For Sale: 1985 Jeep CJ7 in Mesa, Arizona

Vehicle Description

A Jeep's ruggedness is its calling card, and so this 1985 CJ7 not only has the go-anywhere 4x4 utility, but also there a ton of upgrades inside and out to make this your new favorite go-anywhere machine.


The fiery red with black trim gives an attention-grabbing first impression. But take a movement to get a closer look. The texture is a dead giveaway that they've made a solid investment in covering this whole CJ in liner paint. So you know this one is ready for Mother Nature's worst punishment. As you look over all the pictures, you're going to spot some great upgrades like the full-size spare on the swing-away mount and beefy tow hoof front & rear. And not only does that black trim look great, but it highlights some very useful features, like the headlight guards, fender flares, and trailer hitch. And since the removable hardtop is finished in black, too, this one looks great even when you're completely enclosed.


As good as this looks with the top on, Jeep life is all about being open to the world. This one really shows that off with the right original pieces mixed with the right upgrades. It starts with the newer Bestop front bucket seats. They have good bolstering for all-day comfort, and they're finished in a weather-resistant nylon. In between is an arm rest center console with cup holders and a lockable storage for your valuables. This secure box is also home to your AM/FM/CD stereo with aux inputs for the most modern music players. Even with these upgrades, you still get that classic Jeep feeling with the center gauge cluster dominated by the large speedo, and the tall gearshift that has a very purposeful action.


Power comes from AMC's 258 cubic-inch inline-six, which is believed to be original to the vehicle. It isn't designed for all-out speed, but the huge torque and bulletproof reliability is exactly what you want - especially on the trail. And when mated to the five-speed manual transmission, you are in firm control to get the best power on-demand. This CJ is always ready for true 4x4 duty with the two-speed transfer case, lifted suspension, new leaf springs, and BF Goodrich All Terrain T/As. Plus, features like power steering and front disc brakes are welcomed addition on or off-road.


This one has been given investments for extra distinction and prowess. It's a great total package that's ready to hit the trail right now. Call today!!!
