1985 AMC Jeep
Zoom icon


The Jeep has perhaps one of the most storied histories of any American-made vehicle, with the production of the same basic concept and design lasting since inception during WWII to now. While a brand new Jeep may be a far cry from the original Willys, consumers and enthusiasts of all kinds have been attracted to these timeless icons as long as Jeeps have been available. The CJ (Civilian Jeep) designation was used from 1945-1986, at which time the classic Jeep received it's first major redesign and became the Wrangler.

This gorgeous black CJ-7 is a next to last year production of the CJ, and looks as good as ever! The black paint against the various chrome accents is a great combination, giving this Jeep a unique appearance. The brand new Micky Thompson chrome wheels really tie it all together! The body is clean and straight, and the body tub isn't suffering from any of the pesky rust issues so many Jeeps succumbed to. With soft doors and a bikini top included with the sale, this Jeep is ready to go for all your summertime needs!

If you've driven a Jeep, you probably have thought “I wish this was faster” at some time or another. Whether you have or not, rest assured this CJ-7 is faster than your average Jeep...much faster! Someone installed a GM 5.3 liter LS motor and a 5-speed manual transmission. Whoever performed the installation did it correctly, as it looks like it could've left the factory this way. However, to put this kind of power in a short wheelbase vehicle like this is as glorious as it is borderline insane! This thing really, really moves. Everything functions as it should, meaning the 4x4 is working correctly, A/C is blowing cold and there are no electrical gremlins to speak of.

The interior is minimalist, as any good Jeep should be, but the brown seats are the perfect accent against the black. Finished in what appears to be marine-grade vinyl, getting caught in a little rain isn't a concern. Both the front and rear of the floor has been coated in bedliner to make cleaning a snap, and for durability for all of your outdoor adventures. A modern vintage-style radio is mounted in the factory location in the dash so you can listen to tunes the modern way without ruining the classic look!

Truly dialed in from top to bottom, this Jeep is a summer of fun waiting to happen! We doubt you'll bump into another one like this at a local show, and anytime you go out all your friends will want to take your CJ. If you've been waiting for the right Jeep to come along, don't pass this one by!

We can assist you in delivery through our network of private and commercial carriers most of which can deliver the vehicle to your driveway. We assume no responsibility for damages or delays incurred once a vehicle is in a shipper's custody.

Because we advertise each vehicle with so many third-party affiliates, it is the customer's sole responsibility to verify the accuracy of the price with the dealer. All advertised prices exclude local, state, government fees and taxes and dealer documentation fee. Pricing is subject to change without notice. A dealer documentation fee of $250 will be added to the purchase price at the time of sale.

This includes cashier's checks, certified checks, or bank checks of any kind. For cash received in the amount of $10,000 or more, we will complete an IRS Form 8300.
