 Vehicle Description
Its rugged, no-nonsense appearance has roots firmly planted in military service and was so universally appealing that its manufacturer left its generation largely intact for a full three decades - one of the longest production runs of any model ever to roll off an assembly line. This 1978 Jeep CJ5 has emerged from its restoration with a great looking exterior and upgraded, period-correct power lurking under its hood. If youre searching for a rugged, surefooted terrain navigator that also possesses a ride smooth enough for everyday travels, this is definitely one to check out. br / br / With high impact black paint now draped over its instantly recognizable form, this CJ5 offers visual vitality thats hard to come by in a car of its age. The paint was only recently applied and has a strong shine to it - a clay bar and buffing session will elevate things even further. There are no noticeable dings or scuffs to be found as you take a lap around this venerable vehicle and while youre in the process of doing so youll likely notice the assortment of new components it wears, including the fender flares at all four corners and a step bumper in back. During its restoration, the other exterior fittings received the attention needed to bring them into shape - in particular the chrome accessories and all light lenses are very fresh. While this nameplate is best known for navigating rugged terrain in open-air configuration, during those times the weather wont cooperate, a well-fitted bikini top is included for protection and it installs easily. br / br / Everything inside has also received a thorough going over, so as you climb inside youll be surrounded by a clean and comfortable interior. The seats both fore and aft were recently added and they certainly look the part - you wont find any creasing or signs of exposure to the elements anywhere on their surfaces. Below them, the entire expanse of floor has been coated for protection - aesthetically a nice touch and also practical, given the temptation the CJ5 presents for adventure off the beaten path. Just beyond the factory-issue steering wheel, the dash area has been repainted in glossy black paint to match the exterior and aftermarket displays to keep tabs on oil pressure and voltage have been added alongside the original cluster. All control knobs and switches are present and accounted for and the recess at the center of the dash stands by for the addition of your choice of audio system. br / br / The 304 cubic inch V8 beneath the hood represents the most displacement of any of the powerplant offerings when this CJ5 first rolled off the line. Its in great form here, surrounded by an array of new belts and hoses, starting up promptly and looking sharp in its newly painted block and valve covers as it sits in a tidy, well-maintained engine compartment. It wears a chrome air cleaner on top, has been outfitted with a new distributor cap and plug wires and teams with a 3-speed manual transmission to make for a very solid, well-functioning drivetrain. When the occasion calls for more surefootedness, the 4-wheel drive feature is easily activated via a lever within easy reach next to the manual shifter on the transmission tunnel. Power steering makes this classic an easy handler both on and off the pavement, while front discs help bring its set of ultra-clean 15 wheels wrapped with beefy all terrain tires to fade resistant stops. br / br / Combining plenty of vintage appeal with all the functionality you could ask for in an off-roader, this 1978 Jeep CJ5 is ready for action just as soon as you bring it home.
