The popularity of the 76-86 has grown immensely over the last 5 years as folks that had on of these when they were younger or wanted one are searching for quality examples.  Additionally, the marketing department at AMC Jeep created so many great color and package combinations from 76' - 86' that new enthusiasts are realizing how great these classics are.  This particular 1981 Jeep CJ7 Laredo is one of Jeep's best packages.  Blending the V8 304 power of the 76-80 CJ's with the Laredo packaging created a 1 of 300 limited run in 1981.  The story goes Jeep had a very limited amount of AMC 304 V8 engines left in 1981 and allowed dealers to special order 81 Jeeps with a V8 early in the year.  Add in that this vehicle is rust free, Laredo packaging and V8 makes it likely one of only a few dozen produced.

Vehicle History

The vehicle reportedly sold new in Spring, TX and spent a short amount of time in South Dakota and Utah before landing in California in 1999. The current owner purchased the vehicle in 2018 after it received a cosmetic exterior restoration from Austin Jeeps in Austin, TX. During the Seller’s ownership, the Jeep was taken to Collins Brothers Jeep (Wylie, TX) for a professional engine reseal/paint and installation of a Howell Throttle Body Injection (TBI) Electronic Fuel Injection (EFI) kit. In 2021, the Seller transferred the vehicle from Nebraska to Thompsons Station, TN where it is currently being stored. The Seller claims there is no evidence of rust (or previous rust repair) anywhere on the vehicle. Per the clean CarFax historical report, the Jeep has no history of any damage.
