ACTUAL MILES, ORIGINAL DRIVETRAIN, COMPLETE COSMETIC RESTO, LIFTED, 33'S, 4X4!!!
Imagine yourself behind the wheel of this gorgeous 1984 Jeep CJ7. The sun is shining, you're cruising down a beach somewhere, water splashing out from under the tires, and then you wrap up your perfect day around a beachside campfire with a bunch of friends. OK, well, that's more like a Jeep commercial, but with this gorgeous 4x4, it can also be reality.
Finding a CJ7 that hasn't been beaten to death or left to rust in a driveway somewhere is nearly impossible, which is what makes this one so special. It is shockingly clean inside and out, top and bottom thanks to a comprehensive restoration. Rusty rockers? Nope. Maybe some bubbles around the rear wheel arches? Zero. Instead, it's beautifully refinished with super glossy black paint and new Laredo decals that perfectly capture the spirit of Jeep's most beloved creation. Oh, there are plenty of upgrades, too, including fender flares for the oversized tires, a chrome grille, shiny new bumpers, and even a trailer hitch to make it even more useful if you have other toys to take with you. This Jeep has fun written all over it, but the hardware is hardcore and will take you virtually anywhere you want to go. And it will look flat-out awesome doing it.
Jeep interiors were basic, no frills places from the start, designed to be impervious to the elements and easy to maintain. This one is no exception, although civilization has made some inroads since the first Jeep rolled into battle just before WWII. Wearing fresh black seat covers on high-back buckets, a little water and dirt won't matter; just hose it off and continue on. The floor is protected with textured spray-in bedliner material that's impervious to just about everything, and a custom center console provides a safe place to stow your valuables. The painted steel dash offers a passenger grab handle, as well as an array of round gauges, all of which are fully functional and show bright, crisp markings. The back seat will hold two, and there's a Sony AM/FM/iPod/satellite stereo radio with remote to entertain you once you reach your destination.
Most of these Jeeps used inline-sixes, and the 258 cubic inch powerplant has proven itself time and time again as the right choice. Torquey and smooth, this one offers a Weber carburetor and Holley fuel regulator for ideal throttle response, which can be critical in slippery situations. It's got loads of low-end torque, so performance in the lightweight Jeep is downright impressive and if you know any Jeep guys, they'll tell you how reliable these things really are. Thanks to the 4-speed manual transmission and 2-speed transfer case, it can practically climb walls at little more than idle speeds, making it the perfect off-road companion. An HEI ignition makes it reliable, and a custom exhaust system with a single Flowmaster muffler gives it a nice grumble. A lifted suspension has been fitted, including new shocks, giving it a heavy-duty look that's not just for show, and the undercarriage is one of the cleanest we've ever seen on a vintage Jeep. Four new polished aluminum Mickey Thompson Classic III wheels were installed with giant 33x12.5x15 Firestone off-road tires that look fantastic.
Jeeps have always promised fun in the sun and go-anywhere capability, and few are nicer than this. Call today!
