BRAND NEW A/C, UPGRADED W/ CORRECT 304CI V8, REMOVEABLE HARDTOP, LAREDO
You've always wanted a Jeep, and this 1983 Jeep CJ7 Laredo is finished exactly the way you would have done it yourself. V8 engine, heavy-duty off-road equipment, upgraded interior, and niceties such as A/C and a powerful stereo all make this one of the most desirable CJs we've ever offered.
If there's one thing we've learned in the past few years, it's that CJ7s are red hot in the market. They're not on everyone's radar, but we sell every single CJ7 we can get our hands on, and I would expect this one to be no different. The tan paint is in excellent condition, most likely repainted in the not-too-distant past simply because it's way too nice to be 30 years old. But that isn't to say it doesn't look authentic, because in addition to the high-gloss finish, there are correct stripes and 'LAREDO' decals on the sides of the hood, all of which take you right back to the funky, fun-loving '80s. Big black rubber fender flares give the CJ a wide-shouldered look and helps cover the large-by-huge tires underneath and for off-roading, having a big Warn winch on the front bumper is reassuring. There are also tubular steps along with a big spare tire mount out back, so you've got the essentials for both daily driving and weekend fun. Nice chrome bumpers, a shiny grille, and a pair of off-road lights add to the visual fun.
The brown interior is relatively new and in outstanding condition, showing virtually no wear. The seat covers are reproductions of the originals and look great and unlike many of its siblings, this CJ is a bit more civilized and uses carpets on the floor instead of rubber mats. There's a locking center console for a bit of security in the open-topped Jeep, and upgrades such as A/C and an AM/FM/CD stereo system mean that you can drive this Jeep every day without complaint. A column-shifted automatic transmission is joined by the lever for the 2-speed transfer case on the floor and the sporty leather-wrapped steering wheel is a welcome bit of luxury. It includes a contrasting brown hardtop and painted steel doors, so inclement weather is never a problem in this awesome CJ.
Originally powered by a six, this CJ7 now offers more power in the form of a correct AMC 304 cubic inch V8. It fits like it was born in there and it's pretty much the way the factory would have done it, including a heavy-duty air cleaner and an HEI ignition system. There's even corporate blue engine enamel on the block itself. Power steering and brakes are another bonus that helps with both daily driving and off-roading, and the A/C system is brand new and uses R134a refrigerant inside. The 3-speed automatic transmission and all the 4-wheel-drive hardware are in good order and it's surprisingly civil on the street, rolling with a pleasant V8 burble from the single tailpipe. It's unrestored underneath, but there's plenty of evidence of proper maintenance, ranging from the upgraded shocks to new bushings in the springs. Flashy chrome wheels are a very sporty look and carry giant 31x10.50-15 BFGoodrich All-Terrain T/A radials.
This is one of those Jeeps that does everything well, and as a CJ7, it's at the very top of the desirability chart. Have a look at the truck, then the price, and you'll see that this is one heck of a bargain. Call today!
