Autotrader Find: 6-Wheeled 1982 Jeep Cherokee

I’ve featured an unusual level of 6-wheel drive vehicles here on “Autotrader Find” including, last week, a 6-wheel drive Ford Raptor. But this might just be the weirdest 6-wheel-drive vehicle: A 1982 full-size Jeep Cherokee, with three times as many wheels as doors. It’s also orange.

This 1982 Cherokee is listed by a private seller in rural Molena, Georgia, roughly an hour south of Atlanta, and it has an asking price of $18,000. To me, that seems highly reasonable for a vehicle with six wheels. Many times, when you spend $18,000 on a car, it has a mere four wheels; this is a dramatic step up from that paltry figure.

Despite the fact that this is an old Jeep and probably a private conversion done by someone who simply decided they didn’t have enough wheels on their Cherokee, it looks surprisingly nice — and, dare I say, professional, including an impressive array of off-roading accessories. In back, there are porthole-style windows, which only add to the cool look. The ad doesn’t go into detail about the conversion process, but notes this Jeep was “always garaged,” which suggests the owner has a rather large garage.

As for the Carfax report, it notes this Cherokee spent considerable time in the western U.S. before coming to Georgia, suggesting it’s probably rust free — something backed up by underside photos included in the ad. In other words, as 6-wheel drive vehicles go, this is a pretty good one. Find a Jeep Cherokee for sale

  1. Note: a comment I tried to post previously appears to have been moderated out of existence, maybe due to to including links to a certain bloglopnik.

  2. So can we not mention or post links to your former employer, even if the Jeep featured above has been covered there? Seems like it would be of relevance.
