Question: How do you tell if a Jeep is a true Golden Eagle? Henry
Answer: Anymore it seems it may be impossible to tell if a Jeep was a factory Golden Eagle. The VIN numbers never indicated specific features and we have never seen an other special codes that are a part of a Jeep that would indicate it. The original window sticker seems to be the only way of knowing. The bigger question we always have is does it really matter? Jeeps aren’t rare, sought after collector items that require complete authenticity. If you want your Jeep to be a Golden Eagle make it that way. If you are looking to buy one – the fact that it’s a Golden Eagle doesn’t really mean anything. They package was mostly appearance.
