   THIS 1980 JEEP CJ-7 RENEGADE WAS PURCHASED NEW ON MAY 28TH, 1980 FROM McCULLOCH BROTHERS JEEP IN DECATUR, ALABAMA BY A GENTLEMAN FROM NEARBY HUNTSVILLE, AL. HE OWNED IT MANY YEARS AND THEN SOLD IT TO ANOTHER HUNTSVILLE RESIDENT WHO OWNED IT FOR SEVERAL YEARS. IN 1999 IT WAS PURCHASED BY ITS 3RD OWNER WHO LIVED JUST SOUTH OF HUNTSVILLE. THE JEEP HAD ALMOST 90K MILES ON IT AT THE TIME OF PURCHASE IN 1999. THE THRD OWNER OWNED THE JEEP FOR 13+ YEARS AND ONLY PUT 28K MILES ON IT. THIS JEEP HAS NEVER BEEN OUT OF ALABAMA! IT HAS NEVER BEEN EXPOSED TO ROAD SALT, HARSH WINTERS, ETC. IT HAS ALWAYS BEEN GARAGED AND HAS NEVER BEEN DAMAGED. IT STILL WEARS ITS ORIGINAL CHESTNUT BROWN PAINT AND ITS ORIGINAL RENEGADE STRIPES AND DECALS! THE BODY IS NEAR PERFECT AND STILL MAINTAINS ALL OF ITS ORIGINAL STEEL BODY PANELS/TUB. YOU WILL NOT BELIEVE HOW SOLID THE TUB IS! IT HAS NEVER BEEN RE-PAINTED OR UNDERCOATED. IF YOU ARE LOOKING FOR A TRUE SURVIVOR CJ THEN LOOK NO FURTHER. HERE ARE SOME DETAILS ABOUT THIS RARE FIND,

   THE PAINT AND BODY ON THIS JEEP ARE IN EXCELLENT ORIGINAL CONDITION. YOU WILL NOT BELIEVE HOW WELL THE PAINT STILL SHINES! IT REALLY IS BEAUTIFUL AND ITS HARD TO BELIEVE THAT IT IS 33 YEARS OLD! THE ORIGINAL RENEGADE DECALS ARE STILL NICE TOO. THE BODY IS NEAR PERFECT. THERE ARE VERY FEW DINGS AND VERY LITTLE RUST TO BE FOUND ANYWHERE. THE FRAME, BODY MOUNTS, FLOORBOARDS, ROCKERS, ETC. ARE ALL ROCK SOLID WITH NO RUST. WHEN YOU CRAWL UNDERNEATH THIS JEEP IT IS VERY OBVIOUS THAT IT HAS NEVER BEEN EXPOSED TO ROAD SALT, ETC. IT IS ALSO QUITE OBVIOUS THAT IT HAS NEVER BEEN IN THE MUD. IT IS SUPER, SUPER SOLID AND SUPER CLEAN UNDERNEATH. THE ONLY RUST TO BE FOUND ON THE JEEP IS UNDER THE FRONT WINDSHIELD ON THE WINDSHIELD FRAME. IT IS MINOR AND COULD EASILY BE REPAIRED IF DESIRED. IT DOES NOT REALLY AFFECT THE OVERALL SHARP APPEARANCE OF THIS CJ AND IS QUITE NORMAL FOR THESE 30 YEAR OLD JEEPS SO I HAVE DECIDED TO LEAVE IT ALONE. IT REALLY IS AN AMAZINGLY ORIGINAL AND CLEAN CJ. IT EVEN STILL HAS THE ORIGINAL SELLING DEALERS STICKER ON THE LEFT REAR OF THE JEEP! INSIDE YOU WILL FIND THE INTERIOR TO BE 90% ORIGINAL. THE DASH IS BEAUTIFUL AND THE ORIGINAL SPORT STEERING WHEEL IS STILL PRESENT AND LOOKS NICE. THE ORIGINAL PAINT IS STILL ON THE FLOORBOARDS FRONT AND REAR (NO RHINO LINING HERE) AND THEY LOOK CLEAN. THE ORIGINAL TAN DENIM SEATS ARE ALL THERE BUT THEY ARE SHOWING THEIR AGE. THE BESTOP SOFT TOP IS IN VERY NICE CONDITION AND THE PADDED ROLL BAR COVER WAS ADDED SEVERAL YEARS AGO BUT LOOKS NEW. OVERALL, IT REALLY IS CLEAN INSIDE. THE SPEEDOMETER STILL WORKS AS DOES THE TACHOMETER, WIPERS, TURN SIGNALS, LIGHTS, ETC. THE FUEL GAUGE DOES NOT WORK NOR DOES THE HORN.

