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.

Four Wheeler crowns Ultimate Factory 4x4... who wins?

Thu, 15 Nov 2012

Nearly every automaker doing business in the SUV or pickup truck segments offers a package designed to improve the off-road capabilities of its wares. But, of course, not all such factory kits are created equal. How, then, to separate the wheat from the chaff? Gather each of them up and put them through their paces, naturally.
The folks from Four Wheeler and joined forces to run just such a comparison test, with the winner named the Ultimate Factory 4x4. A total of seven vehicles showed up to the fight: the 2012 Ford F-150 SVT Raptor, 2013 Jeep Wrangler Rubicon, 2012 Nissan Frontier PRO-4X and Xterra PRO-4X, 2012 Ram Power Wagon, and 2012 Toyota 4Runner Trail and Tacoma TRD T|X Baja Series.
With the contestants in place, the whole crew put each vehicle through a battery of tests that included skidpad and acceleration measurements, a hillclimb, a rocky stairstep course and a rock garden. Considering the nature of the beasts, on-road ride and comfort were not part of the routine.

Jeep Wrangler Polar is a tasty frozen treat

Wed, 11 Sep 2013

Perhaps it's because we've seen so many kitted-out examples over the years, but it seems to us that the Jeep Wrangler tends to wear its special-edition duds better than most models. It might be the icon's familiar rectilinear proportions or the inherent bolt-on look of its extremities - bumpers, mirrors, lighting, and step rails - but we've seen precious few factory specials that look anything but excellent.
Case in point: this new Jeep Wrangler Polar unveiled at the Frankfurt Motor Show. This European-market limited-edition model is said to be a celebration of winter driving, which evidently works out to a body-color hardtop, black-accent seven-slot grille, 18-inch gloss black wheels, Trac-Lok limited-slip differential and a hard hat for the spare tire. Finished here in Hydro Blue (Billet Silver Metallic and Bright White are also available) and a black interior with Polar White accents, the Polar edition features badges displaying 78° S and 106° E longitude and latitude coordinates for Vostok, Antarctica.
This new Jeep will be available in both standard and Unlimited formats with either the 3.6-liter Pentastar gas engine or the still-not-for-US 2.8-liter turbodiesel when it bows early next year. For further details, check out our gallery above and the press release below.

Why Mopar won't release a factory lift kit for the new Jeep Cherokee

Thu, 24 Apr 2014

The Jeep Cherokee Dakar concept showed off at the 2014 Easter Jeep Safari made a lot of online friends, even the Cherokee naysayers assenting that there's a monster Jeep underneath the Cherokee's skin if you're willing to go in and get it. But after reading Road & Track's write-up of what went into creating the Dakar, particularly its lift, you'll understand why you'll probably never see the components for it in the Jeep Performance Parts catalog.
The concept's press release mentions a "prototype Jeep Performance Parts lift kit, and additional suspension modifications." The short-story explanation is that the front struts on the standard Cherokee weren't engineered to accept any amount of lift, so the long story begins with the phrase, "an entirely new suspension." Head over to RT to read the details, and don't be afraid to ogle the Cherokee Dakar gallery and another awesome Jeep fancy that won't likely crawl over the hurdles imposed by production reality.
