I bought this Jeep in 1972 for $1,325.00.

It was an upgrade from a 1969 CJ-5 with a Hurricane 4. I really liked the increased power with the V-6 and with 12" wide rims I was able to run the sand dunes of Lake Michigan.

Still own it after 38 years. I had to replace the body in 1980 along with the front fenders.

The drive train is still original along with the hood and grill.

This Jeep has been a big part of my life. I still tow it up to upper Michigan, ride the trails and over to Silver Lake, and ride the sand dunes.

I hope to be able to pass it along to my nephew when the time comes.

Larry's Comment: Sounds like some great memories Robert. Would love to see an actual photo of your Jeep if you have one available. Thanks!

Love the Tuxedo

I have had a 1966 Tuxedo Park sitting behind the barn for 4 years. We are re-doing it now and I am so excited I can't stand it. I have wanted a Jeep since I was 16....I am in my 50's...it's about time. Love to see picture of yours and I would love to know more about this Jeep.
