RARE WESTERNER EDITION, 25K ACTUAL MILES, 1-FAMILY OWNED, STOCK, RUNS/DRIVES GR8
Imagine yourself behind the wheel of this gorgeous 1986 Jeep CJ7 Westerner Edition. The sun is shining, you're cruising down a beach somewhere, water splashing out from under the tires, and then you wrap up your perfect day around a beachside campfire with a bunch of friends. OK, well, that's more like a Jeep commercial, but with this gorgeous 4x4, it can also be reality.
Finding a CJ7 that hasn't been beaten to death or left to rust in a driveway somewhere is nearly impossible, which is what makes this one so special. The Westerner package is mostly about tape stripes and decals, but the color combination is extremely appealing. This particular Jeep is shockingly clean inside and out, top and bottom thanks to just 25,548 miles on the clock and an easy life. Rusty rockers? Nope. Maybe some bubbles around the rear wheel arches? Zero. Instead, it's beautifully finished with appealing charcoal gray paint and bright decals that perfectly capture the spirit of Jeep's most beloved creation. Oh, there are plenty of details, too, including fender flares for the oversized tires, step plates, and a tailgate-mounted spare tire. This Jeep has fun written all over it, but the hardware is hardcore and will take you virtually anywhere you want to go. And it will look flat-out awesome doing it.
Jeep interiors were basic, no frills places from the start, designed to be impervious to the elements and easy to maintain. This one is no exception, although civilization has made some inroads since the first Jeep rolled into battle just before WWII. Wearing black seat covers on high-back buckets, a little water and dirt won't matter; just hose it off and continue on. The floor is protected with black carpets and rubber floor mats, and a custom center console provides a safe place to stow your valuables. The painted steel dash offers a passenger grab handle, as well as an array of round gauges, all of which are fully functional and show bright, crisp markings. The back seat will hold two, and there's a more recent AM/FM/CD stereo radio to entertain you on the trail. This one also comes with both a folding cloth top and a removable hardtop and matching steel doors, so it seals up well if you're planning on using it year-round.
Most of these Jeeps used inline-sixes, and the 258 cubic inch powerplant has proven itself time and time again as the right choice. Torquey and smooth, this one remains entirely stock and very nicely preserved, not restored. Looking at the engine bay, it's unlikely that this CJ has ever been off the pavement and obviously it has always been stored out of the elements. The big six has loads of low-end torque, so performance in the lightweight Jeep is downright impressive and if you know any Jeep guys, they'll tell you how reliable these things really are. Thanks to the 4-speed manual transmission and 2-speed transfer case, it can practically climb walls at little more than idle speeds, making it the perfect off-road companion. There's more evidence of low mileage and clean living underneath, where you'll find an ultra-clean undercarriage with no signs of abuse or modification. It runs, rides, and handles like new, and we have to say that's really rare in a vintage Jeep. Shiny chrome wheels with BFGoodrich All-Terrain T/A tires are the right look.
