RARE 1979 JEEP CHEROKEE GOLDEN EAGLE. TEXAS TRUCK. LS SWAP! VERY COOL!!!
This 1979 Jeep Cherokee is a very rare and unique vehicle. It is a Wide Track Cherokee and it is also a real Golden Eagle. You don't see these very often and you definitely do not see these in this condition. Being a Texas vehicle the condition definitely makes sense. It is also an LS Swapped vehicle. We have pictures of the Jeep showing it in its original color with the Golden Eagle Decals too. This Cherokee drives amazing with the LS Swap. This vehicle was selectively restored and did not need to be frame off restored because it was super clean before they did the work. The body on this truck is great!! It is a very solid, all original, steel body Jeep. It was repainted in the original colors and they also put on the new decals. Paint looks excellent. The underside is solid and original as well. It was not detailed because the last owner used this jeep for a power tour and that is one of the reasons he put the LS motor in it. The interior is also very nice with the front seats being replaced with a newer more comfortable seat. Rear Seat is original and in great shape. They also added custom door panels and put in new carpet. Gauges were swapped out with Dakota Digital Gauges that look cool and work great. It still has the original radio which works and all of the lights, blinkers, wipers, heat, ac, is working.
The engine in this Cherokee is a LS 5.3L Vortec and it runs excellent. The motor was gone through and they added a stage 2 Cam. The swap was done very nicely and they made it look like it came that way from the factory. They also used the 4L60E Automatic Transmission and it shifts perfect. When they did the conversion they did not use the Transfer case because the previous owner wanted to use it as a power cruiser. We do have the original TH400 transmission and Quadratec transfer case that will come with the Jeep if you want them (both have been rebuilt). They also added new gas tank and new fuel pump and new BFG AT 31 Inch Tires on the Vintage Turbine Wheels. Front and Rear Axles are DANA 44's. This is an Amazing Golden Eagle Cherokee that drives so nice.
