Re: Found a Wagoneer for $500.00 what to do
It is a 77 Cheerokee, looks just like a Wagoneer. I just talked to the owner and he says it runs fine has 75,000 original miles and needs a new valve cover gasket, power steering box rebuild, rear window crank, and a few other little things. I am going to drive it this evening. I am not sure how much wider the axles are than mine b/c this cheerokee has the narrow axles, for that vehicle there are two widths. My narrow track CJ is just too narrow and wanders all over the roads that are rutted, in MT. they are all rutted from logging. The Cherokee has a 360, Turbo 400, Q-tach, and needs a good bit of body work. The owner said they would take $350 cash and I could drive it away this afternoon. Is this vehicle worth the effort of a total rebuild into a nice daily driver/ trail machine. If so I would sell the CJ and fix the Wagg. er Cherokee
CJ has modified 350, 33's, a lot of mods, gas tank/one piece shafts/custom heater/hard,soft,bikini,another bikini-tops/lots of stuff but it gets bad mileage, and is squirelly on ice up here. Basically just one thing after another goes wrong on the CJ. Are all AMC's this way or what. If so I will just keep the CJ and possibly take the axles off the Cherokee and sell the rest for $100 or just leave the thing where it is.
