1975 Jeep CJ -- Additional Info:

Jeep created an undeniable winner when it rolled out the CJ5. Such was the car's appeal that its manufacturer kept it in production for a full three decades while continuing to release new lines alongside it. This 1975 Jeep CJ5 is a great representative of the model - it's an agile mountain goat on wheels and it has fun written all over it. Its sharp exterior features some nice touches and there's plenty of power under the hood to propel... it over any obstacle in its way. While the CJ5 has an extensive military heritage and was designed with a sort of "no-nonsense" functionality in mind, its appealingly rugged demeanor attracted quite a legion of civilian fans over the years. This CJ5 arrives at the present looking pretty darned sharp. Its bright Teal paint (borrowed from a 1993 Mustang Foxbody) is in strong condition, with a good shine from front to back and a deep luster that really accentuates the Cj5's unique body lines and curvatures. The close-set headlights and running lights below have a definite military spirit to them as they sit inside the iconic painted grille that contrasts nicely with the correct for '75 Renegade decal package. Come around to the side and you'll find another clue that this Jeep was designed for real off-road action - its compact wheelbase contributes to its ability to navigate challenging terrain. The rugged bumpers are stock spec, the fender flares allow plenty of clearance for the oversized off-road tires, dual exhaust pipes exit the side of the Jeep, and all that blacked-out trim contrasts brilliantly up against the slick teal paint. The black vinyl interior is as low-maintenance as you can get this side of a tree stump next to a campfire. The buckets are newer and in very good condition and the durable materials will keep them looking good for years to come. The entire interior of the tub has been covered in spray-on bedliner material, and you know that stuff wears like iron, so no worries about getting a little dirt on your shoes. The driving position is pure WWII, with a Grant GT steering wheel on a long, skinny column and a long, straight shifter for the 3-speed manual gearbox, proof that when you get it right the first time, evolution pretty much leaves you alone. The gauges are simple and give you the information you need and although there's no radio installed, Mother Nature will thank you for the peace and quiet. As long as you stay out of the throttle. No hard top or doors, but do you really need them in a Jeep? Not if you're doing it right! A bikini top does the trick if you need a little protection from the elements, but in truth, this is a Jeep built to soak up the sunshine. The engine is the same robust 258 cubic inch inline-six that powers all our favorite CJs and it's a lot nicer looking than you'd expect for a 4x4, having been fully gone-through just 919 miles ago. Fresh blue engine enamel nicely matches the painted engine bay, and with bright details like the chrome valve cover and Holley 4-barrel carb in place, it runs pretty much the way it has for decades. The machine is simple and easy to maintain, which is key when you're someplace remote and goes about its business with vigor. The 3-speed manual transmission and 2-speed transfer case feed a set of pretty burly axles, and everything hangs on a lifted suspension, so it can go just about anywhere yet rides and handles well enough to be driven every day without really beating anyone up. Flashy 12-hole wheels add a sporty countenance, and they carry 33x12.50-15 white-letter off-road tires that are aggressive enough for just about anything you're going. Looking sharp, packing plenty of power and offering undeniable nostalgic appeal, this fresh Jeep CJ5 would be a great acquisition for the collector and off-road enthusiast alike. Call today!
