The Jeep CJ series is a legendary range of small, open-bodied off-roaders that were built from 1944 until 1986. Over a million and a half were made over this long production run. Not many models can boast of being made under four corporate name changes, from Willys-Overland (1944) to American Motors Corporation (Jeep) in 1971. This 91,000-mile 1981 Jeep CJ-7 is special as it's undergone a full restoration with a long list of reportedly new parts. A minor discrepancy is a non-functional odometer, but the extent of the restoration is such that you don't need to worry much and can enjoy this Jeep to the fullest every day.
Sporting a new custom blue paint job with Renegade badging and decals, this 1981 Jeep CJ-7 looks every bit the vehicle for a bit of fun in the sun. It's reportedly got new Cooper Discoverer tires, a new bikini top, new lights, new windshield wipers and new mirrors. You'd really be hard-pressed to find another CJ-series Jeep in such pristine order. Even the undercarriage shows off a fresh outlook. Inside, there's reportedly a new interior sporting new seats and an all-leather soundbar that offers Bluetooth capabilities, allowing you to blast your choice of tunes. We'd recommend The Beach Boys, but hey, it's up to you. We also spy a custom center console box with an armrest between the two front seats. Behind the two seats is a spacious luggage area that can even double as a campsite should you choose to install a custom tent.
This 1981 Jeep CJ-7 is powered by a 258ci (4.2L) AMC in-line six-cylinder engine good for 98hp and 193lb-ft when new. If those figures sound low, that's because the engine is designed to be a reliable runner rather than a high-rev screaming powerhouse. A manual transmission sends a drive to the wheels. The current owner tells us that this 1981 Jeep CJ-7 is rolling on extra-duty suspension. Moreover, the fuel lines, fuel pumps, relays, wires, spark plugs, distributor caps, steering boxes, shock absorbers, struts, gaskets, and rear seals are all said to be new items. There's also a new Weber dual carburetor feeding the engine with the right diet of air and fuel.
