 BBL carb, HD batt cables, new coil, wires, plugs, battery etc. All emissions equip is present including catalytic converter (and sticker above drivers visor) Runs like a champ, very strong and honestly the fastest FSJ I have had to date! The th400 was rebuilt also with a deep pan and shift kit. it has a HD cooler in front of radiator with dual electric fans to help move air. She has custom made springs with rears having 8 leaves, front dual shock hoops, with 6 new Rancho shocks and new steering stabilizer. Dual gas tanks with the selector on drivers floor(under floor matt), Swing out spare tire carrier that can latch onto the side of the jeep if you are carrying a load with tailgate down, 4 Brand new (50 miles) 33×12.50×15 BFG All Terrains on powder coated factory wheels (not painted) The spare is a 33×10.50×15 Brand new also (I decided to go with a thinner tire, height is the same) has 4 very nice wheel centers with some minor pitting. Hella H4 Headlight Conversion and New Winch Cable and hook.
The interior has brand new carpet, new custom floor matts, New headliner, Seats have only been redone where needed. New door seals, new window seals, new tailgate seal and window seals. power rear window works as it should, all gauges work, turn signals and wipers work as they should. Dash and bezels are in amazing shape. The A/C blows but, compressor doesn’t click on. Probably low on Freon. All A/C hoses are newer as is dryer and condenser. The Dashboard is perfect! no cracks, ash tray has never even been used. Gauges all work, has Old school 2 post tape player that works. 6×9 door speakers and 6″ round rear speakers (not working). The rear window defrost does not work, strips in glass are worn. The under dash A/C unit is missing the section that goes under the column (keep an eye on ebay, they do show up forsale). Otherwise perfect interior.
The body is 95% rust free. It has had one repaint in its original color at some point in its life. I redid the black portions and stickers and buffed the heck out of it. There was some rust in the rear flares (lower tips only) and floors that I could tell have been repaired in the past. (not much at all). You cant even see any areas from underneath. I sanded any pitting on floors, coated in “rust dissolver” then painted with a sealer paint. I also lined the cab areas with high end sound deadener. The paint shines very well. However not perfect. Has chips and scratches. There is a long scratch down drivers door (look at pics) and a stress area with chips on pass rear quarter. I am sure from the stress of the tire carrier (again look at pics). I have made a reinforcement plate for the latch area on tailgate (look at pics) and the lower hinge also needs a internal reinforcement plate made. There is “checking” on the roof and a spot on the hood, scratches and chips. Looks amazing till your right up on it. The doors seem to stick out a bit at the bottom, this is due to BRAND NEW door seals. Once they compress a bit the doors will sit flush (I promise….Well Jeep flush….so pretty close..lol)
This is a rare highly optioned Cherokee Chief! and a rare opportunity to own it. The 401 sounds healthy, no smoke or issues, runs SUPER strong and truly faster than any FSJ’s I have had…..and Ive owned a few…. The trans shifts strong and drives strait and true. Brakes, steering, cooling all work as they should. Awesome color and seat patterns.
