1981 Jeep CJ 5 Brother of CJ 7 Additional Info:

4 Sale, One of the nicest California most it's life "unmolested" factory original classic Jeep CJ 5 you will ever find or see. Jeep retains all it's original Jeep running gear 35 years later. Jeep is rust free and is gorgeous. . When you open the hood you will find that the motor even retains everything in place 35 years later. Even the factory smog equipment still in place on the motor ( that's rare ). The factory A/C is "complete" and still in place. You just don't find many classic CJ that still retain all there correct parts still in place 35 years later. * Jeep is smog exempt in most states due to being 35 years old vehicle. * But all the factory smog equipment is on the motor if you live in a state like (California) that still requires smog check on 1981 vehicles. Jeep odo showing 97,000 original miles. Odometer and speedometer both work. Title also showing " original miles". * With that said, everything on and in this Jeep works correct and it runs and drives as good of better than the day it was sold new. I did not rebuild the motor "because it did not need to be rebuilt" Motor runs outstanding, it will cold start and idle like a new motor out of the box! No motor rattles, No valve train tappet or lifter noise, No timing chain slop or rattle, No bottom end noise, No Exhaust smoke. The exhaust burns clean = SEE VIDEO. Motor is very tight and runs strong. No lack of power or performance in this Jeep! = SEE DRIVING VIDEO. Great oil pressure 40 to 50 lb oil pressure at 180 deg water temp. " I removed the oil pan to replace the rear main oil seal (because it had a very - very small oil leak) I don't like leaks! I inspected bottom end at the same time " Crank shaft bearings looked new - nice bottom end. I replaced rear seal and pan gasket new. (NO LEAKS UNDER THIS JEEP). Also replaced front timing chain seal / gasket after inspection timing chain - looked great. I installed a new water pump and hoses, new clutch fan and belts, before i put it all back together. Everything was in good working order. * But oem new is always better when you spend the time putting something it back together. Motor and motor bay both clean and detailed. It looks very nice and very original when you open the hood. All the 4 wheel drive parts under Jeep work great and "No leaks". This Jeep is so sanitary and and very original . In my option ( this 35 year old Jeep CJ5 is Classic History at it's best). it's very hard to find them this complete and original. I have owned and been driving classic CJ 5 and CJ7 for over 40 years. This Jeep CJ ranks at the "top of my list" in overall look's, reliability and drive-ability! The inside of Jeep also looks as nice or nicer than the day it was sold new. Original rust free un cut floor pans treated in black Raptor Armor to keep inside nice and scuff free for many years to come. = SEE PHOTOS and VIDEO. The original rust free body was outstanding, all original Jeep and "uncut" 35 years later. The original paint color was Jeep (1B = very dark blue.) Jeep was so nice and so straight it had to be painted in (Raven Gloss Black) so 4 coats of "Raven Gloss black paint applied after prep and block sanding. " Jeep was then color sanded and buffed to a nice wet look finish ( No orange peal" in paint ). = SEE PHOTOS and VIDEO. *You will even "see my reflection" in one of the paint photos. It's "high gloss" and you can read a news paper backwards in the paint! So, yes I would say it's one of the nicest looking 35 years old Classic Jeep CJ driving the roadways. This Jeep was built to drive and enjoy as they should be! It's very reliable, It drives nice, It runs nice and it sure look's nice. SEE PHOTOS and VIDEO. If the paint work was any nicer " you would not want to drive it and get it dirty". It will turn every head in town, driving down the street. It's a head turner for sure! After paint work was done installed about everything new on the body. New fender flairs, new marker lights, new turn single lights, new head light rings, new lower window rubber, new chrome mirrors, All new chrome hood hardware and hinges. New exhaust - ca, muffler and tail pipe. In my onion this Jeep looks nicer today than the day it was sold new 35 years ago. Other tell me the same! Jeep fitted with new 2 1/2 inch suspension leaf springs and new poly spring bushings and new shocks = so it rides nice. New power steering parts and a new ' power steering gear box" installed so it handles nice, ( No steering slop or free play in steering like most of them. Jeep fitted with factory disc brakes on the front and factory drum rear, so it stops easy, stop straight and will stop on a dime! SEE VIDEO. Jeep fitted with 32 tall - 11.5 wide Pro Comp Tires. Gives Jeep nice body stance. It looks like a classic CJ should. New Alco type 15 inch polished aluminum wheels" period correct for CJ ". Custom front and rear bumpers. Rear bumper has swing out tire rack and class 3 tow hitch. All "dash gauges original" to this Jeep and everything work correct! = SEE VIDEO.
