After the CJ-6s demise in 1975, there was another cry by owners formore room. AMC answered with the CJ-8 "Scrambler." Built as a103-inch-wheelbase pickup with lots of rear overhang, the CJ-8 came inhard- or soft-top models. A steel hardtop version was exported to Australia, and reportedly 176 insulated panel delivery units with automatic transmission were sold to the U.S. Postal Service for use in Alaska. The Scrambler was a very modest seller, withonly 27,792 built. An upswing in popularity in the 1990's has turnedthe old CJ-8 into a very hot item with lots of room for trickmodifications. This well-used CJ-8 beolongs to Greg Noss of GlenwoodSprings, Colorado. (Jim Allen)
