Putting my 1979 Jeep CJ-5 up for sale. This rare CJ5 has a HURST 4 speed shifter & California based since new without rust damage. Original AMC V8 304 engine, 4 speed manual, Dana 30 transfer case. The Jeep is orange with custom vinyl graphics. The paint is good, however some spots aren't as reflective since the clear coat has become thin with age. I planned on painting it, but figured I would give the next owner the option to pick there own color and design.
I am technically the third owner of this CJ. Bought it as a project to restore this summer, but a crazy work schedule and traveling have kept me from working on it. Therefore I am selling it in hopes that someone will make my dream a reality. This CJ is an absolute blast to drive! When you park it, expect car enthusiasts and others to come ask you about it. ***To clarify a question sent to me asking "Is the Jeep operable?" The answer is: YES, fully functional mechanically. Starts up no problem, Tranny is fine, drivetrain is fine.**
Performance Modifications:- Hooker Headers (long tube)- Holly 4bbl Carb- Edelbrock Valve covers- Edelbrok Torker Manifold- McLeod Performance Clutch- Rough Country Suspension- Rancho RS5000 & 7000 Shocks- Upgraded Fuel Cell- Hurst Short Shifter- Hunsaker Race seats- Stainless Steel Brake Lines- Jeep "Family" Roll bars- Centerline Rims- TrueTracs- K&N Air Filter- 5x Brand New ProComp Mud Terrain tires- Upgraded fuel system & Hi-flo Fuel Pump- KC Hilites 4x w/ light bar. (Currently removed to allow Jeep to fit in my garage, but are included with the sale.)- New Locking gas cap- Factory Power Steering- Tachometer- T-18 4 Speed tranny
-- Things to note:
Known problems:- Its a performance Jeep, it has no Catalytic Converters. So if you live in an emissions monitored state or county you'll need to put cats on it, or register it in another state.- The speedometer works when it wants to. From my findings I think one of the "teeth" is broken on the spine. Its a $30 part, and fairly easy to swap out, depending on our mechanical skills.- The temp gauge does not move, but when you put a current to it, it moves as designed. So the coolant temp sensor will need to be replaced $24.99 autozone.- Horn button is missing from steering wheel, therefore there is no horn. I was planning on replacing the wheel with another one, but figured I would let the next owner decide what they want to do.
- Oil was replaced 50 miles ago, Castrol 10w-30 w/ Fram filter.- New tail lights installed.- Due to the "Family" roll bars, the parking brake was removed by the previous owner. I have sourced all the parts to put it back in, and am including them with the Jeep.- A CB antenna mount is also being included, if you decide to put a CB in it.- Side mirror arms in chrome are also being included, should you prefer a chrome look.- The Jeep has a clean title. California Jeep all its life. I registered it to my other home in South Dakota, however please do not be confused the vehicle is located in San Pedro, California.
