1983 Jeep Cherokee Laredo

Whilst we write about a lot of luxury cars such as Porsche and Ferraris here at Coolector HQ, if we’re being honest, when it comes to owning a car, it’s old school Jeeps that we’re most enamoured by and this amazing 1983 Jeep Cherokee Laredo which is going under the hammer with Bring A Trailer and has a current bid of just $21k so someone might just be bagging a bargain if they’re lucky.

The 1983 Jeep Cherokee Laredo from Bring A Trailer is positively overflowing with old school cool from an aesthetic point of view and it couldn’t be more to our tastes if it tried quite frankly. It has just 66k miles on the clock which, considering it’s nearly 40 years old, is a pretty low mileage and the Jamaican Beige over Nutmeg colour way that it comes in is just about as retro as it gets and will add a vintage vibe to any car enthusiast’s collection.

Powerful Performance 

Boasting a Selec-Trac 4-Wheel Drive performance with a 3 speed automatic transmission, the 1983 Jeep Cherokee Laredo won’t let you down from a performance perspective and it is an incredible machine visually to boot. The 5.9L V8 engine is a powerful performer and will ensure that whatever adventures you find yourself on, this glorious steed will be right by your side every step of the way.

The 1983 Jeep Cherokee Laredo from Bring A Trailer is a two-door wagon that comes from the final year of SJ Cherokee production and was sold new at Talley Motors of Valley Stream, New York. The truck is definitely one of the most visually engaging you’re likely to encounter given its finished in Jamaican Beige over a Nutmeg interior and it reportedly remained with the family of its original owner before its recent acquisition by the selling dealer.

Power is supplied to the 1983 Jeep Cherokee Laredo by a 5.9-liter V8 linked with a three-speed automatic transmission and Selec-Trac four-wheel drive. Some of the stand out equipment of this majestic looking machine includes a power-retractable rear window, air conditioning, a CB radio, and a cassette stereo. This SJ Cherokee is now offered in Raleigh, North Carolina with service records, a 1983 window sticker and bill of sale and with current bidding at just $21k it will represent a steal for some lucky buyer.

Muted Magnificence

This is certainly one of the coolest looking Jeeps from the 80’s we’ve seen go under the hammer here at The Coolector and the Jamaican Beige paint is brilliantly complemented by tri-tone graphics and polished side mirrors. Some of the additional exterior equipment includes running boards, a bull bar with fog lights, a chrome roof rack, a rear receiver hitch, Jeep-branded mudflaps, and an electrically retractable rear window.

With just a couple of days left to bid on this 1983 Jeep Cherokee Laredo from Bring A Trailer and with current bids at $21k, it represents an affordable and effortlessly cool addition to any car collector’s line up of vehicles. The interior boasts Nutmeg upholstery, high-pile carpets, and a matching dashboard. A CB radio is mounted on the transmission tunnel, and a cassette stereo and an A/C unit are equipped on the dash.
