HIGHLIGHTS: “Classic” is the best word to describe this gorgeous black Jeep. 304 AMC V8, 4-speed manual, soft top and soft doors AND hard top with hard doors! Renegade decals!

BODY OVERVIEW: The body on this Jeep is incredible, showing normal signs of use. This Jeep appears to be largely original, and is super clean and solid throughout. There are some minor dings and dents that come with age, but overall the body is stunning.

PAINT CONDITION OVERVIEW: The paint is in great overall condition.There are very few paint imperfections, and the few that are visible are normal signs of use rather than signs of mistreatment. The black paint is slick with a deep glossy finish, and shows very well. The orange Renegade decals really pop against the black, even though they are showing mild sun damage.

INTERIOR CONDITION OVERVIEW: The brown interior is in great shape, though the driver's seat is showing its age as shown in the photos. There is no doubt that this Jeep has been treated right! Recovering the driver's seat would go a long way, and really clean the overall look of this CJ up. Upgrades include rear speakers, a modern radio, and an under-dash A/C unit.

MECHANICAL OVERVIEW: Under the hood is an AMC 304V8, which runs and sounds fantastic. Despite what you may have heard, AMC could make a pretty formidable engine back in this time period, and the 304 was no exception. The 304 is a good choice for a CJ, because while it provides more than adequate power, it certainly isn't overpowering and actually helps this CJ feel nimble. The transmission shifts great, and the dual exhaust provides a hearty rumble without blowing out your eardrums.

WHAT YOU'LL LOVE ABOUT THIS CAR: Modifications are at a minimum, and it retains that classic '80s Jeep look! This thing is in great shape!

WHAT YOU MIGHT HATE ABOUT THIS CAR: As nice as it is, we're not so sure this Jeep has ever seen a full restoration. If you're looking for a full restored trailer queen, this is not it.

DOES IT NEED ANYTHING? The horn and air conditioning are not currently operational.

WHAT BUYER IS LOOKING FOR THIS CAR? This Jeep is for the buyer looking for a road-ready Jeep they can drive and enjoy the same day they buy it. If you're looking for a nice, largely unmodified Jeep that drives well enough that you can actually enjoy it, this is a great candidate!

Dealership is not responsible for any errors, omissions, or inaccuracies contained in information provided by third parties. The majority of these vehicles are considered classics or antiques, meaning they are older vehicles with sometimes dated automotive technology. We are not an expert in the construction, engineering, finishes, materials or components of these vehicles. Our employees are a team of talented individuals with a history in the classic car industry. We perform an extensive visual inspections on all vehicles we represent, but we do not disassemble vehicles or components for inspection purposes and therefore it is always possible there is hidden damage that is not readily apparent.

Dealership assumes no responsibility for any repairs needed to the vehicle and it's the buyers sole responsibility for any repairs that might be needed.

If marked "Numbers Matching" or "Original Mileage", the consignor(current owner) states this vehicle as such. Given how easy it is to create a “clone” or “tribute”, we cannot guarantee the authenticity of any and all claims. Customer is encouraged to verify this information on their own, prior to purchase.

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.

Vehicle availability is not guaranteed and subject to prior sale. Regardless what is agreed to verbally, we cannot guarantee a vehicle will be held for a potential buyer without a non-refundable deposit collected to hold the vehicle. Contact the dealership about pricing to place a deposit on a vehicle.

Our preferred and most secure form of payment is a bank wire transfer. We can accept checks, but note that any form of a check will have a minimum hold of 10 business days. 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. We can not accept any credit card as payment or partial payment for a vehicle under any circumstance.
