1977 Jeep CJ-7
Ford’s first-generation off-roader has gone from cult classic to mainstream collector.
The Dodge Li'l Red Express set a standard on how to make a great performance truck. All Dodge Li'l Red Express trucks came from the factory painted in Bright Canyon Red in 1978 and Medium Canyon Red in 1979. Every Li'l Red Express was a regular cab Adventurer with a stepside bed.

This 1977 Jeep CJ-7 is a very unique CJ that spent 95% of its life in Oregon. I am the 3rd owner. The miles on this Jeep are believed to be original as it was only used by the 2nd owner for Jeep Club Events like Jeep Jamborees. The previous owner of this jeep over the years, put a lot of time, thought, and pride into making it what you see now. He was very active in Jeep Clubs and everything was done right. This Jeep was not used as a hardcore wheeler (it doesn't even have a winch). The body on this Jeep is all steel and in excellent condition. It is an extremely solid and clean steel body with no evidence of rust or rust repair anywhere. The paint appears to be all original except for the hood which was repainted. The color is Loden Green and it is a great color. The paint on this Jeep still looks excellent but because it is original there are some stone chip spots that have been touched up. This Jeep also has hand painted pinstriping from this era, Laredo decals, chrome grill, and chrome side moldings. The hard top and hard doors are still in excellent condition too. The underside is original and very clean and solid.
The interior is also in excellent condition. The front bucket seats have been recovered but the rear seat and side cushions look like they are still original. The door panels and dash pad are original and really nice. The carpet looks like new. There are dash plaques dating back to 1977 from jeep meets which are pretty cool. The headlights, taillights, brakelights, and turn signals are all working. All of the gauges work and the horn, heat, and wipers work.
Mechanically this Jeep is awesome and it runs and drives excellent. It is very powerful and fun to drive with the mildly built AMC 401 V8 engine. This engine runs strong and has a great exhaust tone. It has an Edelbrock Aluminum Intake, cool vintage Edelbrock aluminum valve covers, a new Sniper-Holley Fuel Injection system, and dual exhaust. The transmission is the T18 4 Speed Manual that shifts nice with a strong clutch. It is mated to the Dana 300 transfer case and the 4WD works like it should. The rear axle is the AMC 20 with 3.73 gears, aftermarket axle shafts, ARB air locker, and an aluminum differential cover. The front axle is the Dana 30 with 3.73 gears. This Jeep has a 2 1/2 Inch Skyjacker all spring lift with heavy duty shackles. This made room for the Aluminum Wheels with 31 Inch BF Goodrich ATs. This jeep also has 4 Wheel Power Disc brakes which is a big upgrade.
