1980 Jeep CJ

This Jeep CJ7 runs and sounds great! Equipped with the powerful V8 engine with headers and a Holly carb with side pipes. Way more macho than the 6 cylinder!Drivesreal good on the road too.Lots of get up and go. Was told the engine was rebuilt by previous owner a couple years ago and it does seem like it has been. Doesnt smoke, stall or overheat. Equipped with the 4 speed manual trans (3 forward and reverse) and it does shift well. Good clutch. Power steering. Modern CD/USB player. Four wheel drive and hubs works good. The paint is still glossy and the body is straight but it does have agood bitof rust bubblesand a couple patched spots as well. Floor pans are solid. The interior is rhino lined. 33x12.50R15 BFG A/T tires with excellent tread. Brand new radiator just installed. Newer battery andbrake pads. Working lights, wipers, speedo, tach, oil pressure, coolant temp and battery voltage gauges. Comes with hardtop and almost new bimini top. workinghardtop hatchand tailgate, full doors and rear seat. Also has a hitch with 2" receiver.
