You are bidding on a very rare 1973 AMC Jeep CJ5 in rust free original condition. Original V-8 304 engine (3) three speed with 8200 & change actual miles.
The Trans Am Red paint has softened to a patina red due to age after spending almost all its life in the desert southwest. The interior is also original.
It is technically on its second owner with no recorded collisions in its history nor does there appear to be any structural damage from an accident.
Normal wear, tear, minor dings and paint scratches excepted.

Spent almost its entire life in the desert southwest since purchased new.
I cannot stress enough that this 4 x 4 vehicle is rust & bondo free.
Plenty of torque is delivered from this little V8 and is a lot of fun to drive.
It still has the factory stamping on the valve cover.
Even the OEM smog air pump system is intact and functional (very rare).
This beauty is loaded with just about every option that was available in 1973 except the Renegade or Super Jeep decal stripes and power brakes.

This 4wd crawler is straight out of the early 70‘s with tasteful options.
One of the few mechanical modifications was the dual exhaust conversion.
You would think these mufflers would be loud & obnoxious, instead they have a very quite note and
sound the V8 rumble very well without any excessive decibel levels.
I think 1973, was the last catalyst free year for Jeeps from American Motors.
This is a great example of a very nice un- / non-restored original mile CJ5 with documents.
The 31” Mickey Thompson tires are new with about 300 miles on them and installed on Kelsey Hayes type deep dish chrome rims
Engine, Front & Rear axles are running Amsoil synthetic lubricants.
I haven’t got around to servicing the Transmission or Transfer Case as yet, but these fluids are available.
This is a very desirable 4X4 CJ that will hold its own with any Bronco, Scout, Range Rover or Land Cruiser.
A Great Example of a very Well Preserved JEEP with fewer than 8,300 miles on the clock.
She is a nice ride and there are not many midyear’s around in this condition.
Vehicles are only original once - this is one of them!
