Project '73 CJ5 what years are compatible?

I found and bought a '73 CJ5 w/304. Almost no rust all original and complete except it's missing the radiator and some minor things here and there. It hasn't run for a couple years but was running when parked (supposedly). No top, no seats. Oh yeah I got it for $500. My question is, what years of CJ5 are the same or compatible? In other words what year model tops/doors etc will fit? Some one told me 1955 to 75 were the same but I wanted to check here with the experts to see for sure. Thanks in advance.

You're one of us lucky few having an "intermediate". Parts are hard to come by - Compatable years 72-75. Good luck and congratulations.

Most everything that will attach to the tub is going to be compatible with 55-75, including soft tops.

The front clip got longer in '72 for the AMC engines.
