From its inception, the world-famous Jeep was not built to be a glamour vehicle, it was created to be a workhorse. And work it did, after proving its value around the world during World War II. With peace declared, Willys-Overland introduced a civilian version of the Jeep and now, nearly 75 years later, the Jeep brand is revered as one of the most iconic motor vehicles ever produced. Over the decades, Jeep transformed from strictly utilitarian to a more civilized vehicle. The introduction of the CJ7 in 1976 presented a perfect package, a longer wheelbase than previous model allowed for more passenger comfort, while still providing a compact maneuverable platform for both city streets and off-road pathways. As customers became more demanding, Jeep answered the requests with the Laredo package, introduced in 1980.

This 1984 edition is equipped with all the appointments that has made this one of the most sought-after series produced. Secreted away in climate-controlled storage almost from new, this is most likely the lowest mile triple-black Jeep Laredo in the world. Showing under 1,170 miles (1,883 km) on the odometer from new, it has been maintained in showroom new condition; this Laredo has it all. Chrome dress-up items include special chrome wheels, a full chrome front grille, plus heavy steel front bumper plus bumperettes to the rear also in deeply reflective chrome finish. Wearing the its factory applied Classic Black paint, the interior is done in heavy-duty black leatherette special vinyl bucket seats and is complemented with a complete black soft top including the soft doors. Those clear plastic windows are as clean and scratch free today as they were when installed at the Toledo factory 35 years ago and the top has never been removed or lowered. Other exclusive Laredo appointments is the special full instrument cluster in the center of the dashboard and the ruggedly designed steering wheel plus grab handle, both of which are wrapped with black leatherette covering. Under the hood is cleaner and better presented than when it arrived at the dealership showing off such items as the air-conditioning system, power steering and power brakes. Several upgraded accessories are the AM-FM radio, as $258 option in 1984, as well as the rare Marchal amber driving lights.

New in every way, we believe this is the lowest mile, most factory original example of the Jeep CJ7 Laredo in the world, and a rare opportunity indeed.
