For Sale: 1981 Jeep CJ5 in Lavergne, Tennessee

Vehicle Description

This 1981 Jeep CJ5 is quite stealthy in the way it's presented. For example, it has a classic look done in fresh paint. And until you twist the key and hear it growl, people may not suspect the upgraded stroker V8 power under the hood.

This Jeep makes a great first impression. The classic Renegade stripe instantly gives this vintage appeal. Plus, it coordinates with the stripe on top of the hood and dark fender flares. You see it all so well, because the orange is a bold color that was professionaly applied early this year. So it has a fresh radiance. There's also some nice brightwork on the lightweight drilled bumpers, side mirrors, and upgraded Pro Comp Xtreme wheels. It all makes for a very well-presented total package.

A Jeep like this is meant to be open to the world, and so you get more of the tasteful black against the bright orange exterior paint. It's built for an off-road lifestyle with grippy bucket seats up front w/full five-point harnesses, and there's liner paint on the floor for easy clean-up. This one was given an upgraded roll cage that adds strength and added protection for the rear passengers. This upgrade means that the bikini top can now cover all your occupants, too. As good as this one is for everyone, it's also a true driver's machine. You have a tilt steering column, B&M floor shifter, and full AutoMeter auxiliary gauge package, including a large column-mounted tach. So you know there's something special under the hood.

It's always nice to have V8 power in a Jeep, but this one take it to a new level. This is a 406 cubic-inch stroker V8. More than just displacement, it has all the right performance upgrades, like Edelbrock aluminum heads, an Edelbrock four-barrel carburetor, air gap intake, and headers feeding a rumbling dual exhaust. Plus, you have the right supporting component, too, like an Optima red top battery and a large aluminum radiator. It's an extremely powerful package, but it's also extremely streetable. You even have power steering, a three-speed automatic transmission, and front disc brakes. And of course, as a true Jeep, the 4x4 setup means the fun doesn't end when the pavement does.

This is the bold and powerful CJ you've been waiting for. But at a price like this, it won't wait for long. As you can see from the photo of the VIN plate, it has an Arizona re-assigned VIN with a clear title. Call today!!!
