Description for Jeep CJ 1981

Up for auction is my nice original never restored 95%+ rust free 1981 Jeep CJ5 Laredo from dry New Mexico which runs and drives great. Original paint and decals. Rare Autumn Bronze Laredo with Nutmeg interior. Has a nice matching ACME hardtop and factory/dealer installed front grill guard. No other tops. 258 6 cylinder engine and 4-speed manual transmission and all smog equipment still installed with exception of catalytic convertor. Rust free other than some small imperfections on driver's front fender and a half dozen pin holes in driver's front floorboard but all solid and nothing more than light surface anywhere else. There are numerous paint chips, dings etc. throughout which would be expected on a 38 year old original paint CJ5. No repairs on body, no undercoating and no patches or repairs to frame. No rust to body mounts either or other places typical to CJ's. Original interior is in very poor condition, but all new materials are included to replace. Windshield is cracked but all other glass is good. All lights and gauges work with exception of clock.
Body & Paint: All body panels, paint and decals all appear to be original with no evidence of repairs or replacements and 95% plus rust free as you would expect coming from dry New Mexico. The original Autumn Gold paint shows nicely but has numerous chips, scratches and dings throughout. Rust free other that some imperfections on driver side front fender (pictured), a few pin holes in drivers side front floor and light surface rust in various places but nothing has been touched up or covered with undercoating or bed liner. Rust free frame and body mounts also and none in other places typical to CJ's either. Has a nice matching nutmeg dealer installed ACME hardtop. The top is very nice with exception of minor damage on upper left rear corner pictured. Has a nice factory/dealer installed matching chrome push bar/grill guard. The windshield is cracked but all other glass is nice.
Drivetrain: The drivetrain appears completely original including 258 6 cylinder motor, 4 speed transmission, transfer case and differentials and all function very well. The 258 6 cylinder runs very well with tons of power and has an all new ignition system including distributor, coil, ignition module, spark plugs and wires. Also carburetor just rebuilt. The 4 speed manual transmission functions without fault along with differentials and transfer case. The clutch is getting worn but still functions well when shifting, driving etc.. Still retains all smog equipment with exception of catalytic convertor removed by prior owner. The power steering helps this CJ5 drive with ease.
Interior: The original interior is in poor condition which is typical coming from hot New Mexico climate and 38 years of wear. All new materials to replace interior included. Includes: High quality custom front/rear leather (not vinyl) reproduction seat upholstery, dash pad, ACC full front/back carpet set and dash bezel. Also included are 4 new KC off-road lights ready to install on light bar. The center dash panel has been cut for an aftermarket radio and switches for off-road lights but could be covered with new bezel(included) and a filler plate behind radio hole if you prefer that appearance.
Wheels & Tires: New tires all around on nice factory chrome Laredo wheels. Spare wheel is not factory and tire is new but does not match others.
