1977 Jeep Cherokee "S"

I am looking to find and restore to showroom a Cherokee to replicate one that actually existed. It must be a 1977 Cherokee "S" with a 401 V-8. Those are the minimum requirements. Ideally, with original wheels and roof rack on it. I found two so far that were alreadt restored either fully or partially just in poking around online, but both were sold by the time I inquired. Appreciate any leads on this. Thanks.

Have you looked at eBay motors or maybe Craigslist? We have a section here where older cherokees are sold. Maybe there is something to your liking.

Thanks. Yep, checked both eBay and Craiglist--there are a few out there, so far 360 instead of the 401, and Chiefs, not Sports.

My Dad had one of those when I was a kid. I think it too was a chief though.
The thing was a beast! He did have to completely rebuild the motor though. It was a real dog when he bought it. With some care, and new parts, that V8 came to life though.

Great choice and hope you find one. I had a 79 Chief and you talk about overbuild. Its on a ladder frame with a double wall unibody on top of it. I took out the AMC motor and slid a small block Chevy onto the stock GM 400 tranny that came with it and did a gear conversion to the transfer box.