  THIS JEEP RUNS AND DRIVES WELL. THE 258 STRAIGHT 6 STARTS EASILY AND RUNS LIKE A TOP. IT DOES NOT SMOKE, RUN HOT, KNOCK, ETC. I REALLY HAVEN'T EVEN NOTICED ANY SIGNIFICANT OIL LEAKS EITHER. THE 4 SPEED TRANSMISSION SHIFTS WELL TOO WITH NO GRINDING. THE 4 WHEEL DRIVE WORKS JUST AS IT SHOULD TOO IN HIGH AND LOW RANGE. THE TIRES ARE LIKE NEW WITH LOTS OF TREAD REMAINING AND THE BRAKES FEEL  FINE. I HAVE SOME MAINTENANCE RECORDS FOR THE JEEP AND ALL OF THE ORIGINAL OWNER'S BOOKS AND DOCUMENTS. AGAIN, THIS IS A VERY NICE UNRESTORED (ALMOST UNTOUCHED) CJ. THESE ARE GETTING HARDER AND HARDER TO FIND AND ARE ONLY APPRECIATING IN VALUE.

   MANY OF MY AUCTIONS END WITH JUST A PHONE CALL. I CAN ARRANGE SHIPPING WORLDWIDE. 205-276-1918.

Jeep lays out 5-year plan, including rebirth of Grand Wagoneer and new C-segment offering

Tue, 06 May 2014 09:55:00 EST

Fiat Chrysler CEO Sergio Machionne presented a five-year plan for the company brands this morning, with Jeep first up on a long day of presentation. Jeep's head honcho Michael Manley wasted no time in laying out what the foreseeable future will look like for what he calls the "lead global brand" of the company.
Big goals for the next half-decade will include expanding the lineup from five nameplates built in one country, to six nameplates build in six countries. That expansion of models will include both a three-row competitor, and, of course, a small vehicle to slot below Cherokee. The company is also seeking to add a whopping 1,300 dealers over the next few years, to sell all this new metal, and has an aggressive goal of doubling Jeep sales by the time 2018 rolls around.
As expected, that first salvo from the off-road brand will be the debut of the much ballyhooed Renegade small crossover in the third quarter of this year. Jeep has already designated that Renegade will get refreshed for the 2017 model year, as well.

2014 Jeep Grand Cherokee Diesel and SRT climb onto stage

Mon, 14 Jan 2013 12:05:00 EST

This is indeed a case of not knowing how much we wanted something until it arrived. We've been big fans of the Jeep Grand Cherokee ever since the new model arrived a couple of years ago, and while the update you see here might seem just a slight refresh, it's actually much more than that.
For starters, the 2014 Grand Cherokee marks the return of a diesel model here in the States, with Chrysler's new 3.0-liter EcoDiesel V6 under the hood, churning out 240 horsepower and 420 pound-feet of torque, mated to an eight-speed automatic transmission. Of course, all of the Grand Cherokee's usual off-road goodies are on hand, with moderate tweaks to make it an even more capable vehicle when the going gets rough. Both the gasoline-fed 3.6-liter V6 and 5.7-liter V8 get the new eight-speed auto, as well.
The high-performance Grand Cherokee SRT also trudges on into the new model year, with very subtle tweaks found underneath the aggressive, slightly redesigned sheetmetal. The 6.4-liter Hemi V8 also gets eight-speed gearing, which Chrysler says will improve not only 0-60 times, but mid-range performance as well. Bring it on, we say.

Toyota tops Kelley Blue Book's Resale Value Awards

Tue, 27 Nov 2012 18:30:00 EST

Kelley Blue Book announced its annual Best Resale Value Award winners, and we weren't too surprised to see the list dominated by Japanese automakers - mainly Toyota and Honda. KBB hands out the awards based on the projected residual value of mostly all 2013 model year vehicles, and Toyota skated home with a number of awards including 10 of the 22 overall categories and having five of its products in the top 10 for models with best resale value. KBB's Best Resale Value Awards were announced in the same week as the ALG Residual Value Awards, and there were many similarities between both lists, especially when it came to Toyota.
To come up with its winners, KBB measures depreciation over the first five years of ownership, and looks for the cars it expects to hold its value the best after this time; on average, the report says the 2013 model year vehicles will lose 61.8 percent of its value in five years. Of the 22 categories, 15 slots were filled by Toyota, Honda and Nissan products, while the Camaro and Porsche (Cayenne and Panamera) each took home a pair of awards. If Toyota has anything to be upset about in this list of cars, it's that categories for Hybrid/Alternative Energy Car and Electric Vehicle went to the Ford Fusion and Chevrolet Volt, respectively.
The overall top 10 models for the best resale value in 2013 are, in alphabetical order:
