A Scrambler fell into my lap

Very Nice! Not many Garnet interiors around. Probably one of the rarest color interiors. I have an 85 cj7 with same graphics and interior.

I'm in Thayer, Kansas. If it is close and I can help let me know.
If there is anyone coming east from Kansas, I will meet them in Indiana. I need to make a trip to Johnson City, Tennessee in the next week or two and can haul it to north Georgia if that would help.

by the way, WELCOME!

I appreciate all the offers for help. The jeep is near Manhattan, KS. It won't be making the move for at least two months because I'll be pcsing shortly and would rather ship it once.

I do have a couple of questions. The paint code is 4M which is charcoal metallic? I got a 1985 Jeep brochure, and charcoal metallic isn't listed as an option. The brochure also only lists the garnet interior available in the CJ-7 and not the Scrambler. Since this was AMC could this all have been special ordered?

I was told by the Teledo factory workers on the line the last 10 Scramblers off the line were charcoal metallic. I had one of them with the garnet interior. I'm 99.9% sure it was all factory. :wave:

I know of one other 85 8 that is factory charcoal metallic. That particular 8 is a late production 85. I believe charcoal metallic is listed as an 86 color but it did end up on some late 85 productions. Was told this by someone I consider a cj expert.

Just about anything is possible with AMC. I was at Western Hills Jeepin 1973 the day they unloaded a blue Comando with a 401 in it straight fropm the factory. I craweled under it to confirm it. It was sold to Big Ed Kincle from Indiana. :wave:

How big was Big Ed, did he live up to his name?

Oh wow, love that patina.

I almost bought an 85 CJ-7 that was 4M paint code. Only had about 45K on it back in 1992-93, but had more mechanical issues that I wanted at the time and I was looking for a hardtop. Back then one could be picky about finding CJ's.

My best friend growing up also had an 86 Renegade that was that color with orange stripes.

Awesome find. Can't wait to see you clean it up.

Thank you. I'm excited to finally get it and get it running again
