1985 CJ-7 Masquerading as M-38A1 **SOLD**


UPDATE: **SOLD** Was $5400.

Located in Windsor, Rhode Island.

While this may be a fine jeep, claiming that, except for the longer length of a CJ-7, this is a ‘perfect copy’ of a M-38A1 seems a bit dishonest to me. Exactly what part of this jeep is a ‘perfect copy’ of a M-38A1?

“Up for sale is a Korean war era M38A1 1985 CJ7 MASQUARADE. Apart from the fact that CJ7s are about 8 inches longer this is a perfect copy. Its got a 5 speed transmision with the AMC 258 L6 motor and the 3.31 axel to gear ratio. And good 28′ wheels and tires. Only 130,000 miles on it (pretty low for a jeep) …. Military stuff: Comes with “lusterless forest green” high test military paint job as well as has “USN 023990″ painted on hood (yes the navy actually had more green jeeps then grey jeeps). Has military canvas seats, an authentic m38a1 dashboard (with all gauges hooked up and working, military black out lights and locking toggle switches (including blackout light, convoy lights and military rear and front light clusters). Comes with digital camo hard top and authentic jerry can and bracket.”

1976 CJ-7 Akron, Oh $1900


1976_cj7_akronA reader asked me to post this for his friend.  This CJ-7 includes a fiberglass body.

“This is a 1976 Jeep CJ7, 6 cylinder, auto trans. The Jeep has a nice Four Wheel Drive Hardware Fiberglass body which cost $2200 new), it has two hard tops, two sets of hard doors and a full soft top. The bad is that the frame is shot and will need a replacement. If you have a CJ7 project going, this would be great for the body and other parts. Call Bill 330-808-224six ”

Lesson #37 — Try BEFORE you build


1980_cj7_siltThis is funny.  Built by someone who had never actually rock-crawled before, this seller has a 1980 CJ-7 Rock Crawler for sale.  The fact that this seller tested his jeep in moab with just a roll bar suggests a rookie status, and leaves me wondering what other details he left out of his build.  Read the rest of this to learn why he is selling his jeep.

“1980 CJ-7 Rock Crawler for Sale or trade. Price is negotiable make a decent offer. I have $8,000 invested in the beast. I would love to trade for a decent Toyota.
1980 Jeep CJ-7. New Straight 6 less than 3 thousand miles. New Automatic transmission less than 1000 miles. New 5.38 gears. New lock right lockers in both axels. Full width Dana 44 front and Dana 60 rear. 9 bolt pattern wheels. The axels came off a 1970 J-20, ¾ ton pickup. 38 Inch buck shot mud tires with a new spare and bead lock rims …. This Jeep is ready to crawl right now. Runs perfect and drives ok on the pavement.

I built this baby to rock crawl. After I got her going my Dad and Brother took me on my first rock crawling trip! Moab’s Pritchet Canyon. We warmed up on Potato salad hill the day before and some fun trails around town, I really thought I was something with the easy trails, the jeep never missed a beat.  The next day we drove Pritchet. I only had to winch over two obstacles. I actually made it over the rocker knocker without winching. The rest of our group had to winch up. She made this rookie feel safe and even looked like I knew what I was doing. It is a great crawler. This was a year ago last March.

After years of hearing my Brother and Dad’s stories about the trails I finally built a jeep and took a ride. I hated every minute of it.

So now the jeep is yours if you want it.  I am looking to trade for a good running Toyota pickup or 4-runner. Maybe even a Nissan. My selling price is negotiable. I want something I can tow my small camper up and down the highway/  The CJ is not pretty, but mechanically it is pristine.  Call Ed at 970-379-3283 or 970-876-0726 ”
