81 CJ5 258ci 4 speed
1981 Jeep CJ5 with the AMC 258ci Inline 6 with 4 speed Manual Transmission.
If you're looking for the all american, tougher then steel, harder than a rock Jeep you're in luck. This baby has seen three decades of american history and is ready to see at least 3 more. Shes no perfect beauty queen, but she surely will turn heads.
Lets see the pros,
-I rebuilt the upper end of the motor about a year ago, maybe 7000 miles at most since then.
-recently had a tune up.
-4 wheel drive works perfectly
-she starts and runs wonderfully,
-converted the manual fuel pump to electric,
-aftermarket carb i put on when i rebuilt the upper end,
-tops is in "good" condition, the driver door window is seperating but otherwise keeps water out very well.
-frame has NO RUST!!!!
-just got a rebuilt driveshaft with new u-joints in the rear.
-Brand NEW BATTERY
Now the not so pro's, but surely not cons,
-no power steering
-the steering has a little play in it, but is still fairly easy to drive.
-body has a little rust with the major spot being the one by the license plate seen in picture below.
-the only gauge that works is the speedo, with the battery guage being intermittent.
-no power brakes which is stock, but the brakes do work fine.
I'm only looking to sell her because i recently bought my dream jeep, a Grand Wagoneer, so i'm surely in no rush to get rid of the CJ. I'll consider almost any offer so don't hesitate to offer, The $6000 is NOT firm and trades considered as well.
Any questions don't hesitate to ask, i'm not looking to hide anything and if i forgot to put anything in this post ill surely let you know if you were to contact me.
