'63 CJ5
« on: November 22, 2014, 08:03:48 PM »
Just picked this up.  1963 CJ5- very little rust and pretty original.  Jeep was originally from Colorado and was shipped here in early 2000 to sit in a garage and be driven once in a while.  80 year old owner wasn't able to get in or out of it.  Took it out this weekend and it ran great-
Not sure what the plan is for this one is but my wife is wondering why I have/need 4 CJ5s

Hey Matt, looks nice! Good luck with it. Just tell the wifey to mind her own business or you will place restrictions on how many pocketbooks and pairs of shoes she can own at one time  ;D

My wife is very understanding of my problem- But one will have to go at some point.
Did some more research- black was not an option in 63- This Jeep was originally "Indian Ceramic" or an orange pink.
The red grill and dash are not original to this Jeep but correct to the era.
Pink Jeep might become my wife's- then I would only have 3.
