Classic Car Overview
1972 CJ-5, 258, T14 3-Speed (no overdrive), Dana 20 transfer case
$8,000 or best offerWe call this Jeep "9/16's" because we found a 9/16's Champion wrench stuck to the inside of the bumper. That wrench is now proudly displayed on the front bumper. 9/16's has been a project for myself and my daughter - we did all of the work together (except the lift) and we are looking to make space for the next project. We have far more into this project then what we are asking (always the case) - and hoping 9/16's can find a good home. We keep it garaged and take it out a few times a week. With no overdrive we mainly stick to the back roads and it handles surprisingly well considering it has manual steering and drum brakes. Everything works - horn, backup lights, blinkers, clock, etc... because it is all literally new.Current registration and clean title - smog exempt.

Custom lift done by M.I.T. Drivetrain in El Cajon, CA and also had them install a front sway bar, they also tuned the engine once all the upgrades were completed and it runs amazingly smooth.
