The very first CJ prototype was introduced in 1944 by Willys, and the same basic vehicle stayed in production through seven variants and three corporate owners until 1986. A Variant of the CJ is still in production today under the Chrysler Corporation and at that time the CJ name was replaced by the Wrangler. The CJ or civilian Jeep became famous for their durability and ruggedness in during war-time operations and this is why the company immediately began production on the jeeps for civilian use at the end of WWII. Although the look of the Jeep has remained close to that of its first off the line almost 70 years ago, they have had and were built for numerous purposes from farm use to that of municipalities. They also became famous amongst ranchers, hunters, and off-road enthusiasts.
GR Auto Gallery is pleased to present this 1977 AMC Jeep CJ5, starting with the full steel body which is great shape and believed to have not been replaced and is in a fantastic Wandabase Silver and according to the owner was done recently and is in great shape. The Black Bestop Tiger top was newly added and looks to be in near perfect condition, this also comes with the matching bikini top. All of the bumpers and even the doors look to be great shape outside of some minor scrapes. Inside the Jeep is where this one is set apart, the custom black leather Rugged Ridge seats in the front and back as well as like-new black carpet. The dash has lots of upgrades as well, a Speedhut CJ GPS speedometer and instrument cluster as well as a RetroSound stereo with Bluetooth and satellite capabilities the sound system has 6x9s in the back and highs in the dashboard. The engine is the biggest for that era CJ5 in the 5.0L 304ci V8 with a 3-speed manual. The engine had some improvements done to which include new headers and exhaust system as well as an Edelbrock intake and Spectre air cleaner. This Jeep also has had the front disc brake conversion done to it and stops on a dime. All of the work done to the Jeep has receipts and paperwork to go along with it, this is great looking and running Jeep which as always holds the tests of time.
