The Jeep CJ series, an abbreviation of "Civilian Jeep," was introduced by Willy's Overland in 1944. Its popularity was undeniable and quickly became a common sight on roads across the country and abroad. The CJ-5, by far the most iconic iteration of the CJ, was introduced in 1954 and remained in production until 1983. It earned a reputation for being practically unstoppable both in terms of reliability and off-road capabilities. It also holds the unique distinction of the longest production run in Jeep history. This 1977 Jeep CJ-5 was produced by American Motors Corporation and is powered by the venerable AMC 3.8L I6 engine. The straight-6 sends power through a 4-speed manual transmission and a selectable transfer case. This Jeep was originally purchased by the New Haven Register, a local newspaper, who owned the vehicle until 1994 and primarily used it to plow their parking lots during winter months. This CJ-5 comes with a soft top, a hardtop, two sets of doors, a plow mount, and significant documentation from 1994 onwards. It is an excellent driver, with both the body and frame remaining in solid condition.
