1975 Cherokee S
Anthony reached out to me to help him find a black Cherokee. He really only wanted Black, Not always the easiest color to find in the Full Size Jeep world, after a few months, we were able to track down a good starter. She was all original but had LOTS of rust, We tore it down and began on a long journey of metal work and paint. We replaced most all of the passenger floor board, the front part of the drivers floor, partial pcs by the rear wheel well, couple of spots in rear cargo area, both lower inner and outer quarter panels, some odd spots like inside the tail light housings. Once all the Metal work was finished, we pulled the front clip and painted the inner fenders, resealed and detailed the engine block and all its pieces, Added a Howell Fuel Injection, Modern A/C components, headers and a Magnaflow exhaust. We also installed one of our shackle reversals in the front with a 2.5″ lift spring to fit some 31×10.50×15 tires on original polished wheels. Next was the black paint! close to 300 hours are in that paint job (inside and out), Epoxy coat, primer, sealer, LOTS AND LOTS of sanding, then 5 coats of factory black base coat (but modern) and 5-7 coats of clear then LOTS of wet sanding and buffing. But boy howdy she turned out to be a looker. A new set of repop stickers, repainted badges tie it all together! We also did a new carpet kit, a strait and not cracked dash pad, headliner and detailed the original door panels and seats as best we could. The upholstery was not in the budget after all that paint work. However he will have the seats redone soon. This Jeep has a really cool door panel insert if you look closely at the pics. This turned out to be a REALLY stunning Jeep. The paint is miles deep and runs and drives awesome. Thanks again Anthony, I hope its happy in the garage with the black JK and black suburban!
