1982 Jeep CJ Scrambler A car is only original once. In the sea of custom and over restored Jeeps this Scrambler stands out from miles away.
Inarguably the most original Scrambler out there in the best color combo, black over tan. With less then 8000 units produced in 1982, they are getting really hard to find specially in this condition.
89k miles on the working odometer, 5 speed manual transmission.
With its original paint and decals this Scrambler sure knows how to turn heads. This Jeep spent all his life in California. It still has both original blue plates. The body is straight, no rust anywhere just amazing patina. Never painted, the bed is all original with no dings,the wood side panels are original and further add to the Scramblers character.
Dealer installed old school Warn winch gives it even a tougher look. I do have the original Marchal fog lights that it came with, including the hard to find plastic covers.
The interior is a conversation piece on it's own. First thing you'll notice its the original upholstery on the factory 60/40 bench seat. Yes, this Scrambler is a 3 seater, with lap belt for the 3rd person.
The dash is original and uncut, still ahs the original radio and the original ashtray. All the gauges work properly, odometer currently showing just 89k miles. There's a modern blutooth radio installed under the dash. Behind the seat there's a stealth alpine sub with an amp. The center console has a custom made cupholder installed. Again, nothing has been cut.
In the bed there's a black aluminum lockable tool box installed.
While an effort was made to preserve or try to keep everything as original as possible, there are some reliability and period correct modifications done to the Jeep.
It has a 4'' lift with new shocks and bushings.
4 brand new BFG tires on the factory wheels.
Under the hood is nice and presentable. A Howell TBI fuel injection system was installed, with check engine light and OBD reader in the cabin.
