1971 CJ5

1971 CJ5.
I bought this a few months ago to work on as a project and I lost my space to work and I don't want to leave it in Tahoe for the winter. I don't have any history on the jeep since it was recently bought at auction. It looks like someone started a project and then quit a ways in. I have been driving it around Tahoe and it is running and driving great. Is currently registered in CA.

225 Dauntless V6
Holly 4412 w/manual choke
Autoline HEI distributer Pertronix coil
MSD plug wires
T-18 4 speed transmission
Dana 44 rear
Wildcat 31X10.5 tires with lots of tread.
OME brakes, steering

The Good:
Engine and drivetrain are in great condition. New U joints and drivetrain components.
Engine runs strong and has brand new exhaust (duel out each side w/Dynomax Mufflers) out original manifolds.
HEI distributor and coil are brand new.
New speedometer and separate gauges
New Wiper motor and blades
Windshield is very recent
Driver rear wheel well was cut and re-welded and seat moved back and down so that anyone over 5'7" will feel much more
comfortable driving it (I'm 6'3")
New front fenders and headlights. Hood is not very old either
Brand new bikini top

The Bad:
No Horn
No heater (like zero heating pieces)
Body tub, though serviceable, is a little tired
Oddly placed gauges in new dash, interferes with the windshield latch.
No emergency brake (though there is the handle)

The Ugly:
The jeep looks like it was recently wired by a third grader. There are new wires, old wires, weirdly colored wires (going into electrical tape one color come out another). None of the new gauges are wired. I didn't make it any better as I simply Macgyver'd things so all the lights, turn signals etc. would work. Things are working, but it is a mess. I was going to re-wire it this winter.

Price: $5000

City: South Lake Tahoe

State: CA
