1979 Jeep CJ
1979 Jeep CJ
An early version initially called the “Willys Overland” morphed from military GP (general purpose) vehicle to the mass-produced CJ, short for "Civilian Jeep.” More than 1.5 million CJ Jeeps were built, having continued the same basic body style for 45 years since the Jeep first appeared. Widely regarded as "America's workhorse”, the CJs have been described as "probably the most successful utility vehicle ever made." The word Jeep is an acronym of the letters GP.
The call of the wild, the great outdoors, into the great wide open, breathin' the fresh air, are all representative of this 1979 CJ which has undergone a full frame-off restoration, and now can take you out to dinner in style, or to the top of the tallest trailed peak. You decide, the wild is your oyster…(sic.)
Absolutely perfect would be the words to describe the beautiful paint job on this restored Jeep. Excellent gaps, excellent panels, removable doors, custom roll bars, and massive LED light bars, and hidden LED fog lights are a few of the add-ons that give this a versatile feel, as well as provide enough extra light you will not need your phone. Texture coated JCR front and rear bumpers are attached fore and aft. A front mounted winch will get you out of any spot within the woods where you may have misjudged the depth of the mud. Mickey Thompson 17-inch polished wheels wrapped by General Grabbers which are specifically designed to have deep gripping treads but are very quiet on the paved surfaces on your way to the trail. These are framed by front fender flares, as immaculate as the bodywork.
Starting upfront a custom dash with all the essentials and new gauges are imbedded into the front and bordered by a beautiful red windshield. A custom-made center console with a touch screen sound system will rock your world and have the natural world fleeing thinking it is an incoming storm. An automatic transmission linked to a B&M shifter as well as numerous toggle switches are also seen between the two new buckets. A removable bench seat, and texture coated floors and surfaces will eliminate your worry about any mud you may encounter…bring on the hose!
A spanking new (only 87 miles on it!) 350ci GM crate engine was plopped into the pristine engine bay backed by an automatic transmission, Holley carburetor, and plenty of polished chrome. A custom Flowmaster exhaust and fully polished oil pan and transmission covers are seen on a pristine underneath. Disc brakes all around, unless you want to use the crawler gear. And a mild lift kit increases ground clearance and includes Skyjacker shocks.
If you are into the outdoors, and love to explore out of the way places, then you should take a closer look at this beautiful, newly redone custom build CJ7. With creature comforts, and many upgrades, this will have any current “wrangler” pale in comparison. An excellent build which will greatly exceed your expectations in person. Elephant Hill (Utah) here I come.
