Car description

* 1980 JEEP CJ-5 * * ALL ORIGINAL! * * Very Low Miles! *
* One Family Owned! *
Before you and up for bid is my 1980 JEEP CJ-5. The particulars of the CJ are as follows:
* One family owned Colorado ranch JEEP. Bone dry...there is NO rust. It has lived a "charmed life". Summers in Colorado, winters in Arizona. Not an adverse winter condition use JEEP, and therefore, no exposure to salt, mag chloride, or other corrosive agents. Straight & clean body with excellent floors, fenders, firewall, rockers, frame, etc. (see pics)
* When not being enjoyed, the CJ was garaged & pampered. The condition it presents in, is a testament to the care it has always received.
* Very low miles. The odometer indicates 96,736, however, it is believed that approximately half of these miles are from being towed behind an RV coach. The tow bar will accompany the sale.
* A "survivor" as they say, still wearing its original Caramel paint (AMC code OR), which reflects quite well. (see pics) Original stripes still present. All original, no performance modifications, suspension lifts, etc. NO accident history!
* The only equipment not original to the CJ, were items that necessitated replacement given to time or wear. The step ups are self explanatory, the front bumper to accommodate the tow bar, winch or receiver.
* 4X4, part time, 2 high, 4 low, 4 high. WARN manual locking hubs, (e-z turn) fully functional
* 2.5 liter 151 CI, 4 cylinder "HURRICANE" Iron Duke engine. While these engines never set any land speed records, (at least none that I'm aware of), they are renown for their excellent durability. Cool running with NO annoying drips or leaks.

At 38 model years of age, while it presents with signs of use, the CJ-5 is in remarkable condition! It looks, runs, drives, and stops great! It always garners favorable compliments, and receives the "thumbs up". It is a JEEP for the purist. If you desire a cookie cutter JEEP, buy a WRANGLER and join that crowd.
It is a wonderful "toy" just as it is, or...an excellent platform for whatever you envision for your off-road adventures.
You are bidding to purchase the CJ-5, not to be the first to "look at it". Thank you.
Inspections are welcome and will be facilitated to the best of my ability prior to the auction concluding.
Please consult with your spouse, therapist, pet, or MAGIC 8-BALL, prior to placing your bid, as I am not running a clinic for the confused. Thank you.
Transportation and/or shipping is the sole responsibility of the buyer. Trailer or private hauler delivery is possible within the lower 48 states for $1000.00. (non-negotiable)
The CJ and I are presently located in the Naples/Ft. Myers vicinity. While I am confident that the JEEP could be driven home safely to anywhere in America, I don't advocate it. Older cars are just that...old. Miles from home in an unfamiliar location, is not the place to familiarize yourself with your new "old JEEP". Get it home first...I always say.
With that said, if you choose to fly in and drive home, I will gladly pick you up from the S.W. Florida International Airport in Ft. Myers.
A $1000.00 initial payment is due & payable within 24 hours of auction close, NO exceptions.
The balance is then due & payable within 7 days thereafter, under condition and arrangement made between myself and the buyer. The balance is to be paid VIA a legitimate bank to bank wire transfer, as it provides a documented record of the transaction for both parties. I will accept cash in person for the balance if your are to fly in and drive home. I do NOT accept PayPal for the entire purchase, ONLY the initial $1000.00 payment.
The JEEP and the title to the JEEP will not be released until payment in full has been received. Upon receipt of payment in full, I will overnight VIA FEDEX the title and bill of sale to the new owner. If you are to fly in and drive home, I will offer the option of hand delivering these to you upon your arrival.
* If you are "new" to eBay, have 0% feedback, or excessive negative feedback, you will need to call me prior to placing your bid and express your intentions. If you do not call prior, your bid will be cancelled and you will be blocked from further bidding. This is to preserve the integrity of the auction from disingenuous bidders.
I have set a reasonable and fair reserve for the JEEP. It is commensurate with the condition of the JEEP, the ownership history, and the low miles. DO NOT ask me what the reserve is, as I will not disclose it it. Bid what you can afford, and are willing to pay for the very nice original, unrestored, 1980 JEEP CJ-5 that you see before you.
eBay provides for only 24 pictures. I have selected pictures that best present a concise overview of the JEEP. If you would like any area specific pictures, simply ask for them.
I answer my phone quicker than I respond to e-mail, call me directly with any questions. If you reach voice mail, leave me a brief message, and I will return your call promptly.
If you would like to discuss a "buy it now", call me and present your offer. DO NOT call and ask me, "what's the lowest that you'll take?"
Buyers from the U.S., Canada, the UK, Europe, Russia, Australia and New Zealand, are welcome and encouraged to bid with confidence.
I am not a dealer, I am a collector/hobbyist. Since 2007, I have sold more than 30 of my personal vehicles through eBay. I strive to accurately and honestly represent a vehicle. Being that condition is open to interpretation, ask any and all questions freely, do not assume anything not referenced or mentioned is included.
Given the age of the JEEP, it is understood that it is being sold in "as is" condition, with no expressed, written or otherwise implied warranties.
One would be hard pressed to find as clean & original a 1980 CJ-5 as the one before you.
Thanks for looking and good luck when you bid!
