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!
