These look to be Factory photo's from before Scrambler was released.
Check out the emblems and Laredo hood lettering:
Chocolate (which AMC color is that?) one must of been pre-production or artist rendering.

I searched and couldn't find thread on factory photo's so with new Historical on CJ-8 figured these photo's of photo's would be good start....

please post any factory photo's that you may have.

Very cool pics Red Mistress! Thanks for posting them up.

Has anyone ever seen an original 1981 Scrambler with lever type handles on the doors instead of paddles? My brother had an original 1981 Scrambler SL with paddles used on the doors.

Also, the Laredo graphics look exactly like what I have on my original paint and decals 1980 CJ-7. Very interesting.

Very cool! The lines on that soft top look an awful lot like those on a World Cab.

That soft top does look like a world cab. Sure is tall...looks a bit awkward to me.

Cool pics! :thumbsup:

I have an old b&w from WWII of a Jeep parked in front of a B25. My dad flew 25's, and I'm a Jeep guy, so that photo holds a special place in my heart. Found the pic in one of those piles at an antique store shortly before my dad passed away.

Cool pics

Glad everyone enjoyed the pics.

Figured the Historical section of this forum would be good place to put up pics of brochures and any other cool looking Jeep pics.
:drool:

No comments on the Chocolate brown Scrambler's front grill? Looks like a DJ that was cut?

Anyone ever seen the CJ-8 emblems? I can take a close up pic.

That chocolate brown Scrambler is a rendering. I can see the marker strokes on the curve of the hood. Also look at the wheels, the perspective on the rear wheel is a bit off.

Has anyone installed one of those factory storage boxes pictured above in the back of their Scrambler?

Great photos by the way....

I see now that not all Scramblers have the "Scrambler" emblem on the rear quarters. Is that correct? I assumed that all 8's had them-

The '83 sales brochure I have shows the "Scrambler" emblem on the rear side panel. I think these emblems came on Scramblers that didnt come with the "Scrambler" decals on the sides of the hood:shrug: The picture I have shows a red, base model scrambler, solid steel white rims, no decals, but it shows the chrome scrambler emblem on the rear side panel:shrug:

I'm still hoping to see a factory picture of a Scrambler with a roll bar mounted spare and wood side rails. To date... I haven't seen a single factory picture of any year Scrambler equipped with a roll bar mounted spare and wood side rails. I want to add wood side rails to my Scrambler in the worst way, but I'm not sure I want to if the factory didn't offer it that way.

I've thought about doing that but the few "Jeep boxes" I've found have either been sold before I could get them or were out of my price range.

CJ pics

Suprised no one mentioned the 8" Chrome wheels pictured that are not drilled for center caps.

Come to think of it, I don't think I've ever seen wood side rails and spare tire on rollbar....in a factory photo. They would both fit, just going to take some digging to find photo.

The plastic Jeep storage boxes are for CJ-7 only.
There was also a early metal storage box that was sold through Kaiser era Jeep dealers.

probably has the slate blue interior !


Really like this pic with the ultralight plane.



This is not Scrambler, but my favorite Jeep factory photo....Starskey & Hutch with their babes washing their Jeep Sportside. 2500 Sportside's built from left over Jeep Gladiator thriftside beds.

I have a set of the 8" chrome wheels without the center cap holes. They are currently on the Scrambler. Damn Slate Blue interior...it's driving me crazy. :crazy:

8" Chrome Wheels drilled for center caps

The significance of the non-drilled 8" wheels on a Scrambler factory photo... is that it sorta dates the photo as being before 1981.

1981 was one year only to have 8" chrome wheels drilled for center caps.

Thanks for the info! I was wondering when they switched and why the 15x8's didn't have the holes.

The roll bar I acquired from Flagjeep was from his 1984. It had the boss for the tire mount, and the little holes from the wood siderails.
