Radiators, waterpumps and heater cores have always seemed to haunt me on low mileage cars that I have owned. I think almost every car I have now has had all three of those components done. Just the way it seems to go.

My eyes are on that Jeep you have Looks really nice!

It's kind of grown on me over the summer. I have a 6 mile in-town commute, and it's well-suited to daily use. Very loaded Jeep with the luxury carpet option, 5-speed, cruise, tilt. Also has dealer added A/C which is ice cold. Paint and decals original, except one door and the tailgate have been painted.
Had a CJ in HS. Living in a rural area it allowed me and my buddies a lot of off road escapades. I beat the tar out of it and it kept going!
I own a low mileage TJ Rubicon now that I enjoy on nice days! Makes a great convertible !

Sorry for hijack, now back to the regular scheduled program!

Not a hijack at all. I had a LJ Rubicon for awhile--good daily driver for my short commute. Had a soft top only, which made it more enjoyable. I've never taken the top off the CJ. Next summer, maybe.

I had 2 cj5s one on 38.5s 14 inches of lift SBC and one on 35s w 304. I built a pulley system to lift the top off. I did that once on each jeep and never did it again always a soft top usually a bikini top. Both had full cages. I went to look at a 76 304 last week w 33s but it was gone before I got there. Loved my jeeps. Yeah she got a lot of hard use! Thatís what it was there for right.
Lousy pic of the big boy but itís all I have it would do the best wheelies! Dark Teal green w black flames was such a bad ass ride for an 18 year old. When I first got it I had 33s w 6 popper , the 38-5s w this much lift was kinda too big for anything but mud and street put it on its side in the woods a few times.

Sorry couldnít resist the jeep talk.
Apologies.

I don't mind talking about Jeeps, at all.

Since there are some Jeep fans, here are some more pics of the wife's CJ-7. It's a fairly loaded Jeep and a lifelong California desert Jeep--has the extended carpet package (in garnet), 5-speed, tilt, cruise, the chrome wheels, and dealer-added air that is polar cold. Original owner had it until 2019, then it got passed around among a few collectors and sold through Barrett Jackson a couple years ago. It is as close to a zero-rust original CJ-7 as there is--I was in the doors recently cleaning up the window regulators, and it looks like it was manufactured last week. Same for under the carpeting. The reason I ended up with this is because her father had one in the exact same color and trim when she was a kid. Plowing snow commercially with Jeeps was apparently a thing in Wisconsin back then, and he had a fleet of CJ's for some specific snow removal use--the Renegade was her father's personal plow Jeep.

I was hoping/expecting it would be just another wife request fulfilled at great expense, and she'd be over it, but she wants to keep it. I tried to sell it twice so I can have more room (I have 6 cars and can have only 2-3 at home), and was thwarted both times.

Besides being into 63 Corvettes, I am into air cooled 356s and 911s, and old trucks. The K10 is more my style.

Where's that hats off emoje? Love them all and you've got 3, at least, rides that take you on totally different places and they're all stunning.
Little bias here, I've got a '66 L72 vette, a '73 454 square body and a '70 CJ5, and they're all keepers for me.

No real idea on the history, but it looks very stock and unabused to me so I tend to think it was a pavement princess. The reason I know much of the history is that a guy reached-out to us on Facebook and told us he used to own it. I told my wife to be careful engaging (I hate FB), but it turned-out he was the person who bought it from the nephew of the original owner. He filled in a lot of blanks. Ultra-knowledgeable guy with a massive fleet of Jeeps and early Broncos. Something like that never happens with a 63 Corvette.
