Up for grabs is a beautiful 1978 CJ7 jeep that has been restored with a lot of love and attention. There is over $25,000 into the restoration of this vehicle.
Hagerty recently shared an article on how the CJ7s of these years were showing no signs of slowing down when it comes to increasing in value. Many similar vehicles have been sold above asking price at auction over the past few months. These vehicles have had dramatic value increases over the last six months making a good one highly desirable! Look no further.

This 1978 CJ7 has a rebuilt V8 304 engine with less than 6000 miles on the rebuilt engine. The Jeep is automatic but was originally a manual transmission. The clutch pedal is still there, but no longer in use. It has a new fiberglass tub with stainless fasteners and custom stainless dash and diamond corner panels. This vehicle is a classic but also a head turner.
The stereo system has been built-in (new $200 Sony Bluetooth/iPhone compatible CD player added)....all custom made. The seats even have CJ embossed in them. It has some cool LED lights in the custom roll bar and speakers built in as well.
The rear seat has recently been upgraded with a brand new bestop trailmax seat with higher headrests. I've also recently added a brand-new original gas cap and replica manual. Brand new Fender Flares recently installed.
It comes with a brand new soft cover, soft doors, and unused valve covers. It also comes with a windshield frame replacement should you need it.
The Jeep runs flawlessly.
There are a few minor paint issues with a touch-up paint that was used, that wasn't a perfect match. I've tried to include those pictures.
To summarize, a classic, unique, CJ7 that will continue to appreciate in value, and is already worth more than the asking price.
Please contact us for a private viewing; we live 45 minutes from the Detroit-Windsor border. I can easily assist in arranging transportation for the vehicle.
Trucks and SUVs dominate the top ranks of the Hagerty Vehicle Rating, taking the top five spots with the 1966-77 Ford Bronco dethroning the 1976-86 Jeep CJ-7 from the No.1 spot.
If you watched the Super Bowl, you probably took note of the evocative and star-studded 60-second Jeep commercial during the half time break.
