1977 CJ7 Straight 6 engine w/3-speed manual
1977 CJ7 with the AMC straight 6 engine with 3-speed manual transmission.
Ran good before ran out of money and ‘switched’ interest. Definitely needs a battery. Probably a quick tune-up since it's been sitting for a couple years. Ran fuel preservative in it and have had it running at least once a year since parked. When work on it stopped, it was all good mechanically. Just needed cosmetic stuff and tires (didn't care because I planned to crash it into trees). Decided to buy an engagement ring instead of Super Swampers, hence the ‘switching’ interest.
Has a clear title. Asking $3000 obo. Over $4500 (plus 100’s of hours) invested, motivated to sell!
Jeep can be seen by appointment in the Aurora, Illinois area. I’m posting this for a friend as he’s not online, or this fourm. Feel free to post questions here or call six three zero 892 101zero during business hours, and ask to speak to Ashton. He’s the seller.
