For Sale: 1978 Jeep CJ5 in Lutz, Florida

Vehicle Description

A good Jeep is as dependable and rugged as your favorite pair of Levi's jeans. In the 1970s Jeep/AMC really took that to heart with the special Levi's interior. This restored 1978 Jeep CJ5 pays tribute to that spirit while also giving you slick paint, Renegade style, and V8 power.


With less than 250 miles on this Jeep since its restoration, this one has quite a radiant style. After all, you have the bright white paint and even brighter chrome grille. It makes for a terrific look to a classic cruising Jeep. But if you're looking to go off-road, it might just be the darker pieces you like the best. The black 15-inch wheels and Renegade fender flares make it easy to have those beefy off-road tires. You even have a full-size one on the rear's swing-away hitch. And while you're back there, don't forget to notice the upgraded steel bumper with tow hooks and a trailer hitch.


This Jeep was made to be open to the world. After all, the upgrade to Levi's jeans style upholstery is a true attention-grabber. And the blue of the jeans goes well with the exterior's Renegade stripe package. Because this is a fresh restoration, this centerpiece looks new and terrific. The materials are even quite durable and washable - exactly what you want in a Jeep. There are thoughtful details, like a lockbox center console, cup holders, a padded roll bar, and liner paint for the whole floor. And it's a nice driver with features you don't always get, like adjustable front bucket seats, a Renegade-correct tach, and a tilt steering column.


Under the hood is the Jeep/AMC 304 cubic-inch V8. While this motor is known for its robustness, the clean style here lets you know it can be quite attractive, too. And all the freshness means it's also a strong runner. You take full control with the three-speed manual transmission. Plus, power steering, power brakes, front discs, and an overall solid driving feel make this great for cruising around town. Even the undercarriage shows a freshness that reminds you how few miles are on the restoration. So while this is quite a capable off-roading 4x4, it looks like you'd be the first one to get it muddy since its big investment.


The distinct Levi's style on a freshly restored CJ makes for a distinct and premium appearance. So if you're looking for a 4x4 that goes anywhere and is great to show off everywhere, call today!
