1980 Jeep CJ7 bought three years ago. Somebody else built it years
ago. I have refreshed, rebuilt and changed a lot of things on it.
The engine is a 4.2L straight six out of an '82 with a Holley
carburetor. It runs fine. I have not had it apart other than
ignition tune up, new water pump, replaced the valve cover and
other small refreshes. When I bought this Jeep it had an automatic
transmission. I changed that out for a Borg Warner T150. I rebuilt
that this winter with new bearings, seals, gaskets and synchros.
The clutch was new when I did the swap. It now has only a few
thousand miles on it. The body is all steel. The tub was replaced
at some time. It appears to be mid 90s. There is no real difference
between CJ and YJ tubs other than a couple holes for things like
clutch master cylinder and dome light switches. It does have the CJ
drop tailgate. The front fenders are un-repaired three piece. I am
not sure when they went from 3 to 2 piece but I think it's kind of
cool to have the old school seam down the middle of the fender.
Window frame and front grille are steel and rust free. The paint
job is OK. I have seen better and worse. If you watch the YouTube
walk around you will get an idea of what to expect. I mostly drive
it doors off and bikini topped. I have a full Best Top top and rust
free half doors. I also have a rear seat that I very rarely use.The
gas gauge doesn't work. All the lights and switches and wipers and
such work except the defroster. There is no radio. There are 6'x9'
speakers in the rear tuffy boxes. 8,000 pound winch includes a
remote and works great. Please Note The Following **Vehicle
