15k: Much Wampum: 1977 Jeep Cherokee Chief SJ

The SJ series of the Jeep Cherokee was built by AMC from 1974 through 1983 in 2 and 4 door wagon configuration.  The Cherokee has the dubious honor of claiming to have been the
first vehicle to use the term “sporty utility” in its sales brochures,
although the SJ chassis is light on sport and heavily tilted to the
utility side of the spectrum. Find this 1977 Jeep Cherokee Chief here on eBay currently bidding for $14,199 with 1 day to go, located in Boulder, CO.

In 1975 Jeep introduced the “Chief” package, which added cosmetic trim, larger fenders, and a wide-track axle to take advantage of the fender clearance for wider tires, but it added a little flair to the regular “S” wide-track package.

This car wears a beautiful coat of Tawny Orange with a saddle colored interior on the inside — it really looks in good condition in the photos, so one has to assume it has been restored at some point in the last 38 years.  Power comes from a 401 cubic inch (6.6 liter) AMC V8 rated at 195 horsepower.
