258 CI - Inline 6
5 Speed Manual
258CI INLINE 6, 5 SPEED MANUAL, SOFT TOP & DOORS, NICE PAINT, VERY CLEAN CJ7!
This Jeep hits a particular sweet spot. The later CJ7s like this 1984 example carries the iconic design, and mixes it with desirable features that were not available on its older siblings, like the five-speed manual transmission. That's why we know you're going to do a double-take when you see the price on this classic 4x4.
The CJ7 is the quintessential Jeep, combining the classic upright grille, topless fun, and a rugged but friendly demeanor. The Laredo was a premium package, and it looks the part, especially dressed in its maroon. The deeper, more sophisticated tone comes from an investment in a professional respray. Plus, it does a great job of highlighting the two-tone silver stripes, chrome bumpers, and the chromed iconic seven-slat grille. And those upgraded bright wheels add both toughness and flair. Plus, while all Jeeps look great with the top down, this one continues its attractiveness with the doors and roof in place thanks to a newer Bestop soft top.
The new black soft top was a great investment, but we all really enjoy it when these Jeeps are open to the world. That's why we love the level of preservation/restoration inside. Nearly everything looks new, including the Rugged Ridge covers on the seats. The front buckets are comfortable on the trail, and when it's time to go out on the town, they combine with newer dash pad and chrome dash plate for a quite sharp package. You'll slip behind the grippy sports steering wheel, and the original gauge package (including tach) is bright and clear, so you always know where you stand... even if you're out on the trail. And no matter where you are, you'll appreciate the modern AM/FM/CD stereo w/Bluetooth that's secured in the locking center console.
Under the hood is a 258 cubic-inch inline-six motor that's a long established powerplant for Jeep. It's part of what built the CJ's go-anywhere reputation and continues to have easy parts availability. And this one looks like it has been treated correctly, including a new carb rebuild, new brake master cylinder, and a new hood heat shield. Torquey and robust, this is the engine you want pulling through daily traffic or the worst slop Mother Nature can throw at you. The five-speed manual is great for driving in-town, and when the pavement ends, it works with the two-speed transfer case to feed the seriously beefy axles at both ends. Tall gears and low range give it rock-crawling stability, and features like power steering and front disc brakes are great no matter where you're driving.
A handsome Jeep with all the right upgrades and features makes for the perfect classic 4x4. So when you check out the price, you realize this is an irresistible deal. Don't miss out, call today!
