For sale in our Dallas showroom is this awesome 1981 Jeep CJ8 Scrambler. This CJ8 comes furnished with a bad to the bone Deep grey Kevlar camoliner. So, you can go through any type of terrain and not worry about scratching the paint.

This is the first year for Jeep to make the CJ-8 and they only produced 8,355 of them. So, it’s quite difficult to find a CJ-8 as nice as this one. They stopped production of the CJ-8 in 1986.

The CJ-8 comes equipped with a 4.0 L six-cylinder engine with a 5-speed manual transmission that came out of a 2002 Jeep Wrangler. The original inline six engine in the CJ-8 was only putting out 110HP and the new stump pulling 4.0L out of the 2002 wrangler puts out 190HP. It also comes with a carb conversion that gives it enough torque to climb up a 90-degree wall while in low gear. All wiring has been replaced and every gauge and light works. This CJ-8 has a 3-inch lift kit that’s sitting on 36-inch Maxxis all terrain tires wrapped around 20’’ Moto Metal rims.

This very detailed restoration took a little over a year and a half to complete and attention to detail and high-end parts were the focus.

Don’t miss out on this well restored Beast. To view this 1981 Jeep CJ-8 in greater detail including HD pictures and videos, visit www.GatewayClassicCars.com. Or call 817-310-9400

1981 Jeep CJ5

1981 Jeep CJ5


Engine: 268 CID I6
Transmission: 4- Speed Manual
Mileage: 5,000 ( since rebuilt )

Gateway Classic Cars of Houston is proud to offer this 1981 CJ-5 Jeep Renegade! This one is powered by a 268 CID I6 with a T176 4-speed transmission. It has an AMC 20 and 3:31 gears and has only covered about 5,000 miles since the build. The exterior is finished in black PMG paint with a tan vinyl interior. The build was performed by Houston Gear and the quality is excellent. This Jeep is outfitted with an AM/FM radio, manual convertible top, spare tire, tilt wheel, seat belts, vinyl interior, radial tires, raised white letters and aluminum alloy wheels. The Willys CJ-5 (after 1964 Jeep CJ-5) was influenced by new corporate owner, Kaiser, and the Korean War M38A1 Jeep. It was intended to replace the CJ-3B, but that model continued in production. The CJ-5 repeated this pattern, continuing in production for three decades while three newer models appeared. "The CJ-5 has the distinct honor of being a vehicle that was hard to kill off... equaling the longest production run of note. From 1980 to 1983, the CJ-5 came standard with a "Hurricane"-branded version of the GM Iron Duke I4 with an SR4 close-ratio, four-speed manual transmission. The 258 cu in (4.2 L) AMC straight-6 engine remained available as an option, but the transmission was changed from the Tremec T-150 three-speed to a Tremec T-176 close-ratio four-speed. The Dana 30 front axle was retained, but the locking hubs were changed to a five-bolt retaining pattern versus the older six-bolt. The demise of the AMC CJ5 model has been attributed to a December 1980 60 Minutes segment where the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS) staged a demonstration to illustrate that the CJ5 was apt to roll over "in routine road circumstances at relatively low speeds." Years later, it was revealed the testers only managed to achieve eight rollovers out of 435 runs through a corner. The IIHS requested the testers implement "vehicle loading" (hanging weights in the vehicle's corners inside the body, where they were not apparent to the camera) to generate worst-case conditions for stability Don’t miss your chance to get behind the wheel of this one. Contact Gateway Classic Cars in Houston for more information. Financing and shipping options are available. Office hours are Monday through Saturday 9-5pm central time. The telephone number for our showroom is (832) 243-6220 or if you prefer, you can email us at houston@gatewayclassiccars.com.

After going through a complete body off restoration this classic Jeep is physically brand new. The “CJ” is short for Civilian Jeep as these classic machines were originally designed for WWII and were referred to as Willy’s from ’44-’53. From ’53 to ’70 Kaiser was the result of a big merger between Willy’s and an independent automaker. This CJ-7 is powered by a strong and rebuilt 258 CID I6 done by S&S Auto. The T150 3-Speed manual transmission was also rebuilt with everything being down around 5,000 miles ago.

The color is Audi Sepang Blue and really makes this jeep a unique classic. The Kevlar paint is fully capable of withstanding a hard ride off-road and looks great rolling down the highway. The Jeep also features a Smittybilt X20 10,000lb capacity winch strapped to the front bumper. This Jeep sits on a set of 17” XD Crank wheels paired with 35” Wrangler MTR tires. Moving onto the inside of the Jeep you will find the seats have been nicely upholstered with minimal wear.
