My new Cherokee

1974 Cherokee S 401/auto. I am the 3rd owner. Needs some work. Carb needs fine tuned, Dual exhaust needs replaced. some metal work.

Happy new owner. (so far)

Cool, looks very clean, even for a PNW truck.

Really a lot of potential.

If you can't make it better why waste your time. No use repeating the orignal mistakes. I'm to old to push it that's why.

I love the old pattern on those seats. I've only seen them once in a salvage yard NT.

Standing ovation! There's nothing like a '74 Cherokee - they absolutely hit it out of the ballpark with the stripe design/placement and badge placements. What a beautiful rig. Don't forget to post a pic of your trim plate in the Owner's Registry when you get a chance. Looks to be the same color as mine (Trans-Am Red). Give it a good polish and wax and you will be amazed at what's under that oxidation!

Your interior seems to be in beautiful shape! My seats were the same pattern, but someone had replaced the driver's side with a seat out of a newer FSJ. Bummer.

Nope not a Chief - it's a top-of-the-line "S". Seems to have every option except bumper guards and maybe low range and the clock?

Really cool! I always liked the early NT Cherokees with 5 slot rims on them. That'll be awesome when it's all cleaned up!

Very nice score! Especially for the price that was posted in the Craigslist ad.
