VERY NICE RESTO, 6 CYL, 3 SPD, FRONT DISCS, PWR STEER, 35'S, VERY NICE ALL OVER!
A fully restored 1980 Jeep CJ5 is a beautiful thing. After all, this kind of work means when you look beneath the attractive exterior, it has been given all the right investments to make sure this vintage 4x4 is a turnkey-ready trail machine.
The appeal of this CJ5 is black and white, literally. The pristine white paint looks great against the black bikini top, fender flares, extra-tall off-road tires, bumpers, and the rear-mound tire. The last one is more than just rear-end jewelry, but also the full-size spare is a truly essential price when you're out on the trail. Even the great Renegade graphics match this color scheme thanks to the black to silver fade stripe package on the hood. Plus, this hint of silver is a great set up for the chrome on places like the trademark front end and 15-inch Pacer wheels.
Because a proper Jeep is open to the world, the restored interior also matches with the rest of the exterior color combo. While the black bucket seats are covered in a nearly bulletproof vinyl, they are comfortable enough to make the trail an easy ride. And remember, this CJ5 was built for function (the fact that is looks so good is just the bonus!) That's why you have a large speedo, and all the essential gauges are easy to read and mounted in the center. The controls are laid out in typical Jeep fashion with a long-throw shifter for the three-speed manual, a shorter stalk for the four-wheel drive, and both are within easy reach of the upgraded three-spoke sports steering wheel. And speaking of functional upgrades, the floor has been Rhino lined, which just enhances that easy sensibility that you can clean this 4x4 out with a hose after a long day in the mud.
Under the hood is Jeep's trusty 258 cubic-inch inline-six motor. This is a long established powerplant that has proven its reliability and continues to have easy parts availability. Torquey and robust, this is the engine you want pulling through daily traffic or the worst slop Mother Nature can throw at you. The three-speed manual feeds the stock two-speed transfer case and seriously beefy axles at both ends. And make sure you check out the undercarriage photos where it proves that plenty of the restoration budget focused on the 4x4 fundamentals, including suspension bushings and Rough Country shocks all around. Tall gears and low range give it rock-crawling stability, but thanks to the modern and pricy Pro Comp All-Terrain tires, it can cruise easily at highway speeds in high range. In fact, with its power steering and front disc brakes this CJ5 is just as comfortable being a city slicker on the weekdays as it is a country climber on the weekends.
Beautiful on the outside, tough on the inside, and priced within easy reach – this restored Jeep is a true treasure that you can take home if you're quick enough. Call today!!
