1979 Jeep CJ-5

This burgundy Jeep CJ-5 is part of the highly sought-after limited Golden Eagle edition. The classic American icon is emphasized by the eagle emblem spanning the hood and decals on the side. The CJ-5 was so popular, its production run spanned 30 years (making it the longest production run of any Jeep).
