1965 Kaiser Jeep Cj5 Willys on 2040-cars

Year:1965 Mileage:38090

Berkley, Michigan, United States

Berkley, Michigan, United States

 1965 CJ5 Jeep. 4 cylinder Hurricane  F4 - 134 cu in engine. 3 lever 4x4. Jeep has 1978 front and rear axles ( 3.54 - 1 ratio ) with front disc brakes and Warn hubs. This great swap makes the Jeep much more road friendly. Roll bar, plastic fuel tank. Transmission has been rebuilt with receipts. New : clutch, Smittybuilt seats, bikini top, rear springs, electric wipers. Tires and brakes are recent. Under dash gauges with mini tach. All lights work as they should, turn signals require turning off by hand. Speedometer is inop, but odometer works. Emergency brake works. Gas gauge sometimes hangs up. The CJ5 went thru an amateur restoration over the past couple of years by a retired gentleman that I recently purchased from. The lid to the tool box under passenger bucket has had a lock added, which was a great idea. The pans were replaced, with new steel being stitch welded in. This was done nicely. Nice fabricated steps. The tub and frame are solid. The paint is simply driver quality but fresh, respectable enough yet can enjoy without worrying about damage. Runs very good, might benefit from a carb rebuild but runs fine. Under the hood is pretty much original and very sanitary. I bought this for my wife and I to use up at our cottage for running around town / beach. I should have taken my wife with me when checking the CJ out. She has had knee replacements and can not get up and in as well as out comfortably so it is being resold. This is the ONLY reason for selling. Affordable fun, for a solid, respectable, mechanically sound vintage CJ5. Comes with an original owners manual as well as a Chilton repair manual.

I am extremely honest when selling a vehicle, and my feedback reflects this.The Jeeps reserve is exactly what I paid. Pictures to be posted later today.

Payment to be made by paypal or in person with cash only. 72 hrs for paypal payment. 5 days for in person cash payment.

Shipping would be the sellers responsibility both cost and arranging, but I will assist with the pickup of the CJ5.

I have the Jeep for sale locally as well, so reserve the right to end auction if early if need be.

On Jul-23-14 at 13:31:25 PDT, seller added the following information:

 The CJ5 only comes with the new Bestop brand Bikini top. There is no full soft or hard top or doors. What you see in the pictures plus owners manual and a repair manual. Also have 2 new oil filters.

Chrysler recalling 644k more Dodge Durango and Jeep Grand Cherokee SUVs over brakes

Wed, 02 Apr 2014 10:15:00 EST

Early last month, we reported on Chrysler issuing a preemptive, proactive recall for about 25,000 units of the Jeep Grand Cherokee and Dodge Durango. The issue revolved around a brake system that wasn't causing any actual problems, but delivered an unsatisfactory brake feel, so Auburn Hills called in a good 25,000 of SUVs around the world, including 18,700 in the United States.
Now Chrysler, having apparently determined that the brake problem on its sport utes is actually much bigger than it initially realized, has drastically broadened the scope of the recall. As a result, the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration has issued a recall for precisely 655,354 examples of the Grand Cherokee and Durango, covering the 2011 through 2014 model years. In addition, Chrysler is recalling 42,380 units in Canada, 21,376 in Mexico and 159,685 overseas.
The problem which Chrysler found revolves around the brake booster, whose center shell has been found to be subject to corrosion, allowing water to get into the brake system. That water in turn could freeze, preventing the brakes from working as well as expected.

Toyota, Lexus dominate KBB's Best Resale Value Awards

Tue, 19 Nov 2013 18:30:00 EST

Toyota and Lexus stormed the 2014 Kelley Blue Book Best Resale Value Awards, winning a combined 18 categories including best brand and best luxury brand. This marks the third year in a row that both automakers have won the Brand and Luxury Brand resale value awards. In all, Toyota won 11 categories and Lexus won seven.
Honda made a good showing, as well, winning two segments (Accord Plug-In Hybrid and Civic Si) and putting one car on the top-10 Best Resale Value list (CR-V). Chevrolet did even better, winning two segments (with the V6 Camaro and the Corvette) and placing three cars on the top-10-overall list (again, the Camaro and Corvette, plus the Silverado 1500).
The other winners came from Jeep, Dodge, Infiniti, Subaru and Audi. To give you a clearer picture of the Toyota and Lexus domination, their 18 mentions represents more than half of the 34 awards (including the top-10-overall list).

Chrysler adding 200 jobs at Ohio Jeep Wrangler plant

Fri, 15 Mar 2013 15:43:00 EST

Chrysler is betting that the Jeep Wrangler will continue its strong sales surge as it continues to push the legendary brand out across the globe. The Auburn Hills automaker is reportedly adding 200 workers at the Toledo, Ohio plant that builds the Wrangler. What's more, those new hires will be at their posts quickly - they'll be on the job by April 1. Of those 200 workers, 130 employees will be there to relieve those who need breaks.
Why do they need so many relief workers? The Toledo Jeep Complex is currently working at a torrid pace with two ten-hour shifts. A third shift has been ruled out for the moment because of a production botttleneck - the plant's paint shop is already maxed out. According to Reuters, Wrangler production in 2012 cleared 200,000 units, and US sales were up by 16 percent.
Another part of the Toledo plant is presently down as Chrysler retools the line to build Jeep's divisively styled Liberty replacement, the Cherokee (seen in our gallery below). Production for the new model is scheduled to begin toward the end of May.
