In the fall of 1962, the Willys Motors division of Kaiser Industries (soon thereafter known simply as the ‘Kaiser Jeep Corporation’) introduced the new Wagoneer as a 1963 model. It was bigger, better and more family-oriented than the outgoing Willys wagon. It came in both both two- and four-door versions, with large windows and a spacious interior. Most notable was the intentional interior treatment…the fit and finish was considerably more upscale than any other 4×4 on the market.
The story of Wagnoneer is not the story as it is told for its near twin brethren, the Cherokee. Produced from 1974 through 1983, the full-size Jeep Cherokee (SJ) was AMC’s attempt at reintroducing a two-door model of the prior Wagoneer made from 1963 and 1967. The SJ would be marketed as the sport version of the more luxurious Wagoneer. The Cherokee featured a fixed rear window with optional flip-out section, 4-wheel-drive and four different engine options…a 110hp 258ci inline-6, a 2-barrel or 4-barrel 360ci V8 and a ‘what’s this I hear about a gas crisis’ 401ci V8 4-barrel engine good for 215hp. In 1979 the Cherokee would receive a major facelift, and most notably dropped the round headlights in favor of rectangles.
Today we present to you a completely stock narrow-track 1975 Jeep Cherokee 2-door as it would have appeared over 40 years ago. All four wheels pull and is powered by a 258ci straight-6 cylinder which is paired to a floor shifting 3-speed manual transmission. The seller has owned this Jeep for just over two years and has since put about 1,000 miles on it. At the time of purchase, he changed the fuel filter, plugs/cap/wires/rotor/coil, switched to halogen headlights, balanced the tires, and performed an oil/filter change. When not in use, it stays warm and dry in a heated garage. This Cherokee has a clean clear title and ships from New York along with the original build sheet. Shipping and financial assistance is available.
The tan exterior appears to be in excellent condition and the seller notes this Jeep was repainted at some time prior to purchase. Over 60 photos are provided in the gallery showing closeups. Minimal corrosion is noted around the windows. Most of these older Jeeps have been lost to the rusty graveyard, so we certainly feel the blessings here this one has survived. The bulkhead appears to be in good shape, nothing to note that appears concerning from the photos. The seller provides photos of inside the rear window crank area and all appears in good order with respect to no/minimal corrosion. All three door locks and the roll-down tail gate window operate with the same key.
Some minor paint bubbles are noted in the pictures, as are a few nicks with a key for size reference. Some spotting is seen on the under side of the rocker panel sills. The chassis appears to be in good condition with no notable rust concerns other than surface corrosion in places. Tires are Cooper Discoverer H/T’s and show plenty of tread left.
Inside the original stark interior is what makes this Jeep so appealing. All of the necessities are covered and nothing more. You have a heater, lights, and windshield wipers…what more could you need? And certainly less to go wrong. The seats show very well for the age and the seller notes in one of the pictures a small tear.
The vinyl mats appear to hide nothing of concern. The odometer is showing just under 21k miles and the seller believes this to be original though with only a 5-digit odo there is no documentation to prove it. The videos below show a cold start and brief walk around.
