Classic Car Overview

This 1981 Jeep CJ7 Laredo seems to get it right where you want it. It has the mean all-black look of a rugged 4x4, an outdoor-ready interior, and a proper Jeep V8 powerhouse under the hood. And as you look at all the details, you can see plenty of little things that make this more distinct and fun on and off-road. The black paint has a decent gloss from respray later in life, and the bright grille and Laredo graphics add the right style. It makes for a good look, but it also retains the good appearance of an authentic Jeep that doesnt bother getting fancy. After all, everything from the high-lift jack on the hood to the full-size spare on the rear looks like its ready for an adventure. But were told this was a garage-kept on-pavement pleasure driver for the past two owners. So while you have the off-road-ready stance of a proper 4x4, you wont find old mud in any hidden creases. And with full hard doors and a new soft top, you have a full midnight attitude that looks good even when this one isnt open to the world. Just like the exterior, the interior is set up to be both robust and attractive. You have two newer high-back bucket seats finished in comfortable but durable vinyl. This useful package includes liner paint on the floor, shoulder belts, and a proper roll bar. Theres even a bikini top for those times when you want to be fully open while keeping the sunshine off your shoulders. And theres a lockbox center console with a nice armrest and a mounting for the Kenwood AM/FM/CD stereo with Bluetooth. This is a well-done drivers setup with a classic steering wheel on a tilt column, a newer speedometer, Laredo-level tach, and functional auxiliary readouts. The 304 cubic-inch motor is an ideal powerplant that combines Jeep-level robustness with V8 muscle. Significant power upgrades like the Edelbrock four-barrel carburetor and Edelbrock Performance intake help the stout V8 breathe. It has the right supporting components like an MSD distributor system upgrade, a newer aluminum radiator, and an optima red top battery. The lifted stance, Dana 300 transfer case, and General Grabber A/T tires make for a proper off-road 4x4 package. But as mentioned before, this one has spent most of its recent years on the pavement. So it also just feels like a solid cruiser with newer motor mounts, power brakes, and front discs. Plus, the four-speed manual transmission is a lot of fun just running around town in 2wd. This CJ7 is distinct, upgraded, loaded, and built to be a cruiser. That makes it a fun V8 classic that knows how to turn heads for all the right reasons. Call now!
