1978 Jeep CJ-5 Renegade - When New

by Anthony DiGirolamo
(Reisterstown, Maryland)

Back in 1978,I became the owner of a brand new CJ-5 Renegade.

At the time, I chose the CJ-5 over the CJ-7 as I wanted my new Jeep to be as close (in spirit) to the military Jeeps I admired. Since there were no olive drab color options I chose brown as the next closest color. The Jeep (only - no AMC) dealer at the time had a brown Renegade on order and I selected that one.

I traded in my beater 1969 Pontiac LeMans and they gave me an AM-FM radio as payment! These photos were taken in 1978 and if you look closely at the interior shot, you'll see the odometer had low miles at the time.
