This CJ-7 was originally red but has been repainted black. The interior is in very nice condition and features a split-bench seat in front and has the optional rear seat. There are no rips or tears in the upholstery on either seat. There is carpet in the front, back seat area and cargo area. The carpet has normal wear but is in good condition overall.

The engine runs good, transmission shifts good with no abnormal noises and the transfer case and locking hubs work properly. Lights, wipers, radio and heater work properly. This CJ-7 has power steering which works properly.

It has evidence of some repair along the rocker panels on both sides and has some bubbling in the area behind the front wheels. Overall the paint is in good condition.

Overall, this Jeep is in very good shape mechanically and presentable cosmetically. It even has the owner’s manual.
