Classic Car Overview

PRICE REDUCED!!!!  We are moving this month and need to sell the Jeep before the move. If it is not sold, it will no longer be available here.

This 1978 Jeep CJ5 has been in my family since 1980. The only reason I am selling it is due to medical issues. I had the Jeep professionally and completely restored in 2017-2018. After restoration, it has been covered and stored in a garage when not in use. Since 2019, it has been driven minimally.

The engine is the original 258 AMC inline 6 cylinder. During the restoration process, the engine was rebuilt and only has 168 miles on it. The frame is a refurbished one, and basically everything else is new. Here are some other details: 3 speed manual transmission, 4WD, disc brakes on front and drum brakes on back, 2 inch lift, black soft top and doors, exterior and interior metal is painted red, fiberglass tub is painted black, tan seats (2 in front and bench in back), all new hardware, chrome upgrades, new stereo with adaptors for phone, heavy duty front and rear bumpers, 5 Ironman All Country A/V tires on white rims with pinstripes.
