A Jeep shop has a '76 CJ7 for sale. It has recent paint and body restoration work, a 304, and a recently rebuilt 3-spd manual tranny. That's about all I know about it. The price seems nice though..
I had some questions about the tranny and the 304. I'm looking for a Jeep mainly for weekend use, mostly on road or on easy trails. No hard-core wheeling.
What are your thoughts about the 304 and the 3-spd. I'm used to 5 & 6 spd's, so I don't know what I would do with a 3 speed.
Is the 304 going to be okay for street use, or is it going to give me 8 miles to the gallon?
Anything to watch out for on the 78's? (aside from the usual things to look for on an old Jeep .. i.e. rust).
Thanks in advance for the info.
