Hey all! New to the forum and first post (mods, I hope I put this in the right section).
I have been lurking for a while now, mainly interested in Waggys, but last night a '76 Cherokee Chief S came up locally and I'm not sure it's a good deal. So I thought I would throw it out here. All opinions welcome.
I talked to the owners roommate, and he is asking $1700, but indicated he would go down for quick cash. He is the third owner for about a year, and the last owner had it for 25-30 years.
Looks pretty much stock with 53K on the odometer. Pretty sure it's 153, but who knows. I managed to go by and look it over quickly and snap a few photos.
It has the V8 quadra-trac automatic. Leather interior. Engine started up quickly and sounded good. Didn't have time to actually take it for a spin, but the sellers roommate was more than willing to.
Up in the drivers side front wheel well.
Liftgate has a few spots that have rusted through and been bondoed.
Rust along the passenger rear wheel. Looks like some fiberglass work inside the wheel well.
I thought the interior looked pretty good. All original including the carpet. Drivers seat is separated along the seams. Back seat looks almost brand new. Headliner has a few gouges that had been touched up, but no cracks. No rust coming through the floor that I could detect.
Tires have enough left to get to the tire store.
Again, any comments/thoughts other things I should consider much appreciated.
