I have a 59 CJ5, and I call my Willys "Willy".
It's mostly stock and I added Saginaw steering. The body is rough, but it kicks butt off road. I have owned it for 25 years and don't get to use it as much as I like.
I gotta make a plug here for CJ5's--weren't they the longest running body style? Or did CJ7's stick around longer?
Larry's Comment: Thanks for the great photo Lee! Man, that's a great shot of you (I'm assuming that's you) and your CJ5 with the Southern Utah backdrop.
The CJ5 had a run of 29 model years from 1955 through 1983, while the CJ7 was sold from 1976 through 1986 (11 model years).
Keep on Jeepin' Lee!
