1978 Jeep Renegade CJ-5

I have an above average Jeep CJ-5 Renegade up for sale. It is a driver quality Jeep that has had several thousand dollars and hundreds of hours of labor spent on it. I have a folder full of receipts that will be included in the sale. It is a factory air-conditioning Jeep with all the parts and pieces still on the Jeep. The compressor and belt is still on it. Needs a Freon hose. The Jeep has tilt steering, built in tach and a new clock that both work. It has power steering and power disc brakes. A brand new set of 32x11.50x15 all terrain tires with maybe 20 miles on them. I have Historic tags on it. drives fine after being put back togetherto make sure everything was working as it should. The fuel sending unit is new and the tank has been replaced with new hoses also. All the exterior lights work and mostof the dash lights work. I have a new oil pressure gauge ordered that will go with the Jeep. The list of new items are; Tie rods, Padded dash, Rugged ridge seats, both front and back, with the back being a flip and fold style.floor mats front and back, CD stereo with usb, ipod and mp3 hookups, new pioneer speakers, new glove box, new paint, new decals and pinstripes, new windshield, new weatherstripping, side marker lights, park light lenses, tires, centers, wheel bands, lugs, bikini top, headers, duel side exhaust (sounds really good), spark plugs, oil change with filter using Castrol 10w40 oil, rhino lined interior, spare tire cover, battery, wipers, 4 new Skyjacker shocks. I have all the hardware for a soft-top that's included. I don't have any doors for the Jeep. The frame was perfect on this Jeep with no rust at all. We cleaned it good and painted it with Rustoleum semi-gloss black. The body was really good also with the only rust being in the floor pans. It was a few spots on the passengers side like pin holes and the drivers side had a couple that you could stick the end of a pencil thru.I had a local metal shop cut me 2 patch panels from cardboard templates to repair these two areas. With these panels in place and the rhino lining it looks really good and is solid. The drivers side mirror has a crack. The speed odometer is broken but I have a replacement that will need to be installed. The Jeep does not leak anything. It starts right up, the clutch is strong, all the transfer case, manual hubs, transmission and 4-wheel drive work as they should with no problem. The Jeep has had a lot of money spent on it already, but I am sure the winning offer will find things they don't like or just want tochange and will spend more on it. The Jeep is 38 years old and its not perfect, but its not being priced as a frame of resto. It is a driver quality Jeep that you can get in and ride it and enjoy it as is.Please feel free to ask any questions at all. I check my email daily and will respond promptly. I have tried to include everything as best as I can. Please take a look at my feedback before bidding. I like to keep these old vehicles on the road for folks to enjoy. If you want more specific photos let me know and I will email them to you. With a little more work and time this Jeep will be considered restored. Thanks for looking and good luck bidding.
