Oh
:drool:Dang Kyle has some nice stuff! :drool:

I am about to sell my rust free desert # 18 Jamboree in original paint, light bar and winch (no push bar). It will be on my website in a few days and probably on Ebay. The severe bummer is that the seats are gone :(

I had a TRACKER CJ7 about 15 years ago I got in TN. All I recall is it had a 176 and a 6 cylinder and it was a widetrac.

Do you think this 85 CJ8 I had was a Spring edition?

Interesting stripe package, I wonder if it was from the factory or if it was dealer/aftermarket installed? Did the factory ever make any special package Scramblers other than the standard 3 packages offered?

I wondered especially about my Scrambler in question because Dennis Collins bought it from me. A couple years later I stopped down to sell some parts while I was delivering my then sold CJ10 export truck. He showed me his private collection in his quansa (sp) building at his house and my Scrambler was in it. I figured there must have been something special about him keeping it for hisself. Picking a number, he had about 20 to 25 special to him CJs in there. About 5 wide and 5 deep.

I want a time machine and a huge wad of cash.....

go back, buy then new, prep them for long term storage and mothball the fleet for 30-40 years........


I remember alot of those editions from ads, and a few from seeing them in person (not many).

I always wanted a Levi's edition and a CJ-7 Golden Eagle, I also really liked the Tuxedo Park.

Great stuff guys..Keep'em commin'!! :popcorn: :popcorn:

I found this one for sale in MT, it looks like a similar stripe package as yours did but there are some differences. Not sure if it is any type of "special package" though.

Renegade 1

Here is a factory photo and introductory letter to dealers explaining colors and 500 to be built.

This is pretty rare photo, very few Renegade 1 left.

My understanding the Renegade 1 had special wiring harness for guages.

I rotated picture in photobucket and it moved steering wheel over???

Camper Jeep poster and intro

Here is camper Jeep poster and introduction kit.

Letter shows options and pricing of camper.

This would really be cool if someone made bigger one for Scrambler !:drool:

one special that I dont recall seeing in this thread was the Roger Mears J10, I'm sketchy but it seems like there was one or something per dealership, J 10 Honcho, stepside, v8 in 1981 or 2 or 3 (likely not in 81 but not sure), in red only as I recall.

May have been mentioned but remember that alot of special tape packages were simply dealer installed and were unique to that specific dealership. Some with names and others just over the counter tape stripes installed by the shop guys, usually the kid who washed them prior to delivery...... I looked at a very nice CJ5 in 1975 or so in northern Ca that had a full cage ( smittybuilt, only kit on the market at the time), 11x15 Armstrong Tru tracs on white spokes, swing out tire and jerry can rack, factory 4.27 gears and trac locs. top was a dealer option as were hubs, passenger seat and heater. They had it all as a package but I dont recall the name or dealership, somehting like 'Mountaineer" or '49er' or something vaguely linked to the area (maybe the wino or something, I think it was in Napa valley...)

The Gaucho was not produced by AMC/Jeep but was built by a dealship in CA. Still a cool piece of Jeep history!

So I think I finally found a picture of the "Texan" package. I heard of this package but I have never actually seen one. This is a French ad and an export CJ:

Special Value

Jersey Jeeps told me about this pkg:

I've only ever seen the Adriatic Blue and not even a brochure on Sunshine Yellow.

That is good info! I thought only Limiteds were available with the color keyed wheels. I take it this package was only offered in '84?

Yes thats correct, just 1984. It also the only other time you could get yellow from the factory in the 1980s on a CJ, the one year only "sun yellow" in 1982 is the other. 1980,1981,1983,1985,1986, no yellow. I have some pics and a window sticker of a 1984 SVP in Adriatic Blue I will have to dig up and post.

Awesome. I love the "vintage" Jeep pics from the late '70's and '80's!

Great stuff. I'll have to do some digging now.
Our Jeep Club, IOK Four Wheelers, raffled off a Brand new 1973 Super Jeep. I had a ticket that missed the winner by 1 number :banghead:
The Jeep is still local, although he restored it 20 years ago and painted it forrest green.

:wave:
