STK 2582 1973 Jeep CJ5

Most of today's Jeeps have a fancy name and a huge sticker. In 1973, a base CJ-5 listed for just over $3,000.00 and was the foundation for all of these new models. Back in those days the option list was very brief - items such as a heater or a top. This sharp CJ-5 Jeep has been restored back to better-than-original condition. The solid body was refinished in Tuxedo Black (2017) with a new bikini top, side doors, chrome front 'Bull Bar' and chrome rear bumper w/spare tire rack. The interior is fitted with reupholstered vinyl bucket seats w/belts, a rear bench seat, roll bar, factory gauge package, logo mats and custom alloy spoke wheel. During this era, the CJ-5 used various AMC powertrains. The owner believes this engine to be the 258ci (4.2L) AMC Torque Command straight-six. It was completely rebuilt in 2012 and is lightweight, powerful and dependable. The Carter YF carburetor has been replaced with a Weber unit and the ignition system has been converted to electronic. A 3-speed manual transmission is mated to a 2wd/4wd, Hi/Lo Dana 20 transfer case and manual front hubs. In 1973, the factory front differentials were Dana 30 units and rears were Dana 44. A solid chassis retains stock leaf spring suspension w/upgraded shocks, manual steering and manual 4-wheel drum brakes. American Racing 15” alloys mount BFG All-Terrain T/A radials. This classic CJ-5 has been carefully restored and it is ready to go. ALL VEHICLES SOLD “AS IS”
