1977 Jeep CJ7 in Fort Worth Texas

 Vehicle Description
Hard to have more fun on four wheels than with a Jeep CJ-7, especially one as dialed-in as this bright orange 1977 Jeep CJ-7. With a high-impact paint job, a V8 engine, and trail-rated hardware atop a go-anywhere lifted chassis, its ready to do some serious off-roading. You just cant beat the old-school look and anvil-like durability that the CJ-7 brings, and this attention grabbing example is ready to have some / br / Were finally getting to the point where these CJs are legitimate collectors items and bringing the kind of money they deserve, but youll probably discover that very few are finished to this level because theyre still so often ragged out on the trails. The shape is unmistakable, especially with the doors and top removed, and thanks to a shiny Burnt Orange paint job and a set of blacked-out wheels, a color-matched roll bar, and blacked-out bumpers fore and aft, it looks incredible. Sure its no trailer queen, and in our opinion no vintage CJ ever should be, but the driver-quality paint was laid down just right on the original sheetmetal, and we love the high-impact Rocky Top look. Thanks to years of a life lived easily (relatively speaking, as we all know vintage Jeeps cant help but venture off-road just a little) this CJ is put together right, the tub feels tight and all the panels fit quite well, and while a lot of these CJs led hard lives, this one has obviously been taking it easy since the work was completed. Heck, some Jeep guys might scoff at how bright and shiny this one is, but nobody will argue that this isnt a great-looking off-roader. Add in the side pipes, heavy-duty black bumpers fore and aft, black rocker panel molding, big side mirrors, and that covered spare tire hanging off the back, and it looks to be ready for just about / br / Inside, this one is almost too nice to hop into with dirty shoes, with fresh tan vinyl front bucket seats and a matching rear bench leading the way in the comfort department. Theres also a matching tan dash pad protecting the Burnt Orange metal dash over the floors, and a durable spray-in bedliner material was applied over the inside of the tub to provide a little much-needed sound deadening and heat insulation, not to mention the ease of clean-up it affords. The factory gauges look good in the painted orange dash, highlighted by the large speedometer in the center that also contains the fuel and temp instruments. Theres a retro-style modern AM/FM head unit in the Jeeps original dash slot the dash - the only entertainment you get - but if youve ever experienced the thrill of an open-air Jeep than you know you dont need any extra frills. Theres also an original, wrapped three-spoke Jeep steering wheel which makes it feel far more sophisticated than youd expect inside, and the tall shifter for the 3-speed manual transmission is just a short reach away, and it makes this V8-powered Jeep feel like a go-anywhere muscle car rather than a utilitarian machine. A full-size soft-top and matching soft doors come with the package, and the durable tan canvas matches the seats for an all-together feel that really works well with the Burnt Orange paint. br / br / In 1977, most Jeeps carried the 4.2 liter inline-six, which was certainly adequate, but lots of owners longed for the torque of a V8. Thankfully, the ample Jeep engine bay can easily accept just about any small block (or big block for that matter, if youre willing to shift a few things), and we often see Chevy and Ford engines make the Leap to a Jeep, so to speak. The owners of this CJ opted for a Ford 302 V8, a venerable motor that has powered some absolutely legendary vehicles for decades, and the bright blue engine is topped with a stock carburetor and factory-style intake manifold, and delivers big power for fun on or off the pavement. Power steering is probably mandatory with those giant tires and the chrome open-air air cleaner adds even more flash to the Burnt Orange engine bay, and stock exhaust manifolds feed a custom dual exhaust system with side exits that sounds awesome. The chassis is in great condition, including the 3-speed manual transmission and 2-speed transfer case, and much of the hardware underneath looks to have been serviced regularly throughout the years. Beefy off-road shocks manage the lift kit, which provides plenty of ground clearance for some pretty hairy rock-crawling with room for those giant, blackwall Nexen off-road radials on blacked-out 15-inch deep dish / br / A muscle car for the dirt? Youd better believe it. Not many CJs get refinished with these specs, so when you find one this nice, dont hesitate. Call today!br/br/
