1974 Jeep Cj5 in Fort Worth Texas

 Vehicle Description
We move a lot of Jeeps around here, but this 1974 Jeep CJ5 is the first one weve had that seems to think its a hotrod. Bright colors, a cool bucket seat interior, a big lift, and a thumping small block 383 V8 with throttle-body injection. If youre not going to go tearing up trails, why carry all the hardware around? Instead, this is a quick, fun city cruiser with a lot of punch and great road manners, all wrapped up in that cool Jeep CJ / br / Wow, this rig sure does make an entrance, doesnt it? The bright blue paint and green flames look fantastic, especially since it only has 543 miles on the build, so its still quite fresh. The hood and windshield frame are steel, but the tub is made from heavy-duty fiberglass, which means you never have to worry about rust and you can plow straight through the brush with nary a concern. The wheel arches are clean, the bed corners are solid, and the windshield frame looks great, and despite a few signs of use here and there, this CJ5 presents incredibly well both on the trail and off. There have been no exterior modifications beyond some dress-up parts, so the look is pure tradition, including the seven-slot grille up front. Of course, theres brightwork abound to dress it up, including chrome upgrades on the hinges, mirrors, step bars, and tubular bumpers, and they all sparkle against that lovely turquoise paint. In back, the tailgate is gone, so the Jeep has a smooth look with integrated taillights, as well as the bright fuel door thats a nice / br / Despite the CJ-5s shorter wheelbase (compared to the big-brother CJ-7s and CJ-8s), this Jeep has room for four, with Bestop buckets seats up front and stock bench in the rear. Both aesthetically appealing and very comfortable under the sun, the plain, durable upholstery works rather well with the bright blue bodywork and chrome roll bar. The dash was neatly painted blue to match the exterior with a custom Painless switch panel in the center, white-face AutoMeter gauges, and a modern AM/FM/AUX stereo that provides the tunes. Theres also an aftermarket steering wheel that adds some upscale sportiness to the all-business interior and the Bamp;M shifter for the TH350 automatic transmission is right between the seats where it falls easily to hand when youre running fast. Theres a padded black dash and black carpets on the floor, which do make the Jeep feel at least a little bit civilized, but there are no doors or top (only a bikini top), so its still an elemental experience. Fairly spartan yet very comfortable, the cabin of this Jeep is very nice place to / br / The engine is a 383 cubic inch Chevy V8 stroker motor, which is a popular swap if youre looking for more pop under the hood. Here, its built to rock, with a responsive throttle-body injection system, a polished intake manifold, and plenty of power on tap at any speed. Chrome Chevrolet valve covers remind onlookers that this is a street machine built for performance, not slogging through the mud, and a few more chrome dress-up items make it look great in the satin black engine bay. Fresh wiring, a dual master cylinder, a big aluminum radiator, and long-tube headers all help with its street-friendly image. The powerful small block is backed by a TH350 automatic transmission feeding what appears to be the standard Jeep rear end. The lifted stance is still pure Jeep and you shouldnt be afraid of rough roads or venturing onto light trails with it, especially with those big 36x14.50-15 off-road tires wrapped around shiny alloy / br / This is a fun open CJ-5 with a big V8 up front and a classic look.
