This is a 1978 Jeep CJ7 Golden Eagle . I am listing this for my brother in law, Tom. He bought this new in 1978 and drove it many years. around the late 90's he restored it completely . He could not get the new engine to run so he just put it in his garage and it sat there until this year when he decided to get it running, fix it up and sell. This Jeep is amazing ! As you can see he put a lot of time and money into this jeep. Everything is new but 22 years old. The Jeep has 126,876 original miles on it before restoration. The engine , tires ect. have no miles on them. It has a new Chevy 350 V8, 4 bolt main, Rochester carburetor , new 26 gallon fuel tank with skid plate, new Warn XL 9000 winch, fog lights, KC lights (very bright !) new front bumper and grill guard, Tom had the rear bumper and tailgate made and is awesome. This has a new sunroof and seat belts (lap belts), new front seats, new dash board gauges, stereo and carpet. The back seat is original and has the Levi Strauss buttons on it and is in good shape. There are 5 toggle switches on the bottom of the dashboard which turn on the KC lights, fog lights, secondary electric radiator fan, back up / under hood lights, and interior lights under dash. This has 2 batteries which you can connect together with a solenoid which has a switch on the dash , an auxillary electric radiator fan, 2 air compressors ( 1 for air shocks, lines are run but not hooked up, and 1 for air lockers, lines are run but not hooked up, lockers not installed in diff's) second air compressor has hose fitting for filling up tires. We installed a new HEI distributor, starter and platinum spark plugs in march. This Jeep has new Rancho shocks which have adapters to make them air shocks. This Jeep also has a cb radio, a center tuff box and a rear tuff box, 2 pair tire chains and tensioners, bumper jack, ax , shovel (in tailgate). We just installed (Midas installed) a new brake system, new master cylinder, drums, rotors , pads and fluid. This Jeep comes with 2 sets of tires and wheels, there are 5) 12.5 x 33 tires on the gold powder coated rims and 5) 14.5 x 33 monster swampers on the aluminum rims. All rims are 15 . These aluminum rims are bead lockers so you can run very low air pressure in the tires and the tires will stay on the rims. Then with the air compressor and included hose you can air the tires up. There are 2 1/2 hub extenders and balance rings on all hubs. Tom painted the dark brown color (PPG paint & clear coat) and all the gold is powder coating. The golden eagle decal on the hood is original. This Jeep runs great ! We have driven it around the neighborhood and it is a blast to drive. The transmission is original and is a 4 speed. The front diff, transfer case, and rear diff are also original. Last week we took the Jeep to Midas and they did a front end alignment. The Jeep has no air conditioning and we wouldn't run the tires ,( either set) , on the highway, these tires, all 10, are 22 years old and might delaminate when they get hot. For city driving and off road they should work fine. We tried the winch in my shop and it is very strong, we wound the cable up straight and tight. The tail gate is custom made and has a shovel, ax, and bumper (high lift) jack in it. On the outside it has a spare tire and 4) 5 gallon gas cans which are powder coated. 2 are good, 2 have rust in them. The steering wheel is removable and there is a push button start switch, you turn the key to on (if you turn it to start, nothing happens ! ) turn the key to on then press the push button to start. This Jeep has a carburetor with electric choke so it takes a few minutes for the engine to warm up. If the Jeep sets for a few days without running it can be a little hard to start, might need to install a check valve in the fuel line to the carburetor . The windshield is new and the rest of the glass is in great shape, Back window has some small scratches . This Jeep has a new exhaust system, 2 new mufflers , 2 new converters. Now for the flaws, the drivers side door has a small hairline crack about 1 1/8 lond in the metal under the window inside (see pictures), the rubber boot on the shifter is cracked, the transmission has a small leak. The new radio is possessed !! We bought this radio from retro manufacturing in april and installed it. When the key is on, engine off, it sounds great ! When you start the engine it has a weird sound on it. I called retro and they said it was a bad ground, I tried several more ground points but sound would not go away. sent radio back to retro and they said it was good, might be wiring harness. Got radio back, installed new wiring harness and sound came back. The radio has usb, bluetooth and RCA jacks , have not tried any of these features. The old radio is a Kenwood cassette player and it worked good. This Kenwood is coming with the Jeep. The clutch pedal has a small popping sound sometimes when the pedal is coming up, not every time, just once in a while, linkage might need lube, clutch is new but might need to be looked at and adjusted. The original water temp gauge is not hooked up because we put in a new temp gauge and could not put 2 gauges on 1 sending unit. This original gauge is part of the speedometer dial. The engine oil pan gasket leaks a little. The brake pedal seems a little soft, that is why we took it to Midas and they replaced everything, all the brake components. The brake pedal is better than it was when we took it in, and the brakes work good. I guess we are used to power brakes and these are not power brakes. When the alignment was done they could not get the steering wheel straight, it is turned to the right just a little. This is all the flaws we see with the Jeep.The Jeep includes a lot of spare parts, many manuals, extra carter carburetor and jets, new Warn hubs, old Kenwood radio with cassette player, KC and fog light covers. This Jeep is very special and needs to go to a good home. It needs some TLC, but is one of a kind.Payment will be $1000.00 right after auction is over , thru paypal, and the balance will be a certified check (cashier's check) or maybe direct deposit ? Buyer is responsible for all transportation and shipping costs. Remember there are 5 loose tires to ship along with the Jeep. We will help however we can to box things up or tie things down on transporters trailer. We can take the wheels down to a shipping company and ship them separate if needed. This Jeep is sold as is. Please email me if you want more pictures or have any questions. Thanks for looking !!!!!
