Crisp 87 Cherokee chief on eBay

Recommended Posts

Looks like my Comanche only my chief has 10 times the mileage and has been repainted. It’s about two hours north. Very tempting. But $10,000 for a Cherokee is hard to justify.

Yep, the XJ had in the early days a tow hook in the rear as well.

Ok so this Jeep is 1 hour away from me. I really like the truck what  is the max I should shell out and not be overpaying? I have seen some low mile MJs go for crazy numbers but not really much for the XJs.

Yes. He’s selling the truck on Craigslist locally with a asking price of $8900. I really dig the truck but I’m not sure what I should give him for it,

IMHO it's worth what he's asking. 

Assuming it is real. 

 

Last one I saw I ebay that was in similar condition sold for $6900 but has something like 67K miles on it........that was about 5 years ago. 

 

There are only so many rare birds like this. 

 

If you want it and can afford it...........it's worth it.

BTW.........

 

If you think this is an investment, it's not. 

 

If you want something no one else has and you want to take care of it  and appreciate it for several years........you'll enjoy it.

 

Will you get your money back? Yeah, most of it. Will you make money? No, probably not. 

 

But, you get to cruise the beach in style for a while.

I’m in the Fort Myers/Port Charlotte area.

 

And yeah I would be buying it to keep not resell I just didn’t really know the market on clean XJs as they are far and few and didn’t want to overpay for it.

Didn’t think this thing was still kickin around, but yeah 8900 for what it appears to be is not crazy at all, it really looks legitimately well maintained. Trust me I never would’ve posted this in January if I’d had the money, I would’ve bought it and then posted about the purchase:) @comanchefan Let us know if it’s as good as the ad looks!

IMO, overpriced @ $10,900.  It's a clean old truck, for sure.  Buy it if you LOVE old Renix trucks, but being a Chief doesn't add much to the premium in my book.  It's basically alloys and stickers ...with cloth seats.  No leather and no power windows.  That makes this bird rare, but not particularly special.  Since you asked, I'd max out at $8,500.

 

I think AMC really screwed up by not making the Chief the top trim package.   The "CHIEF" should have come LOADED.

The more I think about this the more it’s looking like a impulse buy that’s going to end up costing me more that I would like to put into it. I don’t have a garage so I would spend a lot of my time washing waxing and trying to preserve the original paint. I would be too scared to drive the thing and rack up the mileage. And for what I would use it for a $1000 Cherokee will do the same thing. As much as I would like to own this one I think I’ve talked myself out of it.
