1987 4 door Jeep Cherokee Laredo is 6 cylinder straight line, with bucket seats, center console, automatic transmission and manual windows. It is in great condition with impeccable upholstery.  The headliner and visors were replaced.  It is clean, clean, clean and runs beautifully.  The paint is original as are the wheels.  Our Mother loved her Jeep driving nearly 165,000 miles herself.  The Jeep was recently transferred to one of her daughters.

This 1987 Jeep Cherokee Laredo was Dad’s gift to our mother on Mother’s Day, 1987. We’d gathered for festivities…food, fun, family…as we were accustomed to doing for any and every holiday. Mid-festivities, after a lovely lunch at our sister’s home, Dad stood up and rather suddenly said to our Mom, ‘Let’s go for a ride.’ Off they went in Dad’s white Datsun truck, returning later Mom’s new Jeep. I think that it was a complete surprise to our outdoor adventurer Seattle Mountaineer mother. None months later, our Dad unexpectedly died. Mom’s heart strings were securely tied to Dad’s Mother’s Day gift to her.

 

For thirty three years, our Mom, loved her Jeep taking friends and/or family with her to the mountains to hike, to cross country ski or to serve as Snoqualmie Mountaineers Lodge weekend treasurer. River salmon bakes, ocean razor clam digs, Sound to Narrows walks, Volksmarches, half century bike rides, botany club meetings, Montaineer meetings, junior college outdoor classes, shopping, her Jeep got her there. And Mom made sure to get her Jeep in for regular maintenance. Between times, her much loved Jeep was cozily kept in her garage. She never gave one thought to selling her precious Jeep.

 

She left us, age 98, just this year. We hope the Jeep’s next owner will love it as much as our mother did.
