1965 CJ-5 Tux Park IV “Surrey” Lake Murray, SC $38,500

• CATEGORIES: CJ5, Features • TAGS: .

Ted shared this unusual blend of a Surrey and a Tux Park. It sure looks nice. The seller doesn’t mention that the Surrey upgrades are incorrect for this model, but the seller is correct that if you want something unique to bring to a jeep event, this qualifies.

“1965 Jeep CJ-5A Tuxedo Park Mark IV – An “upscale” Jeep was named after the upscale Tuxedo Park in New York, which was the birthplace of the tuxedo. Elvis drove a similar Jeep in the 1965 movie “Tickle Me” which also starred Julie Adams. Tuxedo Park Jeeps were also driven in President Lyndon Johnson’s inaugural parade in January, 1965.

This special edition Jeep came standard with chrome bumpers, wheel covers, column shift, fold-down rear license plate, fold-down windshield, and a little more highway-friendly rear gear. Standard running gear is a 4-cylinder engine and 3-Speed manual transmission. Optional equipment on this one includes the surrey interior & top, 4-Wheel-drive, and “full” passenger seat. It has been retrofitted with seat belts for safety. Just like Elvis’ Tuxedo Park, this one is finished in Marlin Blue. Continue reading

1959 CJ-5 Pearl River, NY $9000


The body work on this appears well done. It’s got some non-jeep rims on it. I’m wondering if those front rims have been enlarged so that the rims would fit over the hubs.


“Willys cj5 runs and drive’s. Barn find restored a few years ago and stored since. Previously sitting since 1970. No body filler, had panels cut out and replaced. Transferable registration”

1947 CJ-2A & 1968 CJ-5 Pleasanton, CA


It’s unclear if if either of these are running or not. The CJ-2A is priced at $4000 and the CJ-5 at $8750. The prices were calculated based on a vehicle appraiser. Looks like the appraiser doesn’t know jeeps and misled the owner on their value. You can see lots of photos at https://judysjeep.com

“1947 Willys Jeep for sale. Have the pink slip – not registered. Original owner. Has some surface rust. Had appraisal done by auto appraisal company. Jeep was used on a ranch and then stored in a barn. Currently stored inside a facility.”

1959 Zamboni FH Wilmington, NY Make Offer

• CATEGORIES: CJ5, Features, Unusual • TAGS: .

This is a unique item that Roger Martin spotted. If you are a CJ-5 collector, you probably don’t own a CJ-5 chassis sporting an original Frank Zamboni-created Model FH!


“This is a 1959 FH model zamboni built by Frank Zamboni himself. The serial number is FH197 less than 20 of these were ever built. It is the high capacity model designed for outdoor ice rinks. It needs a complete restoration it’s built on a Jeep cj5 frame and Jeep 4cyl concerted to propane. It was running and being used in Lake Placid up until about 6 years ago when a new machine was purchased. At that time this one started to be stripped down to restore bc it’s such a fascinating piece of history, but have run out of time to put into it. I am going to put the listing up for 7 days no reasonable offer will be refused”
