Just wondering if anybody has one of the ever-elusive '86 Scramblers. Supposedly they exist, but does anybody on the board have one, or know someone who does?

I'm sure this has been asked before, but a search didn't really turn up anything.

Saw one in St.Petersburg, FL last year. It was at a jeep carlot on Hwy# 41 for sale, but owner of lot was smart enough to sell it as one-owner so he sold it as a consignement sale so buyer could be 2nd owner. It was owned by a retiree, garage kept but had some mods done to it; Aftermarket radio, dual exhaust, hurst shifter on 3 speed, and gauges on dash. Fair amount of rust on side panels and in tub and in cab around edges, had bondo in front of drivers door where it had been wrecked in side. He was asking $10,000. my boss almost bought it cause he said he could take it to west coast and sell it for $20,000. as is. We did not see title but figured he'd be a fool to lie to us when we were right there. I went back in 2 weeks to just look at it again but it was sold, I was told someone from Collins Jeeps bought it.

That is the only one I have ever heard of. I think we need to make a permanant Sticky at the top. Maybe someone browsing will reply :D I would be satisfied with a sticker.

The only one I know of was owned by John Jacott, I guess that's the one that was in the accident. He used to have a pic of it on his website but that was years ago. It was dark brown from what I remember

It makes you wonder if the 128 (IIRC) count for that year is truly the correct number. Scrambler forum...niche group of people...only one accounted for. Hmmmmm.

Anybody contacted Collins Bros to see what they know? Never dealt with them myself, but I figure some of you that have may have an "in" to talk to someone in the know there...

As I recall, someone in MN was rebuilding one last year & posted here.

If you apply the 3% rule to the 1986 numbers made then there are 3 or 4 stil out there.

Tease. :D Welcome to the site. We're anxious to learn more about your '86...particularly, I have questions about the VIN #.

Isn't it Minnesoter? ;)

I love the board name... might as well put it right on out there and rub it in all of our faces :D :D :D

You do know we'll need proof, right :cool: ;) It'd be great to have one on the board!
