Tim spotted this one. Looks promising.


“A 1961 Jeep CJ5 with Warn Overdrive. This jeep has 68,000 original miles. With the exception of the tires and new suspension, the Jeep is all original as factory shipped. It is in very good condition, very reliable, and very gently used. Vehicle was acquired 20 years ago from a PA estate sale.

The original body has been patched. The frame is solid. The body under carriage has surface rust, and was patched, as to be expected for a 57 year old vehicle, but is very solid for its age. The body was repainted to match the original color (sky blue). The paint is in good condition, but certainly not show quality.

This jeep, starts, stops, and drives very nicely. The electrical system is in good shape, everything works. The charging system, lights, and horn all work, as does the heat. The engine is reliable, but could use a rocker arm adjusting. It is what you would expect from an engine with only 68,000 miles on it.

It has been in dry conditioned storage for the past 20 years. It has seen less than 1000 miles in the last 20 years, primarily trips to and from the beach, but not on the beach. It was last registered in 2013. It does not have a top as it is not driven in foul weather or winter. It is started each Spring and Fall.
