For Sale: 1978 Jeep CJ5 in Houston, Texas


Vehicle Description

Model 1978 CJ5 Jeep All vins are matching. Motor was rebuilt and pulled from another 1978 CJ5. Transmission is a 3 speed T-18 and was overhauled a few months ago. Body with frame and all parts were purchased, and Painted by Select jeeps at the beginning of the restore. Paint color is called Hemi Orange. Frame was reconstructed in the front to make the jeep slightly longer, stronger, and track better on and off the road. This Jeep Barely fits in the garage but does, and is kept in my garage 24/7. All the vins match up and are original except for the engine and rear axel.
The Jeep has not been off road since the restore. I love the way these old Jeeps look and I have only driven it around town on pretty days for fun.

Motor is a 350 Chevrolet Small Block. Was rebuilt during the process that started 5 years ago.
Bran new edelbrock carburator.  Jeep never doesn't start.  Runs and sounds beautifully.
Electric fan has been installed in front of the Radiator. The engine cools very well, it sits around 190-200 degrees. The electric fan is on a sensor, and set to come on automatically at 195 and turn off under that.
