Lot 233 - 1998 Jeep Wrangler Sahara (4.0 Litre)
|Odometer reading||97,812 miles|
|Result||Sold - £8,960|
The Wrangler is arguably an indirect progression from the World War II Jeep, through the CJ (Civilian Jeeps) produced by Willys, Kaiser- Jeep and American Motors Corporation (AMC) from the mid-1940s through 1980s. All Wrangler models continue to use a separate body and frame, rigid live axles both front and rear, a tapering nose design with flared fenders, a fold-flat windshield and can be driven without doors. Also, with few exceptions, they have part-time four-wheel drive systems, with the choice of high and low gearing and standard are open bodies.
This example is presented in green with beige removal hardtop and green cloth interior. Once the hard top has been removed, it reveals the ‘roll hoop’ and then provides the occupants with fun open air travelling. This model comes with the more desirable 4.0 litre six-cylinder engine mated to an automatic gearbox. It comes with wind down windows and is fitted with a tow bar with twin electrics. Great fun for the Spring or Summer in particular.
