1977 CJ-7 Jeep from California, Rust Free

This is your chance to own a really nice Jeep.

This Jeep has absolutely no rust! The factory chalk markings were still on the frame  when it arrived from California.

We steam cleaned underneath and painted with black undercoating. The body has been painted with professional grade,  high-quality urethane primer,  high-grade urethane base coat, and high solids clear coat.

The roll bars, front, and rear bumpers were base-coated black and satin clear.

Inside of the tub was coated with a spray-on bed liner, dash and hardtop were painted a gunmetal gray,

and original rims have been two-toned black and gray.

This Jeep has the original 304 V8 automatic engine that has been completely gone through with a fresh rebuild.

Rebuild Includes: 

Re-machined block with all new pistons, new cam and lifters, timing chain, heads all redone, fresh tune up, brand new carb, and electric distributer with 8mm wires.

The engine was broken in with Lucas Break-in oil. Has a new MagnaFlo muffler, ranchero shocks,

and a mild 2 inch lift kit.

The 304 used from '72-'78 has the best performance of all the 304s used in the CJ. Here are some specs on the engine:
