The Jeep CJ-7 featured a wheelbase 10 inches longer than that of the CJ-5 and lacked its trademark rear curve of the door cut outs. The other main difference to the CJ-5 was to the chassis which hitherto consisted of two parallel longitudinal main c-section rails. To help improve vehicle handling and stability, the rear section of the chassis stepped out to allow the road springs and dampers to be mounted closer to the outside of the body. It was introduced in 1976, and 379,299 were built during 11 years of production.
The CJ-7 featured an optional new automatic all-wheel drive system called Quadra-Trac, as well as a part-time two-speed transfer case; an automatic transmission was also an option. Other features included an optional moulded hardtop, and steel doors. At this time, even the passenger seat was an option. The CJ-7 was available in Renegade form with different body decals and additional equipment.
This truly exceptional example has enjoyed an extensive program of upgrades which have resulted in the phenomenal 6.6 litre V8 beast you see here. Over €100,000 was spent on this truly exceptional vehicle, now available for sale and offered with Italian registration papers.
