Classic Car Overview

We love the CJ5 because its at the intersection of where the military-developed Jeeps really began to evolve into the all-purpose 4x4s we know today. This 1964 Jeep CJ5 is one of the best examples of that transition. Its from one of the most interest years in the companys history, and this one was given a two-year restoration that is the right mix of accurate and capably upgraded. The CJ5 has the right-size wheelbase to be an effective off road machine, and this one seems to amplify that ability. You can see that from the moment it arrives with an upgraded front bumper that has a bull bar, fog lights, and an integrated winch. The rear is just as useful with a proper trailer hitch and six-pin electrical connection. This was a long-term restoration project, and the consigner talks about taking the body and frame down to metal to make sure the fundamentals are right. This CJ is done in a military-style matte green, and so its not meant to be a shining star (in fact, the only start is the black Army one on the hood.) Instead, the finish is there to remind us of a Jeeps useful life. Still, there is a little room for flair, but even then, its done to upgrade the ruggedness. You see in in places like the diamond plate rockers, diamond plate cab corners, and the polished wheels that allow for upgraded tires. And cool as this one looks, youll also love it for its history. The Willys name disappeared in 1963 and the Kaiser-Jeep badging began to appear in 1965. So if youre a true vintage 4x4 fan, the 1964 one is an interesting crossroads where its the first true vehicle from the Jeep brand name, and at the same time, its the last one to hold the Willys badging. How cool is that? Theres always an industrial ruggedness that makes a Jeep like this attractive. Thats why the restoration included liner paint protecting and sealing the floors. There are plenty of cool vintage elements, like the classic steering wheel and four-wheel drive instructions affixed to the dash. But youll also appreciate this one for its well-integrated upgrades. For example, the new seats are made from a custom frame, have seatbelts, and are finished in a durable vinyl. Theres now a modern AM/FM/CD stereo w/Bluetooth in the dash, and its marine-grade weather resistant unit ideal for a Jeep thats out in nature. The roll bar is always a handy upgrade, and it also allows you to install the bikini top any time you want to keep the sunshine off your shoulders. The rear has custom lockbox for valuable as well as a 1,600-watt power inverted and 12-volt outlets. So this go-anywhere Jeep is also a mobile party platform. Another cool/classic element of this CJ is under the hood. Its the Willys Hurricane engine thats based on the Go Devil motor that helped win WWII. Most CJ5s dont have this powerhouse, but it is correct at home in this earlier model. The 134 cubic-inch inline-four was not about all-out power, but the big reason why the military choose Willys for manufacturing the wartime was that the motor provided good torque and was as reliable as an American soldier. Just like the rest of this Jeep, there have been the right investments in this powerplant, including a complete overhaul of the motor. So today this CJ fires up easily, and the rebuilt three-speed manual transmission shifts with accuracy. With the proper 4x4 transfer case and upgraded BF Goodrich All-Terrain tires, this Jeep still retains its go-anywhere attitude. The sale not only comes with an owner manual and car cover, but also a long list of work done to this special Jeep. So call for the full details. Its a great history piece thats been restored to make sure that it still lives up to its iconic status on or off-road. This true American hero is ready for its next patriot. Call today!!!
