1973 Jeep CJ-5 None (The Jeep)
Last updated Apr 11, 2011
We bought this 73 Jeep in Oklahoma City in 1975, drove it 285,000 miles and sold it in San Diego in 2003 for more than I paid for it 28 years earlier. The new owner wanted it just for the body to build a rock crawler.
258CI inline six, 3 speed trans
Didn't have any
The original color was an orange red. We painted in dark gunmetal metallic grey in 1982. The cheap paint job lasted about 5 minutes. Then painted dark blue for a few years, and finally painted it Candy Apple Red Matallic.
