1984 Jeep CJ Postal Scrambler

Maybe you're familiar with the Jeep Scrambler, but then again, maybe you're not. Take a good, close look at this 1984 Jeep CJ8 Postal Scrambler, which isn't your run-of-the-mill off-roader. Originally used for mail delivery in Alaska, it's got a unique look and a funky panel van vibe that will make it stand out at any Jamboree or cruise night you attend. And it's still a blast to drive! The Scrambler was a slightly longer CJ7, ostensibly a mini Jeep... pickup. And by adding a custom panel van top and unique steel doors with straight window frames, it has an industrial look that is insanely appealing. Along the way, it lost its utilitarian paint job and gained a glossy coat of black that makes it look far more contemporary than it must have delivering the mail. Silver Scrambler decals and sport stripes dress it up properly and chrome pieces like the bumpers, grille, and mirrors add some much-welcome flash. But it remains a Jeep at heart, so things like the big fenders with rubber flares, round headlights, and a set of step plates mean that it's ready for just about anything. That fascinating panel van top fits beautifully and includes a large rear door, making this a lot like a vintage Land Cruiser and if you squint just right, maybe even a Mercedes-Benz G-Wagen. Whatever the inspiration, I promise you'll have the only one at any event you go to and someone spent a ton of money to bring it up to its current fantastic condition. Not perfect, but pretty darned nice for a Jeep made to go anywhere. The interior remains basic, but in Jeep world, that's a virtue. High-back bucket seats have original-looking two-tone gray covers and yes, you're seeing it correctly, it's right-hand-drive (because it was used for delivering mail, of course). In application, it's easy to get accustomed to driving on the other side and after 10 minutes, you'll forget all about it. That is, until you show up somewhere and EVERYONE wants to know just what this Jeep's story really is. If you don't like attention, this isn't the right Jeep for you. But if you like to drive, this one has goodies like an automatic transmission, a full set of gauges, and carpets on the floor that make it feel reasonably civilized. The entire floor is protected with a spray-in bedliner, and even the large cargo hold has a nicely fitted carpet that makes it feel a little less bare. Jeep's bulletproof 258 cubic inch inline-6 provides plenty of power to have fun in the dirt and it's reasonably thrifty out on the road. With a fresh carburetor and lots of recent service work, it's ready to play and the durability is legendary. You'll note that there are additional changes under the hood to accommodate the right-hand-drive setup, but nothing too radical and almost everything is still available from the usual sources, so don't worry that this one is made of unobtainium. The 3-speed automatic transmission makes sense for mail delivery and it's linked to the same rugged transfer case and axles that all CJs carry, so it's ready for an adventure. There's a slight lift on the chassis to clear those giant tires, as well as a set of recent shocks and a newer exhaust system, so someone invested time and money here. 15-inch Blade blacked-out wheels look suitably industrial and carry huge 33x12.50-15 BFGoodrich All-Terrain tires. Everyone you know will do a double-take when they see this cool Jeep, and compared to most Scramblers of this quality, it's a bit of a bargain, and highly-collectable. And at its core, it's still a Jeep, so you know exactly what you're going to get. Call today!
