This original CJ7 Jeep has been in our family for 40+ years. Lived most of its life in our Mammoth Lakes CA vacation home fully enclosed and insulated garage, a very dry climate. This rare and unique Jeep has the original paint, drive-train, interior, wheels, etc...absolutely great shape. Runs excellent! Dual exhaust, sound nice! Everything works on it.

Spent $10,000 on recent work within the year and less then 200 miles on the Jeep since, to make things super sound; The very reputable M.I.T Drivetrain Specialist in El Cajon, San Diego CA did a QuadraTrac Rebuild, Front Differential overhaul, Rear Diff serviced, Brake Calipers, entire drivetrain underneath touched, lubed, and examined for any issues. MIT was $3000. Complete Care Car in Carlsbad CA did a complete tune up, fluids, new stock height leaf springs, carburetor, and radiator. Complete Care care bill $4000. All 5 tires are new BF Goodrich. Always meticulously maintained over the years, regular oil changes etc.... Original Leaf Springs and Carb, misc parts come with it.
If you are looking for an original Jeep, Levi Edition, Fully Loaded Golden Eagle Features, this is it! They are only original once!
I did much research on the Golden Eagle out of curiosity over the years. It seems, based on all the expert input that it is most likely a Golden Eagle with a Hood Decal delete.

Not so perfect items, in an effort to paint an accurate picture;
  • Passenger fender slightly bent...had a paintless dent remover company quote $360 to fix.
  • Drivers Seat shows some wear, tears in horz seat portion.
  • Few small nicks - cracks in original windsheild
  • Hard top has a chip out of the rear corner
  • Few nicks and dings in body
  • Original carpet shows wear
  • 8 Track does not seem to be working. Could be the one tape I have (I am not sure)
This CJ7 Jeep get's BIG THUMBS UP where ever I go! It is VERY unique, as I have never seen the same color combo and features on one in 40 years of driving this one. If you are the lucky one to buy it, be prepared to have many conversations about it.
Currently registered in California, expires April 2021. Certificate of Ownership "Title" in hand.

Why am I selling after all these years? Times have changed. Scaling down the toys. Working on setting up a 2nd home in a location 500 miles away, to be near the Grand-kids. It has been a blast owning and taking care of this Jeep. Much pride of ownership. Ready to pass on to another to enjoy it.

If shipping is considered; The Jeep is in my personal garage in Carlsbad, CA 92011. I will assist with meeting the Auto Carrier, and making sure it is loaded carefully!

Here is the actual VIN #J8A93EH109136. You can verify the build is correct, color, V8, Auto Trans etc. This is as "real deal" as they come! 95% of the CJ7s out there are modified.
