Description of 1978 Jeep CJ

1978 Jeep CJ-5


Yamaha Red exterior with Black interior

We are offering for sale our Jeep plow truck, it has never been titled still on the original factory manufacturer's statement of origin, and the miles are actual at 4,964.

This Jeep was delivered from the Jeep Corporation to Barrington Motor Sale on 9/9/1977
and was in stock until 5/1978 when a local RV dealer bought it with 171 miles on it, they used it as a plow truck and to move small RVs around their lot.
By 1992 they had out grown the need for the CJ5 and started to use tractors, we purchased it on 11/28/1992 with just 2,400 miles on it. For many years it was a back up plow due to us having another plow that serviced our needs. We started to use it in 1996. Only one person has plowed and driven this Jeep the total time we have had it.

This Jeep can be driven anyplace you want to go, we have kept up on the service and it always starts. Over the years we have replaced a lot of things over the years and have the records.

The Jeep left the Toledo Ohio plant painted Yellow, the Jeep was repaint in 1992 Yamaha Red with a black top. No it is not a mail Jeep, the top was made by Meyers snow plows and was part of a package with the 6 1/2 foot plow.

The body does have rust everywhere, remember it has a 39 year old tub, but the frame is rock solid due many many coats of rustproofing.

It does have a 258 cid 6 cyl and a 3 speed manual transmission, good clutch and synchros.

This would make a great resto project or just keep using it to plow you driveway or lot.

Remember this is a 39 year old Jeep, it runs great but it going to need a tub sooner or later. Needs heater blower motor, other then that great heater.
