This 1983 Jeep CJ7 is powered by a performance 383ci stroker V8 equipped with Headman headers and Edelbrock fuel injection. The body is finished in red with black removable soft doors, fender flares, and bumpers. Acquired by the seller 10 years ago, equipment includes a 9,000-lb Warn winch, auxiliary lighting, snorkel intake, and a waterproof audio system. Located in Buffalo, New York, this CJ7 is now offered with a clean CARFAX report on a clean New York title in the seller’s name.
The vehicle is finished in red and with black fender flares, doors, roll bars, and tubular front and rear bumpers. The seller indicates that paint blemishes are present around the back fender and a fiberglass crack on the hood. Auxiliary KC lights are mounted to the front bumper as well as the rear, and it has a 9,000-lb Warn winch installed. A safari snorkel is mounted to the driver's side of the hood, and the truck comes with two sets of doors and both a bikini top and a soft top. A spare tire is mounted to the rear tailgate of the vehicle.
Aftermarket chrome wheels are mounted to 37x12.5 Goodyear Wrangler tires on all four corners.
The interior is fitted with black vinyl flooring with rubber floor mats and Neoprene Racing red bucket seats with 5-point safety harnesses. An armrest with storage resides within a center console, and the back seat is upholstered in two-tone red and black vinyl. Other equipment includes a detachable three-spoke steering wheel with Jeep center logo and a Clarion marine waterproof radio head unit with remote control.
Instrumentation is housed within a chrome bezel mounted at the center of the dash, with an 85-mph speedometer, and gauges for fuel level, oil pressure, coolant temperature, and voltage. The 5-digit odometer reads just under 13k miles which is mileage since the installation of the engine, though true mileage on the body is unknown.
The 383ci stroker V8 features performance modifications, including Edelbrock Pro-Flow fuel injection as well as Headman headers. An aluminum radiator was installed for improved cooling, and an 18-gallon steel gas tank was installed. An auxiliary onboard air compressor is located under the hood as well. Maintenance history consists of a new rear end in 2019, a hydraulic Centerforce clutch in 2015, and the brake pads and rotors were replaced in 2014. Power is transferred to the rear or all four wheels through a 4-speed manual transmission and 4.88 rear end.
