For Sale: 1979 Jeep CJ5 in Lavergne, Tennessee

Vehicle Description

The strong V8, tall 4x4 prowess, and the right investments for fun and flair all make this 1979 Jeep CJ5 quite a nice package.

Jeeps are made to go you and have fun, and this one seems to understand that well. The brown paint has a nice sleekness and gloss. On top of that is a sunburst-style pinstriping package. You can remove this artistry, but we like how it goes with the paint to deliver the kind of distinct style that looks good rolling through town on a sunny Sunday. And you'll also never accuse this of being a vanity machine. There are plenty of darker details, like the fender flares, tubular steel rear bumper, and tubular steel front bumper with brush guard. These show off the beefy features that remind you this is a robust 4x4. There's even a newer soft top and doors that tell you the right tone of this CJ... it's quite functional but looks good while doing everything.

The interior is clean, complete, and quite functional at its heart. It has the right touch of retro-cool everywhere from the low-back front seats to the nob-style Clarion radio. But it also has the right useful upgrades like a good carpet kit and a cup holder center console. The full roll cage adds strength and security. And you have an overall well-done driving setup with upgrades like a Hurst floor shifter and a column-mounted SunPro tach.

Under this hood is the Jeep/AMC 304 cubic-inch V8. This is a torque master, and so it delivers the kind of peak-crawling muscle you want in a Jeep. The engine bay has a clean and stock style that just upgraded the right pieces you really want. So the V8 inhales deeper with an Edelbrock four-barrel carburetor, and an aluminum radiator helps keep it all running cool. They make for a strong-running powerhouse, and the three-speed manual transmission lets you take control over it all. This is truly off-road ready with the two-speed 4x4 transfer case and Dayton Widetrack Baja tires on bright 15-inch American Racing alloys. Plus, tight manual steering and front disc brakes give you a confident feeling behind the wheel.

This is the robust Jeep reputation you love with added style and V8 power you don't often get elsewhere. So don't let this one slip away. Call today!!!
