CJ5 1979

Title Status --
Exterior Color Green
Interior Color Black


The 1979 Jeep CJ5 is one rugged machine. This is a lifted 4x4 with V8 power and all the right accessories to get you into or out of trouble. And they even added some handsome Golden Eagle flair for a touch of upscale style.

The paint sets off the theme of this CJ. After all, the green color is in perfect harmony with nature, and the overall driver-quality finish means you'll not think twice about really getting deep into the woods. And there's plenty of added ruggedness in the upgraded off-road features. It's a well-coordinated black with the tubular front bumper with fog lights, wide fender flares, side steps, rear light rock guards, and rear tubular bumper with a tow hitch. But this one also has some added appeal from a touch of elegance. This has the premium Golden Eagle graphics package that looks quite handsome against the dark green. And those golden wheels may have a rugged style, but the full execution is just the right touch of class.

The full Bestop soft top and doors look quite stylish. And gives you multiple options that range from fully buttoned up or completely being open to the world. In fact, this one seems to really know how to be a proper open Jeep with rugged materials to make any muddy day of fun clean up easily. High-back bucket front seats, a rear bench, full seatbelts, and a roll bar make for a versatile machine. There's even a neoprene cover for the driver's seat to make it easy to hop in on hot days. And you'll love the grip of the upgraded wood-rimmed steering wheel.

Under this hood is the Jeep/AMC 304 cubic-inch V8. It has an updated look with polished valve covers and a more recently painted block and heads. This is a torque master, and so it delivers the kind of rock-crawling muscle you want in a Jeep. Plus, the engine bay has a clean look of a good investment. It includes newer items like the carburetor, distributor, wires, and hoses. You take full control of it with the three-speed manual transmission. This goes well with the two-speed 4x4 transfer case, lifted stance, and the Wild Trac tires for proper off-road ability. And the power steering and front disc brakes make it nice for rolling through town, too.

This CJ5 has a robust look that also gives you a fun touch of premium distinction. So you know you want to grab the ultimate classic 4x4. Call today!!!
