Description for Jeep CJ 1978

JEEP CJ-5 FOR PROJECT OR PARTS, CLEAR TRANSFERABLE TITLE INCLUDED
MY APOLOGIES FOR THE NEED TO RELIST THIS JEEP!
READ THE 3 POINTS BELOW BEFORE YOU PROCEED:
1) NO BUYERS WITH A FEEDBACK RATING HAVING LESS THAN 25 POSITIVE TRANSACTIONS. SORRY, BUT YOU CAN THANK THE SCAMMERS FOR THIS.2) DO NOT BOTHER TO CONTACT ME IF YOU DON'T KNOW HOW TO WRITE AN UNDERSTANDABLE SENTENCE.3) THIS IS THE LAST/FINAL TIME THAT I WILL EVER LIST THIS JEEP ON EBAY.
This was a project that I began about 25 years ago. Unfortunately, when the Jeep was at this point in the build (1996), it was the victim of a flood (not salt water) - This Jeep was completely submerged under water!
Some time after the flood this Jeep was then stored in a box trailer and there it has sat for the past 20 years! It was skidded and removed from the trailer on June 21st of this year. The Jeep is currently covered and is not exposed to the elements - so what you see is exactly what you will get.
IT SHOULD BE ASSUMED THAT EVERYTHING MECHANICAL (SUCH AS BEARINGS)HAS BEEN WATER DAMAGEDTO SOME EXTENT AND I MAKE NO GUARANTEES AS TO THE CURRENT CONDITION. IT SHOULD BE ASSUMED THAT ALL OF THE MECHANICAL ASSEMBLIES WILL REQUIRE REBUILDING - SO KEEP THIS IN MIND IF YOU DECIDE TO BID!
THIS JEEP IS BEING SOLD AS IS AND SALE IS FINAL - NO REFUNDS!
At one time this Jeep had beautiful 15x14 Indy mag wheels and 38" tires on it until thieves broke in the trailer and relieved me of them - that is why it's now sitting on a skid.
Now on to the specifics for this Jeep. Everything described below was done 21+ years ago:
  • Original rust free body tub, windshield frame, grille & hood that have been sandblasted and Variprimed - original front fenders are included, but have not been sandblasted and primed.
  • Original rust free undamaged chassis that has been sandblasted, Variprimed and painted with Centari acrylic enamel with hardner. The chassis has not been modified or altered in any way!
  • Warn 8000 lb. winch with factory Warn mount.
  • Completely rebuilt (pre-flood) Dana 44 rear & Dana 30 front axles (3:73 gears - I think) with custom axle trusses, new Selectro front lock out hubs and have had 11/16" wheel studs installed - You will need to use wheels that were designed for early shank style lug nuts or have wheels bored to accommodate an 11/16" stud. The bolt/lug pattern is 5 on 5.5" (the same folks that took the wheels liked the lugs nuts as well, so I have no lug nuts for this). Note: The differential covers were pulled after the flood to let the water out and are in included.
  • New (pre-flood) Skyjacker 4" spring lift & shocks with custom made HD shackles.
  • Completely rebuilt (pre-flood) 304 V8 engine, .030 over, Comp Cams camshaft (I can't remember the specs.), ARP rod bolts, completly balanced assembly, new valves, valve guides, Edelbrock Performer intake, water pump, etc. you name it!
  • Completely rebuilt (pre-flood) transmission (3 speed) and transfer case, new bearings etc. The clutch, pressure plate and ring gear were new as well. Note: The trans & transfer case were drained of water and then filled with Diesel fuel after the flood.
  • Completely rebuilt and adjusted (pre-flood) steering gearbox, new ball joints, etc.
  • Custom built 3" dia. DOM steel tubing roll cage - The roll cage has not been welded together or tied in to the frame, some parts have been tack welded together and others have been simply taped in place to give an idea of what it would look like when done. All of the tube ends have been precision coped and are fitted for assembly.
  • Included (NOT IN THE FLOOD), are a pair of Cobra racing seats along with RJS Cam-Lock 5 point racing harnesses.
  • Not pictured, but included are many other parts: Windshield glass, dash panel, wiring harness, another hood & grille w/lights, 3 radiators, driveshafts, plus many other small parts, etc.
  • The Jeep itself is located in Broadway, Virginia 22815 - in case you need to calculate mileage for transport.
