Up for auction is my MINT Rust-Free from Arizona 1978 Jeep CJ5 Renegade Levi Edition with ACME hardtop.  The Jeep has been Restored to Original Condition and is immaculate as you can see in the pictures.  I have invested a substantial amount of time and money in this Jeep.  It has a strong 258 6 cylinder, RARE T-18 4-spd transmission with granny low, power steering and tilt wheel.  It runs and drives as good as it looks!  All lights, gauges and accessories function properly.  The ACME hardtop was dealer installed.  The side vents and Valley Industries swinging spare carrier with Jerry Can mounts were dealer installed when new also.  The side vents to help keep the interior cool in Arizona and swinging spare carrier so you could open the rear hatch due to the rear spare tire.  The Jerry Cans are brand new Blitz California approved and never had any gas in them.  All smog equipment is present and functions properly with exception of a catalytic convertor which I chose to not install when replacing the exhaust system with new (exhaust clamped together not welded so new buyer can add convertor if needed).

Body & Paint:  I started out with a nice rust free Jeep from Arizona back in April 2009 and just finished it.  It has always been stored inside my garage and never out in the elements since being purchased.  The body was completely re-painted it's original color, Loden Green Metallic, except the under-side of the tub and dash panel. The frame from the tub forward and front differential were detailed and painted.  No rust repairs were done or needed.  I wanted to leave some factory paint and maintain the originality of the undercarriage.  The interior floors were painted just like the exterior and NOT Rhino-lined.  Much effort was made to maintain the original integrity of the body spot welds and all seams so they remained as original.  The front fenders, hood and windshield frame were replaced with new.  The original fenders and hood were rust-free but had various dents and dings and were more cost-effective to replace than repair. When I pulled the windshield to paint there was rust behind the gasket in the lower channel so it was replaced also along with a new windshield.  No rust in the body mounts or frame either.  The ACME hard top is very nice and was repainted also.  The CJ5 was originally shipped with a soft top and the hard top was dealer installed so it has the snap screw holes which I chose to not fill when repainted.  That way a soft top could still be installed easily and the hard top covers the snap screw holes when installed.  I do not have a soft top for the Jeep.  I actually purchased this Jeep because of the hard top.  MUCH quieter!

Interior:  The original seats were recovered with NOS Levi Tan Vinyl and NOS Levi Tags.  The dash pad is as near perfect as I have seen.  The carpet is new along with the floor mats.  I had a custom pad made for the original console with the Levi vinyl like would be in a 1980 Laredo but Levi Tan.  The console has the latch with lock and key.  The dash was cut by a previous owner for an aftermarket radio.  The Kenwood stereo works great playing through a Tuffy Security speaker box mounted in front of the console.  All lights, gauges and accessories function properly including the gas gauge, dash lights, windshield wipers & washer, horn, etc.  It has a tilt column which was rebuilt.

Drivetrain and Suspension:  The motor starts immediately, idles smooth and runs great.  The motor, transmission and transfer case were removed and detailed when the paintwork was done and new belts and hoses were installed along with several engine accessories.  The carb was replaced with an NOS one.  The radiator is new and the Jeep does not run hot.  The complete exhaust system is new.  The gas tank and fuel sending unit are new.  The T-18 4-spd transmission, transfer case and clutch function great and shift without any problems.  New u-joints were installed and driveshafts were detailed and painted along with the transmission crossmember.  Also if you did not notice, it has the correct shims(new custom made) for the transmission crossmember to lower the driveshaft angle due to the longer length of the T-18 transmission as it came from the factory.  The 4-wheel drive system works great also.  The suspension is very tight and drives better than any of the many CJ's I have owned.  The steering box was replaced with a remanufactured unit.  NOS Steering Stabilizer and new shocks all the way around.  It drives tight with no shimmy or wandering on the road.

Wheels and Tires:  The original wheels were media blasted and painted.  All five tires are brand new 30X9.50X15 Goodyear Mud-terrains (Real MTR's not the Walmart version).
