This is not a Super Jeep, but does have the graphics package.
“Up for auction is a 1974 Jeep CJ5. It is powered by an AMC 304 V8 which we believe is the original engine which may make this Jeep a factory Renegade package. It is a three speed manual transmission we believe the axels to be Dana 44’s front and rear. According to our calculations the axle gearing is 4.27:1,
The Jeep runs and drives well and the 4×4 works well. It has manual lock out hubs, and has a manual choke so it starts and runs well when cold. The engine has been upgraded with an Edelbrock aluminum intake, fendewell exit headers than go to medium loudness mufflers, the Jeep sounds throaty but is not overly loud. The Jeep has been in Arizona its entire life, but does have dents and dings all over the body.
There is no rust but there are dents etc. I would call the Jeep a “five to ten footer” meaning that if you are 5 or 10 feet away it looks like a new Jeep, when you get up to it you notice the dents and dings but hey its almost 40 years old and these werent built to be show cars, but it is rust free. It has been repainted an industrial gloss white and has custom Super Jeep package graphics on the body tub.
The body tub is 1976 and was swapped on many years ago. The Jeep has brand new black low back vinyl bucket seats, new seat frames, and a new factory rear seat from Rugged Ridge. The Jeep has 4″ of total lift comprising of 2″ lift Rancho springs front and rear and 2″ lift Performance Accessories shackles. The tires are new 33×10.50×15 BFG KM2s and the wheels are vintage restored American Racing turbines that have been restored to brand new condition. The wheels and tires were installed in the spring of 2011 and have less than 200 miles on them.
The Jeep belonged to my brother in law who was killed in an accident at work, and he performed all of the work and restoration from approx 2009 to 2011, we got it in the spring of 2011. We have kept it in storage and drive it occaisionally when the weather is nice, but honestly have only put maybe 100 to 150 miles on it over the last year and half, mainly a Sunday cruise when the weather is nice etc. We have decided that it might be time to pass it on to someone else to enjoy, this Jeep turns every head that passes by, and it just needs a few minor details to be perfect in our opinion, but it is ready to enjoy as it is now. Clear Arizona title in hand, the Jeep is located in Avondale, AZ. ”
