The codes changed from '85 - '86 :shrug:
This isn't quite right. I had a sneaking suspicion that 1986 Laredo's were still #EJ as I've had a few. Checked my fairly late 1986 Garnet Laredo 7, and it was 1EJ. So, AMC may have changed codes for base or denim seats but the Laredos still have a E as the middle character.

The 1 refers to the interior color which on garnet I would expect to be a black interior. Therefore, the 1EJ would be correct.

Yep, sorry I wasn't very clear. Garnet is the exterior paint color. The interior is black and 1EJ.

So of course I had to watch it too. Comes up in my Google feed. I get that he's all about rarity, but automatic CJ's make my stomach hurt. I do get it for a dedicated rock crawler, but I'd never pay a premium for an automatic, I don't care how rare it was. And not having overdrive sucks.

1/3 of the love I have for my Jeep is rowing my own gears. And the granny low on my NV4500 is awesome.

I noticed on the 81 Laredo that the door panels were the standard type. Does this mean the Laredo Door panels didn't come out until 82?

AMC did all kinds of weird things. My '85 CJ-7 base (bought new by my dad) came with tinted hard top/doors, PS/PB, 258/T-5, tilt column, denim (high-back) seats, clock/tach, smoker's package, TracLock, towing package (HD rear springs), center console. The dealer added custom pinstripes and aftermarket wheels. From what I can tell, the only options it was missing were A/C, auto, cruise, and wiper-delay. It was definitely more highly optioned than the '84 CJ-7 Renegade I picked up in college.
