It's not common for 'restored' CJ's to be sitting at Dealerships for-sale either. To me, that would be a red flag. Even though this one appears to have a lot of crown parts, they still add up quick and whoever flipped the bill to get this one 'freshened' up probably sank a small fortune in it (like all of us have), so I have a tough time thinking that he would take it to a Dealership and trade it in (for pennies on the dollar, as a Dealership only entertains KBB values - they do not consider aftermarket parts for trade-in value). If he tried to sell it privately first, I would ask myself why it didn't sell. Only other way the Dealership would've bought it is at a whole-sale auction, which again, I would question the CJ's history/condition. Perhaps it belongs to the owner and he is advertising it through the Dealership though...

Have you ever riden in, or drove a '5? If not, I recommend that you do so prior to buying one. They are shorter wheelbase than a '7, which means less storage room in the backseat area. Also, depending on your size, some people have a difficult time getting in and up of them, as well as leg room. You can 'notch' the rear fender to create a few more inches, but I doubt you would want to cut up a CJ like you're looking for.

That rubber fuel line laying on the header would/should be re-routed

Good advice. Just found out it's a two wheel drive too. What kind of horsepower do you guesstimate. Chevy 350

This one does have a small block Chevy engine. I'm courious what transmission this has, the shift lever is low for what gear it might be in and the transfer case if its not the jeep tranny.

For a nice looking jeep like this appears to be, I wouldn't expect to see the yellow butt connector, or so much rubber fuel line. Factory SBC's use a metal fuel line from the fuel pump to above the valve cover.

There is no way to tell without a dyno. Anywhere from 170ish to ~300 would be likely. 200-225 is probably a good guess if it runs well and isnt a "built" motor.

Personally I'd avoid anything without working 4wd unless the price was just too good to pass up.

2WD???

I bet someone dropped in a Chevy drive train and deleted the transfercase.
I bet it's an automatic. Or a Manual with the side cover shifter.

My first jeep was a 2wd CJ5, Fortunately all the right 4wd stuff bolted right back in.
You could do that with this but have the seller drop the price a couple of thousand.

Here's another good example of a scam that I found on Craigslist.

Think the search is over. Found a sleeper no rust. Here's a few pics once again I appreciate if y'all have any thoughts.

That's nice. The PO put some money under the hood. What's he asking?

Reckon it's a 454, eh?

Clean looking '7 from the pics.

Is it too far to go look at?

Perhaps you could fly out, and lay eyes on it.

Could save you a lot of money in the long run.

I'd take those small Renegade stickers off the back quarter panels and swap the wheels/tires for something more OEM looking.

Keep us posted!
