1979 CJ-7 Ultimate Beach Cruiser

The 1979 CJ-7 Ultimate Beach Cruiser was a full frame off restoration at NFI Empire. At NFI Empire, we do not overlook a single detail; that attention to detail can be seen in all our builds. Follow each build or restoration and you will see the process from beginning to end. We treat every restoration like it is our own vehicle. Not a single portion of the restoration is outsourced; we buy, sell, and build within our Pennsylvania facilities. We are located in the industrial heart of Erie PA where we were founded on hard work and dedication.

1979 CJ-7 Renegade Ultimate Beach Cruiser. This Jeep is very rare, the motor was completely rebuilt. It has the AMC 304 V8 Columnshift automatic with tilt stearing and quadra drive. The Jeep sits perfectly on Mickey Thompson wheels and 33 inch BFG tires  with a 3.5 inch ProComp Suspension Lift.

We used OEM decals from Phoenix Graphix and all of the stainless accessories were provided from Kentrol.  The cockpit is all new Best Top seating and we used our own proprietary liner on the floors and roll cage to provide a rugged and clean look.

A new dash from 4 wheel parts and we used a Retro Sound Blu-Tooth stereo and Fo-Cal speakers in both the dash and center speaker pod.  All of the gauges are new from Omix-Ada along with a new wiring harness from Painless Performance. 

The Jeep has a Smittybilt roof rack along with a bestop bimity top. Don't wait long, your second chance to own this Jeep won't last long.

The Story

Presque Isle Partnership decided they wanted to offer something to the public far greater than anyone in the past but they needed professional help.  Our paths crossed when they learned about the explosive growth of our company. We started to put our vision and ideas into a real life opportunity.  Together, we decided we would build a raffle Jeep, THE ULTIMATE BEACH CRUISER PACKAGE.  Our skilled group of craftsmen were determined to showcase our talents locally. A Southern sourced 1979 CJ-7 was the canvas our crew started with, a completed frame off restoration is what we ended with.  This CJ brings together history, pride, passion and skill.  Anyone will has the chance to call this amazing CJ-7 their own!" 

The Jeep was raffled off November 2017 the winner chose the cash, so your second chance to own this Jeep is now! 


The Presque Isle Partnership owes a great debt of gratitude to the entire crew at NFI. The hard work, dedication and craftsmanship that went into this Jeep truly reflects the core values of your business. We placed our trust in your team to bring to life an idea that will impact so many. You simply rocked it. We are beyond thrilled with the finished product and can't wait to start showing it off! It has been an absolute pleasure working with you. Looking forward to a healthy & lasting relationship.
