You are bidding on a 1
owner AMC Jeep CJ5 American Eagle V8 survivor bought in Southern California
back in 1979 where it lived and never left the State until 2012 when it
was shipped to Southern Arizona for professional mechanical

It runs perfect on regular gasoline with the original 304 V8, 4
bbl Edelbrock carb, aluminum intake, restored 3 speed manual transmission with
new clutch, new 4.56 gears front & rear, new Detroit lockers front &
rear, fresh 4 inch lift and brand new 35 inch BFG Mud Terrain
tires.Mechanically this Jeep needs absolutely nothing.

Here's the history of this beautiful
machine named "Goldie".

The original owner who bought it near
Torrance, CA maintained it exceptionally well, changing the oil every 3000
miles. He never wrecked or abused it and kept it completely stock except for a
repaint in the mid 90's.

Since it has only been driven 100 miles from the complete mechanical restoration I'm calling it a "1 owner" Jeep even
though technically it has been issued a clean new Arizona title to the second
owner/restorer Dan Drager, a professional Jeep builder since 1995 with
a reputable Jeep restoration & repair shop called "Desert Dog Automotive" in
Tucson, who just retired and closed his shop as of March, 1st,
2015.  He's moving to California and is selling off some of his toys.

Dan Drager served in Vietnam while
stationed in DaNang in the late 60's as a Jet Fighter mechanic. After his
service he was the Chief Technician at Delta Airlines in Atlanta running a crew
that serviced commercial passenger jets through the late 70's, 80's and early
90's until he moved to Tucson to open his own shop in

Dan's late Brother from San Luis Obispo,
CA., who tragically passed away last year, knew the original owner of this
Jeep from Torrance, CA. and introduced in 2012 Dan to him who bought it with the
expressed intent to restore it to the NINES for his wife Toni as a trail
companion to his 2 other built competition Jeeps, one called the "Black
Bastard", which is a stretched Wrangler rock crawler with 1 ton Chevy axles,
Detroit Lockers, Coilovers and a late model Corvette LS motor. The other is an
old 50's flat fender Willy's with a SBC 383 Stroker motor named "Bobaloo" that's
run crazy fast without a hiccup on the trails, dunes and drag strip for the 16
years that I've known Dan.

Upon delivery of Goldie the 1st thing Dan
had in mind is that this Jeep would be his wife's rig so no expenses were spared
in the mechanical restoration. The stock 304 CID AMC V8 engine with 147k
original miles had exceptional compression for its age so upon tearing it down
and inspecting everything with a micrometer & gauges only the timing chain
components were out of spec -- so those were replaced with new timing chain
& tensioner, cover gasket, & all OEM parts along with new water pump,
rebuilt alternator, rebuilt starter and new distributor seal, cap, rotor, plugs,
wires, fuel pump and misc. tune up parts.

The cast iron intake was replaced with an
aluminum Offenhauser intake and rebuilt Edelbrock 4 bbl carb with spring loaded
needle & seat for ease of tuning & reliability off
road.  Passes AZ emissions with ease.

The gas tank was removed and sent to
Performance Radiator in Tucson for professional restoration which amounts to
boiling in a hot tank and coating.

The stock 3 speed manual transmission &
transfer case were removed and resealed plus new OEM clutch, pressure plate,
throwout bearing & pilot bearing was mated to the freshly machined OEM

The powering steering pump and steering
gear box were removed, resealed & replaced with new drop pitman arm &

All worn ball joints & steering
linkages were replaced.

The oil pan was removed to replace the 2
pc. rear main crank seal which was weeping.

The factory radiator was leak tested,
purged and flushed. New hoses, clamps & coolant were

The entire 2 pc. AMC 25 rear axle assembly
was torn down & replaced with the superior 1 pc rear axle assembly with new 4.56 G2 ring & pinion with master bearing and
seal install kit plus new Full Carrier Detroit Locker, new gear oil, new wheel
seals, bearings, brake drums & shoes.

