Brought home a new CJ tonight!!

Just thought I'd post to say I just brought home another jeep tonight. My second one within 2 weeks. No this one doesn't run either, hehe. It's a 1974 CJ-5 with 49,000 original miles on it, has a 304 V8, with the 3 spd. tranny. It's in pretty good shape, but needs some body work and a new timing chain and gears. I start work on it tomorrow, hope to have this one running soon as it doesn't need as much as my '82 CJ-7 I'll get some pictures if anyone is interested.

Why wouldn't we want pictures? I'm always curious to see other CJ-5's since there aren't many near me. Every once in a while I'll see one, but thats rare and far in between.

My jeep is a '74 CJ5 as well....they are kind of an odd year......but I think they are one of the best from the factory. I'd love to see pics!

I'll have pics up in a couple of days, and I paid $750 for it. It's needs a timing chain and gears, and a few other little things, but should be able to keep the whole deal under $1000 to get it running properly
