1977 Jeep Cherokee Chief SChief ALL ORIGINAL AMC 360 V8
– Turbo 400 automatic (rebuilt original)
– Full time quadratrac 4×4 (+ lowrange)
– Daily driver
– Original paint
– 33″ BF Goodrich A/T’s This is an extremely rare truck due to the model itself, option package, and especially the low mileage and exceptional condition. This is a well-maintained survivor, not a restoration. I drive it on a daily basis. The entire drivetrain is numbers matching original. Only what needed to be replaced or rebuilt (degraded/wearable/rubber, etc.) was done. A few modifications were made within the engine compartment to simplify the extensive vacuum and ignition systems and improve reliability: Only the necessary vacuum lines were left in place and/or replaced. The smog pump system was removed. An HEI (integrated coil) distributor was installed. A non-EGR edelbrock manifold was installed, along with an electric-choke Edelbrock 1407 4-barrel carburetor. I have the original brackets, manifold, A/C compressor (not installed), etc. that will be boxed up and sent with the Jeep at sale. I have owned this Jeep for 4 years (55,000 Miles at the time) and personally done ALL of the work to it – therefore I don’t have receipts for the work. If it makes you feel any better, I will gladly source as many parts invoices as I can find. Over the last 4 years, I have replaced a lot of common parts to get this Jeep to the point of being a very reliable daily commuter. The following has been replaced or done in the last 2.5 years:
Alternator, battery, regulator, wires, HEI distributor, plugs and wires, all fluids, water pump, radiator restoration and test, all hoses, heater core, transmission rebuild, head gaskets, 3 angle valve job and heads decked professionally, valve seals, valve springs, valve cover gaskets, intake manifold, carburetor, air filter, fuel pump, fuel filter, fuel soft lines, brakes at all four corners in last 3 months, brake master cyl and booster, brake wheel cylinders, headlights, dimmer switch, bfg tires, wheel vintiques gray primer wheels with center caps. The Jeep cranks up and drives beautifully. It also has the added on low-range kit. I drive it about 1000 miles per month. Here is the short list of things that do not work: Bremen, Georgia, United States
