For Sale: 1981 Jeep CJ5 in Ft Worth, Texas

Vehicle Description

This 1981 Jeep CJ5 is a sharp-looking classic 4x4 with low ownership and a nice restoration story that makes it desirable. It makes for the right mix of sharp style and true usefulness that's part of an ideal classic Jeep.

We are told this is a two-owner Jeep, and this story is the cornerstone of this CJ's appeal. It has a long-term first owner for 35 years, and then the second owner used the last seven years making solid investments to make sure it's an ideal mix of looking good while also being ready to tackle Mother Nature. It starts with a respray of the white paint. This later application retains a clean appearance and good gloss that glows in the sunshine. This is also a good backdrop for the comprehensive blue Renegade upgraded graphics package. Plus, a lot of what makes this so stylish also makes it a better off-roader. This includes the roof spotlights, lifted suspension, and color-matched beadlock wheels (including the full-size spare.) There's even a comprehensive contrasting black Rhino Liner front bumper, Renegade fender flares, and full side steps. The bikini top and soft doors also complement the look when in place.

The color theme switched inside where black is the main color, while white is used for accents. Not only does this look quite clean, but it's also ready for the outdoor lifestyle. That means liner paint on the floor, newer seat covers in durable vinyl, and a proper roll bar. The high-back front bucket seats, updated steering wheel on a tilt column, a newer gauge cluster, and floor shifter, with piston top make for a good driver's feeling. Plus, the center console not only has cup holders, but it also can act as a lock box for your essentials in case you need to park in the middle of downtown.

Under the hood is the 258 cubic-inch inline-six. It has a nice look that reminds you of the more recent investment in the last few years. We're not talking car-show glamour muscles, but rather just clean and confident, and that's what you want in a useful Jeep. It fires up eagerly and warms up to be a hardy powerhouse. You get proper control over this motor with the four-speed manual transmission. The two-speed transfer case makes for a proper 4x4. And features like Rhino Liner paint underneath and Goodyear Wrangler tires make for a more robust off-road experience. Plus, power steering, power brakes, and front discs are great for anywhere you want to go - no matter in town or the middle of nowhere.

Complete with a handful of restoration photos, this is a sharp, capable, and upgraded CJ. Call today!!!
