Regarding This Vehicle

1979 Jeep CJ-5 4×4

Very sharp CJ-5 with original steel body and well-appointed with favored options! Rebuilt 360ci V8, 3-speed manual, power steering, and disc brakes!  Factory code correct Wedgewood Blue Metallic with Blue Denim Vinyl interior!  Chrome is abound with round tube bumpers, side step bars, roof light bar, and so much more!  Classic looks and feel of a proper CJ-5 example! 

Whether it was Willys, then Kaiser, and after 1970 American Motors Corporation, the Jeep has been an American staple during wartime preparedness, or civilian off-road enjoyment! Once the AMC Jeep was in control, vast improvements were initiated to provide more creature comforts, not to mention safety. These included changes in 1972 forward with an AMC produced engines including a first-time offered 5.0L V8, fully boxed chassis stretched by 3” along with 6 cross members for added rigidity, gas tank moved to the rear between the frame rails, Trac-Loc differential, and more! It is these magnificent machines that appeal to Jeep enthusiasts worldwide!

Offered here is a very well-kept 1979 Jeep CJ-5 4×4 finished in factory code correct Wedgewood Blue Metallic over Blue Denim Vinyl interior! Powered by an H-code 304ci V8 engine originally, it was later fitted with a 360ci V8 fully rebuilt by Hovis Performance Engines along with a rebuilt 3-speed manual transmission. Options include front disc brakes, power steering, AM/FM/CD player with rear seat speaker box, chrome round tub bumpers & side step bars, chrome overhead light bar with four KC lights, front fog lamps, Bestop soft top with Bikini style doors with lift off window frames, chrome hood & windshield hinges, stainless steel hardware & hood latches, American Racing Outlaw I wheels, chrome rocker moldings & cowl vent, and more!

This solid example has seen a full cosmetic restoration to include a repaint completed years ago in base coat/clear code fashion using Ditzler/PPG paint, along with many upgrades to enhance the looks and performance. In addition to the ones already mentioned, you will find an Edelbrock Performer AMC aluminum intake with 4 barrel carburetor, mild cam upgrade, and exhaust headers under the hood. This allows for a chrome open-element air cleaner and true dual exhaust to help draw out some additional power. The suspension was enhanced with upgraded Rancho RS5000 shocks. Upon arrival to the St. Louis Car Museum, it immediately received fresh engine oil & filter, new exhaust manifold gaskets with new mufflers, rebuilt steering box, new brake master cylinder, carburetor accelerator pump, new air filter element, spark plugs & plug wires, coil, and distributor cap, transfer case mount, coolant temp sensor, and a few other small improvements.

We feel this is ready to be enjoyed for either on or off-road fun! With summer not far away, be ready to strip off the top, hang the doors in the garage, and enjoy some open air freedom Jeep lovers have come to love! Please feel free to call with questions or schedule a chance to review in person. Thanks for looking!
