For Sale: 1976 Jeep CJ5 in Ft Worth, Texas

Vehicle Description

This 1976 Jeep CJ5 is a hardy V8-powered 4x4 that also has bright paint and other newer investments in the right fundamentals. The result is a coordinated style that puts an emphasis on ruggedness and fun.


The white paint is a newer application that has a bright and memorable style. It doesn't take the time to get too fancy, because after all, who wants to be afraid to fully enjoy their Jeep? This white also makes for a distinct backdrop for all that black, including the steel bumpers and wheels. It's a detailed darkness that includes the hood anchors, hinges, side mirrors, and headlight bezels. You could certainly see this as a blank canvas for a fun wrap or an art project, but it's already kind of nice to be recognizable on the trail and distinct when running through town.


This CJ was built for the outdoor lifestyle, and so all the black goes well with the accents of the exterior. More importantly, there have been the right investments for robustness. The seats are newer pieces done in durable vinyl, and the front has high-back buckets for added comfort on the trail. There are also nice additions like a proper steel roll bar and the tub is full Rhino Lined for easy use. There's even a marine amplifier under the driver's seat so you can plug in your phone or other music device for the right soundtrack to go exploring. You'll also appreciate how this knows how to deliver the classic Jeep driving experience. It includes the thin grip of the dual-spoke steering wheel, the confident action of the three-speed manual transmission, and classic dash with a large speedo at the center of it all.


Jeep's 304 cubic-inch V8 has an awesome-looking bright blue in the engine bay. You can tell the inner walls and motor received a nice respray recently. And everything from the plug wires to the master cylinder looks fresh. Just like the exterior, it's not about being a fancy poser, but it's attractive, clean, and tidy so that you can do your maintenance and modifications with ease. And upgrading is what the CJ life is all about. This robust powerhouse can be dialed in to get stronger or smoother with just some weekend tinkering. And there's a whole host of easy-to-install components - from carburetors to air compressors. So you really get to make this your personal machine. And at the heart of it all is rugged Jeep construction that gives you the true go-anywhere spirit. That's backed up by a proper two-speed 4x4 transfer case, good ground clearance, and deep tread on newer off-road tires.


This CJ sees the works in black and white. Some people just don't get it. But if you understand exactly why a V8-powered and fully-open Jeep is instantly appealing, call today!
