V6-225 with emission controls was the original motor.

8305017 359208 breaks down to:

83 = Universal CJ5
05 = Open Body
0 = Universal/Disregard/Roadster Open Body (Jeepster)
1 = Left Hand Drive
7 = V6-225 With Emissions

the last Six = Sequential Serial Number

If you would look in your owners manual you would figure it out.

Seriously? An owners manual that's still with a 41 year old vehicle?

Go back to the TJ forums.

BTW, I happen to have some owners manuals from the 70s. They don't have VIN decoders in them.

Nothing to decode. They are just the sequential build numbers. Probably started out at 100001 when Kaiser took over from Willys and went up from there.

It all depends on who built it. Knowing THAT will help.

Sounds strange, but the sequence (serial number) wasn't always sequential.

I'd rather be lost on the trails than found at home!

That means it's no earlier than a 1963. (That's the 1st year the name "Kaiser" appeared)
84= CJ6A
22= "Tuxedo Park Mark IV" Trim *

As best as I can figure, the Mark "IV" was only offered in 1964.

It should have:
- Chrome front bumper
- Chrome hood badges
- Windshield clamp catch
- Chrome drop down license plate holder
- Chrome tail lamps
- Hubcap displaying the “Jeep” emblem
- Column shift

And it's apparently a rare bird! Only about 460 were built! They weren't too popular at the time.

I can't nail it by S/N, but the model makes me fairly certain I'm right. (It's that 8422 code)

I'd rather be lost on the trails than found at home!

Sounds about right I had it between 61and 64 and I guess I got a steal at 600.00 with minimal rust for the year
