Vintage Motorcars is excited to offer this beautifully restored, 1986 Jeep CJ-7 Renegade.
“The Jeep CJ-7 replaced the low production, long wheelbase Jeep CJ-6 (the civilian version of the M170 ambulance). While more agile on the trail than the CJ-6, the CJ-7 was intended to be a more civilized and luxurious version of the CJ-5. Compared to the CJ-5, it featured a 10-inch longer wheelbase and larger openings for doors that at least could make an effort to seal out the elements and be less awkward for most folks to use and get in and out of the vehicle. The Jeep CJ-7 also had more unified styling than the CJ-5 with the removable hardtop. Part of a drive to be more urban friendly, it was also the first CJ to offer an automatic transmission as an option (the GM Turbo-HydraMatic 400). Also debuting with the TH-400 exclusively was the now famous Quadra-Trac transfer case.
Right out of the gate, it was offered with most of the same options as the CJ-5, which initially were the Renegade and Levi's packages. Of all the trim packages offered on CJs in subsequent years, only the Super Jeep and the 1979 Silver Anniversary weren't available in the CJ-7 (logical, as the latter celebrated the 25th anniversary of the CJ-5). A couple of them were exclusive to the Jeep CJ-7, however, including the Limited (1982-83) and the Jamboree (1982). It's actually quite hard to find a stripped Jeep CJ-7, as most were well equipped.
During the 1980s, changes were more cost-related than anything. The V-8 option was deleted for 1981, with minor components changing based on availability and better pricing to AMC from the industry.
Sales of the Jeep CJ-7 were so good (helped by more comfort and convenience options exclusive to it) that the CJ-5 was discontinued in 1983. Initially, Jeep purists decried this decision, and three years later, most of these same pundits were decrying AMC for announcing the end of the CJ-7 – the last of the Jeep CJ series –after the 1986 model year, ceding to the all-new Wrangler for 1987.”
If you're looking for a 1986 Jeep CJ-7 Renegade with a beautiful ground up restoration, look no further. This Jeep has been babied since it's restoration and it shows. This jeep is rust free and has been garage kept since its restoration.
Our 1986 Jeep CJ-7 is 4-Wheel Drive and powered by the popular Straight 6 Engine and 5 Speed Manual Transmission. Addition upgrades under the hood include a Weber Carburetor, A/C, and new battery. The upgraded Bilstein shocks help ensure that this Jeep is 100% turn-key and runs and drives better than it did in 1986.
The black leather interior of this beautiful Jeep is perfectly matched with a grey, near perfect, exterior. Not only has the interior been restored but it has also been upgraded to include heated seats and a center console with new, upgraded sound system.
This is the perfect Jeep for anywhere in the country. Unlike most Jeep CJ-7's available, this has A/C and heat. It also has a Hard Top which means you can drive it anytime of the year anywhere.
