Fake Jambos

These Jeeps have been represented as Jambos, but 82jambo.com does not believe they are true Jambos. If you are thinking of buying a Jambo, you should know that the dash plaques have been for sale on eBay. We believe these are from parted out Jambos or from overstock that AMC produced at the time.

Number Owner Location Notes
98 unknown  unknown This Jambo was for sale. The owner claimed it was a '79 CJ5, but it had a a #98 dash plaque. The tub is definitely a CJ5 as  you can see from the doors. (3/3/09)
1083 unknown unknown This dash plaque was found on a Scrambler. This was discussed on www.cj-8.com. We were never able to obtain pictures. (3/15/09)

Jambo Leads

Yaseeen Ali has heard of another Jambo in Pakistan and one in Spain.
