If you are looking at old jeeps like this (66-72) you need to be aware of some things. Most people will throw some paint, fresh fluids and tires on these old jeeps and tell them they are rebuilt. A lot of time was spent on making this jeep safe to drive on the road and to be reliable. It has never been off-road since being rebuilt. This is not your standard CJ5 and it has lots of history that comes with it. Being very rare, it certainly is a conversation piece to everyone that asks about it. This jeep drives better than any other CJ5s on the road. It stops when you want it to stop, it stays straight on the road at any speed with no wobble, and it’s easy to steer. You wont find that on any vintage jeep. It was built to drive safely on the street mainly and to kick butt off road if it needed to but never did. Every Piece of rubber on it was replaced with new. Every Copper Wire was removed and replace with new. Every seal, gasket, and anything else that did or could have deteriorated was replaced or upgraded. All the drivetrain parts were rebuilt and/or upgraded. This is the real deal and a one-of-a-kind vehicle. I actually added up all the parts and time of all three of the owners (including myself) had in this Jeep and it equals over $40,000.00. 1971 Jeep CJ5 Buick Dauntless 225 3.7L V6 Fun Facts and Specs about this Rare Jeep Very rare, Best engine jeep ever installed in their vehicles! 4x4 drivetrain is offset to the passenger side, Great for Off-Road excursions!
