In reading about the odd fire engine that this Jeep offers, I found it was a Buick derived motor whose rights were sold to Jeep for manufacture. People in the forums talk about the better torque and lighter flywheel designed specifically for the 225 over the 231 which came next and had more horsepower. But horsepower doesn’t pull you up over the rocks.
This is a great looking CJ5 that I would love to own. The blue paint with new top and just the right amount of bright work sets it off nicely. The big wheels don’t hurt either but are probably not quiet going down the road.
For sale on Detroit’s Craigslist.
