1975 Jeep Cherokee S - Lots of Pics

Looks like this one will be following me home this week. My first one this old. Can't wait to get her home.

Holy s***, that's a beaut.

Plans? ...Hopefully not too radical, for one that looks that, "well preserved"!

Very nice, won't take much to make it like new.

It's so nice to see one of these rigs that hasn't been kiderized and even nicer to see a true survivor.

that is one nice rig! I am digging the paisley seat trim. Manufacturers were more creative with that sort of stuff back them.

Finishing up the inside.
Redid the armrest while I'm waiting for the seats to come back from the upholsterer.

Test fitting it:



Disassembled and recolored:

Reassembled:
I decided to go with black trim on this one instead of chrome, since there's more black in the cabin than chrome.


Test fitted to see how well the color matches. Almost perfect.




Still have to hook up the electrical and air. I'm going to do carpet in the gaps between the console and the floor.

Hope to have the headliner, seats, back carpet, insulation installed, and rear window motor greased by this weekend.

Sneak peek of the Cherokee seats. You can't get the same embossed material for the stripes anymore, so I decided to bring the white stripe on the body into the cab. I think it's going to look pretty sweet.

Should've bought stock in used explorer consoles. Lol.
This one's out of a Mountaineer, tho. Just a little different, but the same.

Unfortunately I couldn't save the paisley trim on the front seats. They were too far gone, and couldn't get a match.

Thanks, Dave. I think everybody has convinced me to keep this one. So, Murphy will be hitting the market soon.

Where are you in NC? I'll be in Greensboro and Asheville this weekend.
