The weather has arrived and it's the time of year you start seeing everyone having fun in their Jeeps. Are you one of the many who want to join in on the fun, but want something a little bit more unique and rare, that you won't see at every intersection? Have a look at this 1979 Silver Anniversary Jeep CJ-5. It provides the classic vehicle nod with undeniable Jeep fun!These days it seems like a lot of the Jeeps we see on the road are covered in bright and flashy paint. While those can be fun, colors like the correct Quicksilver Metallic on this limited edition Jeep look absolutely fantastic! Silver has always been a color that ages well, and being a new paint job on this one, you can count on it remaining timeless for many more years. This Anniversary model was produced to celebrate 25 years of the Jeep CJ-5 model and came in very limited numbers. It is believed that less than 50 survive today. One feature of this model is the Renegade accent striping that adorns the panels of this Jeep. Continuing with the silver theme, these bold, silver graphics add a cool vibe to the overall styling and definitely remind you what period this trail blazer comes from! When the weather takes a turn for the worst, the black vinyl top will protect you from the elements should you need it.Enjoy a view of simplicity from inside the cabin. The clean and solid floors are topped with bucket seats up front and a bench seat in the rear covered in tight, black vinyl. The body matched dash has all the gauges you need to keep exploring on and off the roads, including a volt meter, oil pressure and tachometer. The long gear selector makes gear shifts easy and there is a 2WD/4WD selector to the right of it within easy reach. The three spoke steering wheel provides a good grip for the driver, while the front passenger gets easy access to the grab bar when things get bumpy. Heat and defrost is available on demand and all passengers are protected by the sturdy padded roll bar.Under the hood this Jeep features a period-correct 258 cubic inch inline six cylinder engine that is mated to a 3-speed manual transmission. This stout powerplant is mounted in a very clean engine bay that has been recently detailed. It appears the air filter has been upgraded to help the engine breath easier through the Weber carb, but everything else remains fairly stock. The engine has also been covered in what seems to be the correct AMC blue paint. Underneath, things are so clean that it's hard to believe if this Jeep has tackled anything more than a driveway and a lift. That bright blue oil pan really stands out against the fresh black undercarriage. There are disc brakes up front that stop the new 31x10.50 tires, and you can rest assured that the hardware this Jeep flaunts is ready to handle any duties you throw at it!With classic good looks and collectability, wrapped up in a fun package that all Jeeps provide, what's not to love? If you're ready to give a nod to all the other Jeep drivers on the road, don't miss this opportunity! Call today!
