Under this hood is the Jeep/AMC 304 cubic-inch V8 engine that was always considered a torque master for crawling muscle off road or on the sand that you want in a Jeep.

The engine bay has a clean style that has just the upgraded pieces you really want. The V8 inhales deeper with an Edelbrock chrome open element air cleaner, has a modified distributor electronics system and spark plug wires, air conditioning, power brakes, with the rest of the engine and engine compartment looking stock and original.

That makes for a strong-running Jeep with the 3-speed manual transmission that lets you take control over the 4x4 transfer case and Corsa All Terrain XL tires on the chrome mag wheels.


The restored interior is just as Jeep intended it and very clean, complete, and quite functional with the high-back front seats and matching rear seats and door panels, air conditioning, black sport steering wheel, blue seatbelts, black mats, full Jeep gauges in the restored dash, chrome passenger grab handle, stereo radio, cup holder center console, full roll cage that adds strength and security, floor shifters, and covered by a complete black top including doors.


Bright Red paint always looks good on a Jeep, and this one is no exception. The paint is nice and is set-off by all the black attributes including the black front and rear bumpers, dual mirrors, black fiberglass fender flares, and that removable black soft-top.


Whether you want a daily driver, off-roader, or a beach cruiser, this 1979 Restored Jeep CJ5 was built to handle it all, and it does it so well.

This is the restored Jeep you will love with the Jeep style and V8 power you don't often get elsewhere. So don't let this one slip away.
