1979 Jeep CJ5 304 V8 manual 3 speed. Needs some some TLC or drive as is. Good project, off road or even hunting vehicle.
Actual miles. Runs and drives good, sounds great. Starts right up. 4x4 works good. Steering wonders a little, may need a new steering box?
Solid frame and body. Fenders look new.Old repaint, flaking (see photos), original color was Olympic white. I ran a magnet around the body and it sticks everywhere. Looks like floors had been replaced. No rot on this Jeep, some surface rust near windshield and back upper corner. Otherwise really solid.
Headlights, running lights, side lights and signals all in good working order.
Looks like original wagon wheel rims, I think the rims have spacers thats why the tires are sticking out a little. Nice black Besttop soft top and doors (2 years old) and bikini top with matching doors (brown). Has a matching fold/roll rear seat but is not installed, need brackets. I have a nice dash that could go along with it and a matching center console. It does have a spare tire carrier, but one of the tire bolts are broke. Also have new mirrors and a few other small parts.
Factory optional tilt, tach and clock. Disc front brakes.
Fuel, temp, oil, amp gauges and heat blower are not working.
I have included some really large photos to look over and study.
I don't know any of the history but will try and answer all question so please ask!
