LIKE NEW, 4.2L INLINE 6, AUTO, A/C, 4X4, 31X10.5X15'S, HARDTOP INC, VERY NICE!!
Each time we get a new Jeep in the showroom, it seems like a new standard has been reached; they just keep getting better and better! This 1985 Jeep CJ7 is among the very best we've featured, offering a fresh restoration, great colors, and just the right look for a vintage CJ, so we have to say that the bar has just been raised once again.
The list of stuff that's new on this Jeep is extensive, and if you want one that's pretty close to the way it would have been back in 1985, this is your Jeep. The paint is so fresh you can almost smell it and was done to a standard that AMC never could have mustered in the '80s and quite frankly would make me think twice about getting it dirty. It really is that nice. The Laredo decals are accurate reproductions that were professionally applied, so it has a crisp, clean look that isn't over-wrought but rather period-perfect. There's no sign that this Jeep has been rusty and the critical areas are just as nice as they seem, bearing out the idea that the best vehicles start with the best base stock. Other new equipment includes the chrome bumper and much of the stainless trim, new rubber fender flares, new marker lights, and new rubber gaskets throughout so it feels tight and smooth, an unusual feeling in any vintage Jeep. All the original emblems were reinstalled and the factory spare tire rack hangs out back, so it has a very correct look, which is important to a lot of guys who have discovered that these are more than just disposable beaters today.
Don't worry, the interior's pretty darned nice, too. The tan high-back bucket seats wear correct "Western Weave" cloth upholstery with protective seat covers over the top so you can go have some fun. The carpets and door panels for the steel doors look new and the carpet in particular helps give this Laredo an upscale feel that's especially noticeable when it's all sealed up. You'll also note that this Jeep has factory A/C, which is fully functional thanks to an R134a refrigerant upgrade, and the original gauges remain in excellent shape with bright markings and clear lenses. There's a locking center console for valuables, but with the removable hardtop and steel doors, this Jeep locks up tight and makes for the ultimate all-weather warrior.
Jeep's famous 4.2 liter inline-six is our favorite choice in a modest 4x4 like this because it does everything you need from a powerplant designed to go to remote places. Reliable, easy to service, with plentiful parts availability, and not to mention peppy performance, it's an excellent choice. The engine bay is very clean and there's no question that the recent paint included full dis-assembly so everything looks crisp and clean under the hood. It starts easily and runs like a Jeep should, and the 3-speed automatic transmission makes it feel a little more user-friendly when you use it around town. The 2-speed transfer case and axles are designed to handle the rough stuff without breaking a sweat and the undercarriage also offers a lot of new components. Color-matched wheels wear recent 31x10.50-15 BFGoodrich off-road radials that fill the fenders just right.
There's a lot more than the asking price wrapped up in the restoration of this CJ7 and like I said, they don't get much nicer than this. Call today!
