Here' s my 64 CJ5 i have picked up at auction for $950 here in PA.
The date as a type this i got the engine running after being sitting in a field next to a fence for 17 years. Runs good & idles. It will need all new tires but really just the fronts need replaced.Little did i know this has left hand threads on the lugs. And yes this was a tight fit in that trailer with the roll bar 1" to the ceiling.

Remember im 17 years old.
Since i cant put a link to my Youtube Channel just search ( Kyle Forbes ) & you will see the videos of it running.

So far we have decided to go military theme, so Olive Drab. Deadline for the project is May 31 or before my 18th birthday June, 11.
i have amno cans. using a 50 cal for a center consle.
I'll buy new tires once i have it driving.
I was in the US Naval Sea Cadets so i have military uniforms i can wear when i drive the Jeep.
I'll build a custom overland trailer when i have the jeep on the road. 1 step at a time/ project at a time.

I found a 1950s CJ with a OG hardtop 5 miles from my house in a field. Sticker on the window is from 1983. Im trying to see if i can buy it for parts.
