Produced by the million, the original Jeep saw service in every theatre of the Second World War and continued in military service for several decades thereafter. Marketed as the ideal work vehicle for farmers, construction workers and other trades, the first civilian Jeep - the CJ-2A - was introduced by Willys in 1945 boasting a host of refinements that its military counterpart lacked. The succeeding CJ-3B version was distinguished by a four-cylinder 'F-head' engine, replacing the original flathead four, and then in 1954 came what many regard as the definitive civilian Jeep, the CJ-5. Longer and wider than its predecessors, the 'round-fender' CJ-5 was based on the Korean War M-38A1. Under new owners Kaiser, and from 1970 American Motors Corporation, the CJ-5 would remain in production for a remarkable 30 years and in 1976 was joined by the CJ-7, which was built on a longer wheelbase and featured an redesigned and improved chassis. By this time Jeeps were being built with AMC's own engines, and the example offered here has the 258ci (4.2-litre) six-cylinder unit installed. The CJ-7 lasted in production until 1986, by which time a little under 380,000 had been built.
Imported from the USA, this customised Jeep CJ-7 retains its original chassis, body and engine, and is right-hand drive. It benefits from a complete restoration, finished in April 2021, which included zinc phosphate treatment to the chassis and a full engine rebuild. Only 267 miles have been covered since the restoration's completion. Offered with a V5C document.
