Go Anywhere: 1987 Jeep Wrangler Laredo 4.0
This next car comes from tipper SecondMouse who writes: I confess I am not a Jeep person myself, but I know people who won’t drive anything else, and I can understand their appeal if you spend any time off road. Here is a pristine example complete with recent new engine and hardtop. I find it ironic that some many Jeeps are driven by poseurs (broseurs?) because the Jeep is such a non-poseur from an engineering/design/tech perspective — it is a big middle finger to progress. It’s body on frame with suspension derived from an ox-cart, has a pushrod engine that could be at home on a boat, the aerodynamics of a Windsor Castle, and seats taken from a stagecoach…and that goes for any Jeep made by Willys in 1940 to a Jeep made by Stellantis today. Haha Stellantis. I can’t stop laughing. Find this 1987 Jeep Wrangler Laredo 4.0 offered for $5500 in Richmond TX, a suburb of Houston via craigslist.

Nice clean example, First year and only year Wrangler manufactured by American Motor Corporation before Chrysler took over. Not a 4.0, but a 4.2 carburated engine, Peugeot trans, not the best combo, half door upper windows don’t fit with a hard top on the YJ model, I would ask for the soft top or hard doors.
See everyone– this is the kind of expertise I love to see in the comments!! I don’t know much about YJ ownership, but have always thought about joining the club.
