360 V8, 4 SPEED MAN., PWR STEERING, DUAL EXHAUST, SOLID, FUN AND AFFORDABLE!
Streetside Classics is fast becoming Jeep central, and even we had to step back and stare when this rare, useful, and incredibly capable 1984 Jeep Scrambler showed up. With a 360 V8 it moves like a muscle car, with a pickup bed it hauls plenty of gear, and with legendary Jeep ruggedness, it's still ready to hit the trails. Is this the ultimate 4x4?
Prices, and inventory, are definitely on the move with these CJ-style Jeeps, and the rare Scrambler pickup is a highly desirable variant. Of course, finding a good one is the challenge, with so many being bashed, abused, used up, and modified beyond recognition, and that's why we love this one so much. The modifications it does have are sensible without altering the truck's basic goodness and the silver paint has a glow that suggests it's been loved rather than used. The slab-sided body doesn't offer dramatic curves, but it doesn't give shoddy workmanship anywhere to hide, and aside from a few spots that do show wear, it's really impressive overall. Correct black decals and "SCRAMBLER" lettering on the hood work well with the black rubber fender flares, black top, roll bar, and oversized front bumper. Traditional Jeep styling cues abound, from the grille to the asymmetrical mirrors, and steps make it easy to climb aboard. The bed is not only finished with a spray-in bedliner but also includes a second seat for passengers, depending on how bold they feel.
Inside, this Scrambler is far from basic, with brand new bucket seats from BestTop that fit well because they were made just for this application. The floors are covered with more spray-in bedliner material so they'll look good practically forever, and there are heavy-duty rubber mats, just in case. The dashboard and steering wheel will look familiar to anyone who has piloted a CJ in the past, and all the gauges appear to be in good working order. There's an AM/FM/CD stereo system, although it's not currently hooked up, but I'm guessing that you'll hardly miss it when you pull off the hard top and enjoy this Jeep alfresco. The rear seat in the bed is upholstered in weatherproof vinyl and pops out pretty easily if you want to use this truck as, well, a truck.
Forget the original six-cylinder engine, this Scrambler now has AMC's finest, a 360 cubic inch V8 dressed in all kinds of horsepower enhancing upgrades. On top there's an Edelbrock intake manifold with a good old Rochester 4-barrel carburetor, a high performance distributor, and plenty of dress-up to make it look great. Finned valve covers and a matching Jeep-logo air cleaner work with corporate turquoise engine paint to make the engine bay pop, and you know it's hard to make it look this good if you're constantly playing in the dirt, so we suspect this Jeep has led a fairly easy life since the restoration was completed. Power steering and brakes are welcome on anything with tires this big, and there's a snarky dual exhaust system with turn-downs just ahead of the rear axle. The 4-speed manual transmission, 2-speed transfer case, and heavy duty axles at both ends are the hardware you need for climbing through the rough stuff. It's also been fitted with almost new Mickey Thompson Baja radials on cool slotted steel wheels that give it a very brutal look.
Take it from us, Jeeps are red hot and if you like the utility of the Scrambler, you're going to have a hard time finding one nicer than this. Call today!
