    Hi guys,
    I am looking for websites which list local vehicle sales.
    I am looking for a Jeep. It needs to be made before 1984.
    I would prefer 4 door,

    I live in zipcode 11743, and I am looking for something within a 100mile distance

    I have tried cars.com, but the search is not coming up with anything which fits the requirements

    Yeah, seriously. Why 1984? Do you have some kind of contract saying that you *must* own a car that is more than 25 years old? Haha.

    In New York State their is a law about vehicle repowering. A law was passed in 1984, which stated that the owner of the car can only repower the vehicle with an engine the vehicle was sold with. That gives me the options of the I6, I6High Output, and the V6 (I6 means inline 6). Since Jeep never sold with a real diesel other than the old Kaiser's, I need a vehicle which is made before the law went into action.

    Since I want to put a big old Detroit Diesel 3-53 in it, the vehicle needs to be made before 1984. I need a full size jeep, because I plan to use a military grade 5 speed transmission, or a 10 speed if I am lucky. They are too long for the CJ's

    Craigslist, or collectorcartrader.com should help.

    Nothing wrong with old cars...

    Am I correct in stating that their are only two 4 door Jeeps models made after the Kaiser era up until 1984?
    I think the only two are the
    jeep wagoneer
    and
    jeep cherokee chief

    I am looking at craigslist now, they have a lot of late 80's models,
