I begin “For Sale” week with this beauty which brings back a few interesting memories. The Cherokee Chief was built from 1974 to 1983, and was a two-door version of the Jeep Wagoneer.

A long time ago in a galaxy far, far away, one of you nut-jobs bought one of these with the bright idea of driving it (a day later, with all your worldly possessions) from Bammer to Warshington, DC. When you are in college things like this sound like good ideas, so I was only too eager to be co-pilot on this little road trip. The only thing more surprising than our delusion was that we actually made it there fully loaded, with a mattress tied to the roof rack, without breaking down.

Only $1600. What a bargain! 4WD even! This beauty doesn’t look too bad at first glance. Hmmm… the back window is rolled down… uh, no, it’s gone. Those should be easy to find though… yeah. And the “Hunter’s Special” written on the window is not a good omen.

Interior does not look too bad. Except the seats don’t match each other.

A look in the back window reveals some “creative” engineering to get that fancy bucket driver seat mounted. What could possibly go wrong with a 2×4 for a seat mount? And where did those back seats go? The sign on the passenger seat says “extra seats available”.
