1973 Jeep CJ -- Additional Info:

Harboring upgraded power under its hood and outfitted with an array of aftermarket add-ons to provide both outstanding road readiness and plenty of capability both on and off the asphalt, this 1973 Jeep CJ5 is an outstanding representation of the brand during its less adorned, purpose driven era. This classic is completely dialed in, mechanically speaking, and has been thoroughly restored to top form. While the Jeep name has deep roots in military usage, the CJ5's... lineage is more direct than most of the other models, its aesthetics and overall configuration having been substantially influenced by its predecessors that provided no-nonsense, dependable transportation during the Korean War. As the '70s arrived, the front end was lengthened to accommodate more substantial engines - a feature that pays direct dividends in this specimen's case - while the compact wheelbase received only a slight enlargement, so that its obstacle clearing abilities were left intact. Clad in sharp black paint, with the crisp Renegade lettering on its hood merging with diamond plate rocker covers over color-matched step bars and bumpers both fore and aft, this CJ5 has a very finished appearance. Its exterior alignment is as precise as you could want, with body panels that blend together well, and there's a well-fitted soft top with doors included for protection during more challenging weather. The interior sports a refurbished look while retaining its stock configuration. A pair of high-backed Bestop bucket seats sit in place of the originals and appear nearly new, with little sign of wear on their vinyl surfaces. Below, the floor and rear storage area have been well-treated with spray in protective liner and the absence of carpet makes for much easier cleaning after off-road adventures. An aftermarket Grant steering wheel is now perched on the upgraded SST tilt column that also positions an Autometer tachometer nearby and the instrument panel just beyond it features a collection of new gauges and is surrounded by the shiny black steel of the dash. A quality audio experience comes via the added Blauplunkt AM/FM/CD stereo that can be navigated via remote. The 350 cubic inch V8 now on board beneath the hood sits in a well-maintained compartment and offers substantially more displacement than any of the available powerplant selections during this CJ5's era. Having been further enhanced with a well-chosen array of upgrades, it offers ample power that really makes driving this classic a lot of fun. It's fed by a Summit Street/Strip carburetor perched on an Edelbrock intake manifold and exhales into a pair of aftermarket headers leading out to a 2-½" exhaust that terminates in a pair of Flowmaster mufflers, providing an awesome, mean sound. Nicely dressed in a pair of chrome valve covers and matching air cleaner, the engine pairs with a 3-speed manual transmission that shifts without issue, while four wheel drive agility pairs with this CJ5's considerable ground clearance and compact wheelbase to easily surmount obstacles. An added thermostatically controlled electric fan and aluminum radiator ensure temperatures stay within range and a host of components - including the master cylinder, power steering pump and gearbox, wiring harness and fuel pump - were all recently replaced to up dependability. With both power steering and power disc brakes at all four corners, the road manners this ride offers are top notch in any driving environment. This rugged classic conquers terrain on a set of 15" alloy wheels outfitted with 33x12.50R15 Dick Cepek Trail Country EXP tires.
