Jeep Identity

I recently purchased what I thought was a 1976 Jeep CJ7, But the title reads a `76 American Carry all. Any light on this would be appreciated.

Re: Jeep Identity

Sounds like the Jeep had "Lost" [img]/wwwthreads_images/icons/frown.gif[/img] its title, and they had a junk IH laying around with a title/vin tag, and the two became one. If anyone asks, you have a "Carry All with a Jeep body on it" ![img]/wwwthreads_images/icons/cool.gif[/img] Does the vin # on the title match the vin # on the Jeep? They may have just given you the wrong title when you bought the Jeep as well. Good Luck!

P.S. Get it sorted out BEFORE going to the DMV. They have no sense of humor when it comes to stuff that is switched around like that!

Re: Jeep Identity

The American is probably for American Motors
Carryall is the body-style...it's what many states call SUV's. All of my Jeeps, my S-15 Jimmy and my full-size Bronco were titled & registered that way here in Illinois.

Re: Jeep Identity

It was actually a Travelall. And it would not even fit on a jeep frame. The wheel base was 118 inches. Any other IH Frame would be 100 wheel base.
I know I have owned 4.

Re: Jeep Identity

Well, where I was from my CJ was registered as a station wagon! That really helped with ins.

Re: Jeep Identity

My 81 CJ5 says the same thing. It's just DMV jargon for "It ain't a car and it ain't a truck, and we don't know what else to call it"

Re: Jeep Identity

I also agree my 89XJ, dads 92XJ and my 95XJ are all the "carry all" body style on the title.

Re: Jeep Identity
