1978 Jeep CJ CJ 5

First let me say I will be trying to describe this jeep to the best of my ability, y son and I bought this together ( he wanted a jeep for week end driving ) now his attention has turned to graduate school. We bought this jeep looking just as it is with a few things added. 1978 Jeep CJ 5 with a 304 V-8, speed. This jeep looks awesome, uns great dependable and drives great. This is not a frame off restored nor am I a mechanic but it is a very nice solid jeep with no rust or patch places anywhere, ard to find one that is not eat up with rust or that has not been hacked up. The jeep its self is super solid with no rust, ll steel I would refer to this thing as never been off road to any degree, t is just to clean from top to bottom and has been preserved super nice, have taken it to a couple local car shows and I have gotten great reviews. The motor was rebuilt by the previous owner and has about 6,000 miles on it. The odometer reads 42,547 which I'm sure has rolled over. It has angle plug heads and 4 barrelcarburetor with HEI Distributor. It runs very strong we have both took week end trips of 6-8 hours with no problems and is dependable andmechanically sound.I have had it in four wheel drive here at home to test it and it works as it should. It had been repainted when I bought it as well, aint looks great you will how ever notice in the pictures the hood has a couple of spots that did not turn out perfect, ot eye bruising but wanted to point them out. The rest of the body is great with no apparent repairs. It has a new exhaust system, believe cherry bomb exhaust coming out to the back of the jeep, ounds great. I have done some rewiring under the hood andunderneath, had found some frail wiring so I replace it, s well I installed a kill switch to kill all power at the battery for safe storage. All the lights and signals work. It has a GM tilt column. The speed odometer does work but most likely needs a new speed cable as the speed is off. The jeep drives great and like it should, did put a new steering box on as well. The brakes work as they should with no problems stopping the jeep. The floors are solid, teel with no problems. The seats are a racing type with seat belts the seat covers looks fine to me but the buyer may choose new covers. I installed a new GT steering wheel that looks good. The tires are newer with little wear. Underneath the jeep is clean as well with no rust very solid and again appears to never been off road type jeep. The jeep has a nice stance with no lift of any kind. Now for things I would consider that will need to be finished or fixed. The gas andtemperature Gage are not working, he radio has no speakers and is not hooked up, he heater does not work nor are the cables hooked up. It does have a soft top that comes with the jeep. The motor does not use or leak oil but underneath at the bell housing there is a small leak coming from inside the housing which is just a seal, nd when sitting leaves a spot on my garage floor not to the degree where it needs attention. We looked for a Jeep a long time before we got this one, was not a fan of the 4 or 6cylinders and leaned for the classic. Again a super solid steel Old School Jeep that is in great condition, o rust and all steel. I do have a clean Tennessee title in my name. Once payment is received I will make the jeepavailable for transport. I'm relisting my jeep due to a non paying buyer my reserve is $8,500.00. Please have your funds arranged before biding.
