Maury shared this nice looking CJ-5 that is already at a $20,000 bid price with three days to go.

“This 1978 Jeep CJ-5 was acquired by the seller in 2014 and subsequently fitted with a 258ci inline-six and refinished in red. Additional work is said to have included a rebuild of the three-speed manual transmission, an overhaul of the axle and transfer case components, and a refresh of the braking components. Additional equipment includes 15” wheels, 31” tires, front disc brakes, Bilstein shocks, front bucket seats trimmed in black cloth upholstery, three-point front seatbelts, and rear lap belts. This CJ-5 is now offered with parts receipts, an owner’s manual, and a clean Michigan title in the seller’s name.”

    I think the late model CJ-5 and CJ-7 market is really getting hot. There are just not a lot out there anymore in any condition. A friend of mine just sold a CJ-7 with rust and a 4 cylinder with a engine knock for 5K. I prefer the CJ-5 but the CJ-7 offers a lot more room for us older guys. I need to see what steel replacement bodies are going for, I think the market justifies redoing some of these.

    I sold a well restored stock V-8 1977 CJ-5 20 years ago for $13,000!

    The CJ-7 doesn’t have any more room in the driver’s area, but it has more backseat legroom.
    And if course it has a longer wheelbase for better ride and more importantly, better stability.
    Still, a CJ-5 is fine if you aren’t drunk, speeding, or doing something foolish.
