1981 Jeep Scrambler


VEHICLE LOCATION: Florence, AL VIN Hammer is pleased to present this gorgeous 1981 Jeep Scrambler (CJ8) Laredo finished in color code 9B "Olympic White." VIN HAMMER'S PERSPECTIVE Wow! What can we say about this Scrambler that the pictures don't? The Laredo was American Motors Corporation's (AMC's) top of the line trim package, which included a chrome grille overlay, leather wrapped steering wheel (with Laredo horn button) and passenger grab bar, rocker panel trim, chrome side mirrors, vinyl high back purse striped seats, instrument cluster surround, and Laredo decal package. The 1981 Scrambler Laredo (SL) is highly desirable as it was the first year AMC offered the Scrambler. This Scrambler received a meticulous year+ long frame-off restoration by the current owner with the highest level of attention to detail. Building a Scrambler to this caliber will cost you more time, money and headache than the reserve price the Seller has offered the Jeep at. If you're looking for a top-tier Scrambler Laredo that will turn heads anywhere you go, win awards at car shows and be the highlight of your collection, then we think this one fits the bill!
