Speaking of unique Surreys, Mike wrote the following Comment:

“Back in 1962, One of my dad’s favorite hangouts, Lee’s tavern on Crooks Ave. in Clifton, NJ bought a special order CJ5 with a pink surrey fringe top and matching upholstery. It was the talk of the town. This Jeep was a double twist on the phrase “special order”. It was a first generation Tuxedo Park model with the featured color scheme of white body with red grille and red wheels, along with the surrey top and seat covers which were installed over stock upholstery at the factory. The local legend story at the time was; He had to wait 6 months for delivery.”

So, I spent some time searching for a CJ-5 Surrey picture. I didn’t find any real ones, but I did find one toy:  A CJ-5 toy from 1960.
