800 Derita Road, Ste. A
Jeeps 4x4s are nearly just as much about looking chic as they are about being capable to handle any terrain. And you can really do both in this 1981 Jeep CJ8 Scrambler with Golden Eagle premium packaging.
The Trans Am might have its screaming chicken on the hood, but that can't hold a patriotic candle to the bird that graces the front on a Golden Eagle packaged Jeep. But there's much more to this than just graphics. Jeep people know this was a range-topping designation so this one has to give off the right impression. That includes a bright white look of sophistication, and a full gold trim package that includes stripping that wraps around the rear. This has the full doors and roof to keep this fully enclosed when you want it, and the gold color on the hardtop has a partially distinguished look. The polished seven-slot grille, mirror-like bumpers, and bright trim package complete the look of this premium package. But even this pretty boy still knows how to get to work. That's why you have a lifted 4x4 stance and liner paint protecting the truck bed.
Inside the premium Golden Eagle treatment continues. You get features you don't see on other Cjs, like the gold dash or full carpeting. And this one really is a nice place to spend some time. The tan bucket seats are newer, and they have modern bolstering for all-day comfort. In-between is a cup holder center console. Plus, you have other great features like a tilt steering column and upgraded AM/FM/CD stereo. But the favorite part of any Scrambler is the ability to have a versatile pickup, and at the same time, you can choose your level of how open to the world you want to be.
The engine bay has the clean look of proper care and investment. The 304 cubic-inch AMC motor is that perfect powerplant that combines Jeep-level robustness with V8 muscle. In fact, you have great power upgrades, because this inhales deeply with a Holley four-barrel carburetor. It exhales with authority as Hooker headers add even more power while contributing to the growing side pipe exhaust. The V8 fires up readily, and this Scrambler feels solid on the road. Out the trail, this V8 is a great partner with the 4x4 components like the two-speed transfer case, Nitto Mud Grappler tires, and sturdy axles at both ends. Add in power steering and power brakes w/discs up front, and this is truly an unbeatable package.
Scramblers are an awesome way to enjoy vintage Jeep looks while getting added rarity and versatility. So when you can find a nicely finished example like this one, you know you need to hurry if you want to take it home. Call now!
