Ex-Swiss Army CJ5

I will be looking at an Ex-Swiss Army CJ5 for sale here in Italy. Here are some of the pix the seller has sent to me.

The chassis number is 8305-231345. Do the pix and the chassis number tell the approximate year of manufacture, etc?

Thanks in advance!

8305 is Universal CJ-5 Open Body 231345 is your serial number which comes out to a 1967 built in mid May. That is a very good looking Early CJ-5. You will want to join http://earlycj5.com/xf_cj5/index.php for all of the information you will ever want to know.
