1966 CJ-5 Colorado Springs, CO $5000


Doesn’t run at the moment. Has a Meyer hardtop.



“Hello there today I have 1966 cj 6 that is in ok shape there is rust in the pretty typical places the floor boards are pretty much gone and I haven’t made it to them yet if you saw this post befor I have made some changes I am working on getting the back of the top back strait so the rear hatch works as it should working on some of the rust and getting it the way it should the only reason I’m trying to sell it again is that my dream vehical came up for sale and I need to sell this befor I can get anouther project. It has a dauntless v6 that was running really good and now for some reason won’t turn over right now I am working on that. The Jeep was bought by the city of aspen for snow mass ski resort and spent a majority of it life driving up and down the ski slope so the 46 thousand miles the that odometer reads I was told is accurate I’m know I’m forgetting stuff feel free to call or text with questions. My name is chad I’m asking 5000 due to its rarity but cash talks”
