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
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!!!
