This bright red 1985 Jeep CJ7 is one of the nicest Jeep 4x4 we've ever featured. Seriously, it offers a fantastic color combination, a rumbling 350 cubic inch V8, and an interior that hasn't been left out to bake in the sun. Someone else got it to this level, now it's time to head out into the sun and have a ball.

The CJ7 is the quintessential Jeep, combining the classic upright Jeep look, topless fun, and a bunch amount of comfort and convenience features that make it daily-driver friendly. Thanks to a fresh repaint that's better than a Jeep usually receives, it looks like a million bucks, especially dressed in bright red. It's pretty clear that this Jeep hasn't been bashed up on the trails, and thanks to a life in the warm south it is not showing any evidence of rust in any of the usual locations. The paint was professionally applied to a standard that's almost too nice to risk out on the trail, shiny and smooth, and we like the blackced-out accessories that give it a heavy-duty look that seems right. Rubber fender flares add clearance for the oversized tires and give it a butch look. It's also dressed up with fresh bumpers with tow hooks, tubular step plates, and a heavy-duty tire carrier out back that easily handles the big rubber. Actually, there are a lot of nice little details, so have a careful look and dig how well it works with the red paint.

Jeeps are basic, no argument there, but the black and red interior is as nice as it can be thanks to a long list of new equipment. The buckets have fresh two-tone seat covers that look racy in the vintage Jeep (it's more than 30 years old, wow!), and the original rubber floors have been finished with black carpets that give it a more civilized feel if you're using it regularly. A trick carbon fiber dash panel adds a little flash to the interior, surrounding the upgraded gauges without changing the look. An under-dash A/C unit uses modern hardware that makes it surprisingly effective, but there is no radio. A Lokar shifter manages the TH350 3-speed automatic transmission and looks more like a long-handled manual shifter, which is kind of cool next to the transfer case controls. Steel doors and a removable hardtop are included with this Jeep, so it really is usable as a full-time vehicle rather than just a weekend toy.

While it isn't stock, the 350 cubic inch Vortec V8 under the hood makes a huge difference in this Jeep's personality. Replacing a wheezing 304 AMC, it's built the way your favorite Camaro's engine would be built, complete with long-tube headers, an Edelbrock 4-barrel carb, and chrome dress-up kit. The block was painted to match the bodywork and there's a giant aluminum radiator up front for low-speed crawls through the mud. It cackles to life through a throaty dual exhaust system with catalytic converters and Flowmaster mufflers, plus tips that exit just under the rear bumper. Look around underneath and you'll find beefy axles at both ends with a modest lift, off-road shocks, a steering stabilizer, and a whole lot of new hardware mean this Jeep is ready to go. 15-inch wheels with 31x10.5-15 BFG All-Terrain radials provide the wide-shouldered look.

Not many Jeeps get restored to this level, and with just 1500 miles on the build, someone clearly spent the long dollar to make it look this good. Call today!
