This 1979 Jeep CJ5 Renegade has some terrific classic Jeep style,
good features, and of course, true 4x4 ability. So it makes for a
great vintage SUV offered for a great price.
The color theme looks good on this Jeep. A deep blue is a good Jeep
color. And the classic Renegade decals in the classic rainbow style
make this classic look like it stepped right out of Mork and Mindy.
This has the right Renegade details, like fender flares and a roll
bar. Plus, the polished steel bumpers and wheels have a good look
while adding to the utility. It's all part of an overall style
that's appealing but you can also tell is always ready to hit the
The step rails make it easier to hop up and in. The full blue on
the inside looks good against the exterior, that's what you want on
a CJ because these were meant to be open to the world. This has the
right features you want, like seatbelts for the bucket seats. The
center console locks in case you need to run into the shop and want
to leave anything behind. And the cup holders make it easy to carry
a hot beverage on a cold day. The heat/defrost also makes it nicer
on those early morning drives out to the campsite. There are even
provisions for air conditioning, but it will need servicing to blow
cold again. This Jeep also has the right driver-oriented style with
a grippy three-spoke steering wheel, a tilt column, and a full
gauge package with a handy tach.
Under the hood is a mainstay for Jeep fans. The 258 cubic-inch
inline-six is beloved for its hardy nature. The powerhouse looks
quite honest with its stock presentation. It fires up readily, and
the three-speed manual transmission gives you good control and
flexibility. Delivering on this off-road stature is the two-speed
4x4 transfer case that feeds two beefy axles. And there are also
Toyo Open Country tires. But the appeal of a classic Jeep is more
than just about getting deeper into nature. When it's time to just
enjoy the pavement, this has the right anytime driving features,
like power steering, power brakes, and front discs.
This CJ5 has a very vintage style that also has serious off-road
ready appeal. And since you know how expensive these classic CJs
are getting, you know this is a heck of a deal. Call today!!!
