Steel body CJ5 with good title. Has Buick V6 and three speed. Body tub is from a 78, and is the no tailgate model. Dash is still from the 72 so numbers match frame. Floors are solid. Runs pretty good, currently has no brakes. Seats are perfect. Paint is a 15 foot job, and I don't see any filler.

Needs some electrical cleanup and tinkering. Great potential.

31 inch tires are like new

Located in Marine City

I just edited post. The tub is a 78, and evidently the tailgates were options then. This tub did not have one.

Would you consider taking a used 1973 model wife? It's a heavy duty wide body with a loud and aggressive horn. It's going to need a rebore to be used to it's fullest potential but it does make really good chicken soup.

That's one of the best trade offers I've ever seen

Cleaned her out today to put out front for sale and noticed a few things.

It has an older set of 4 point harnesses in the front.



The passenger floorboard has a minor rust hole.



The rear floor is very nice.



And I have the original seat frame for the rear, frame only. I happened to have a black YJ rear seat and it fits nicely. I'll include it with the sale.



Also, the rear driveshaft is out and needs u-joints. I have it, and it is currently being driven by the front axle.
