NEVER MISS A CAR!
1985 AMC Jeep Cherokee Pioneer, one of the last years AMC owned the Jeep badge. 47,900 miles from new. 2.5l inline 4-cylinder Renault engine. 2-door, 4-wheel drive. Finished in original Olympic White.
The vehicle is completely original, with the few exceptions listed here. The AC was updated to R134A in 2013 as noted on the refrigerant reservoir and as confirmed by my mechanic. The original “smoker’s windows” (triangular vent windows on the front side of each door) have been replaced with OEM fixed windows. The fixed windows were tinted to match the rest of the glass. The rubber window wipes on the inside and outside of each window have been replaced.
The original side mirrors and door handles on both doors have been refurbished. All parts were stripped and repainted while the internal mechanics were refreshed with new parts (ie. springs, bushings, etc.).
The original 4 stereo speakers have been replaced with new, high watt Bose speakers. From the exterior, the look is original but they function much better. Installed is a new, old stock AMC AM/FM stereo that is period correct. The stereo was installed with a hidden 50w amp/EQ. The result is a sound system that looks completely original while functioning much better (and is ready to accept the peripheral of your choosing).
The interior is trimmed in original garnet Mesa fabric. The headliner is perfect. Included are original Jeep floormats. A full-size spare is mounted in the rear cargo area and includes the original cover.
All exterior plastic trim (grille, headlight surrounds, bumper caps, etc) has been replaced with new. The original front bumper has been re-chromed and looks amazing.
The driver’s side rear quarter panel had suffered from a botched paintless dent removal before current ownership. This has been corrected by Burnside Collision in Portland, OR. The result looks new and is indistinguishable from the rest of the vehicle.
Mechanically the can runs like new. It’s benefitted from a new electronic ignition control unit. The valve cover was recently resealed. The AC unit has been recently recharged and blows ice cold. The 4wd system and automatic transition work great and were serviced by Columbia Transmission in Portland, OR when I purchased the vehicle. I have paperwork for all work listed.
Included with the car are the original owner’s manual, workshop manual, dealership brochure and unused tire chains.
