Well, the 1967 CJ5 just gotta go.

While I appreciate all comments to keep this, I have to say good bye to it. You see, my father kept everything. That is why the house is full of junk. I have a lot of junk!

I washed the dust off the jeep and tried to take a picture. Cannot get far enough back for a complete pix. I took a panorama and am attemptinjg to superimpose with a paintshop program. Picture is not very satisfactory. I took with flash. This did not work too well. Will continue to work on picture.

How can I post a pix? Board Rules say no attachments. If you want a pix, I will e-mail directly, if need be.

Someone pointed out the engine was a Dauntless. Yep!, there is a sticker on the cylinder bank that stated this. I could not find any other name plate etc, but it must be there somewhere.

Thanks for all your comments!!!!!!!

Here she is!

"I finally managed to generate a fair picture. Because I cannot get back far enough because of junk in garage, I took two pictures and superimposed in a paintshop program. Lens distortion at edges of picture make it look funny. I finally got the following. I removed the junk in the garage as it is very distracting to the viewer.

In no case is the Jeep 'bent". Only the panorama process distorts it."

That is one fine beauty for its age I am not a big fan of the older jeeps, but that one looks nice. Atleast sell it to an enthusiast rather than some guy who is prolly gonna tear it up/roll it off-roading.

Hey man PISSA looking jeep! I just don't understand you. You've got at least 10 people telling you that you've got a diamond in the ruff here and you're just being Chucky from the rug rats cartoon. "Well I don't know Tommy." Jees man. If you truely had the desire, you would find a way. I think these guys really know what they're talking about, especially the ones who have owned the exact jeep models as this one. Personally, I think you should do something good for YOU and not care about how you do it. Engines that don't run for a long time do take a little work to get going again but it most likely won't cost much money. Also, anything you want to buy for it, including replacement parts, are available in online catolaugs for cheep money. You don't have to worry about money as far as I can see with getting this Jeep road worthy. Oh and by the way, if my dad gave me a jeep like that, I would go nuts. Please think about it.

Found a few more things about the 1967 CJ5

I found the original owner's manual hidden away in the car. It seems to indeed be a 1967 CJ5. It looks like the windshield was changed to a 1968 or 69 version, probably when my father changed the top, post 1970.

Actual milage is, 29,970.6

Serial no is 8305 A 222542 which indicates it was built in November of 1966, which agrees with the model year.

Found the title, in my father's name, his will, and death cert. So I can put the Jeep in my name to sell!!! Found all of this with only a 6 hour search.

Boy was that fast!!!!!

Cj5 found a home!

Thanks for all the comments!

Found a nice home for the Jeep. New owner will carefully restore the CJ. Doubtless it will be back in action soon after at least a 20 year slumber!

Regards to everyone!

A good home

Well by tomorrow evening this beautiful CJ5 will be at it's new home in Portland Oregon. No, unfortunately, I wasn't the person buying it but a friend of mine who is an incredible jeep enthusiast and experienced rebuilder is the new proud owner. I had showed him this thread because of his interest and well next thing I know he was packing up the trailer for Colorado.

If you like I will get some pictures of the CJ5 along side it's military cousin the M38A1. I thank you very much maxa for the opportunity to see such a beautiful Jeep first hand.

My friend and I wish you and your mother the best.

God Bless.

Guy and Born2Jeep have the right idea. Your dad kept it for a reason, maybe grandkids, maybe you.............whatever.
I have a '57 Tbird thats been in the family since new and every once in a while think about selling it but the memories and something else keeps telling me not to. There's your dad's heritage and legacy, an old time sense of freedom he felt when he drove it, and that of pure American Jeep in the old thumper. I wish I still had my dad around or more of his old classic trucks, cars, or outboards to drive, polish, and remember. Don't blow it.

CJ5 Runs again!!

Well the new owner got my (former) CJ5 to run with only two days of work! Had a few problems, but hats off to him!!

My father would be happy to see someone enjoy it, with the 20 to 25 year slumber it took!

Good Jeeping to him!
