1979 CJ5 Silver Anniversary
This jeep is the holy grail of collectible Jeeps. Only around 1100 of these were produced. Worth around 29K when fully restored. Newly overhauled 304 V8. 79K original miles. It's been sitting for around 15 years before I bought it.
Complete Engine overhaul by Engine Solutions, Ft Worth with 5 yr/50K mile warranty completed April 2013
Rebuilt T150 3 speed tranny completed June 2013
New best top bikini top and half doors
Original wheels with Good Year Wranglers that have less than 1K miles
Brakes- new master cylinder, power booster, drums, shoes, calipers, wheel cylinders.
New fuel tank, sending unit, fuel pump, water pump.
New Radiator, battery, shocks, sway bar bushings, front seat belts, high pressure power steering line, clutch, wheel well trim, tail lights, side marker lights,horn, glove box liner, Smitty bilt security console. New carb rebuilt (May 2013).
Front seats reupholstered.
It's body is straight except for the bent front fenders. Minimal light surface rust in a few spots.
It's missing the front drive shaft and front locking hubs, rock chip to windshield. Heater is inoperable. Missing original radio. Clock doesn't work.
Mechanically it's very sound and drives nicely. I hate to sell it, but I have too many projects and it has to go. Asking $9500 (that's over a $3000 loss for me at that price). Trades would be a modern Jeep with Auto Trans or ?
