I run a registry that tracks the 1979 Jeep CJ-5 Silver Anniversary (www.79silver.com). I believe the Jeep you refer to as “1979 Jeep CJ-7 Renegade” is a CJ-5 Silver Anniversary (it is definitely not a CJ-7). I was wondering if you happened to know the owner and/or if the Jeep still exits. If so, would you please refer them to the site?
Unfortunately, I don’t know the owner or if it still exists. I took the photos in 2013, and the car has never been smogged in California (which it would have to be if it were post-1975) so my guess is that it’s either gone or moved to another state.
