$22,000  |  Private Party  |  Jefferson City, MO


Classic 1976 Jeep CJ-7 Renegade with iconic original AMC 258 ci. I6 and Levi's interior available now from private seller in Jefferson City, MO for $22,000. Inquire today or make an offer for this one-of-a-kind cruiser.

The seller reportedly purchased this Jeep from the previous, long-time owner out of the Pacific Northwest. He was an avid “survivalist” and had outfitted this Jeep as his bug out vehicle. To that end, for the last 15 years the Jeep was kept in ready-to-go condition in a climate controlled garage where he started it monthly. Over that time period the Jeep only traveled approximately 300 miles, as evidenced by the last oil change documentation. However, at 92 years old he could no longer operate the clutch and felt it was time to find a new caretaker for the Jeep.

During the current seller's ownership, the Jeep was returned to a more factory-correct appearance with  original and rare parts that are not in reproduction such as the 1976 specific Levi tan seats, one-year-only factory radio, original aluminum slot wheels, and other items.

About the Jeep CJ-7

The Jeep CJ-7 was introduced for the 1976 model year as a continuation in a long line of civilian-oriented Jeep models. The CJ-7 was offered concurrent to the CJ-5, which had been in-market since 1955, but was distinguished by being 10 in. longer. Additionally, it offered upgraded suspension and Quadra-Trac 4-wheel drive.

Several engine and transmission options were available during its 11-year run, including:

  • 150 ci. / 2.5L AMC I4
  • 151 ci. / 2.5 L Iron Duke I4
  • 232 ci. / 3.8L AMC I6
  • 258 ci. /4.2 L AMC I6
  • 304 ci. / 5.0L AMC V8
  • 145 ci. / 2.4L Isuzu C240 I4 Diesel (export only)

The engines were mated to a 3-speed automatic, 3-speed manual, 4-speed manual, or 5-speed manual depending on the year and motor. Additionally, it offered a Dana 20 transfer case until 1980, after which the Dana 300 was offered.

Some of the special edition CJ-7 trims and packages off and on, included the Renegade, Laredo, Golden Eagle, Golden Hawk, Limited, and Jamboree Commemorative Edition (one of the rarest Jeep editions ever made). The Jeep CJ-7 Renegade for 1976 offered a rear-mounted swing-away spare tire carrier and special Levis brand badging and interior featuring weather-resistant vinyl bucket seats in either blue or tan, plus matching rear bench, instrument panel pad, and padded sun visors.

What is the Jeep CJ-7 Worth?

Today's average sales price for the Jeep CJ-7 is approximately $23,400, per sales data compiled by CLASSIC.COM. Of course, this is an aggregated figure that blends condition and trim levels throughout the entire production run.

This example offers a solid maintenance history, original powertrain, and original paint. The seller has also gone to lengths to source original Renegade trim options and features. It's well-situated for a further refurbishment, or can be enjoyed as-is by an enthusiast or collector.


Features & Specifications

This 1976 Jeep CJ-7 Renegade is presented with original, single-stage Sunshine Yellow (6V) paint and factory Renegade decals in gold. The paint presents well and has patina consistent with a 48 year-old vehicle. Scratches and minor dents are evidenced around the entire body. Paint chips are abundant on the grill, windshield frame, and forward face of fenders from having spent time being towed behind a motorhome by a previous owner. Decals show cracking and some fade but are complete and correct for the year.

The seller further reports that no major accidents or body work has been performed, and that there is no major rust or rot other than minor surface rust on underbody components. Floor pans are solid and original. The previous owner sprayed the floor pans black after the original paint had rubbed down to bare metal, but they have since been resprayed with a close matching yellow. All lights and gauges function as they should. Original clock lens is cloudy but clock functions. Original radio function is unknown and it is currently only for appearance.
