For Sale: 1980 Jeep CJ5 in Lavergne, Tennessee

Vehicle Description

This 1980 Jeep CJ5 is a one-owner classic that has been given the right investments over the years to be the ideal package for those who want both flair and function. It's the 4x4 with a good shine to get attention around town, and everything from the beefy tires to the big brush guard tells you it never has to take the paved roads to find its way home. So check out all the investments in both style and substance.

The window sticker tells us that the dark brown metallic is factory-correct color, and it gives this 4x4 plenty of immediate appeal. It was resprayed later in life, and on a one-owner machine, it has the right balance of good care but an overall impression makes sure this is a 4x4 that's built for fun. That's part of the real theme of this one. Even the added polished components add to the usefulness as well as the style. For example, the tubular front bumper looks awesome while also giving you a handy bull bar, and there's a trailer hitch welded into the rear one. And there's more brightwork showing off the side exhaust, protecting the rockers, tail lights, and full-size spare on the rear. It's not just chrome components that show this jeep is off-road ready. There are LED headlights and fog lights that can turn night into day out on the trail. And the flared fenders help contain those Dick Cepek wheels and meaty tires. It all makes for a total package that's stylish and absolutely versatile.

Like a good Jeep, you have options for how much you want to be buttoned up. The sale comes with a full soft top, bikini top, windjammer backing, and soft doors. And no matter how you choose to drive this CJ, it is going to provide the proper off-road read experience. The Rugged Ridge high-back front bucket seats have the right bolstering to keep you firmly planted. This one also has a great audio system with an AM/FM/CD stereo w/aux input in the lockable center console, a speaker bar added to the roll bar, and a subwoofer behind the seat. There's an upgraded sports steering wheel on a tilt column, and you have full instrumentation with the large speedo, crisp auxiliary readouts, and a handy tach.

We love the way the tidy motor gives you a powerful take on a classic Jeep powerhouse. This is the classic 4.2L/258ci inline-six. It has been upgraded with an Edelbrock four-barrel carburetor, Offenhauser intake, and a split long tube header package that creates dial side pipes. It means you get to keep the proper robust Jeep heart but with the power and rumble of the ones who did the V8 upgrade. Plus, there are quality supporting components such as an aluminum radiator, Mallory ignition, and a newer alternator. There are even good fundamentals when you check out the plugs, wires, and hoses. The two-speed 4x4 transfer case, good ground clearance, and Mickey Thompson Baja ATZ tires are good for off-road work. Power brakes, front discs, and power steering are good for anytime driving. And the four-speed manual transmission gives you control over it all no matter where you go.

It's hard to find a one-owner CJ these days, and the original window sticker helps tell this one's unique story. It makes for a distinct and capable total package you need to take home. Call today!!!
