1983 Jeep CJ CJ5


Stunning RUST FREE1983 Jeep CJ5 14,449 Original Miles!

Rare ultra low mileage “Barn Find” 1983 Jeep CJ5 (last year of the CJ51 of 3,085 made). This Jeep is veryclear and rust free. I purchased the Jeep from a local fire department who used the Jeep for fire evacuations and brush fire mitigation. It is drives easily in the mountains, shifts perfectly and handles well on the the highway. This Jeep spent its life inside a garage and was used during the summer months for the fire department (no top). This is a piece of history, very rare and extremely low miles. It would make the perfect summer cruiser, weekend warrior or addition to your collection.


Stock 6 cylinder 4.2L 258. This engine runs great and idles perfectly. I do not notice any oil leaks after driving it however the originalplastic valve cover does have minor seepage and could use a new gasket. The Jeeppassed Colorado emissions with flying colors.

Transmission/Drivetrain/suspension/Transfer Case:

The 4speed manual transmission is a T176 that shifts perfectly! There is no whining, crunching, vibration or chatter. The clutch is tight and smooth, the transfer case is a Dana 300 that shifts easily in and out of 4x4 and is indicated on the dash. The suspension is all stock and drives very smooth without any vibrations, clunks or noises.


The tires have a lot of tread life remaining, they are Bias ply tires, which is great for off road but louder then radial tires. The wheels arefactory steel white wheels in excellent condition.


The paint is stunning, shiny and very reflective. This Jeep is RUST FREE. The body is in excellent condition and does not have any significant dents. It has a couple small dings on the hood, the bottom of each front fenders are dinged, it does have miscellaneous scratches, chips and wear that is normal for a 35-year-old vehicle.On the windshield frame there are a few small holes that have black caps, this is where an emergency lamp was once installed.In the rear of the tub, there are several holes on the rear of the tub for where the water tank/evacuation apparatus was mounted. I noticedoverspray in a few places, looks like the Jeep was repainted at some point.


The interior is original. The front seats are black with minimal wear. Everything works on the dash, the heater, wipers,head lamps, gauges, odometer and speedometer all are sound. There is not a radio on this jeep but there are speakers mounted I think this was for a CB radio. The dash pad does not have any cracks. Seat belts work great; the roll bar was painted black with a texture paint. The floors havesome wear and the back floors have the most wear where the water tank was located.
