1986 Jeep CJ-7


A few notable features distinguish this particular Jeep.

  • The original owner had the Jeep 30 years AND……. NEVER REMOVED THE ROOF.

  • Roof was removed only once. That was within the last few weeks, for curiosity.

  • Fully loaded LAREDO model with…..


Vehicle history:

This was a 1-owner Jeep, bought new by a fairly well off owner of a larger HVAC company. He had used the Jeep only sparingly. Specifically, it was used exclusively for his 2-time/year northern fishing trip.

The Jeep was never winter driven, dealership maintained, and always stored indoors.

In addition to never removing the top, the backseat was never sat in. The passenger seat was only used by his companion dog.

When new, all the decals were removed at the dealership, on request of the original owner; that is, with the exception of the LAREDO decals on the hood.

Short story long…

I looked a very long time for the best CJ-7 I could find.

At times, I thought I’d never find anything, and maybe I was just being unreasonably picky. Because I wanted ORIGINAL (nothing “restored”), my search literally took years.


Restored Jeeps are everywhere and, to me at least, represent nothing special. I believe the true collectibility of a restored vehicle vs. genuine original is a comparison of polarities.


(past a lot of disappointing trips, and aggravation).I found the Jeep I dreamt of. Unfortunately when I found it, it wasn’t for sale. The culmination of my search for the ultimate original Jeep seemed to result in a stalemate. I offered more and more $. When I'd given up, it seemed that no money would buy it. Then one day, I guess the stars aligned and the Jeep came our way! The price, well… it was a real doozie but, like I said… I wanted it, and I justified it. It was a premium dollar but, it is a really premium little rig. Also, it meant the end of a long search.

Epic ridiculousness:

So, you’re probably wondering why in the world is it being offered for sale. Simple - - In the end, and after all…. I don’t like it.

Like I said, epic ridiculousness.

I realize and, yes… I know how stupid that sounds. I don't need comments or more embarrassment for sharing the truth though. I just don’t think Jeep ownership is for us.

You see... When I started searching for a Jeep CJ-7 like this one, I was a bit younger. Now, I see that this is probably just not for me. I realize I am spoiled to the point of rotten.

At 1st, when we got the Jeep home, I was so thrilled with the condition and that my search was over. My wife too. We marvelled at the dash with it’s chrome bezels, bright indicators, and even what I think may be actual glass lenses. The nearly end less array of knobs and switches appealed to the ’70’s era 6-year-old in me. It’s just so so so cool.

Then, we drove it. It wasn’t quite what I’d expected. It’d been years since I’d really driven one before. There’s been Cadillacs and Mercedes Benz in the meantime. Somewhere along the way, I got soft I guess. The joy of driving the Jeep was shortlived, and soon wore away. And by soon, I mean within days.

No problem, I thought. I figured we’d squirrel the Jeep away somewhere. We collect vintage cars anyway. Haggerty collector guide ranks these at the near-top of their list as excellent investment, with skyrocketing values. Idea was I’d tuck it away in a corner. Maybe one day it'd be worth what we'd paid. Finding room was no problem; after all, it’s quite little.

Diary of a madman:

As mentioned, I parked the Jeep. The when negotiating walking away from it, around the front corner, I hit the front bumper, got twisted, and suffered a leg injury. I won’t get into details…. It’s a stupid mishap and injury. Shouldn’t have happened. Freakish incident. As I lay there, my wife came out. I calmly asked for the First Aid kit and we tried to set part of my leg back in. Two days later now. I’m sore, soured, my weekend is ruined, all my summer boating plans gone, and I am upset.

As I type this, I’m sitting comfortably at my desk, my leg set on a chair, and my mind set on an unreserved sale.


Buy it, pay for it, have my wife arrange delivery for you, just get it out of here.


I’d say that, in our experience, most (maybe 75%) American destinations fall between the 15-hundred to 2-thousand dollar range. To play safe, please budget for at least that amount.

Please also note that, as mentioned, my wife has become pretty adept at making all the arrangements so you get your car as quickly as can be.


Everything is perfectly transferrable and will be signed over and taken care of for you.

The only extra cost is a $120-150 customs brokerage fee. My wife has everything ready to go for the Jeep, and will only need your information filled in, once the sale is completed, to finalize the ownership.

I’m happy to answer any inquiries, so feel free to write. I welcome and encourage anyone’s questions. We welcome 3rd party inspections, and encourage them. As well, we invite anyone wishing to see in person and will happily accommodate.

If you’d like to speak over the phone, please let me know and we’ll arrange a call.

Good communication is pivotal to a happy transaction.

Procedure is very important to us and we have a perfect little system that has proven very simple and effective in making everyone happy.

It goes as follows:

  • Immediately following the sale, I will ask for your buyer’s information.

  • My wife will fill in all the paperwork and title transfer.

  • Completed paperwork will be scanned and sent to you.

  • Once received, you validate the information as being correct, and confirm.

  • Then, my wife sends the banking transfer information.

  • Within 48 hours, go to your bank and make a transfer.

  • After payment is received, my wife gets to work arranging transportation/delivery.

Simple as that.

Now, just so that everyone is aware, we are not willing to deviate from our little system. We deviated twice, and been defrauded twice.

If, for any reason, this does not work for you, we’ll assume that something isn’t “right”.

Check our feedback.


Each and every one is for a 30-60 year old car or truck.

You’ll see that nobody is just “happy”.

Everyone is OVERJOYED.
