If you don’t mind a pretty minor project that you can “fix as you enjoy” that also has an affordable entry in to the Jeep CJ market, look no further!  CJs with the factory 304 V8 motor are highly desirable and few and far between.  This Jeep holds no secrets and is as honest as they come.  The seller intentionally did not detail the vehicle so misrepresentation will not be an issue.  With a buff, some catch-up maintenance, miscellaneous tinkering and a rear floorboard replacement, you'll have yourself a Jeep you'll be proud to own!  This Jeep WILL SELL with just 1 bid!

This CJ7 has been one-family owned until the seller’s recent acquisition.  The Jeep is mostly original paint, but has evidence of spot painting in several areas.  Seller indicates the spot painting appears to have been done a long time ago as the paint blends well with the patina.  The floor behind the rear bench shows isolated rust, which is the only area of the Jeep that has rot.  Minimal surface rust is visible on the front floor boards.  The rear quarter panels adjacent to the tailgate shows evidence of repair due to sheet metal cracking around the hinges of the tire carrier (common issue with CJ era Jeeps due to the weight of oversized tires on the factory tire carrier).  The seller indicates there is evidence of partial spot painting near the front fenders, rear quarter panels and interior floorboards; presumably to cover rock chips and interior paint wear from foot abrasion.  The seller states most of the paint on the vehicle is original with visible, factory correct spot welds throughout.
