(01/17/2017) Nice example of a Kelly Bonanza II hardtop.

“1961 willys cj5
– kelly all steel bonanza II cab in great shape rare in this part of the U.S.
– the body shows its age and has had patch work done and the gentleman who had it obviously loved it and kept documentation from when he purchased it in 1964.
– front and rear diff recently replaced
– motor and trans in great shape, shifts and drives great for 55 years old. Last registered in Tenessee in 2016, needs a few things to be done to pass inspection nothing expensive or mechanical. I’m currently working on them so your able to get it running down the road ASAP.
Cash is the only way your gonna have wiggle room to negotiate, other classic auto for trade or O/U shot gun. I don’t need or want anything else. Making room to appease my wife, But not in a hurry to sell send an email and if your not from another country your more then welcome to come see it.”

Kelly Hardtop Rockford, IL eBay


This Kelly hardtop has side the fold outward. (the pic below might not be the actual top, but only an example of it)

” A used Jeep CJ5 8 piece aluminum top for a pre 76 cj5, I think, however, I was told it was on a 78, modified with some wood. The top has not been cut or damaged. All glass is perfect, I just decided I don’t have the time to mess with it. With new thicker weather stripping and a mod for each side of the windshield, I’m certain it would be a very cool addition, that’s why I bought it. All panels are removable which leaves just the top and the rear supports. I’ve added a pic of the door on my 77, the only real issue is the windshield, looking at it from the front, cants inwards on each side whereas the doors go straight up. The other pic with this top on the gold jeep looks to be about a 73. I’m in Rockford Illinois, buyer is responsible for shipping”
