1978 Jeep CJ Golden Eagle

This Jeep was for hanging around a buddies garage and I convinced him to sell it to me. It's the rarest of all Jeeps, as not only is it a LEVIS Denim Edition, it's the Golden Eagle. All the paint and decals are original and in good shape. There are many Golden Eagles out there, but most are clones, or at best there is no way to prove that they are original Golden Eagles. This one has all the original paint and decals and is 100% authentic. To top it off, it has the ultra-rare heavy duty T-18 transmission, power steering, solid brakes working tachometer and the clock. The Denim Edition is just amazing - the dash and rear seat are in great shape. The front seats were taken out long ago. It's been upgraded to an ARB air powered locker in the rear of the AMC 20 housing and has a good Warn Winch up front. The only non-original component are the Bestop front seats. This Jeep still retains the original Golden Eagle rims - ALL FIVE!It's got the desireable powerful and perfectly tuned, 304 V8, a smooth and easy T18 - 4 speed manual, zero rust, drives like a dream at any reasonable speed. It's got good power brakes and steering. The dash is unmolested and has original radio (uncut) mounting locations intact. It has an appropriate 3" lift. It's smogged for California drivers. The title is clean and ready to go. This Jeep needs absolutely nothing to be a daily driver. Any issues with the driveability have been taken care of and it's ready for another wonderful, pampered life. I can arrange to show the Jeep. It's based in Sacramento California.
