Project? 1966 CJ5 or 85'-'87 stock jeep

Trying to decide on a original CJ5 1966 model or a newer '85-'87 jeep to restore and or build up?

The '66 CJ5 can be purchased for around $1,500 dollars, body and frame are in decent shape minimal rust, has original hurricane 4-banger. and hard top. I'm concerned with the ability to upgrade this jeep economically vs upgrades to a newer jeep.


I also have the option of picking up a '85-'87 jeep for $3,500 all stock with a hard top (not sure of drive train or motor) body is in good shape original wheels etc.

This will be a play toy with the option to be driven on road if required.

I'm not afraid of the work both jeeps will need motor upgrades I'm sure.


Thanks for the input.
