Very popular in its day, the XJ generation Jeep Cherokee only seems to have developed in recent years. Although legions were built during the model’s decades of production, which stretched from the mid-1980s to the 2000s, their propensity to rust and their popularity as built all-terrain vehicles mean that it didn’t is not easy to find uncluttered original copies. This makes this example from 1985, auctioned now on Bring a Trailer, all the more remarkable.
As a 1985 model, this Cherokee hails from the early days of the model. It’s powered by a GM 2.8-liter V6 backed by a three-speed automatic transmission (the legendary 4.0-liter straight-six will arrive later). All-wheel drive is provided by AMC’s Selec-Trac system. This Cherokee is a Laredo and has power front seats with fabric upholstery, air conditioning and power windows. It also retains its original wheels and original AM / FM stereo cassette.
This Cherokee has just over 48,000 miles and has been in the same family since new with the seller’s grandparents being the original owners. This low mileage along with a life spent in Washington State explains the well-preserved condition of the body, the envy of XJ enthusiasts in the Midwest and Northeast.
The perfect size and timeless style of the XJ Cherokee is even more appreciated today than when it was new. A few days before the auction, the auction stands at a still reasonable amount of $ 5,500 at the time of writing. But these Jeeps are just too popular for such a quirky example to slip out the door for this bargain price. Watch the video below to see how Jeep resold them back then.
