For Sale: 1979 Jeep CJ5 in Lutz, Florida

Vehicle Description

We don't see too many 4x4s like this 1979 Jeep CJ5. It has been restored to give you much more of that true classic feeling. But more than just look sharp, you also have plenty of V8 power to make sure this remains a true go-anywhere machine.


The Sundance Orange on this CJ holds close to the original Russet. It gives you that same earth-tone style that looks good out in nature, but now this has just a little extra bright shine that makes a classic fun. We often see these Jeeps lifted with beefy accessories added. And while those are fun (and we can probably show you one of those, too,) this one is attractive for its vintage nature. It has the clean lines of a well-done stock body. It strives to show off the details in the essentials, like the brass Jeep tag on the steel front bumper, and the full-size spare on the rear that has a cover to match the newer soft top. Even the pieces that look like upgrades have a vintage purpose. After all, the Renegade package gives you fender flares and a roll bar.


Because the tan roof looks good against the orange paint, you get similar tones when you take it down. The interior has a good look with a clean color-matched tub, upgraded steering wheel, classic Jeep gauges, and upgraded front bucket seats. You even have some nice extras with an AM/FM digital tuner w/cassette, cup holders, and a lockbox center console.


The engine bay is where this one deviates from stock the most. The AMC 360 V8 was not offered in this series, but it fits under the hood just as easily as its small displacement siblings. And not only do you have a larger motor, but also an Edelbrock four-barrel carburetor and an aluminum intake. It means you have a CJ with an extra hit of power, and there's a nice tune out of the side-exit dual exhaust. A two-speed 4x4 transfer case and newer all-terrain tires on an attractive set of black wheels are nice for off-road work. And three-speed manual transmission gives you proper control over it all. Plus, features like power steering and power brakes are good in all conditions.


Complete with owner's manual, this is the classic CJ style with the right V8 power you want. So don't let this classic and capable 4x4 slip away. Call today!!!
