Junkhead CJ5

by Gerry
(New Gloucester, Mainsail )

Found an old CJ5 sitting in the woods.

The engine was all locked up. Transmission and transfer case full of water and the body rough.

Tore motor down, honed cylinders, rebuilt head, new carb., put new seals and fluid in transmission and transfer case, new clutch, and 2 new tubes for tires.

I have a total of $700 bucks in this old 1962 CJ5 including the $250 I spent to buy it. I drive it everyday no matter how ugly it is.

Larry's Comment: Beauty is in the eye of the beholder...but if it runs, then who cares either way? Send us some photos if you get a chance.
