For Sale: 1985 Jeep CJ7 in Lithia Springs, Georgia

Vehicle Description

This rather intense-looking 1985 Jeep CJ7 Renegade has the right hardware but might just be too nice to go off road. It's a stock-height, well-maintained, nicely restored off-roader that delivers on the CJ's promise of go-anywhere utility. The fact that it looks great is only icing on the cake!

The sharp yellow paint looks industrial-strength on the Jeep's squared-off bodywork, but it also gives it a very up-to-date look today. As one of the most recognizable icons in the motoring world, the CJ7 has certainly earned its status, but this one really is nicer than most. The paint looks fresh with only very minor signs of use, and the metal underneath remains in very good shape. Fit and finish are very solid for a CJ, and certainly worlds better than those that have been abused off-roading. Black tubular bumpers and step-bars enhance the no-nonsense look and offer some additional protection for when the going gets rough, along with a chrome grille inlay and dual auxiliary lights. The Renegade decals were recently applied and break up the yellow paint just enough to provide a clean, symmetrical presentation. We've always loved the all-business Jeeps with their big side mirrors, stylish fender flares, and rear-mounted tires, and this one ties it all together quite neatly.

Vinyl black bucket seats are brand new and ready to stand up to the elements, and there's professionally installed heavy duty spray-in bedliner covering the floorboard that you can hose out after a day in the dirt. The dash is full of clear original gauges, all operable and accurate as the day they left the AMC plant. Other items like the original Jeep steering wheel, new dash pad, and grab bar for the passenger are in equally fantastic condition, and there's a new matching bench seat in back for taking friends with you out on the trail. That appears to be a stock AM/FM/Cassette stereo (a rare find) with round speakers in the dash, a locking center console in between the front seats, and an authentic Jeep cargo box behind the rear seat. Weather protection isn't a concern with a removable, recently bedliner-coated hard-top and soft half-doors, but the adventurer in you will surely want to leave those behind on a sunny day. Alfresco? Try it, you'll love it!

AMC's reliable 258 cubic inch inline-six is the engine you want in your CJ, famous for torque and reliability. With a clean look and plenty of signs of proper maintenance, you know it's a great runner, and aside from some of those maintenance parts, it's quite stock. A recent tune-up means it starts easily and runs like it should, so you don't have to think twice about going somewhere remote. The rare automatic transmission and 2-speed transfer case are supported by fresh shocks all around, and a recent muffler adds a nice throaty rumble. Power steering and front disc brakes make it easy to handle those blacked-out with chrome beauty-ring wheels and 31x10.5x15 Goodyear Wranglers with ease.

A Jeep this clean is something you don't see very often, so if you're looking for a great CJ, you've just found one of the best. Call today!
