Upton’s CJ-5 to Stay For a Year at Motorsports Hall of Fame

• CATEGORIES: Features

Daniel Strohl reported on Hemmings that the CJ-5 used to circumvent the earth will spend a year at the Off-Road Motorsports Hall of Fame. You might remember that the Upton’s made it around the world in 1984, well all but a small, but a difficult mile of their trek in the Middle East proved impossible to complete. For two decades they held onto the jeep, then they eventually fixed it back up and drove the last mile in the Middle East in 2017.

Solid frame with some surface rust. Was Restored in the late 70’s early 80’s.

Nice photo of the Ingrums on the left and the Ogles to the right.

On Monday, the crew began their morning in Gros Morne National Park. This was their last day in Newfoundland. Monday’s goal was to reach the shorter ferry (takes 6-8 hours), spend the night on it, then head, my guess is, toward Prince Edward Island early on Tuesday morning.