New 4 Inch Pro Comp lift leaf springs and
long travel shocks along with stainless steel extended brake lines were added to
the rear end which still retains the factory "spring under"

The entire Dana 30 front end was
torn down and everything replaced: new, brake pads, rotors, wheel
bearings and axle seals installed, hubs lubed, in addition to brand new 4.56 G2
gears, master bearing install kit & Full Carrier Detroit True Track
Positraction unit.

Next the Jeep was sent to Kenny at "Exhaust
Works" in Tucson for complete new 3 inch crossover exhaust with Flow Master
muffler. Surprisingly quiet with a nice snarl when you step on the gas. Not
too loud for the neighborhood or trail.

Next brand new 35 x 12.5 x 15 BFG Mud Tires
were mounted & balanced on brand new 10 inch wide black Rock Crusher steel
rims with the stock 5 on 5-1/2 lug pattern.

4 Wheel Alignment was then performed at Embassy Tire & Wheel in Tucson.Finally black powder coated steel rock skis known as rock sliders or rocker guards with steel step rails were added along with black painted aluminum diamond plate corner guards to the rear corners of the tub for protection.

Upon delivery from CA the Jeep's frame was
100% rust free. It was steam pressure washed then dried and coated with epoxy
coat. The Jeep's body was 97% rust free with 1% being a spot on
the driver's side front fender, 1% being on the passenger side by the door, and
1% being on the driver's side windshield frame.

2 out of these 3 areas were professionally
eliminated by cutting out the small area & welding in new sheet metal &
grinding & then a very thin coat of filler over the ground welds. These 2 areas are shown in the
pictures with primer near the left and right door area. They have since been
lightly resprayed with a Duplicolor spray paint that is far from a perfect match
but is hard to notice until you get close. The 1% of rust left on this Jeep is
the small area near the driver's side windshield hinge shown in last picture.The
Jeep is now 99% rust free.The interior is super clean & original
except for where original owner installed a good working Kenwood deck and some
dash mount speakers that managed to cut into the glove box door. The floor pans & tub are absolutely immaculate and all rust free original.Seats were
recovered with the mid 90's repaint and look great.

The Jeep comes with a bikini top only.
There is no top nor doors. They were ditched long ago. That's just the way we
roll in the South West.The original numbers matching 304 V8 engine starts
every time with a click of the key. Smooth, quiet & powerful. Reliable as
the day is long. No smoke, no knocks, no noises, no leaks, no issues. If it's
been sitting for more than a day it needs a couple pumps of the skinny pedal &
fires right up. Will pass emissions in all 50 States guaranteed since none of the OEM smog equipment had been molested. Everything's fresh under hood so it won't
need anything in the engine bay for years & years except regular oil changes
& air filters.

If your're smart contact "Grundy Worldwide" for Collector Car Insurance. Google them. They're
cheaper than Haggerty with identical coverage. With a simple phone call they
will provide a Full Coverage insurance policy on this rig (that means theft,
fire, collision, etc) for only about $10 a month -- and that means no yearly
emissions tests in any State! You'll need to snap a couple pictures of it in a
garage is all.

The original numbers matching 3 speed transmission shifts
smooth and precise as designed as it should with a fresh clutch. No leaks. No

The 4x4 actuation and transfer case all
work as designed. No leaks. No issues.

Everything works. All the gauges and
signal electrics work as designed. There's some corrosion on some of the chrome
gauge bezels.

This Jeep drives down the road smooth with
no rattles or issues as perfectly as one would expect for a CJ5 with a 4 inch
lift on 35 inch tires.

It stops quick and with no
issues and a great pedal feel.Originally there would have been a swing out tailgate in the back but for some inexplicable reason the original owner decided to weld it shut with some light filler making the tub look like it never had a tailgate back when it was repainted in the mid 90's.Cosmetically the Jeep looks great from a distance but close scrutiny of the paint shows it's age as there is considerable fading and chipping.There is a spare Goodyear mud tire 33 x 12.5 x 15 holding air out back.

There's not one of these CJ V8 Jeeps better equipped for sale in
the entire World.

Clean AZ title. Never been wrecked. Complete mechanical restoration. 99% rust
free. Built by a pro with all the best parts.

I've known Dan Drager for 16 years and agreed to help him liquidate his
assets for his retirement move. Email or call 52O-977-O112 for any questions
not answered here.
