I have a 1980 CJ7 V8, currently at 130,500 miles, automatic transmission with black hard top and doors.
Original white paint w/ the Laredo (beige colored) logo/pin stripping and CJ7 plate.
Everything on this jeep is pretty much stock. I had the transmission rebuilt about 8 years ago.
Lifters and/or valves will need some possible work, but other than that the engine runs fine.
I use it for light commuting (hence the low mileage) and it hasn't been off-road.
I redid the interior of the jeep. Line-X all inside with the driver side needing to be Line-X again after the brake master
cylinder leaked fluid for the second time (!!). It has black carpeting, new passenger seat, black dashboard (formerly
beige). I have flame-printed seat covers and the roll over bars will need to have their foam covers replaced (dried out)
Overall a pretty special CJ7 (like most of them) and sadly I may have to sell her after 10.5 years together.
I'm the 3rd owner of the vehicle.
I look to be moving out of state by the end of August. I'll be looking for someone who will take care of her and is
a CJ7 enthusiast. Based in Los Angeles, Calif. it is current with smog and registered until 1/2012
What is the best way to value my CJ7?? I was thinking about $7000, but after looking here it looks more like under
$5500. If so, can anyone explain why the low value on these jeeps? Has the economy "devalued" the jeeps?
Any questions please contact me.
