Classic Car Overview
Putting up my project 1978 CJ7 to see if it sells. Bought this past summer and had Phipps Auto in Harwood, MD go through it with a fine tooth comb at the beginning of the fall to make it drive-able and safe on the road. Invested almost $8000 in parts and labor on top of what I payed for it. Really fun Jeep and I hope to keep it and finish the build, but I could use the money for some other things so I'll see if it sells for what it's worth. If not, I'll keep it. Perks: 304 AMC V8 with 3 speed manual. 4 Inch Suspension Lift 35'' Mickey Thompson with less than 200 Miles on them ($3000) Corbeau Racing Seats ($650) Runs really well. Motor, transmission, steering, suspension all gone through to update, repair, replace, etc at Phipps Auto. Little to no rust on frame. Solid. Have wheel spacers I haven't put on yet to add stability and offset the lift. I have replacement floor pans. Low miles on odometer but can't confirm original miles but it does run like it only has 35000 on it. .
Tub is shot but you won't fall through. Basically the only reason it will not pass inspection. It's tagged as historic right now. Needs replaced.
Gas gauge doesn't work (easy replacement)
Manual steering is challenging. Needs upgraded to power steering.
I can send pictures of the VIN, interior, motor, and repairs no problem. Just message me.
All in all, fun ass Jeep, lot's of power and torque. Nothing around like it. Ton's of compliments and passing offers on it for as little as I drive it (Audi has seat warmers so the Jeep sits).
Make me an offer. If it's a stupid offer, don't expect a response.
