1984 Jeep CJ-8
right hand drive
RHD original paint
To see my web-album with 45 photos of this Jeep, please visit https://goo.gl/photos/75vHnvPojXfa6d5g8 You are looking at a very rare right-hand-drive 1984 Jeep CJ-8. There were 230 made total, and only 100 known to survive today. This vehicle is un-restored, and in amazingly good original condition. I've got a standard left-hand drive dash-panel that will be included with the vehicle if someone wishes to convert it to left-hand-drive. It's got the 4.2 liter inline-6-cylinder engine, 4-wheel-drive, and automatic transmission. The odometer reads 67,061 and the vehicle is still wearing its original factory paint… even the wheels have never been re-painted! I had to source the doors & tailgate, as these ones were not on the vehicle when I got it. I just rattle-can painted them as close a shade of white as I could find, but they're not a perfect color-match. I also touched up inside the bed and a few areas where the paint was getting thin on the body when I ran my buffer over it, but it shines up nicely, even though its 33 year old paint. There is very little wear on the brake-pedal pad, and very little rust on the entire vehicle. It's not all dented up either. So many of these trucks got beat to heck. A brand new gas-tank was recently installed with new sending unit & fuel hoses. There's a brand new muffler & tailpipe, new EGR valve, remanufactured alternator, new belts & hoses, valve-cover gasket, new fuel-pump, fresh spark-plugs & wires, new distributor-cap & rotor, new electronic-ignition box, new ignition-coil, new fuel-filter and I just rebuilt the carburetor. The engine runs strong, smooth and exhibits no ticks, knocks blowby or extra noises. The antifreeze, oil & filter were just changed recently. The transmission shifts firmly through all the gears just as it should, and the 4-wheel-drive works perfectly. It has a factory posi-traction rear-axle, and it is still functional with good clutches in it (I tested it out myself). It's got power-steering and power-brakes with discs up front. They work very well, and stop the truck on a dime. The lights, & turn-signals work, but one parking-light is burned out up front. It's a factory radio-delete vehicle, so never came with a stereo. Being a floor-shifted automatic is very rare, too. Most all of these were column-shift. The alignment is excellent, and steering is nice & tight with no play in the wheel. With 2:73 gears it's no rock-crawler, but it cruises right along at interstate-speeds nicely, while getting respectable fuel-economy. I've got a good, clear title in my name. The interior is in good condition overall, with an un-cracked dash pad. Carpet is getting tattered, and there are some easily-patchable rust-holes in the floor-pan. The windshield frame is rusted as well. Overall though, this vehicle is very solid as far as rust goes (check out the undercarriage pictures!). There are some areas around the edges of the wheelwells inside the bed that have rusted through, but nothing like most CJs of this age. There is zero Bondo in the body anywhere, so what you see is exactly what you get… no hidden rust like on SO many Jeeps where people just slap on huge diamond-plate rust-covers. I would really call this one an original survivor. When do you ever see unmolested examples of these CJ-8s with so few miles on the clock, and wearing their original paint? They almost always have some aftermarket lift-kit, and non original wheels. These are getting extremely sought-after and collectible (as Scramblers were rare to begin with). This one doesn't have the cheesy Scrambler decals and chrome wagon-wheels, so it's strictly a CJ-8, but I think it's a cleaner, more timeless look with the body-color steel-wheels and no ‘80s graphics. Those are factory wooden side-boards (not reproductions) above the box-sides, and amazingly not rotted out after 33 years! I have an ACME fiberglass full-hardtop that I would consider selling with the vehicle for an additional $1,000. That would enable it to either be a pickup, OR an SUV. The right-hand drive is extra unique, but not for everyone. I was kind of hoping that someone from a British territory where they drive on the left side of the road would end up with this rig, or someone with a rural-mail route, perhaps. I would say a person could hop in this vehicle, and drive it anywhere on a moment's notice. It's very reliable and road-worthy.
