You are looking at a real piece of American history. Like baseball, cookouts and apple pie nothing says "Americana" quite like an old Jeep! I found this ol' girl out in the field down in southern Alabama and had to tow her away on a flatbed, put in a new battery, turned the key and the fuse box caught fire and half of her wires fried from the get-go. After opening her up I found the transfer case and transmission were both severely damaged and literally full of mud, tires were dry-rotted and rims were rusting away under the tires. The rear axle was being held up by a floor jack and was sitting uncovered outside for who knows how long. After getting the engine started it literally blew apart on me blowing a 4" hole out of the side of the block.  What you are seeing here is the result of the last 2½ years of work I've done to restore her to her former glory. I've replaced every wire from the headlight to the taillight (plus those too!), a brand new 4.2L Straight 6 engine with less than 2,500 miles on it (replaced speedometer when I replaced the engine - speedometer says 1,300 miles more but that was because I didn't disconnect the driveshaft when I towed it here), new T-150 Transmission, Master Clutch kit, Weber Carburetor, brakes, ignition system, new black denim Bestop Supertop, new 35" tires and rims, sanded off the spray-paint from the idiot before me and went down to bare metal then I had it primed and painted (May 2014), replaced the rear axle, of course some awesome off-road lights, plus and much more.  This CJ5 has new life again, new parts in a classic car. She isn't 100% restored yet so there are still things you can spend your nights and weekends working on with friends or alone after the wife has gone to bed. If you can picture yourself with the doors off and top down cruising down the road or tearing up the trails and want to own this piece of American history make a bid!  I know there are a lot of CJ's on here starting at lower bids, but this one is practically new. Only 2,500 miles on her new engine and transmission, clutch, tires, etc... - you can't beat that. Moving in Georgia in two weeks so don't delay.  I knocked a grand off the price from the last posting to offset some cost for those of you who contacted me last time about shipping it - I am not taking any less than 7k for this Jeep so I don't be posting it again for less if it doesn't sell, I'll just tow it to Georgia and keep working on it as I've done.  If you post questions in the comment section below I can add 5 more pictures for free per comment I believe.  Here is a list of the various upgrades and replacements I've done (as far as I can remember -- list is not fully comprehensive of course):Bestop SuperTop AMC 4.2L (258) Straight 6 EngineWiring Harness 32/36 DGV Manual Choke Weber Carburetor35x12.5x15 BF Goodrich KM2 tires AND RimsFuel Pressure RegulatorRadiatorT-150 TransmissionHeater CoreHeater/Blower MotorStarter SolenoidIgnition ModuleIgnition SwitchDistributor (Assembly, Gear, Cap, Rotor, etc.)Ignition WiresSpark PlugsIgnition Lock and CylinderSpeedometer CableSpeedometer Gauge ClusterMaster Clutch KitDana 20 Transfer Case Overhaul KitBatteryStarter  EGR ValveCowl SealWiper Switch for 3 Wire Windshield Wiper MotorHeater Defroster Hose, OvalDefroster Duct, OvalDash PanelFront Seats WITH the RisersSeatbeltsPaint jobRear Brake Cables / Drums / HardwareEmergency Brake CableMaster CylinderOil Pan15 Gal.
