Hey, they can’t all be gems. This moss-encrust ’78 Cherokee Chief with a rotten, moldy interior and wasted floorboards is fairly indicative of what happens to a vehicle parked outside under tree canopy in the Pacific Northwest. Still, its 360 V-8, TH400 tranny, and wide-track Dana 44 axles are good for something. And look at all those straight trim pieces! Prine didn’t have any plans for this thing. We think he was hoping we’d drive it home or something.
