Description for Jeep CJ 1981

Selling this cj5 Renegade. Purchased with intent of restoring back to original. Most of the work complete mechanically and the majority of parts included with the bid to complete. This is a rare cj5 and it is definitely bittersweet parting with it, especially at this stage. Too many projects and not enough time and money to complete. Selling with bill of sale only the way it was purchased
I have owned over 20 jeep cj over the years and they are getting more and more difficult to find. They are also increasing in value. Do a quick search on eBay at what jeep cj 5 Renegades are selling for in auction and buy it now. The expectation when this one complete is that ist would sell in the 12 to 15k range. Jeep cj is a rare vehicle, this one even more so because it is one of the very last cj5 and has the Renegade package.
I purchased this jeep in Houston,tx and it spent its entire life there. I got it from the second owner. There is some surface rust primarily in the tailgate area, if I were to complete the restoration I would purchase a used tailgate, these are easily replaced on cj. The second owner had installed a motor different than the stock inline 6. I had the engine removed and inline 6 installed. Starts and runs well. The issue I ran into is the clutch needs to be replaced not working with the engine I installed. The clutch needed is included in this auction bust hasn't been installed. As far as I am aware this is the only thing needed to get it up and driving. The odometer shows under 100k miles. I have no way of knowing if this is correct but was told it was by previous owner. Another very rare and valuable feature is the original mileage. It does have an aftermarket lift kit and shocks. The lift is about 3" and has been done right. Tires are in ok shape and comes with extra.
the interior either needs to be featured in an episode of flip my ride, or redone. Lol. I do not have a top, seats in front in ok shape and missing rear seat. The good news is the tub is in good condition and cj5 tubs sell on eBay used in the 1500 range. At one point considered parting it out but just couldnt bring myself to do it. Having said that I hope someone gets it and completes restoration and shares photos with me. I have several sources for new and used cj parts I would be more than happy to share
Will be glad to ship anywhere in the us for 1.00 per mile. To get shipping price just google the distance from zip 39073. Bid with confidence, we have no hidden fees including lot fees. The winning bid is what it ends for at auction close. We have been selling vehicles for over 10 yrs on eBay, over 200 vehicles. The only negative feedback we have ever received was a customer stating we didn't deliver. We arrived that afternoon and were assured by the customer it would be removed and wasn't.
Thanks in advanceJohn Hopkins6628015820
