1983 Jeep Scrambler CJ-8
I recently purchased this from the original (family) owner. They purchased it in Southern California in 1983 with the soft half cab top option. It was largely a grocery getter/beach cruiser in one family of 36 years. I was going to completely restore it, but have decided to go in a different direction.
Jeep looks good from a distance but needs some work to get it to 100%. At one point the Jeep was stored under a tarp for several years near the beach and developed some body rust in the floor boards and a little on the cowl as well. The frame is great. No rust there. Engine was replaced with another 4.2L 258ci motor at one point, but it needs some love also.
Quadratec sells weld in replacement floor boards for around $70 per side.
$2,900 was recently invested to get it to pass smog. Carb cleaned and tuned, new cat, tune up etc.
Jeep runs good now. Has newer tires on it. This Jeep is completely unmolested…it is bone stock, it just needs some TLC. Keep it stock or turn it into a rock crawler, your call. 5 speed manual transmission.
These are getting harder and harder to find out there! Don’t let this one slip away. $9,000
Please text. Located in Hacienda Heights.
