This Jeep has a whole lot of like!  To start, Alpaca Brown is one of the rarest color options offered by AMC!  Add in the fact this is a 304 V8 Golden Eagle with overall outstanding California metal, we’ll call this a hard to beat vehicle you’ll certainly be proud to own.  This CJ5 is an extremely nice driver-quality Jeep as-is, but you can also take it to the next level with minimal work.
