Classic Car Overview

1981 Jeep CJ5 The call of the wild, the great outdoors, into the great wide open, getting a little mud on the tires, all representative of this 1981 CJ which has undergone a partial restoration with nice paint, a black bikini top, and a new interior. It can now take you anywhere, anytime, in any weather. You decide, the wild is your oyster...(sic.) Due to modifications of the emissions control devices installed by the manufacturer, please check your local, state, and federal laws to determine if this vehicle is applicable for use on public highways in your area. Exterior All straight and turn, all tricked out with extra LED lighting, a tubular off road front bumper, a newer Bikini top, 15-inch glossy black wheels and Goodyear tires in the form of 35x12.5R15LT mudders including the BF Goodrich spare. The light blue painted steel is all good with just a few areas of bubbling, prior body repairs, and just a few war scars, but they are minor. A black bikini top is on to protect you and your passengers from the elements, although without doors you may get a little wet or even sunburnt. Black lightweight plastic fenders are bolted onto the blue body and keep the mudslinging to a minimum and in back, a hitch mount is on the tubular bumper with the full size spare mounted above on a swing out mount allowing access to the small rear storage area. We are hearing the call of the wild! Wahoooo wahoooo.... wahoooo whaooo whaooo! (Think Mandalorian) Interior Since I fall into the slightly portly category and also have bad knees, I donned my stepladder for the climb into the interior. Speaking of which, as we slip inside on the new high back vinyl buckets which are in very nice condition and have integrated headrests. All covered in smooth tan vinyl and a new rear bench seat follows the same motif as the buckets. We note new seat belts for all seating positions as well. As we move forward from this box the floors are finished in black and blue and a trio of the factory 4x4 and transmission shifters reside here just prior to the dash. This dash is finished with a custom brushed aluminum panel with a black padded topper and is peppered with all the essential gauges and then some. Toggles and pulls abound as does labeling for all the controls. In front of the passenger is a chromed steel Jesus bar and a body matching glove box door. Fronting the dash is a Jeep 3 spoke drilled and polished rally steering wheel. Note the front windshield can be lowered for extra versatility. Also, a roll bar has been added just in case you are a bit too ambitious on the vertical climb. Drivetrain Under the flip up externally latched hood is a non original AMC engine in 304ci form. It has a Holley 2-barrel carburetor bolted on and on the back is a 3-speed manual transmission. Way out back is a 3.54 axle courtesy of Dana and a pull of the transfer case level engages the front axle for some serious off-roading. Undercarriage Black paint everywhere for the floor pans with some slight surface rust and some invasive rust to note in the left rear wheelhouse. 4-wheel leaf spring suspension has been treated to new rear springs and shackles with a slight lift installed along with a small body lift provide ample ground clearance for you off road adventures. Disc brakes are reserved for the front and drums are in the rear. Dual exhaust, sans catalytic converters, snakes its way rearward and is equipped with stock replacement style mufflers. Drive-Ability I just love the ingenuity that goes into some of the CJ mods and this one does not disappoint. I climbed up over the threshold with some help from my crack decoder and was off to the test track. Here it did very well as expected, great acceleration, solid bias free panic stopping and good handling. I did go into 4x4 mode, and it worked well, but did not get to actually climb anything! All functions were spot on. Grab your groover, mount the kayak and go exploring, climbing, camping and whatever else we do in the great outdoors. Lets get a little mud on the tires! 1JCBM85A5BT021522 1-USA J-Jeep C-MPV B-151ci Inline 4 Cylinder M-4 Speed Manual 85-CJ5 A-3750# GVWR 5-Check Digit B-1981 T-Toledo, OH Assy Plant 021522-Sequential Unit Number Classic Auto Mall is a 336,000-square foot classic and special interest automobile showroom, featuring over 850 vehicles for sale with showroom space for up to 1,000 vehicles.
