RealRides of WNY - 1977 Cherokee

This 1977 Jeep Cherokee marks the first year that AMC’s entry-level family wagon was available as a four-door. Introduced for MY 1963 as the Wagoneer in both two- and four-door models (the two-door version was dropped for MY 1969), a less-expensive two-door Cherokee variation debuted for MY 1974. Many like to call the Wagoneer/Cherokee the forerunner of today’s luxury SUV vehicles; the 1984 Grand Wagoneer with its arms-length list of posh features certainly attests to that. These days they’ve achieved cult status, with a company in Texas refurbishing/rebuilding old Grand Wagoneers into new Grand Wagoneers like the one at the bottom of the page, and selling them for prices approaching (if not exceeding) six figures. We found today’s RealRide, wearing Texas tags, just down the street from the RealRides home office in Tonawanda a month or so ago.
