1963? LBJ Tux Park IV Everett, PA **SOLD**

• CATEGORIES: CJ5, Features

UPDATE: Joe spotted this Flickr photo from 1965 that may just show this jeep when brand new.

“January 1965 Kaiser Jeep Corporation press photo of new CJ5s being delivered to Washington, D.C. for the U.S. Presidential Inauguration of Lyndon Johnson on January 20, 1965. Each float in the parade would be towed by a new 1965 CJ5.”

I hoped to find the above photo in a newspaper, but didn’t have any luck. I did find this short article from the January 30th, 1965, issue of the San Angelo Standard-Times:


Based on this article, I would guess that the white showing through from underneath the green suggests this was one of the white jeeps for the parade.


Originally posted May 04, 2022: Listed as a 1963, this was more likely a 1965 as that’s when the Tux Park IV first arrived. This jeep has a plaque indicating it was used in Lyndon B. Johnson’s inauguration parade. This was listed for $800 on FB and sold within a day. Thanks to Jordan for forwarding it to me.

“HistoricalJeep- metal tag on glove box says it was in the 1965 inaugural parade,no title,runs good, good working four wheel drive, no breaks”

1964 CJ-5A Tux Park Surprise, AZ BaT


Mike’s selling this nice looking Tuxedo Park IV. It includes a beautiful example of a Kelly Safari Hardtop, complete with the soft-top sections and one of the best examples of that top that I’ve seen. This jeep was listed on Bat (with lots of pics) and other sites, including Craigslist. The body has been restored in some places and patched on the front floors.

Year? CJ-5 Springtown, TX $3850


Listed as a 1960, it appears later than that given the fenders and grille. The dashboard is about as minimalist as they get!

1959 CJ-5 Nampa, ID $3500


UPDATE: **SOLD** Was $3500.

I’m not sure what’s going on with the hub on the driver’s side. It includes a Koenig(?) hardtop and a pto winch.

1952? M-38A1? Livingston, TX $6950


For the price, this could be worth a look. Though listed as a 1952 M-38A1, the body and front clip look like they are from a CJ-5 (except for the fact that there is no “JEEP” stamped into the cowl.


“1952 M38A1 Willys 1/2-Ton 4×4 ‘Utility Truck.’ Roll bar, rear rack, front trailer bar, front and rear hitch receivers, additional front driving lights, front brush guard. Excellent for hunting, farm or ranch.”

1965 CJ-5 Willits, CA $5000


UPDATE: Frank explained the sprayer on the side of the jeep: The sprayer in question is termed a back pump sprayer. The wildland Firefighters used this type of back pump on mop up of forest fires. The can could carry 5 gallons of water. Later came the rubber type back pump to mop up forest fires. The rigid pump was awkward when bending over spraying water and even when empty it was awkward. The rubber type back pump was like walking with 5 gallons of Jello on your back. When spraying, you used one of your fingers over the nozzle to disperse the water to cover more area. Short pieces of used cotton jacketed hose was often used on the shoulder straps on the rigid type pumps to relieve some of the “torment” to your shoulders. Both of these style pumps had nicknames that are not printable at this time.

If you are looking for a mid-1960s CJ-5, this might be a good value. It includes a 120volt mod and something on the side (water?).

1970 CJ-5 Carthage, MS $4650


It’s not currently road worthy, but it does have some interesting mods. The mod at the very rear appears to be a gas tank. I suspect the cargo area may be an animal cage of some type.
