Blaine shared this CJ-5, noting the hardtop looked unusual, which the rear of it does. After some research, I felt it is a Koenig Jiffy Cab 520 for the CJ-5 (see an Aug 1957 brochure here). This is the first time I’d noticed that the Jiffy Cab 520 had an unusually wide rear door with slim sides (not room for side windows in the back).





“The jeep is pretty-much untouched and original (except for the paint). Last year before AMC bought Jeep. It has the factory 3.7l Dauntless V6 motor, three-speed transmission and factory PTO winch. Split bench seat.

The motor is strong with as-new oil pressure. A prior owner put a 3.8l intake on it so it can use the Delco electronic ignition. Dual exhaust, as new. Transmission good as are the brakes. I hate antique cooling systems, so a new radiator and heater core. Headlight replacements should be in today (3rd), LEDs with glass faces.

The paint job was for protection since it came to the coast, mediocre base coat, clear coat. The hard top was bought when the Jeep was new. Neither roof or the body show rust, it came from Talent, very dry country. It has a mis-matched tire, and needs little jobs for it to be the daily driver.

This is an old Jeep, old school. No power steering, just a big steering wheel. No power brakes or cruise control. Early Jeeps are strong and reliable, but have little in common with modern Jeeps.

I am willing to consider trades, even non-vehicle, if the trade seems right, or $6k. I have varied interests.”
