1983 Jeep Cherokee Chief Sport on 2040-cars
Long Beach, New York, United States
Up for sale is a 1983 Jeep Cherokee Chief 2 door in very good shape for a 30+ year old vehicle. The jeep is in great running condition with several aftermarket parts including: Edelbrock 650cfm carburetor and aluminum performer intake manifold, Mallory HEI distributor, Edelbrock aluminum water pump and BJ's offroad aluminum radiator. It runs at 190-200 deg all day in the middle of the summer heat with that aftermarket water pump and radiator setup. One note: the Jeep does have an AMC 401ci. motor not the 360ci motor as listed above( eBay does not have that motor listed for this model year.) Other parts include an aftermarket polyethylene gas tank and Flowmaster 40 muffler with new tailpipe and exhaust tip. The timing and idle is set perfectly with the top end motor setup and it sounds even better with the exhaust. Both drive line U-joints have been changed as well as brakes at the four corners and the front wheel bearings have been repacked and greased. The body is in great shape for a jeep of this year and as the photos will show, the only rough spot on the entire truck is the lower rocker panel on the passenger side. All the fender flares have no rust or rot which is typical of this particular jeep. The chrome is showing signs of pitting with age and could use some re-chroming. The interior is in great shape with the dash board all in tact but, as usual with these jeeps, the only issue is cracking of the dash speaker due to sun wear. The headliner is an earlier hard piece not the later model fabric ones which tend to sag over time. It does have 35x12.50 tires and a lift kit to fit the tires perfectly and at this point I would probably recommend a new set of shocks.
I am not the original owner but I have kept all receipts of the work I have had done and I do have a clean title for the truck as well. The jeep is by no means perfect and I don't claim to it being a show truck but it runs incredibly well and shows great for a real jeep of its year. I would like to see it go to a new owner who will enjoy it and keep it as well as I have tried through the years, so please only serious bidders.

The 2015 Mazda2 is quite high up on our must-drive list. Yes, the teeny, tiny successor to the 100-horsepower five-door is worth getting excited over, largely because the previous generation was one of the absolute best smiles-per-dollar values on the market.

While we eagerly await for our opportunity to take to the 2's helm, our expectations of the new car have just been heightened thanks to its win in Japan's Car of the Year competition. Called "Demio" in the land of the rising sun, Japanese journalists handed out Mazda's second COTY award since the CX-5 took the title in 2012.
In more surprising news, the new Jeep Cherokee has made the list of 10 Best Cars in Japan. The Jeep's triumph marks the first time an American car has cracked the top ten, finishing eighth. It's not, however, the first Fiat Chrysler vehicle to snag the title, following in the footsteps of the Alfa Romeo Giulietta and Fiat Panda. Still, the fact that an American brand can make such impressive inroads into the traditionally tough-to-crack Japanese market is a seriously big deal.
According to a report on the Chrysler Communications Facebook page and one fairly grainy image of the production line, at around 11:00AM Eastern this morning, the one-millionth Jeep Wrangler JK will roll out of the company's Toledo assembly plant.

The third-generation or "JK" Jeep Wrangler has been around since the 2007 model year, and has obviously been more popular than ever. With a greater than ever number of trim levels, two-door and four-door Unlimited models and hardy off-roading Rubicon packages, the JK offers more to choose from than ever for those looking for something in a traditional Jeep. In fact, with the modern 3.6-liter Pentastar V6 powering it, the 2012 model year saw more than 140k Wrangers sold here in the US; the best-ever figure for the model.
With a model refresh due out for the Wrangler in 2015 (along with the likely addition of a diesel engine option), we expect that sales will continue to roll right along, too.
The 2014 North American International Auto Show is right around the corner, which means it's high time we found out which cars and trucks would be finalists for the prestigious North American Car and Truck/Utility of the Year awards.
The finalists - three in cars and three in three trucks/utilities - are dominated by American brands, with two-thirds of the finalists hailing from either General Motors or Chrysler (don't worry Ford, there's always next year), while outliers from Mazda and Acura can be found in each contest. Here now is the list of finalists for the big prizes:
