 Vehicle Description
Stk. 2287 1979 Jeep CJ-5 (PROJECT)

In its prime, there was nothing that could match the prowess of a CJ-5 in the backcountry - and this 1979 CJ-5 wants to continue the journey. It has had a lot of modifications, but must still be considered a 'work-in-progress'. Starting with a solid frame, the builder converted the body components to fiberglass. Front cowling, quarter panels and floorboards are all one-piece. The hood and front fenders form the front clip and there is a sturdy steel front 'Bull Bar". A two-point padded roll bar is attached to the inside rear fenders. This Jeep is powered by an AMC 304ci V8 with Holley carburation and tube headers that exit to side exhaust. The 3-speed manual transmission directs power to what is believed to be a Dana 20 transfer case with manual Superwinch front hubs. At the moment, there is a transmission issue with third gear. It may need some work, but it is certainly not the most complicated gearbox around. The chassis is equipped with power steering and disc/drum brakes. Most of the suspension components have been modified and off-road tires are mounted on nice machined 15" Dick Cepek rims. The interior is all business typical off-road. There is an AutoMeter gauge package. All of the seats have been recently reupholstered in black vinyl and are in very good shape. The canvas top/doors/windows are also in good condition. This CJ-5 is ready for a new owner that will finish the project and then enjoy this classic piece of Jeep lore on the road or in the back woods.
