Picked this up about a 1 1/2 years ago. Going to be a slow project due to funds, but I can honestly say it's been the most fun toy I have had yet!

It's a 1969 CJ5 with the Dauntless odd fire V6, a 3-speed, and Warner over-drive transfer case.

It has a reinforced roll cage and I'm adding things a little all the time. Parts are hard to find I have found out.

It has just got its first new set of rubbers on it. It had 31x10.50-15's and now it has Mastercraft MT's 33x12.50-15's which means lots better traction!

Still looking for parts reasonable. Needs wiper motor,outside mirrors and about anything else that I can get my hands on. So if you have any spare parts for sale, hit me up!

Also, just installed new brakes,wheel cylinders, master cylinder, and a clutch kit. But, done tore 1st gear out some how. Anyone got a 3-speed tranny for this CJ for cheap, or know how I can fix it?

I'm new to the Jeep thing so I'm learning as I go. Also, I noticed they seem to load up a lot on the carb on take off, but idle and go fine.

Any help appreciated.

Larry's Comment: Thanks for the extra photos, Bill.

I may have a few spare parts that will fit

Bill in Muncie I have a '71 Jeepster with a Dauntless and 3-speed.

Front clip is in good shape. All 4-wheel drive and engine work. If you want spare parts all this was built on a CJ6 frame so most of it will work.

$700 dollars and I do have the title. It is in East Tn close to Bristol . The story on this one is it was rebuilt and got less than 500 miles till the owner was kicked by a horse and killed. Family parked it in barn till I acquired it.

Quite a find really, but the body is rough except the front clip and dash.

e-mail me if your interested
