1971 CJ5 "Dorothy"

Here is the newest addition to the family. We moved my 89yr old Grandma to Siloam Springs about a month ago to live with my Cousin and I seen this Jeep setting behind the neighbors house about 3 acres away. Walked over and took a quick look. I have thought about it a lot since then so I made arrangements with the owner, went up there today to visit my Grandma and buy a Jeep. I am naming it "Dorothy" after my Grandma since that is how I found it.

This is what I know... which could be wrong

1971 CJ5
Buick V6
Soft top & doors are in good shape.
Needs a little TLC

Man that is one sweet trailer. Tilt bed and all. Just as nice as a roll-back.

Great find and it looks like it's been well taken care of . From the pics, there no obvious rot. How's the frame and undercarriage look?

Frame looks good. Body mounts need to be replaced and mounts worked on a little. I am going to finish my bumper for the YJ and then clean the Garage up and pull Dorothy in for the winter. I will probably 1st tackle the brakes and figure out why the Tranny is popping out of 2nd. Syncros or mounts, or etc....

Welcome to the club. There are a ton of upgrades and mods for your year. Some simple and easy, some a bit more costly and entailed. You will find driving one of these ECJ5's a blast, and since they are getting rare, everybody wants to stop and talk to you about it.
BTW, I'm assuming those are Armstrong tires. I had a set of wide XT Commandos with that tread pattern. They were bias ply so they rode like crud, but the tread pattern was the best one I ever owned.

Yes the tires ride horrible! That have sat so long they have flat spots.
