Hi Folks. Up for sale is a 95% original 1983 4WD Jeep CJ-7 Renegade with 87,819 original miles that has a clear title and never been in an accident. It's got a 5-speed manual transmission with the original, unmolested 4.2 liter engine. The Jeep was purchased from an elderly gentleman who was the second owner since 1986, and he only put it up for sale because of his declining health. The Jeep has several tasteful upgrades, which includes a heavy-duty transmission, three-core radiator, Flowmaster, and Rhino Lining throughout the tub and hood. It also received a very ambitious paint job with inlaid decals/graphics that feel just short of perfect. There are a few other upgrades that'll be discernable to a CJ-7 aficionado. The mechanic who performed the pre-purchase inspection on the Jeep said that "no expense was spared" and that it could "easily be driven across the country, and back." I'm not a mechanic, but the Jeep runs and sounds like it just came off the showroom floor. It gets compliments from young and old alike.
The Jeep includes three tops (fiberglass hard-top with doors,
bikini vinyl top with doors, and full vinyl top with doors).
The Jeep was shipped with the hard-top on and was taken off
immediately after its arrival. The hard-top incurred some
very minor surface scuffs during the transport, but I never got
around to touching up or repainting it altogether. The Jeep
is by no means a garage queen, but it wasn't meant to be. The
interior is an 8.5 or 9.0 (out of 10) and there are no cracks in
the dash or rips in the seats (though there are two very, very
small scuffs to random places on both the front seats).
Seat-covers were only taken off to take photos. The
dash was cut for the stereo, which was upgraded to a RetroSound
Classic, and the hard-doors were cut for two of the six speakers.
It also has an amplifier. Everything works as it
should, including the cruise control, interior light, lighter, and
I'm ABSOULUTELY not in any hurry to sell the Jeep, as its value increases as time goes by. The first person who gives me $17,500 gets it. If you've made it this far, I'm sure you're aware that there are very few Jeeps in this condition with so few miles (average of 2,600 miles per year). The previous owner made the various upgrades over 30+ years he owned it with function in mind. The Jeep could easily be a daily driver or a second vehicle for your mountain cabin.
Additional photos can be taken upon request.

Wrangler is one of few modern vehicles that can put a smile on your face and transport not only your body, but your mind.
The four-door Jeep Wrangler is such a brilliant product, combining the freedom and joy of the venerable CJ with the practicality of a crossover SUV.
