1981 Cherokee Cheif
 
I have this 1981 right hand drive cherokee chief, 2 door, 360 V8, Automatic 3 speed trans. Here are a couple pictures. What do you think it's worth?

I don't want to sell but probably will since my wife got laid off from a school district. Any help would be appreciated. Thank you.

Nice view count but no input!! Bring it up top!

How many miles? What kind of mechanical condition?

The odometer reads 44,xxx, I had paperwork from the previous owner stating 68k when he bought it, so it is really 144k. As most jeeps the 4 wheel drive operates perfectly as it should, the interior is in great condition. I recently did the front and rear dif gaskets/oil and tranny pan gasket/oil. All were weaping a little and I don't like leaks. Always starts up, engine runs smooth, drives like a jeep! The engine bay could use a little cleaning up which I might get to in the next week or so. Things I would do if I was going to keep it: New Carburetor/Air Cleaner, Suspension all around, Track down some intermittent electric items. Let me know if there is anything else you would like to know. :)

Around here that would be 3 to 5k

1981Chief 07-30-2013 07:32 PM

That's reasonable, all I have to do now is build up my 15 posts so I can list it properly. Thanks. ;)

I would be a buyer all day at 3-5k. That gets me a rust bucket where I live

I had it on craigslist for $5800 for about a month, one guy was ready to buy until he finally realized it was right hand drive. So I will start out asking 5k here and see what happens. I had no intention of selling this, it is an awesome jeep that gets compliments everywhere I go. :cool:

I guess there is not interest in this jeep. :( up top!!

1981Chief 08-09-2013 06:41 AM

Bring it up top to see if there is any interest in this beast!!

I think right hand drive would be a cool bonus.

1981Chief 08-10-2013 06:00 PM

Thank you, I agree but some people don't see it that way. I am sure a jeep enthusiast would. A new question for anybody out there: Is there a way to tell what country your jeep was manufactured in by the VIN?? The guy I bought it from was from great Britain, but I don't know for a fact that it came from there.

1981Chief 11-25-2013 06:09 PM

bring this up top!!! Still for sale ;)

There is a way.. The first digit represents where it was produced 1 = US

And 2 = Canada. Could be a special for a postal delivery guy, but the mileage doesn't jive, as a postal delivery unit would have mega-miles on it.
