For Sale: 1984 Jeep CJ7 in Lithia Springs, Georgia

Vehicle Description

Before you scoff at the price, take a drive down to your local Jeep dealer and see what a new Wrangler goes for these days. And now understand that even though this Jeep might be listed as a 1984, it's ostensibly new and has been finished to such a high-level it looks like it just drove off the Toledo, OH factory floor. We sell a lot of high-quality CJs, but this freshly restored 1984 Jeep CJ-7 Golden Eagle Tribute might be the best-of-the-best, and that's not faint praise. It looks amazing with a spectacular Olympic White paint job, big lift, and a host of rugged accessories. And thanks to a stout 360 cubic inch V8 and 5-speed manual gearbox, it has performance those killer good-looks.

The bottom line of this beauty is that the builders (a Father-and-Son team that have built some extremely impressive CJ's as their hobby/part-time profession; this is their 5th) took a nice original Jeep and gave it a very high-quality restoration. No AMC product ever fit together this well or had paint that was this deep and glossy, and we rarely see them restored to this level. Finding an all-steel CJ that hasn't been bashed to death on the rocks or eaten alive by the dreaded tinworm is no easy task, yet this heavy-duty CJ-7 shows off it's uber-clean bodywork with pride. Covered in gorgeous Olympic White paint, its days spent playing in the dirt are probably behind it. It's a color perfect for the eclectic Jeep crowd that loves both vintage and modern rigs - not at all bland and nowhere close to outlandish or obnoxious. A "Golden Eagle" and "Levi's" decal package was added for a little extra spice, and when coupled with the black fender flares, black "Jeep" fender emblems, and chrome accessories like the hood hardware, side mirrors, and door hardware, they all add just enough contrast and seem to make the off-white finish glow. Rugged add-ons were fitted, including a heavy-duty polished front bumper cover with a mounted Warn winch just above it, polished side pipes, a padded roll bar, and chrome bumperettes out back. There are no tops or doors but those can be easily added, although a Jeep this nice should never really call for that kind of protection because it's just too darn nice to drive in the rain. It sits up high off the ground to clear most obstacles, and in the rare instance that you might need it, a matching spare tire-and-rim set was mounted on the swing-away rack out back.

Inside, this CJ-7 is almost too nice to take in the dirt, with freshly re-cushioned and re-covered Camel vinyl buckets up front and a matching rear bench, all of which look like they've seen nothing scarier than a dusty pair of jeans in the few miles since this rig was built. Matching tan carpets insulate the tub - an elegant rarity against the usual bedlined floors found in most CJs - and a set of thick, durable Bestop floormats should protect them forever. The steel dash was painted to match the exterior and topped with a tan dash pad and houses a full complement of stock-spec gauges, including a clock to the left of the steering wheel and tachometer to its right - a factory arrangement that denotes an upmarket trim level. A retro-sound stereo was fitted inside the stock dash slot to handle the tunes, all the switches/levers/knobs look to be new, and the 3-spoke Jeep steering wheel at the helm of the cockpit was mounted atop a tilt column to account for driver's of just about any size. Even the shifters for the 5-speed manual and transfer case, respectively, are in excellent condition, and the aforementioned roll cage adds safety, stiffens the body, and is wrapped in a weatherproof liner. Matching carpets in the rear storage area prove that nothing was overlooked, while shoulder belts fore and lapbelts aft show that safety was a priority.

The freshly rebuilt (01/22) 360 V8 is a neat fit inside this CJ's engine bay, and even though it wasn't born with it (the 304 was the biggest V8 ever offered in a CJ), everything sure looks like it belongs. Professionally rebuilt to the tune of $8,800, it's running incredibly well, with only break-in miles registered on the powerful AMC motor. It's clear that the goal was a stock look, and you can see an investment was spent here to get everything dialed in and show-off ready. The engine bay was gutted, cleaned, smoothed, and painted to match the exterior before the engine and accessories went in. The engine itself is beautiful painted in AMC Blue enamel, topped with a set of matching valve covers, a stock-style snorkeled air cleaner, and new components and accessories everywhere you look. A Holley 4-barrel carburetor atop an Edelbrock aluminum intake feeds the powerful small block, and with so few miles on the build, it's running great. With the addition of the big 360 V8, there's now an awesome power-to-weight ratio that genuinely transforms this CJ into an everyday driver, and with power steering and power front disc brakes, you're going to want to take it out a lot. Performance is awe-inspiring, while the soundtrack provided by the Hedman headers that feed into the side-pipe Cherry-bombs is worth the price of admission by itself. A fully rebuilt 5-speed manual transmission is the perfect dance partner and spins the virtually indestructible Dana 44 front and AMC 20 rear differentials geared at 4.11. A giant aluminum radiator keeps temperatures at bay, and you'll note that the undercarriage is incredibly detailed and essentially spotless, with fresh paint and components everywhere you look. ProComp wheels always look great, especially wrapped in fat 33x12.5-15 BFGoodrich M/Ts that finish the look perfectly.

If you're looking for a vintage Jeep that's essentially new in every way, this is the CJ-7 for you. Call today!
